red mail Jane Ridgewell Toppesfield/Wethersfield
I would very much appreciate help in finding the parents and siblings of Jane Ridgewell. Jane married William Patten about 1830 and I have her in the 1841 to 1891 censuses all in Braintree or Bocking, except for the 1881 where she is a widow and living in St. Luke, Finsbury. She was consistent with her age (39 in 1851 to 69 in 1881) so probably born 1811/1812. She gave her place of birth as Toppesfield three times and Wethersfield once. Is it possible that someone could look at the parish registers for these parishes......It would help me make a big leap backwards on the family history. Joe
