GRO give Mary and Martha mmn Davies Jun Qtr 1861 with same page no 6a 710 in Ellesmere Reg Dist of which Great Ness is a part.
Looks like they were twins and both age 10 in 1871.

Baptism 1856  in Great Hanwood - parents Edward and Margaret. Edward a labourer.

Added - not too convinced about this though.

Could be, but there were about 60 million Edward Joneses in Shropshire at that time, and a similar number of Marthas and Janes.

Hanwood is to SW of Shrewsbury

Yes, a bit too far for my liking but not impossible of course.

You were right. Martha was baptised on the same day as Mary - they were 10 year old twins.

Why couldn't I have had ancestors with unusual names?

If you can face it, I'll post another Edward Jones query, with new evidence from a DNA match and see if I can get fresh eyes on a long lasting brick wall.

Don't remind me about my Joneses - got too many of those!

Any more info about 'your Martha' ?

Did you change your reply Mike - you said that your Martha was b. 1855  so this wasn't her  ???
