Roman Catholic parishes/ Churches on Finsbury/ City borders
« on: Thursday 02 April 15 21:08 BST (UK) »
I think my great grandmother, Janetta Jones/ Moxon/ Wilson will have been baptised in a RC church in about 1858. I have found her in only 2 censuses before her early death in 1896. In the 1881 census she said she was born in the City and in 1891, in Finsbury. Can anyone help with possible RC churches in the vicinity of the City and Finsbury borders? And where their records may be? RC ancestors are new to me and I live in the Manchester area.

Hi

Quote
Janetta Jones/ Moxon/ Wilson


Was she born as Jones then married twice?

Can you confirm her christian name as there is no Janetta Jones marriage to a Moxon or Janetta Wilson death in 1896

Her maiden name was Jones when she registered the birth of her illegitimate son, William Henry Moxon, claiming to be married to William's father of the same name, in 1879. There was no marriage between them.
 She continued to call herself Moxon when she, now a spinster, married Thomas Stapley in 1880. In 1881, Thomas said William, her son's occupation was "illegitimate". She had a son called Charles the following month.
Thomas died in May 1884 and in summer 1885, she gave birth to Frank Wilson, son of Frank Wilson. They had 2 more children before they married in 1893. After 1 more child was born and died, she died in 1896. (of TB and not surprisingly, of exhaustion). Her mother, who was a Roman Catholic, was Irish, called Mrs Barnard(2nd marriage), living in Dalston, came to her funeral. About 10 years later she asked Janetta's daughter  (Jeanette, aka Jeanetta, 7 different spellings the only consistent parts being initial J, then A, then a N, with varying letters between and following) my grandmother, to go to live in Ireland with her. She didn't. Incidentally, in both her marriages, claiming to be Moxon, she gave 2 different names for her "father" Moxon, and 2 different occupations.

Can anyone help with possible RC churches in the vicinity of the City and Finsbury borders? And where their records may be?

St Mary Moorfields seems a good possibility. I think baptisms have been transcribed only up to 1839, so you'll need to contact Westminster RC Diocesan Archives ...

Thank you, Bookbox. I'll have a go in the morning, though they might be otherwise engaged, tomorrow. It's the one day in the year when I think it's proper to eat Hot Cross Buns (well, Saturday, too).
