Jennie Jarvis

Unionist Club

Jennie Jarvis, born in 1882 in Rotherham, is my second cousin, twice removed and daughter of Eliza Jane Bowler Crossland and Frank Jarvis.

In 1901, Jennie married Frank Souter Wilson. On the 1901 Census, prior to their marriage, Frank was lodging with Jennie’s grandmother, Elizabeth Crossland (nee Burton). However, on the 1911 Census, there is no trace of Frank Wilson but Jennie is a ‘House Keeper’ in the home of Edwin Barron. In 1926, Jennie and Edwin married in Rotherham.

Jennie issued children with both Frank and Edwin, who were called, Marjory Wilson, Edna Wilson, Edwin Barron and Peter Baron.

I suspect that Frank Wilson deserted Jennie which would explain why many years passed before Jennie was able to marry Edwin.

Below are a number of newspaper articles pertaining to Jennie’s death.
