That's very close to where her birth is given on a census - Cinderford, Gloucestershire.

Thanks i will look into this.  I often get mistaken when i say johns for jones. Being unable to read or write could have potentially led to jones being recorded instead of johns

Thanks I am aware or Mark and Carnation. There never seems to be a census of mark and william together when they were children although williams parents were using John not johns.

I have checked my family tree and i have a davis link already from one of william and elizas children marrying a hodgkins/hopkins/hoskins grandmother so it would seem that davis was linked to travellers in that area, going to look more into it

The years married and ages of children vary quite a lot with the various censuses. Trying to find out who Elizabeth is, is next on the list
