Mary Jane COMPSTON b. Jun Q 1852 Preston m. Rev George KERRY at Serampore India 1895

2012-03-31 I was pleased to hear from Marc Kerry   about his relative Mary Jane Compston who is a member of the Lancashire family tree 1

 

Message:

Mary married the Rev George Kerry at Serampore, India in 1895. 

Do you have more information about their time in India?  Mary was working with a Indian women's Baptist group since she gave a report about this in New York at a Baptist World Congress.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I sent Marc the following information about her family:

 

Compston Mary Jane b Jun Q 1853 Preston 8e 450

 

This made her 43 at marriage – quite elderly.  She was the daughter of John Milton COMPSTON and Catherine Dean recorded in my archive as Lancs 1 and I have a number of entries (30) in their tree including:

 

Census 1871 Leeds RG10/4556 5 Becket Street Leeds
