Jane BALL was one of my great great grandmothers. She was born on 6 October 1831 in Charleton, Devon, and christened in the same place on 23 October 1831. Her first child, Emma Jane, was born in 1850 when Jane was just 19.
On 24 June 1857 - again, in Charleton - Jane married Henry DAMERELL; the witness were Jane Clements and Mary (surname illegible). Her best friends? Henry is recorded as a sailor.
Jane went on to bear seven children, and died on 30 August 1880 - I wouldn't be surprised if this event also occurred in Charleton!
