Personal Information    |    Sources    |    All    |    PDF

  • Name Jane POTTER  [1, 2
    Christened 4 Mar 1788  East Horsley, Surrey, England Find all individuals with events at this location  [1, 3
    • The marriage register does not give Jane's age, but the 1841 Census gives it as 50. If that age is to be taken literally, then she would only have been 11 years old when she married, but we know that in 1841 the enumerators were instructed to round ages down to the nearest multiple of 5, which means that Jane could have actually been as old as 54 in 1841, consistent with a birth date of 1788. Even with a birth date of 1787 or 1788 she would have only been 14 or 15 years of age; not normal, but not unheard of either.
