Slightly unusual that Jane married in her maiden name even though she was a widow. Not unheard of but less commonly seen.
(Unless she married a JONES as well as being nee JONES :-\)

Have you any information about her deceased first husband?

Were there half-siblings to the WOLL children?

Yes that is unusual Sue, I haven't been able to track down her first husband or if there was any children to that marriage. Looking for a particular Jones in Wales is a bit of a puzzle.

She made her mark.  I think it very likely that the clergyman simply wrote  her X mark surname as JONES because it was the name he had recorded as her maiden name.  She may well have not been aware of what the clergyman actually wrote down.   :) :)

ADD ... that same clergyman was responsible for recording any children of that first marriage and is there ...  the squiggly line to show NONE ...

JM  Edit to correct some poor grammar.

If her first husband's surname was ROBERTS  (see her parents names on the mc and where the clergy has then recorded 'maiden name Roberts')  then in 1854 there's at least three deaths indexed on the Vic BDM that may be of interest.   Two have 'place of birth' as Nth Wales and from their ages they were born 1830s..... the third one was born Sth Wales, but was aged 45...


Ref 652/1854
Evan ROBERTS, aged 19

Reg 1198/1854
Pierce ROBERTS, mother as Elizabeth WILLIAMS ... Father as Robert Pierc

I had taken that to be the maiden name of her mother, Lydia

Yes,  agree, ROBERTS ought to be the maiden name of her mum,  but I can speculate, particularly when there's a young widow with a very popular Welsh surname .... and we are given the month year but not the jurisdiction ,  I may have added 2 plus 2 and got 64... she may have arrived in Vic when it was still NSW ....  I hesitate to speculate on asking if her d.c. has any clues.... as it would be unlikely to help advance the Ah Khan Woll quest.

In Reply #8 this thread, rusted replied to my query about DC information for Jane.
