Mary Jane Hall
Mar 1861 Clifton
Mothers name Hill
perhaps as Mary is 30 in 1891

There is a Bristol marriage Sep 1848 with a Hall and a Hill but 4 couples  :-\

Hall is James which is correct
Hill is Mary Ann

There is this family - Head of household is Elijah but transcribed as Clifer

1861 1739/40/32

Elijah Hall   25 yrs
Jane Hall   25 yrs
George S Hall 1 yr
Mary J Hall 1 month

Marriage 1857 Elijah Hall and Jane Hill on same page and children above have mmn Hill.

Not that this helps at all with the puzzle.

I wonder if her marriage certificate would help us any?  Witness names, where she was living.  Long shot but she must have been somewhere prior to marriage and witness names especially could be of use.

The one with father Elijah marries in 1884 to Charles Pine.
