In Reply to: Re: DOIDGE Bere Ferrers, Beer Ferris. Devon by Gordon of 151

My gg grandmother, Jane Ann Hoskins b. Aug 1836 ,Beerferris,Devon. Her father was James Hoskins and her mother's maiden name was Hancock. Have found a family in the 1841 census ,Beerferris, Devon, England.
James Hoskins 40 blacksmith
Elizabeth 40
Mary 12
Elizabeth 10
Jane 5
James 15 months

Found (I belive the same family)
1851 Calstock , Cornwall, England
James Hoskins 53 blacksmith CON Breage
Elizabeth 50 CON Crowan
Jane 14 DEV Beerferris
Caroline 8 DEV Beerferris
William 2 DEV Beerferris

My gg grandmother,Jane Ann Hoskins married William Hooper b 1832 Calstock, Cornwall, England. They married Aug 1854
in Middletown ,Connecticut,USA.
I believe that this is my Hoskins family but have no real proof.
Around 1871 , 3 sisters Eliza Eselby, Margaret Eselby and Lucy Eselby-- were send to Ticonderoga, New York to live with their Uncle William Hooper & Aunt Jane Ann Hoskins Hooper. Their mother was Mary Hoskins b. abt 1828
in Beerferris, Devon,& William Eselby of Devon.
I believe that Mary Hoskins is the daughter of James Hoskins and Elizabeth Hancock.
In the 1881 censuses for Bere Town, Devon
is a
Peter Doidge head 59
Grace wife 57
Caroline dau 29
Edwin son 12
Jessie Ann dau 10
ELIZABETH HOSKINS relative 80 --In the 1871 census it states Elizabeth is mother.
Peter Doidge and Grace Hoskins married Sept 1843 Tavistock
I believe that Grace Hoskins is the daughter of James Hoskins and Elizabeth Hancock.
A file on has this family--but they have Jane Ann(Anm) Hoskins married to a William Haynes and that she died in 1858. Have not been able to find William Haynes nor a death record for a Jane Haynes.I still believe that this family of James Hoskins and Elizabeth Hancock are the parents of my gg grandmother.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
