   Research Notes:

In 1841, Jean was with her mother.

In 1861, Jean (27) and Richard (34) were at Vennel Street Dalry, with Mary (4).

In 1871, Jane (37) and Richard (40) were at Stanley Street Harrington Whitehaven Cumberland, with Mary (14).

In 1881, Jane (44) and Richard (48) were at Main Street Parton Whitehaven Cumberland, with Mary (23) and boarder James Wardrop (20).

In 1891, Jane (w) (57) was at 1 Court Whitehaven Cumberland, with Mary (34) and grand daughter Maggie G (5) Whitehaven.

In 1901, Jane (w) (66) was at 21c Senhouse Street Whitehaven Cumberland, with Mary (42) and Margaret G (15) apprentice dressmaker.

There is no absolute proof that Richard Cunningham married this Jean Gibson, but this Jane was the only one of 3 marriageable Janes and Jeans in Stewarton in 1851 who was born there, and the 1861 census gives Stewarton as Jean Cunningham's birthplace. The presence of James Wardrop in their household in 1881 almost proves the connection. 2

   Marriage Information:

Jane married Richard CUNNINGHAM, son of Robert CUNNINGHAM and Elizabeth, on 24 Sep 1853 in Stewarton, Ayrshire, Scotland. (Richard CUNNINGHAM was born about 1826 in Ireland and died in 1864 in Whitehaven District, Cumberland, England.)
