2011-07-25 I was pleased to hear from Niki Kingston-Lee about her connection with the CUMPSTON family through Hannah Wones Cumpston

Message:
I'm Niki, Roger Wones's daughter. I'm also interested in our family tree and have been trying to delve a little deeper on one member in particular
Amelia Wones/Jones. (see mis-spelling in the 1891 census GM - it would have been very easy to have misheard the word WONES and written JONES)

She only appears once in the 1881 census as a Wones, (see GM's entry below) the rest she seems to be a Jones.

She lives with Hannah and William Cumpston on the 1901 census, listed as an Aunt. Do you know anything about her? (see GM's census entry below). She is also listed as an Aunt when she lives with Edward Wones, Hannah's brother.

She is listed as an in-law on the 1871 census living with the Mary Ann Fullwood mother to Mary Elizabeth Fullwood who married Joseph Wones, last son of John and Nancy. All quite interwoven. Any help appreciated. Niki.
