Jane Ackerman, dau. of Lawrence and Sarah - nee Denziloe - was baptised in Bridport on 7 April 1793. She was the youngest of 9 children. It would appear that she was working away from Bridport and was now in Pilsdon c. 1813 - Pilsdon is about 6 miles from Bridport - and after Banns were announced in Pilsdon she married Benjamin Welch on 17 January 1814. The lived in Pilsdon and baptised 12 children between 1815 and 1831. 3 of their children were named David [bapt. 23 Apr. 1820], Emanuel [bapt. 20 Apr. 1828] and Henry [bapt. 24 Apr. 1831]. The 1st available census - 1841 - finds a family in Symondsbury, consisting of Benjamin [age 45 - no occupation] a wife [age 45] and 3 sons David [age 15], Emmanuel [age 14] and Henry [age 11]. With rounding of ages these looked pretty close except for David who should hyave had his age rounded as 20. The rounded age for the wife was right - but the name was wrong - it was Sarah. Looking at some Ancestry trees they have Benjamin marrying Sarah Jane Ackerman - but there doesn't appear to be any records of a birth/baptism for such a girl. Leaving the 12 kids alone for the moment I tried to find Benjamin with either a spouse named Jane/Sarah in 1851. Had no luck with that search. 1861 census - RG9/1369/5/3 - still in Symondsbury. His age is 64 and his place of birth is Pildson which is consistent to a baptism found - 19 Jun. 1796 and parents Benjamin and Betty. His wife is still named as Sarah - her age is 70 - somewhat consistent with a baptism in 1793 - but the place of birth is now STOKE ABBOT and I can find no suitable baptisms in that area. 1871 census - RG10/2030/10/11 - still in Symondsbury. He is aged 75 and born Pilsdon and she - still Sarah - is aged 81 in Stoke Abbot. Both die and are buried in Symondsbury, St. Peters: Sarah 18 July 1872 - age 82. Benjamin 1 February 1873 - age 77. All indications are that my Jane died sometime between 1831 and 1841 and Benjamin married a lady by the name of Sarah - but not an Ackerman - however such a marriage cannot be found. Can a resolution to this be sourced?
