I am trying to track down relatives of Elizabeth Jane Burton (nee Jenner)  She married George Alfred Burton in Aston,Juxta, County of Warwick on 10th June,1851.  Her birth place was listed as being in Chatham,  Kent, England date of birth around 1831. Her parents are listed as being George Jenner (Leather Merchant) and Mary Jenner (maiden name unknown)  I am her direct relative I was formally a Burton.  They immigrated to Australia at Geelong on board the "Confiance" arriving in 1853 they then resided in Ballarat for some time.  They had twelve children.  Am anxious to pursue this part of the family tree.  Would be most greatful in hearing news .  Yours truly  Carol1957

Dear Ruth,
Just read your messages on here.  So much information on John Alfred Burton.  But I do know he had
more than one child. Horace was first born and then a girl and another boy.  I'm sure that they died
early.  I will also be sending in the mail an update on all George Alfreds children who they married.
I did get to read and copy the letter Elizabeth Jane Jenner sent home to England.  Just great. 
A real insight into early Australian living.  I loved it.  Thankyou for giving me the opportunity of viewing this,I'm absolutely thrilled to start up again in the research and actually not be stone walled.
Although I am in the process of trying to find out who Elizabeth Jane Jenners brothers and sisters were.  And the mystery that still remains.  The original Temperance Burton, her maiden name.
Can anybody help me out!!!
