Jane McKnight
« on: Monday 27 April 20 06:58 BST (UK) »
Hi Everyone,

I wonder if someone would be able to help me find who Jane McKnight is or any other info about her.

I have her on the 1841 census - Jane - age 63 yrs widow - an innkeeper -with her daughter Elizabeth McKnight b. about 1817 Whitehaven, Cumberland.

On the 1851 census, Jane - age 73 yrs is with Elizabeth who is now married to John Nicholson - a mariner - and 3 children. The census says Jane was born Lumplugh (?) Cumberland.

I can't seem to find a marriage record for Jane anywhere or if she had anymore children or who her parents were.

The only Jane I could find in Cumberland was "Jane Tallentire" but no marriage.

Seeing she was widowed by 1841, I looked for a McKnight who died between 1817 and 1841 and found an index to Lancashire Wills & Probate FindMyPast 19 Sep 1821 -  John McKnight, Spirit Merchant of St Bees, Whitehaven Cumberland.

St Bees Whitehaven is the area of the 1841 census.

There is no baptism record for Elizabeth that I could find to see who her father was or his occupation so the above is only assumption.

I would be so gratefully appreciative of any assistance offered. Elizabeth Nicholson's daughter Margaret Agnes b 1851 -1918 Whitehaven, Cumberland was the wife of my gt uncle John Taylor Wilson.

Thanking you so very much

Marj

Shouldn't you be looking at her marriage certificate for that information?

I would look at Elizabeth's MC but it only a civil marriage and doesn't have either fathers on it.
