Default Missing in 1861 Census

Can anyone find the following people, please?

Jane Blake or Jago born c. 1814 at Golant St Sampson, Cornwall
her children
Caroline Ann Blake or Jago born 1848
Albert Blake or Jago born 1850
Fanny Blake or Jago born 1856 both at Fowey, Cornwall

They are a complicated family!

No is the short answer!

Is any of the census missing? Does the workhouse label by initials?

And finally, did Albert die young, with surname Jago? and was Fanny in service in 1871, again with surname Jago?

I didn't expect them to be in Lostwithiel St in 1861, but they aren't there.

As I can't find any of them (though Caroline could be a servant by this stage) my gut feeling is that they were all together. I've looked a forename and date of birth, ignoring surnames, but no joy.

Thanks for looking, Phoenix. This is a query I am answering in my OPC capacity. I've got sucked in and researched a lot more than the initial query.

I'm glad it's not just me that can't find them.

John Jago should be with them too. He was Jane's stepfather. Her mother Frances/Fanny died in 1847. His death in 1862 is reported in the newspapers.

Where was John's death, in Cornwall?

I looked last night, but couldn't find anything.

I did look to see if there were any missing pages etc in Fowey in 1861 but it doesn't look like there are any issues. Do you know if those who died in the 1860s were buried at Fowey?

It looks as if the poor man was blown up by a gun exploding that he had been hired to set off at a regatta at Fowey.

If I have the right report, he was a labouring man, above 60, with a family "mostly grown up and earning their own living"

And if he was Jane's step-father, was he also the father of her children???

Henry Jago, wife and daughter are at Lostwithiel Street. He was one of John and Fanny Jago's sons.

John Jago's death:

Fowey Regatta – Fatal Accident.
Fowey Regatta took place on Wednesday last, and we regret to learn that the very commencement of the sports was attended with a frightful and fatal accident. An old gun, which had been some time unused, was placed near the Broadslip, to be fired as the signal gun for the several matches. John Jago, a man of 56 years of age, was appointed to attend and fire the gun. Jago it seems was not used to artillery and the gun was not examined before it was loaded, and it is possible there may have been a flaw in it. At any rate when the time came to fire the gun it burst near the muzzle. A piece of the iron of the gun struck Jago just above the ear, killed him on the spot, carrying the top of his head away, and scattering his brains. The mutilated body was removed to the College Hospital to await a coroner’s inquest. The deceased, who lived with his deceased wife’s illegitimate daughter, leaves several children. The sad event cast a gloom over the proceedings of the day.
