    Help with a death please :)

    Hi all, I am trying to find a death for Jane Nicholls baptised 1771 in Benson, Oxfordshire. She married James Bonner (unable to pinpoint his death at the mpment as there are 3 James Bonner who die in Benson over the space of about 15 years)! I have her on the 1851 census (age 81) but not on the 1861.
    I can see the following death on Ancestry https://www.ancestry.co.uk/search/ca...5280&name_x=_p

    in Thame but I'm not sure why she would be there but as I can't find another death I am only guessing this is her?
    What do you think?
    Thanks for reading

    HOWEVER ............

    is this your Jane Bonner in 1861??? I have only seen the one Jane, born in Benson, Oxfordshire

    https://search.ancestry.co.uk/cgi-bi...off=&ml_rpos=1

    Her age is shown as 95, and that is accurate on the image ....... but we all know it may have been a guess!!!


    and could this be that Jane's death????

    The GRO Index is a good way to check deaths as it shows the age ................

    the only problem is for children under the age of 10 or 12.

    Their current system cannot distinguish between hours, days, weeks or months from years, so a child shown as dying age 6 could be 6 hours, 6 days, 6 weeks, 6 months or 6 years.
