The first ancestor of the JANES line is MARGARET JANES. She married JOHN WILLIAM CLARKE, who died after they had two children, ETHEL and ARCHIBALD. MARGARET then remarried WILLIAM CHARLES PARSONS. Their children can be found of the Parsons page.
MARGARET'S parents were AMBROSE JANES and MARY JANE CLARKE. Their children were:
1) MARGARET: Married JOHN WILLIAM CLARKE and later remarried WILLIAM CHARLES PARSONS
There may be more children, but I have no record of them at present.
The next two ancestors of the Janes line are ELIZABETH JANES and her brother, AMBROSE JANES. ELIZABETH married MOSES GOSSE and their children can be found of the Gosse page. AMBROSE married MARY JANE CLARKE and when she died, later remarried AMELIA MERCER. Both of these siblings are in my husband's direct line. ELIZABETH'S son, Bertram Gosse, married AMBROSE'S granddaughter, Lillian Parsons. They were first cousins once removed.
The parents of ELIZABETH and AMBROSE were WILLIAM JANES and ANNIE ?. William and Annie's children were:
1) ELIZABETH: Married MOSES GOSSE (see above).
2) AMBROSE: born September 1860. Married MARY JANE CLARKE and on April 22, 1923, was remarried to AMELIA MERCER.
I am still searching for other siblings.
