Mary Jane Collins (1823-1857) - daughter of William Collins (? - ?)
She was born in 1823 in Derby according to the 1851 Census.10
Mary Jane "Jane" Collins and Joseph Wardropper were married around 1841.8 This is an estimate based on the birth of their son Robert in 1841 (see below) which states that the father was Joseph Wardropper. We have not been able to find the registration of marriage.
Joseph Wardropper appears to have died in about about 1845, since in 1846 she is a widow and remarries. However, we have not been able to find any reference to his death. We have not been able to find him in the 1841 Census. He thus remains a mystery, no record of marriage or death and not in the 1841 Census.
Mary Jane (Jane) Collins and Joseph Wardropper had the following children:
After Joseph Wardropper's death, Mary Jane "Jane" Collins and William Paine Patterson were married on 22 February 1846 in Bristol, Gloucestershire.200 Civil Registration of Marriage Certificate states:
Patterson, Full age, Bachelor, Engine Driver, of St Philips Bristol, and Mary
Jane Wardropper, Full age, Widow, of St Philips were married on the 22nd
February 1846 at the Parish Church of St Philip and Jacob in Bristol.
Mary Jane (Jane) Collins and William Paine Patterson had two children before she died in 1857.
