Hi Keyboard86 ... thanks for info and to add to this, he unfortunately didn't make it onto the 1881 census nor can I find a baptismal record. 

I have found a marriage registration for Stephen Hunt Q2/1849 5/367 Lewisham however there is no match for the bride, Matilda.  With help on this site searching the Birth register, it seems pretty certain her name was MATILDA WOOTTEN and have located her on C1841 census with parents and siblings.  To ensure its a 100% certainty, will purchase the certificate. 

Still working to find Sarah Jane Brandon and feel there is a clue with the name Emmett or Emmitt
Thanks again Bonnie

Appears that the '0' was mistakenly written instead of '6' when looking at the actual entry on page.

Gosh Keyboard, you just amaze me ... I have spent so long looking at census records and didn't come close ... thank you so much.

So the upshot is that a Mary ? married a Mr. Jones and in 1851 living at Norwich with children John, Mary A. and George.  By 1861 she is a widow and remarried ?? to William Brandon and living at Greenwich with her children Mary and George now having the surname Brandon;  whether Sarah Jane born in 1856 (or thereabouts) is Mr. Jones or Mr. Brandon's child is to checked out but now know where the 'Jones' came from on her marriage record.  I have located a birth registration of a Sarah Jane Jones Q3/1855 1d/536 at Greenwich which is a possibility.

In 1871 Mary Jones / Brandon is once again a widow and with her is son John Jones now Brandon, Sarah Jane aged 15, and a Susan aged 10.

As a guess, I think that Mary's surname may have been Emmett or Emmitt;  as previously advised, that is the middle name that Mary's daughter, Sarah Jane, gave to her daughter Mary

Thanks again ... just fantastic.  Bonnie

 ;D Hi tell me if I did not find this birth earlier re Mary Ann Jones c 1848 ?

Mary Ann Emmett Dec qtr 1847 Glandford B 14 334
Mary Ann G*est Dec qtr 1847 Glandford B 14 3_4

The reason I ask, I went back to see if Glandford Brigg was the registration district for New Holland, and it would not come up!!
