Janetta Pansy Glendora Banfield
« on: Thursday 16 July 15 20:10 BST (UK) »
Please help me find birth record for Janetta Pansy Glendora Banfield (as named in marriage certificate) to Charles Beer on 25/12/1890 in Devon.  She was then aged 19-20.  Her father, William Banfield (dec'd) was at some stage a policeman.  She also appears to have been born in Chelsea according to subsequent census records where she is listed as Netta Beer.

This is a long shot!
In 1871 there is a William Banfield b. Devon aged 64, living in Gillingham with wife Louisa aged 40 b. Devon and children including a Jannie Banfield aged 3, born Chatham.
RG10/911/56 p 22
Given the age difference between William and Louisa and the fact that there is a big gap in the ages of the children (20, 18, 14, 5, 3, Jannie being the youngest), I am wondering if Jannie is Janneta - Louisa's daughter and was born with another surname?
William is however a stone mason, not a policeman.

Birthplace for 1901 is Barnstaple Devon and Netta but 1891/1911 have Chelsea and Janetta.

Can't find any likely births with those first names in either place  :-\

She could be Jane Banfield born Medway Dec 1868  :-\

And there's also a Janey Banfield born Barnstaple Sep 1869 but the Netta on census seems younger than that. 

Tricky one.

A Janey Banfield birth registered Sept.1869, Barnstaple.   In 1871 she's with grandmother and aunt both named Charlotte Spear and in 1881 with aunt Charlotte.   No trace of her after then so looks like she could be Janetta.

Looks like a marriage took place in Mar.qtr.1869 Barnstaple between a William Banfield and Ann Spear (she has been missing from transcribed page but looking at original her ref. is 5b 794 the same as William Banfield.   Aforementioned Charlotte senior did indeed have daughters Ann and Charlotte.

In 1871 Janey Benfield, aged 1 bc.1870, in 1881 Jane Banfield, 11 bc.1870.

Having problems finding William and Ann after marriage but an Ann Banfield bc.1831 died Sept.1881 Barnstaple.

I'm wondering whether she adopted these rather posh names rather than being registered or baptised with them?

Good question about the witness names.

I wondered too if she made up some extra names for herself.

Might any children born clarify her surname?

When did she pass away and under what name(s)?

Found a tree which has her parents as William b1829 and Martha b1831 and names 8 siblings for Janetta born 1870.

Closest births to Janetta are Ada 1867 and Ernest ** 1871 tho it doesn't say where.

Maybe we could find those children and see if it pans out.

** there's an Ernest Banfield birth in Kensington Sep 1870 that would fit with Chelsea.
