Hi, I have a little bit of a puzzle regarding my ancestor Jane WILLIAMS/HEATH that i hope to try and clear up.
On her daughters birth certificate (Jane LOWE (jnr) 1841, Lilleshall SHROPSHIRE) her parents are stated as James LOWE and Jane Lowe formerly WILLIAMS.
I have managed to locate a marriage for a James Lowe, but to a Jane HEATH in WELLINGTON Shropshire in 1827, The eldest daughter was born in 1827 (Baptised in St.George Shrewsbury Shropshire) So the dates/place do seem to add up, and is the only marriage I can find for a James Lowe and Jane.
I thought perhaps she was married previously, and have used the Williams and Heath Surnames to try and see if that was the case also, but with no luck.
I also searched for a Jane Heath, in Birth Records (She records her year of birth as 1804, 1806 and 1808 and different places of birth also : Muxton, Lilleshall and Wrockwardine Wood - Shropshire) and have found no one to match her there either. Though there are multiple Jane Williams in Shropshire.
I hope this makes sense - its all a bit puzzling! The whole family in general over 3 generations have been a little hard to put together for various reasons and seem to be a little evasive...
I thought perhaps a fresh set of eyes may be able to help - as Ive been working on this part of the family for quite some time.
Thank you in advance
