Biography

Domestic Servant, born about 1839. In about 1859, she had a daughter, Jessie Nicol, father unknown. In 1863 she had another daughter, Elizabeth with George Halkett. This was probably also out of wedlock as Elizabeth's birth certificate refers to her as "Elizabeth Halket or Esson".


She later married a William Philip and had children with him.

There are some discrepancies in the censuses, but other information aligns so I assume this is due to errors by whoever gave the information.

The 1861 census has her estimated birth year as "abt 1834", a 5 year discrepancy from future censuses. However, her birth place matches, her daughter Jessie Nicol is listed and niece Elizabeth Edward. In the 1871 census Jessie Nicol, Elizabeth Edward appear again listed as exactly 10 years older, and now her daughter Elizabeth Halkett is also listed. These consistencies remove doubt of the records matching and infer that Janet's age was wrongly reported in 1861.

Her name being listed as "Jessie Phillip" instead of Janet the 1871 census is another discrepancy. She had married William Phillip so the last name is correct. Again, the fact that her daughters and niece are listed in this household indicates that this is merely an error.
