The Family of Jane Jones (b.1874 in Carno)

Jane Jones (1874 - 1916) was born Minffordd, Carno, Montgomeryshire (Mid Wales).  As far as I can tell she was the 5th child of Richard Jones (1840 - 1930) and Sarah Jones (nee Hamer) (1846 -1925).   The family were Welsh Cavinistic Methodists.  Jane married James John Scott (1876-1954), a market gardener, in Toxteth Park Liverpool in 1900.

Their first child, Esther Elizabeth Scott, was born later that year 1900.  My understanding is that Jane came for the birth so that she could be supported by her mother, as Esther was born in Carno.  However, Esther was baptised in Edge Hill, Liverpool on the 23rd December 1900.  The 1901 census shows James, Jane and their young daughter, Esther living in Wavertree, Liverpool.


She died in May 1916; place of death was Toronto Canada.    Her body was brought back to Wales and she is buried with her parents and her sister Annie at Carno Church.
