Elizabeth 'Betty' Barnes - from Devon to Staffordshire

Postby sarahlouise_robertson » Sat Mar 11, 2017 9:37 am

Morning all,

I am hoping you can help with a brick wall I've been trying to breakdown for a while now. It's my 4th Great Grandmother;

Most of my relatives are born/baptised in and around Staffordshire and Derbyshire, but Elizabeth (Betty) Barnes takes me further afield...

I have her birth as around 1785 "Ugborough, Devon, England, United Kingdom" HOWEVER, it's sometimes listed as HOGBORO, Devon; BIGBURY, Devon; UGBOROUGH, Devon - depending on the sites and sources I search.

MARRIAGE: I believe she married Richard Jenks (b.1792) on 6 Jan 1821 in the Parish of Berkswich in Stafford.

CENSUS: I have them living together in Rickerscote, Stafford on the 1841 and 1851 census which fits other records of my family. In 1871 Betty is listed as living in Huntington, Staffs with her daughter Emma (nee Jenks) Cope.

DEATH: I have as 21 July 1872 at the age of 87.
This is also mentioned in paper as "July 21, the residence of her son-in-law. Mr. Joseph Cope. Huntington. Betty, relict of Mr. Richard Jinks, of Rickerscote, aged 87


What I would like to find is details of her ELIZABETH's BIRTH and BAPTISM and her parents in Devon....
I want to work out what might have brought her to Staford.

Thanks for your help in advance. If it helps, my tree is public on Ancestry "Robertson Family Research"

Sarah x

PS. Jenks is often listed as Jinks

Thank you for the help, it's much appreciated.

I am going to add the info to my tree and see what it throws up and fixing other bits around it.
It also seems she was mainly a Betty' not an Elizabeth too.
