Looking for this family please, in 1841 and/or 1851. To see if there are other children than the three I have.

John JENKINS, born Aspley Guise, Bedford abt 1801
wife Jane, born Wavendon, Buckingham
sons James and Joseph both baptised 1830
daughter Lydia - birth registered Woburn 1840, baptised Aspley Guise

I have the 1881 entry for John and Jane, which shows them both born abt 1805.

thanks
Christine

1841 census Aspley Guise Reference HO 107/5/1

John Jenkins age 35 agricultural labourer. Jane age 35 born Wavenden

Sarah age 15, James 13, Joseph 11, Lydia 1. That is quite a gap between Joseph and Lydia. They were all born in Bedfordshire. Still can't find any of them on the 1851 census. Will look again later.

Hi Christine
Still can't find them in 1851 but here they are in 1861 RG 91003
Aspley Guise Aspley Heath John 55 ag labourer, Jane 55, Thomas 16 ag labourer, Mary 12.

The next household is James Jenkins 33 ag labourer, Sara Ann wife born Ireland 33, Elizabeth Ann dua 14 born Middlesex, John 9 b Aspley, Arthur 6 Aspley, Catherine 4 b Aspley.

1871 RG 10 1557 Aspley Guise Aspley Heath

John Jenkins 66 labourer, Jane 66 lace maker, Mary Ann dau 22 bonnet sewer, Henry Jeffery grandson 12 scholar born Woburn Sands.
Seeing that James' son was born in Middlesex I will go there and have a look for John and Jane in 1851.
