I keep thinking of Jane Mounsey and thinking what a strong brave woman she would have been. She had at least 10 children that we know about. Just think about that for the women in the audience who have had children already...... she has given birth to 10 children over a 22 years of her life - probably did it all natural and where ever she was at the time and then turned around and cleaned house, prepared dinner, took care of all the other children. No rest No time off. ......... YUK!!! that was a very hard life. And to the men in this audience ..... how would you support all these children over those 22 plus years? It looks to me after researching all these children that most were leaving the home at very early ages.
Mounsey was already out of the house on his own by age 19, who knows how much earlier he was working. He has stayed in the same area as his parents and siblings. Mounsey's father was a School Master and his mother was a School Mistress but he turned to work with a family living on a farm. And there is a nurse too. Probably neighbors of the LITTLES. There are 5 others that live with this family and are also farm servants. Unfortunately, the GANSON family is not familar to me.
1881 census next or is it?
