I don't think the Ann Jane that died in Cropper Street is the same infant.
There are two families with different jobs etc. but an unusual coincidence of names.
The Cropper St mother was also Jane and I believe the father may have been George but they were a different family.

Thanks

Where do you have Ann Jane after her birth

Have Henry and Mary Meadows been traced after this 1832 birth? If they died then adoption of the child by relatives looks a plausible scenario.

I have tried and several others have tried to make this connection without success.
I think it may be just an unfathomable puzzle who James Henry Davies was.

Thanks

Rosie 99

I don't have her anywhere after this date. But I do know from death record that her mother, Jane, died while living in Sweeting Street. This was the birthplace of all her children.

Would you or anyone know how I could maybe verify a marriage between George Davies and Mary Meadows or an adoption of James Henry (Meadows) Davies.

Thanks

Adoptions until the late 1920's were generally informal so it is doubtful you would get any evidence.  It was not unusual that a child took on the surname of their stepfather, in England you can call yourself what you like as long as it is not for fraudulent purposes.

That is what I thought. Henry Meadows was a basket maker the same as George Davies so maybe if the parents died James Henry was taken in by George.

I thank it may just remain conjecture.

Thanks
