CENSUS: I have been very lucky to find a census for every year one was published from 1851 to 1911.........  I believe Jane lived a little over 20 years longer but England has only released their census through 1911 so far.

1851 ISAAC LITTLE 45 (abt 1806) HEAD; spouses name: Jane; gender: male; where born; Castle Sowerby, Cumberland, England; civil parish: Bassenthwaite; county/island: Cumberland; country: England; registration district: cockermouth; sub-registration district: Keswick; ED: 4a; household schedule #: 30; Others in resident:
  Jane  wife 38  Cumberland, Greystone
  Isaac son  10  Cumberland, Castle Sowerby  scholar
  Hudson son 7  Cumberland, Bassenthwaite   scholar
  Jane Eliza  dau 5  Cumberland, Bassenthwaite

1861 UK Census......... Jane is found in the Mounsey family home as a servant.  She is only 15 at the time and is a servant. I cannot imagine my sons out working on their own at age 15 but in those days this seems to be common place.  I do have other ancestors with the family surname of MOUNSEY so I will be checking to see if these families cross......... 

I do have a Robert Mounsey same age as Jane. Robert is married to a Mary Wilson (is she related to John G Wilson?). Son of Mr Mounsey and Eliza ?. He is originally from England and ended up in New York, Cortland County....... So maybe it is not such a small world after all. 

1871 UK Census finds Jane E Little married to John Greenup Wilson and starting a family........ she also has a servant in the home who is the same age as she is.


1881 UK Census shows Jane Eliza Wilson with family in the same place....... with a growing family. Looks like the homestead is called "Stone Ends Home"  and it is a farm of some sort. Looks like all the children so far were born at home. 5 children listed. Now that is a hard life.......  you are definitely on your own. 


1891 UK Census ..... again finds Jane Eliza Wilson with husband and family in the same place...... there are 2 more children for a total of 7. 

1901 UK Census ......  again I found Jane Eliza Wilson with husband and a fraction of the children....  Only three children remain in the home and all are adults- they are all listed as farm workers ...... it seems that Gertrude should still be listed but she's not listed- she would be 14 in 1901. Did she die? Or did she go to work somewhere else?  Another mystery. 

.....and the last UK census available from UK 1911.....  Jane Eliza Wilson with husband and one son and another young male.....a Robert Strony - I believe this is Robert Strong. I do have another Strong in the family tree but not Robert. I have a John Strong that married Jane's first sister Mary. Maybe related or not!!  Edwin was out of the house in the 1901 census but is back in the 1911 census. 

I can hardly wait till the 1921 UK census is released - so that would be 2021(only 6 years to wait)
