to the Aldous Families in the north of England and beyond
Sarah Jane Aldous (1880 - )
Sarah Jane ALDOUS was the fourth child of
Mary Aldous and a bit of an enigma. None of the Yorkshire members of the
Aldous family were aware there was a girl within this generation of the family;
Fred said he had never heard of her.
Sarah Jane was born in Glossop Derbyshire in 1880 and was
living with her family at 50 Post Street, Glossop Dale, Derbyshire on the1881
census, and still with them at Deepcar at the time of the 1901 census, where she
was described as a mothers help, but it did not say whether she was in
employment or just her own mothers help.
Around three months after the census on 15th
July 1901 Sarah Jane married James Hardacre SIDEBOTTOM at St Mary’s
Church of England church, Bolsterstone. James Hardacre was the brother of Machel
Serenna who was later to marry Thomas Aldous. Serenna and Thomas signed the
register as witnesses. James Hardacre was born in 1879 at Stainboro Barnsley
before the Sidebottoms moved to Stocksbridge.
No information has so far come to light as to what
happened to Sarah Jane and James Hardacre after they were married. Did they move
away? Did they have any family? Only time will tell.
