Summary

Fanny originated in Bewdley, Worcestershire and moved with the rest her family to Aston (Birmingham) some time in the 1830s. After she got married, she stayed in the area for the rest of her life.

At the time of her marriage (October 1855) she gave her age as 27, implying a birth between Oct 1827 and Oct 1828. Her baptism 25th April 1828 implies a birth that is probably after August 1827 (and before April 1828!). At her death, her age is recorded as 59, implying a birth between Sep 1826 and Sep 1827. Although some census ages have small discrepancies, we thus conclude she was born in 1827 or early 1828. She consistently gave her place of birth as Bewdley, which was the main settlement in the parish of Ribbesford (and thus where we would expect her baptism).

Fanny gave her residence as Highgate, Birmingham in her wedding certificate (1855). She was previously living in Frederick St, Birmingham (in service) in 1851. Highgate is just over a mile from Frederick St.

Notes

She was always referred to as Fanny, except at the time of her death, when the more formal Frances was used.
