I have Mansell's on my husbands' family tree.
William Henry Mansell was married to Ann Manwaring 14 May 1851 in Bloxwich, Stafford, England.
I would be curious to find out if they are relatives of your Mary Jane Mansell. I believe she would probably be a generation older, maybe my William's aunt?
Wouldn't that be great?
I know that my William and Ann had at least 2 children--a William (born 1856 in Wellington, Shropshire, England) and an Ann (her maiden name was spelled Munsell) (born 1857 in Saint George, Birmington/Warwick, England).
We haven't gotten 'back' any further, as we kind of hit a wall. If there's any chance that Mary Jane is a relative, would you please let me know, so that I might know where to go to get back a little further?
Thanks, in advance, for your reply,
