Tinney-283 and Tinny-1 appear to represent the same person because: When trying to marry off Anne Jacka as part of the Jacka One Name study I came across two Richard Tinny/Tinney's who I believe are the same. It was probably not picked up before now due to the variation in the surname. I believe the other Jacka's in the 1841 Census in the same household are also related to Anne
