Jane Langley

Jane Langley

This past weeks challenge for Week 32 = 32. Amy Johnson Crow’s challenge was to write about one of your 32 3rd-great-grandparents. For me I have only identified 27 of my 32 and for my husband’s family I have only identified 19. I have a lot more work to do.
So let see, what have I learned about my mother’s, mother’s, mother’s, mother’s, mother- Jane Langley.

This is my maternal line which relates to my mitochondrial DNA. That is so neat to think that I could carry the same DNA that Jane Langley carried in her cells.
Jane was baptized on 1 July 1811 to Edward and Mary Langley in Warwickshire England.

My grandmother talked about the three Langley beauties. Jane, Polly and think it was Sarah. But according to the records I have Jane’s sisters being Myra (or Mira), Elizabeth and Mary. So who are Polly and Sarah did grandma make that up? I have learned that Polly can be a nickname for Mary, okay. Now that leaves Myra or Elizabeth for the Sarah in grandma’s story? Myra never married and Elizabeth never goes by the name Sarah in any of the records I have found. Elizabeth married quite well and I told a story for her family in #43 John E. Sly.

Jane Langley married George Jones a widower on 25 September 1834 in London England

I was unable to find them in the 1840 U.S. Census, but after years of looking for their daughter in the 1850 US Census I finally found her at home in New York with her parents and a brother, George M. and sister Cth.

Here I found:Geo. Jones (45) a Laborer from England, Jane (38) also born in England, Geo M. (12) born in England, Ada (13) born in England and, Cth (2) a female born in New York.

From this I surmised that they came to the United States sometime between 1838 and 1848 and then I discovered this:

Here we can see that on 22 April 1844 the ship Franconia arrived in New York out of Liverpool England with a George Jones 37 years of age, a farmer, along with Jane (30), Ada Jane (6), George (4), Alfred (2), and Walter an infant.

What happened to Jane’s other children in the 1850 census, Alfred and Walter?

At this time I went back to looking for Jane and family in England in the 1841 census. I discovered Ada Jane Jones with her grandmother and  a cousin Sarah Plumbridge (did grandma get Elizabeth’s daughters name mixed up with her?). But where is the rest of the family? Still have not found them for that census.

I did find where her sons Alfred and Walter were baptized in Liverpool Englnd before their sailing to America.

That is about all I have on Jane Langley Jones. I feel like George and Jane may have returned to England after their daughter ( my 2x great grandmother) married Joseph Booth. So while I finally found the Jane Langley I have yet to complete her story.
