Emma Oliver Jones
« on: Saturday 17 December 16 22:09 GMT (UK) »
Emma Jones married John Alfred Kenyon on 10th July, 1871, at St. Michael and All Angels Church in Ashton-under-Lyne, Lancashire. She states her age as 22, and her father as William Henry Jones, a joiner. The witnesses are James Green and Julia Jones. On the 1881 Census she is recorded as coming from Shropshire, possibly Bascott or Baschurch. On the 1891 Census she is recorded as coming from Brookhouses, Shropshire and the 1901 Census records her birthplace as  Shrewsbury. On the 1901 Census she is identified as Emma O. Kenyon and on her burial record she is named as Emma Oliver Kenyon.
I cannot find her, with any certainty, prior to her marriage.
I should be grateful if anyone could suggest any leads.

Hmm. Emma Kenyon's ages per the censuses suggest that she was born circa 1844-1847.

Hi is this a repeat of the Emma Oliver baptism I located in Shrewsbury Mother Harriet?

If so would be best if you gave your opinion of the replies given on your earlier thread?

EDIT as an example at marriage Emma states aged 22 eg  b c 1849 in 1901 as Emma O states b c 1845?

I don`t know of a Bascott in Shropshire but there is a Batchcott.  This is border territory with Hereford so the 1871 Emma Jones born Hereford c.1846/7 and a Servant in Ashton under Lyne may well be yours.
