Hannah Jenkins b1782

1818 There is a re-marriage of Richard Jenkins, widower, to Hannah Rowlands on 17 Oct 1818. It would appear that this marriage produced the children on the chart below. Certainly Mary is the product of that marriage, and the mother of Mary is Hannah Rowlands. The other baptisms in the parish church do not give the mother's maiden name, but appear to be this family. Richard Jenkins is dead by 1841 census, so little more can be gleaned about him.

It is not possible to say with any certainly whether or not "my" Richard Jenkins, is the same man that re-married Hannah Rowlands. There are a number of other contemporary Richard Jenkins in the area of the same sort of age at this time.
