Adding Jane

Further searching hasn’t uncovered any vital records online that support the existence of little Jane JENKINSON. who died her infancy and is remembered on the family headstone. (Last Saturday’s post, Over the Target.)

She appears, however, in the comprehensive Filey Jenkinson pedigree in Filey: Fishing, Faith and Family by Irene Allen and Andrew Todd. Published by Blackthorn Press in June this year, it updates and greatly expands Filey: A Yorkshire Fishing Town (1985).

Jane appears in Chart E5 as one of almost eighty descendants of Thomas Jenkinson & Mary CASTLE. She is shown arriving after Mary Elizabeth (1848-1850) and before Mary Ann (1852-1853). I have added her to the FamilySearch Shared Tree, offering 1850 as the year of her birth and death.

Some information on this ‘COLE’ branch was obtained from a family bible reportedly discovered in a cottage awaiting demolition.

A note on Chart E5

I am reluctant to banish ‘Wrong Robert’ without first establishing his parentage. Perhaps someone else will do the dirty work.
