  • Name Jane Evelyn Gould

    • Jane Evelyn Duffy was living with her mother, Ann Duffy, in the 1881 English census.
      They were living with Ann's mother in Ashton-under-Lyne. Question arises as to why she did not use her married name, if she was married? A search of existing church and civil records revealed no marriage registration. Also no records for the birth of Jane Evelyn was found. Rare documents for Duffy or Gould were found. It is possible they were non-conformists. A suggestion that James Gould was Jewish has some merit but he had a christian given name, must be investigated. Manchester area was a home to many Jewish people and the good records were searched for a James or Robert Gould with negative results. In 1880 the Jews were required to adopt a surname and research before that time requires more knowledge than I presently have.

    Emigration (fam) 1880  Austin, Travis County, Texas Find all individuals with events at this location  [11
    • The 1900 United States census indicates that Hannah immigrated with James in 1880. This does not appear to be the case unless she returned to England and reentered a second time. The family folklore indicates that Hannah's daughter Jane Evelyn was unable to immigrate at the same time as her parents because she had the measles. (The is information from Alva Mae, Hannah's daughter.) If Hannah returned to England to bring her daughter Jane Evelyn there would be three trips across the Atlantic Ocean and a possibility of finding her in a passenger list. Jane's immigration date is 1883. Hannah was in the 1881 British census in Ashton- Under-Lyne living with her mother Ann Duffy, just next door to her grandfather John Duffy a widow working as a weaver of silk.
      In the 1900 census, James Gould born was April 1834 in England, age 66 married 21 years, immigrated 1881, naturalized, farmer, rents farm; wife Hannah age 39, born October 1860, married 21 years, has had 8 children and 5 are living, born in England.
