Sarah Ann JONES

Postby SDV » Sat Jun 23, 2018 2:56 pm

I am having great difficulty in finding any information about the early life of the above named person. She was the wife of James STEWART/STEWARD.

I know that in the 1871 census she was living at Henry Street, Stepney. She is described as Anne STUARD (24), aged 24, the wife of James STUARD, a bricklayer's labourer also born in Stepney. The couple have 2 children: Rhoda (5) and Eliza (3). I know that the given birthplace of James is incorrect, as he was born in Hornchurch, Essex. - a fact which is acknowledged in later censuses. I suspect that Anne's birthplace could also be incorrect, as a result of lazy recording.

The couple formally married in February 1872 at St James the Great, Bethnal Green. James was a bachelor and a carman. Sarah Ann JONES was a spinster of full age. Her father is named as William JONES, a labourer. Both James and Sarah give their address as Blythe Street.

In the 1881 census, Sarah STEWART (32) is living in Westover Street in Mile End and is stated to have been born in St George's, Middx. Whilst in the 1891 census, Sarah STEWARD (42) is living at Duckett Street in Mile End and is said to have been born in Shadwell.

In the 1901 census, Sarah A STEWARD (53) is living with two of her children in Knott Street in Mile End. Her birthplace is St George in the East. Her husband, James STEWARD, is a patient in the Poor Law Infirmary, Bancroft Road.

She appears to die in July 1901 in Mile End, aged 54 [Q3 1901 Mile End 1c 317].

It would appear from the above, that Sarah was born in c1849 (perhaps a little later given the age on the death certificate) somewhere in East London and that her father was William Jones, a labourer. Any help in locating more details about her early life would be gratefully received. In particular I am seeking information about her birth/baptism and her residence during the 1851 and 1861 censuses.

A possibility. A family in Arbour Square, MEOT, in 1861
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:Q2ML-LC6F

Piece 293 folio 102 page 24
Head is William Jones from Hounslow. Daughter Sarah Jones, 13, born St George.
Cross referencing with younger siblings, the birth reg could be
Sep 1847, St George in the East, vol 2 page 106
Jones, Sarah Ann
mother's maiden surname Pratt

William seems to be widowed in 1871 with three children at home, not including Sarah.

The baptisms are obviously correct, not least because of the occupation and the Henry Street address. The 1861 census find is very tempting, but not a given.

I will apply for the associated birth certificate and see what that reveals.

In 1851, the family appears to be Hardinge Street, St George [HO107 1548 4 1]. Not sure that this helps.
