Elizabeth Jane Burgar was born in 1846 in Chelsea, London.16 Civil Registration of Births reference is Jun 1846 V 3 p 69 - Chelsea, London16

She died in 1872 at Lambeth London.16 Civil Registration of Death reference is Jun 1872, V 1d, p198. Aged 25. - Lambeth London.16

We are not sure about all the facts concerning Elizabeth Jane, since we have not seen the Marriage and Death certificates concerning her or her family.

However, there is much circumstantial evidence that suggests that the details below are substantially correct.

She was with her parents in the 1851 and 1861 Census returns.  

See Census Returns   

She married James Henry Aylott in 1867. Civil Registration of marriage reference is Sep 1867 V 1A p 395 - Chelsea, London.16 

We have not found this family in the 1871 census. Unfortunately, Elizabeth Jane died in 1872 at the age of 25 years.  Her two children  do not seem to have had their births registered.

Elizabeth Jane's son (James Horace Aylott b1868) appears living with his Uncle, Robert Edmond Burgar, in the 1881 Census and later marries his cousin, Mary Ann Westbrook. She was the daughter of Janetta (Burgar) Westbrook, the elder sister of Elizabeth Jane. It would thus seem that the Burgar side of the family looked after James Horace Aylott during his childhood.

Elizabeth Jane Burgar and James Henry Aylott had the following children:



James Horace Aylott.



Elizabeth Jane Aylott was born in 1869.3

She died in 1870 at Wandsworth London.16 Civil Registration of Death reference is Dec 1870, vol 1d, p354. Aged 1. - Wandsworth London.16  We are not sure that this child belongs to Elizabeth and James Aylott.

James Henry Aylott (the husband of Elizabeth Jane Burgar) was born in 1848 in Paddington, London.14

After the death of his first wife, Elizabeth Jane Burgar in 1872, James married Ellen Bickerton in 1876 in Lichfield Staffordshire.  Civil Registration of marriage reference is Sep 1876, V6b, p537 - Lichfield, Staffordshire.16

In the 1891 Census, he was living at 19, Edenham St, Kensington London..14
In the 1901 Census, he was living at 8, The Barracks, Laverstock and Ford, Wiltshire.15  

Between 1891 and 1901 he was a Bricklayer.14  According to the places of birth of their children, the family often moved about the country. He was a bricklayer and maybe he followed the railways, which employed large numbers of such workers, constructing bridges and viaducts etc. The 1901 Census suggests that he might have been employed by the Army.
