E24. JANE BAGGS born GALE

Jane Gale was born in Hampshire in November 1788, and was baptised at Bentley, Hampshire, on 28 December 1788, at the age of seven weeks.1

She was probably employed as a domestic servant at Hannington Rectory when she met [E4] John Baggs; she married him on the 25th July 1805, at Bentley. Their first child, John, was baptised in Bentley in 1806 (d. 1882); all subsequent children—[E3] Henry (1808–1872), Charles (1810–1875), Catherine (1813–1888), Emily (1815–1886), James (1818–1898), Sarah (1820 – ?), Eli (1822–1909), Ann (1825 – after 1844), Edmund (1827–1902), and Elizabeth (1831–1862)—were baptised in Hannington.2

In 1841 she was working as an agricultural labourer, living with her family in what is now known as Yew Tree Cottage, in Hannington Village in Kingsclere. In 1851, a house servant, she was being employed as a nurse at Andrew Twitchin's farmhouse in North Oakley, where Mary Twitchin had just given birth (the unnamed infant is described as 8 hours old).3

Of Hannington, Jane Baggs died there the 8th May 1858, after five weeks cystitis and seven days typhoid fever. She was buried in Hannington churchyard on the 12th May.4

Jane Gale was the third child, and third daughter, of (E25) John and (E26) Mary Gale.5
