Note on Wife: Jane JENKINS

St Just in Roseland saw three girls baptised with the name Jane Jenking in three consecutive years: 1780, 1781 and 1782. The Jane who married Jonas gave her age through the censuses very consistently - according to those she was born in either 1782 or 1783. In addition to that, the first two Jane's come from families in which the names of Joseph in one, and Ursula in the other, feature strongly. Neither of these names feature in Jonas and Jane's family. The balance of probability therefore suggests that the Jane baptised in 1782 is the one who married Jonas.

Note on Child 1: Jonas JENKING

During the Crimean War he was one of the 2600 coastguards who served in the Navy. He was on HMS Stromboli, qualifying for both the Baltic and Crimea Medals. At 47 he must have been one of the oldest men on the ship!
