Possibly a plain Jane and jazzed it up - a lot.  The others (if they are her siblings) have plain names.

Might help to find her death to see what name(s) she uses.

I'm behind the "jazzing up" of a plain name. I spent years looking for a Jean, with no result - then found she was a Jane who had "rearranged" the letters in her name. I also know of another who used a pet name throughout her life, and her children were all convinced that that was her actual name, even when she died!

Hi all, was fascinated with this thread for a couple of hours last night, if this is the correct family link to Janetta which I am still unsure of, I have found Horace, Herbert and Ernest married by 1891/1901, but 1881?

Yes, 1881 is a mystery for all the known children except for Ernest (with his father) and Ada (in service in Fulham). Very frustrating as one would hope they might lead us to Janetta.

1881 may well be the key....can't see a death for Martha anywhere as has been said.  The other kids turn up after 1881 so where on earth are they?!

I wonder too if we are looking at a split - William has Ernest, Martha takes the rest of the kids elsewhere?  Have tried knocking off the surnames in a search on 1881 but that has turned up nothing too...  :-\ 

Something drastic has clearly happened to William, again on the premise that we are with the right family, to go from Police Officer to Labourer in the space of a few years.  Are there any Police records online?

There are various Metropolitan Police records in the National Archives (series reference MEPO) including leavers' records, but not so far as I know indexed by name for dates early enough to capture William's tenure.  He seems to have left the police force between the 1861 and 1871 censuses.

Do we start looking sideways to see if the kids are with grandparents?

William Banfield and Martha Smallwood married at St Mary, Broadwater, Sussex on 18 January 1852.  He was a labourer then, son of James Banfield (also Labourer) and she was the daughter of Joseph Smallwood (Carpenter).  Witnesses were Hannah and William Grevett.

It looks as if Martha was with her sister and brother in law before her marriage, unless she was just there for census night. Could be that her parents had died.
