Hello and welcome to Rootschat.
I'm afraid I hadn't pursued any further with Jane's illegitimate son William. Jane dying in 1850 in England matches with what Millipede found.
Eliza Tucker nee Kent was my 2nd cousin 4 times removed and 4th cousin 3 times removed (due to a cousin marriage bridging a generation between her maternal grandparents - Thomas Hawkins and Elizabeth Hawkins).
I will see what I can find on William. I wonder who looked after him after Jane's death, he would have been only about a year old. And his closest relatives had already emigrated.

Thank you. I'm struggling with him in 1861 as well. Will have a trawl round wider family, or he may have ended up in an orphanage. If he became a bricklayer he must have learnt his trade somewhere.

1851 there's a Jane Tucker age 20 born Wanborough lodger in Stratton St Margaret with a William Tucker 1.

Probably his birth in Mar 1850 Highworth no mothers maiden name

Baptism 7 Apr 1850.

Just found that baptism record image - the vicar wrote it sideways! Why on earth  ???

Maybe the Vicar had too much wine :)

Off to bed,

Found William and Sarah's marriage record at St John the Evangelist, Westminster. He names his father as Edward John Tucker - bricklayer. Witnesses Maria Tucker and Richard Johnson.
Seems rather a specific name for a father - is he a relative or does an Edward John something else feature in his life?

1871 in Westminster living in the Harper household we have;
Maria Tucker   24 Orphan Tailoress born Westminster
Frederick Tucker   16
Alfred Tucker   14
George Tucker   10

1861 they are the children of James/Caroline Tucker.
Jame married Caroline BRIGGS 1866 and he was a Widower.
James is born c 1801 Devon.

Cant see any connection to Wiltshire so may not be the correct Marriage witness.
