Jane Wetherilt  was born in 1842.  Civil Registration of Births reference is 1842 Dec, Vol 4, p309, Lambeth, London - Lambeth London8,16,120    The Birth Certificate states:

Jane Wetherilt, the daughter of Richard Wetherilt, Baker, and Esther wetherilt, formely Mudford, was born on the sixtenth of November 1842 at 14 Gloucester Street, Lambeth. The informant was Esther Wetherilt, Mother, of 14 Gloucester Street, who signed with an 'X'. The birth was registered on the Thirteenth of December 1842 in the Sub-district of Waterloo Second Part in the District of Lambeth, Surrey.

She was baptized on 12 December 1849 in St Peters, Walworth, London.87 The Baptism Register for St Peters, Newington states:

Jane daughter of Richard and Esther Wetherilt, shoemaker of Nelson Place, was baptised on the 12/12/1849.

Jane Wetherilt died on 11 January 1919 at Gillingham, Dorset.17,120   The Civil Registration of Death reference is Mar 1919, v p Shaftesbury - Gillingham, Shaftesbury.

The death Certificate states:

Jane Trevett, aged 76 years, Widow of Alfred Trevett, a labourer, of High Street Gillingham, died on the 11th January 1919. Cause of death was 1. Old age, 2 Influenza Certified. The informant was Jane Gill, daughter, present at the death, of 1, Constance Road, East Dulwich, London. The death was registered in the Sub-district of Gillingham in the District of Shaftesbury, Dorset.

At the time of her death she was living with her daughter Mary Ann 120

It is likely that Jane died in the Spainsh Flu epidemic that occurred in 1918 to 1919.  The first wave of the epidemic occurred in February to July 1918 and was not very virulent.  The second and most virulent version of the virus was between September and December 1918.  The third and final wave was between February to April 1919, and in terms of deaths was intermediate between the first and second waves.

That Jane died in January 1919 means that it is unclear as to which wave of the epidemic caused her death.

Jane Wetherilt married John Francis Coe in 1861.  Civil Registration of marriage reference is Mar 1861, Vol 1d, p 213 - Newington London.16

She appears with him in the 1861 Census.

He died in Stockwell Fever Hospital, and the cause of death was "Variola 9 days Certified Vaccinated".   Variola is the virus that causes smallpox. 120 

The Stockwell Fever Hospital and Stockwell Smallpox Hospital  were originally built by the Metropolitan Asylums board as two separate, adjacent hospitals, under the joint name of The South Western Hospital, Landor Road, SW 9.  The Stockwell Smallpox Hospital opened on 31 January 1871 to admit patients suffering from the virulent epidemic of smallpox which was then afflicting London.  However, the Stockwell Fever Hospital was also initially used to treat smallpox patients.120

The Stockwell Smallpox Hospital, Admission and Discharge Book does not record John Francis Coe as being admitted (ref. The London Metropolitan Archves LMA H15/SW/B1/1). 120
