« on: Friday 05 August 16 11:55 BST (UK) »
Hello

I am seeking information about the death of Harriet Jennings nee Adams. She was  bpt 13  July 1845 at St Peters, Wolverhampton. Parents William Adams and Anne?, Married William jennings at St Peters 25 December 1871, had two children William and Joseph.  Lived in Tower St Courts Birmingham in 1872, Cosely in 1881 census, Vickarage Row in Walsall in 1891 Census

Husband William died in Tower Courts, Birmingham on 13 July 1872

I can not find any trace of Harriet after 1891

I would be grateful for any help I have been stuck on this for a vewry long time

Many thyanks

Is it possible that she remarried?

There is a Harriet Jennings marrying Birmingham, in the June quarter 1891 and in the June quarter 1910.

1891: Charles Chandler or Walter Ostin (not likely as online search say he married a 19 year old)

1910: Frank Lester or Sidney Ensor

I found a death registration, but no age given, at Oldbury, JENNINGS Harriet 1893 Oldbury West Midlands Sandwell Register Office OLD/45/111
Atkinson; Badier; Cameron; Grant; Howie; Jardine; Jenkins; Kerr; Lawardorn; Lee; Linton; Lonie; McConnell; Morgan; Morrison; Murphy; O'Leary; Paton; Pratt; Robb; Williams

The 1910 marriage of Harriet Jennings was to Sidney Ensor her father on that record was Henry Jennings, so can be ruled out.

The marriage to Henry WILKES looks good,Rosie! They're under WILKS in 1901. She says she was b Birmingham 1845 which she also claims in 1891.

Hello
Thank you all for the information. Its Great.

I have sent off for a marriage certificate for Harriet and Henry Wilkes/Wilks. Walsall does sound likely. I was aware of Mary Ann Moles but had no date or wife's surname for William's first Marriage. The Mayletts and Brookes  are a whole new line to me. Thank you for taking that line further'

Many thanks for all your effort. I am very grateful.

Best wishes

Julia
