Mary Jane Dixon
Looking for information on the above who was born 18 July 1844, the daughter of John and Martha DIXON (nee DONNOWAY or DONOVEN) of Whitby. Mary Jane had two illegitimate children: John, born at Whitby c1864, and Ann Elizabeth (Annie) DIXON, born at Whitby on 10th April 1871. I've not yet checked the parish baptism register to see if the father is named there, and there are no court-imposed bastardy orders in respect of Annie which would name the purported father. Mary Jane married George BROWN, a fisherman, at Whitby in the 29th September 1872, ie 15-18 months after Annie's birth, and is shown as a spinster on the marriage certificate. According to the 1881 census, George and Mary Jane had two children of the marriage - Hannah, born in Hartlepool c1873, and Eliza, born in North Ormesby c1875. In 1881 the family was living in Whitby again and Annie was using the BROWN surname. Nevertheless, by the time she was herself married in 1893 she had reverted to using the DIXON surname. Mary Jane died at Whitby in the October 1900 quarter and in the 1901 census her son John is recorded as a jet worker and living alone in a yard off Church Street. I believe that her daughter Hannah BROWN married a John HILL in 1892 who was involved in the jet trade and that they had three children - Annie (1894), George (1897) and Samuel (1900).

Looking for information on, or descendants of, John DIXON, fisherman or mariner, and Martha nee DONNOWAY or DONOVEN who probably married at Whitby on 23 November 1827.

Mary Jane married George BROWN, fisherman, in 1872. Patrick appears to have died unmarried but had been engaged in the jet-working industry.
