I/m trying to find history on My great, great Grandmother, Rosina Bennett. Her details are quite a mystery. Birth Certificate shows her as born on 12th April 1880. Parents, George Bennet and Jane Lowe. Throughout her life she swapped and changed and maiden name on paperwork with both these surnames.
She married William Hopkins, who was born in Walsall 1871 and had 9 children that I know of. She left this family later in life and married Sydney Bayliss, and apparently had a further 2 children with him.

I'm new to searching the family tree, and if anyone has any information on an of the above names mentioned, I would appreciate hearing about it.

Rosina was born in Wrockwardine Wood, Shropshire. And most of the history of the above people is also thought to be living in this area.

Thanks, Rebecca

I have a Jane Lowe born 1842 living with her Father James Lowe born 1800 also a William Bennett Lowe 1864 most likely Janes son James was my Gr8 Grandfather x 4 the above was from the 1871 cencus most of the Lowe's originated from the Lilleshall {Donnington Wood/Wrockwardine Wood} area.
Also in 1901 living with George Lowe in Ketley Brook {my great Grandfather}
was  Uncle George Bennett age 57 Puddler at Iron works.
I hope this is some help funny enough my ex wife was a Bennett.

Hi

I realise this is an old post but you say Rosina was b 12.4.1880 in Shropshire.

I have checked freebmd for birth registrations under Bennett and Lowe but nothing is showing in either the June or September quarters of 1880

What surname was her birth registered under?

Birth Certificate shows her as born on 12th April 1880. Parents, George Bennet and Jane Lowe.

No marriage for parents.  Are you sure you have her birth cert and not her baptismal entry?

So Rosina could not have been born in 1880 as shown otherwise she would be on the 1881 entry.  Doesn't look as though parents married which may be why she used the surname Lowe

Births June qtr 1882

Margaret Ann Bennett June qtr 1876 Wolverhampton 6b 711?
