I am actually looking for the father of Elijah Jacobs. I found the records you mentioned but I am having trouble finding anything further than that. Thank you for answering my reply!!

The 1881 shows son Andrew as 21 but this is the family in 1861 living in Figheldean and all born there


Elijah Jacobs   34
Elizabeth  32
Alfred  11
Fanny 9
Andrew Jacobs   13 plough boy
RG9 Piece 1311 Folio 5 Page 3

So this is possibly the marriage

Marriages September qtr 1849   
Elijah    Jacobs    Amesbury    8   425  - there is an Elizabeth Peck on the same page

The 1841 has a 12yr old Elija Jacobs in Figheldean transcribed as Eliza Jacob but he is not with parents so you need to buy a copy of his marriage cert to get his fathers name.  He was at Alton Farm as a stableboy

HO107 Piece 1165/8 Folio 11 Page 15

On the same image is this Jacobs family living at Alton Cottages - all b Wiltshire.  William may be Elijah's father but you still need to buy the marriage cert to confirm it

William Jacobs   45 agric labourer
Harriet     40
Charles     15
Frances     15
Uriah     12
Josiah     10
Elisha     8
Arthur  6
Emanual     1

Welcome back after your long absence.

Perhaps you could tell what definite information you have on your 3rd gg. 

Do you now know when and where Elijah was born?  Are you looking for information regarding his parents?

You were given information by other RootsChatters but did not really confirm whether any of it was correct.
