Jane Gibson

We know next to nothing about Jane Gibson, except what we can gather from church records. She wasn’t afraid to name her daughter Betsey’s father as Jos Ferguson, though he seems to have played no further part in her life.

From Betsey’s marriage record in 1828 we can see that Jane seems to have stayed in Dearham and brought up her daughter as a single parent, keeping the surname Gibson.

No further details of Jos Ferguson, her daughter Betsey’s father
