My great aunt was born Jemima Carter (aka Janette) in 1885 in Potters Marston Leicestershire. She married a Mr Norris (I know not whether in UK or Australia) who, I am told, was an Australian sheep farmer. I know that in 1948 she was living in Lonsdale St Adelaide. Any further information would be useful.

My great aunt was born Jemima Carter (aka Janette) in 1885 in Potters Marston Leicestershire. She married a Mr Norris (I know not whether in UK or Australia) who, I am told, was an Australian sheep farmer. I know that in 1948 she was living in Lonsdale St Adelaide. Any further information would be useful.Do you have census info on Jemima?
In 1891, she is 7 years old and living with her parents, James and Susan and siblings, Alice, Elizabeth and Ernest in Potters Marston at Shaw Barn Cottage. James is 47, a farm labourer, born in Earl Shilton, Leicestershire. Susan is 45, born in Potters Marston. Alice, Elizabeth and Ernest are 10, 5 and 2 respectively. Alice was born in Hinckley, Leicestershire and Jemima, Elizabeth and Ernest in Potters Marston. [Reference: RG12/2501 Folio 117 Page 23]
In 1901, she is 16 years old, a general servant and still with her family at 106 Northampton St., Leicester, Leicestershire. Mother Susan, 56, is a widow and working as a charwoman. Susan's birthplace is given as Stoney Stanton, Leicestershire. Also at home is sister Isabel, 26, a tailoress, born in Stoney Stanton. James Frank, 10 months, born in Leicestershire [no town given] is listed as Susan's son.

In 1871, James, 29, is a railway labourer and Susan, 25, is a Seamstress. They are living on ?Clint Hill Lane in Stoney Stanton with sons James, 4, a scholar, and Thomas, 1, and a boarder, Ann GOODMAN 30, single and also a seamstress. Birthplace for both James Sr. and Jr. is given as Earl Shilton. Birthplace for Susan, Thomas and Ann is Stoney Stanton. [Reference: RG10/3235 Folio 118 Page 8]
In 1861, James, 20 is a "cow-man" living in the household of Thomas Kirby OLDACRE, 36, a farmer of 180 acres employing 3 labourers and 1 boy in Stapleton, Leicestershire. [Reference RG9/2263 Folio 39 Page 2]
There is a marriage record for a James CARTER and a Susan GOODMAN in the June quarter of 1866 in Hinckley, Leicestershire [Reference: Volume 7a Page 95] which looks like a good match for your couple. Perhaps Ann GOODMAN is Susan's sister. Obtaining a copy of the marriage certificate would give you fathers' names.
In 1861, there is a Susan GOODMAN, 15, born in Stoney Stanton, working as a general servant in the household of John and Lydia HACKETT on Long Street which is near Clint Hill Lane. John is a tailor and grocer. [Reference RG9/2259 Folio 124 Page 9]
Just to round things out...
In 1861, Ann GOODMAN is 19, an assistant laundress, living with her parents and younger siblings in Stoney Stanton. There's a good possibility this is Susan's family as well.
Parents are Thomas and Elizabeth GOODMAN, 45 and 46, respectively. Thomas is an ag. lab. and Elizabeth is a laundress. Both were born in Stoney Stanton. Brothers James S. and Walter, 8 and 6, were also born in Stoney Stanton. [Reference: RG9/2259 Folio 132 Page 138]
