Jane Agnus Bevan/Beavan (Inquests)

by Paul Andrews @, Shropshire, England, Saturday, February 08, 2014, 20:38 (2417 days ago) @ MPGriffiths

"Born 20 Sept 1840 (supposedly Bristol or Gloucester)
Married 17 Nov 1864 in Winchester"

Checking Gloucestershire BMD Indexes between 1838 and 1845 there is not a record of the birth of Jane Agnus Bevan/Beavan anywhere in Gloucestershire. There is a birth of Jane Bevan in Gloucester in 1840, mother's former name-Deane, Office-Gloucester, St John the Baptist, Register-2, Entry-189.

Perhaps the key to solving this puzzle is, as MPGriffiths suggests, in obtaining the marriage certificate to show Jane's father, especially if Jane's marriage to Emanuel Butcher was not her first.
