Benjamin Ellis & Jane Vittoria Curtis
« on: Saturday 03 April 21 11:33 BST (UK) »
Can anyone find any info on this couple please.

All I have on them is their marriage on 31 July 1831 at St George The Martyr Southwalk. I then know that they had the following children:

Maria (1832)
John (1834)
Emma (1837)
Benjamin (1840)
Sarah Ann (1842)

And I have them in 1841 living in Wakefield. Both Benjamin & Jane have a dob as abt 1811 and both were not born in county. Benjamin is a Bookkeeper.

In 1851 the children are living alone with no parents. I can't find any other info on Benjamin or Jane.

Any help would be appreciated please.

Did you check Family Search?

Marriage transcription shows both spellings of her middle name

Have you already discounted the Benjamin Ellis death in 1850 or the Jane Ellis deaths in 1842 & 1850

Wakefield & Dewsbury RDís seem to be where they were living between 1841 & 1851

Thank you everybody. You all seemed to have found it quickly. I don't know how I missed the deaths. And it's led me to Jane's parents. Unfortunately I've been unable to find anything on them so far, but I appreciate all your help.
