There is a Billingham + Monday marriage in Q3 1892 in Brixworth, Northamptonshire!

Just found a tree on Ancestry (I know) that suggests that this Josiah lived until 1954 and that this Annie died in 1938, still married to Josiah.

So if correct, they are ruled out.

The best I can come up with is a Jane COLBOURN born in 1841 in Hungerford [Q3 1841 Hungerford 6 178], which may or may not be her.

Possibly is this one in 1851, Jane  Colebourn, age 9, born Kintbury. Parents seem to be John and Sarah.

I'm getting confoozled (again!) The timeline for Annie Jane seems to be:

c1835-1855 birth (Berkshire?)
1873 marriage Merthyr Tydfil Jane COLBOURN to Alfred HEWITT
1873 Merthyr Tydfil 30 Aug - birth of Frederick James Matthew HEWITT mmn COLBOURN
1875 Marylebone 27 Jul birth of Agnes Ellen HEWITT mmn COLBOURN
1881 census Frederick and Agnes boarding with George and Minnie EVANS in Leyton, Essex

1881 marriage Dec qtr Wandsworth Annie Jane HEWITT to William Albert BELLENGER (she 35, he 20)
1891 family on census in Groton Rd as BERRY (age 36, born Hungerford, Berks)
1901 family on census in Groton Rd as BELLENGER (age 66, born Hungerford, Berks)
1911 family on census in Groton Rd as BELLENGER (age 69, born Berkshire)
1912 burial 16 Oct 1912 Annie Jane BELLINGER of Groton Rd (age 71)

children with BELLENGER family (as per censuses)
Fredrick T c1873 (stepson, 1901), Kate c1883 (daughter 1891, 1901,1911)

Birth Dec qtr 1882 Wandsworth BELLENGER Sophie Ann Emily Kate mmn COLBOURN

This leaves questions not yer definitively solved:
1) When and where was Annie Jane born? (Berkshire looks favourite - buit it's a long way from Merthyr Tydfil)
2) What happened to Frederick HEWITT?
3) Where was Annie Jane on the 1881 census (and earlier censuses)?

Please help me to help you by citing sources for information.
