MILLER family from Dorset

I'm researching the MILLER family of Chideock, Dorset.
Parents were Joseph MILLER and Elizabeth WAKELY who married in 1805.
I have easily traced the male children, except for one, but the females have been elusive
I'm looking for Martha Miller b. 1814 & Jane Miller b. 1821
I found Jane Miller as servant in Melcombe Regis in 1851 UK census, but nothing after!
John Miller b. 1817 has been elusive as common name too

Cheers Gail

Re: MILLER family from Dorset

There is marriage for a Jane:

Name: Jane Miller
Marriage Age: Minor
Marriage Date: 25 Dec 1858
Marriage Place: Symondsbury, Dorset, England
Father: Joseph Miller
Spouse: Alfred James Reason

It's the spouse that's the minor not Jane.

Thanks Amanda, but the John Mitter (Miller) in the census is 10yrs older than 'my' John, so not sure they would make such an error??

Do you think Jane, as a 37 yr old, would marry someone almost 20yrs younger?? Have you found them in the 1861 census yet, Amanda??

Re: MILLER family from Dorset

Dec 25th 1858 Parish Church of Symondsbury – Alfred James Reason Minor batchelor labourer – father William Reason (Lab) to Jane Miller full age Spinster – father Joseph Miller (Lab)

9 June 1863 –Parish Church of Bothenhampton in the County of Dorset
Alfred James Reason full age a Widower – labourer – father William Reason (lab) to Elizabeth Travers Way – spinster – father George Way (Lab)

A death for a Jane Reason March qtr 1859 Reading Vol 2c page 253

Or did they split up and her death as Jane Miller - March qtr 1860 Sherborne Vol 5a page 291

Thanks Bootzy
Going by the places of marriage, I'd go with your theory that Jane died in Sherborne in 1860

Re: MILLER family from Dorset

Sorry about the repetition of the Census details - I really must start reading the posts properly!

Going on where Jane was in 1851 could this be her in 1841. Age is out but then 1841 has never been accurate.

HO107/295/15/F9/p12
Belvidere, Melcombe Regis, Weymouth
Head of Household Gore Brown
Jane Miller 25 Female Servant born Dorset.
