My eyes are falling out of my head looking for this family. I can account for everyone from 1851 but 1841 is proving impossible and a rather delicate question over the parentage of some of the children raises its head, lol.

I am looking for (1841 only)

Richard Jepson (1802-1843) born Darwen Lancs
Ann (wife) (1805-1873) ditto

their known children:

John 1829
Mary 1832
Betty/Betsy 1834
Henry 1837
Jane 1841

all born Darwen Lancs.

Ann has remarried in 1851 to Thomas Ingham. There is a possibility that Jane (1841) is his child, oh the disgrace!

I will be really grateful if anyone can pull this lot out of the hat - I've looked for the family under Ingham too, just in case.

Is this them?

HO107; Piece 503; Book: 10; Civil Parish: Blackburn; County: Lancashire; Enumeration District: 8; Folio: 35; Page: 25

Richard Jipson [sic] 35 bleacher
Ann 35
Mary 9
Betty 7
Henry 4
James 6 [image looks like mths has been written above the 6] and the age is in the female column, so I suspect this is Jane.

No, I'm all babied-out actually, after a week with my adorable grandson I'm on my knees!

I feel a bit stupid now that I didn't find them under Jipson - I've found them with much dafter mistranscriptions than that, with ease! Blame baby brain.
