Jane Jones of Wrexham, Denbighshire
« on: Wednesday 16 August 17 05:26 BST (UK) »
Hi

I'm after some help trying to find any info about Janes Jones.

Jane Jones was born around 1810. I cant find her baptism nor do I know who her parents were. I cant find her marriage to John Capper around 1839 but the birth of her first child was in London in 1840. Her husband also listed his birthplace as Wrexham, Denbighshire, Wales in the 1851 and 1861 census. I cant find them in the 1841 census. I think Jane died in 1871 in Wrexham but haven't purchased the death certificate to seek any confirmation of this.

John Capper died in 1888 in Wrexham

Any help is appreciated.

If they are living in the Wrexham area in 1841 then I'm afraid you won't find them.Apart from a small portion of the Wrexham Town centre the Census for the area is missing.

Hi Rosie99

Thank you for finding the 1841 census!

Are there online baptism registers which may cover Janes baptism? Id like to find out if she had siblings and who her parents were.

Thank you - the curse of such a common name as Jane Jones. Who ever would have thought.

Hopefully a marriage certificate will illuminate the matter

There was a query about this family a little while ago and at the time I tried to do a bit of investigating.  My findings are on my website under CAPPER Wrexham 53 if you'd care to take a look.

Hi there!

I'm related to this family.  Edward Henry Capper was my 2nd great grandfather who, as well as his wife and children born in England, came to New Zealand.  I would love to know how you are related?

Look forward to hearing from you.

Debbie
