Esther Elizabeth Jones, born 1842, Abergavenny
« on: Friday 12 June 20 21:34 BST (UK) »
Hello,

I wonder if anyone could take a look at one of my brick walls..

I have an Esther Elizabeth Jones born 1842, Abergavenny, Monmouthshire.
In 1869 she marries a Pollard who was a Ship's Captain and lives in Porlock. Her father is listed as Charles Jones, Farmer.
1871 she goes as Esther Elizabeth, and 1881 she's goes as Elizabeth on the census. By 1891 she had died.

I can't find her on the 1861 or 1851. Nor can I find her baptism. There is a Charles Jones farmer of 80 acres near Abergavenny, but no Esther/ Elizabeth on the census..

Have you got her birth cert or baptism entry?  It may be, that if the only ref to Charles Jones is on her marriage cert that it is a face-saving white lie to avoid the stigma of illegitimacy.

Sorry - just seen that you can't find her baptism.
