« on: Saturday 01 August 20 17:05 BST (UK) »
Please does anyone have any info on the ascendants of Francis Collins born c1831 Patcham,Sussex and his wife Anne Sanders/Saunders born c1831 Chichester.They married 20/09/1852 Marden,Kent.Her father was William Sanders.Im keen to go back as far as i can in both Francis and Annes family.
Also they had a son Thomas born c1863 Icklesham,Sussex who married Mary??? born 1860 Dartford.Children:

Thomas b1885 Portsmouth
Frank b1889 Southborough
Janette b1891 Crowborough

Register with the GRO.  https://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/certificates/Login.asp

Look up the children's births to get Mother's maiden name.

Nothing to pay, and something you can do yourself.

Thanks for the reply.I am registered on the GRO site,but i cant find any births that look right to me.One or two possibilities,but no consistent surname coming up.

Im not sure that is Esther.Theres also a Charles Williams James b1903 Milton.To be honest,in my experience,the use of multiple middle names was unusual amongst Travellers back then.It doesnt feel right to me.

1901 census https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:X9FB-BWM

1911 https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XWDP-6DY (32 years wed, and Mary ann from essex)

Where the 1881 and 1891 census entry?

Jane (1890, not 1891) baptism? She would be more likely be 9 in 1901 if b in 1891.

Cant find any of them on the 1891.I did wonder about doing a name and place of birth search for Mary,but that wont be easy with a different place of birth given on these 3 census.
