The genealogical data in these pages is accurate to the best of my current (at the time of writing) knowledge. This means it is of very variable reliability, since sources at one extreme are 100% certain (e.g. I know who I married, where and when, and the identity of my parents) to the mere rumour level, such as LDS data extracted from the IGI and Ancestral File, and reminiscences of elderly relatives, some now deceased. Anyone wishing to make any use whatever of this information is therefore strongly advised to contact me for source details.
The 1851 census shows her living with her future in-laws in St. Marks Lane, Newark, but described as being the niece of her future father-in-law. We have recently discovered that she was in fact his great-niece. It also says she was then a laundress. However, her marriage certificate less than a year later again shows her address as Tenter Buildings, and describes her as a servant, so perhaps at the census date she just happened to be staying overnight as a visitor.
On 22nd March 1852 she married William Hutchinson Shaw at the Independent Chapel, Lombard Street, Newark. They produced at least seven children, Henry born 1856, Frederic born 1859, Jane Griffiths (known as Jenny) born 22nd April 1861, Sarah A. (known as Sally) born 1863, Thomas born 1866, Francis (known variously as Dick or Frank) born 1869 and Elizabeth (known as Lizzie) born 1873.
Jane's birth certificate shows the family were living in Victoria Place (off Lombard Street), Newark in 1861, which is confirmed in the 1861 census taken a few days before her birth. The 1871 census shows they were then at 9 Egglestons Yard, Newark.
The 1881 and 1891 censuses both show her at 9 Farndon Row, Newark, where she died on 30th November 1902. The death certificate shows the cause of death as "Cerebral Haemorrhage, Acute Bronchitis, Exhaustion".
On 11th September 1832 he married Ann Marsh at Newark Parish Church.
His occupation is described on his daughter's marriage certificate as "carter".
On 6th January 1798 he married Elizabeth Smith at Newark Parish Church. The couple had a son George christened at Newark on 1st March 1800, but the child's burial is recorded on 12th March.
On his death certificate William is described as a "waterman". This explains why he lived at Constantinople Yard, which was very close to Newark Wharf. The Trent carried a great volume of goods at that time.
He died on 6th April 1839 at Constantinople Yard (at the junction of Millgate and Pelham Street), Newark. The cause of death is stated to be "spitting of blood".
The couple produced at least two other children as well as the above William. George was christened at Radcliffe-on-Trent on 3rd July 1783, and Elizabeth on 10th February 1786.
On 11th August she married John Warwick of Hawton at Newark Parish Church. The marriage record in the parish register gives her name as "Mary Ann", which of course may be what her parents intended at her christening.
