Marriage of George Stokes and Jane Bourne

George and Jane are shown together in the 1871 census.
In 1861 Jane Brown was living with her mother Mary Brown at 3 Court, 95 Bishopsgate Street.
George Stokes is a visitor.  Mary was a widow.
The ages for Jane and George are consistent with later censuses.
Their first child, John, was born around 1863.

No suitable entries have been found on the IGI.
There is only suitable entry in the marriage index 1862 in Kings Norton registration district.

In 1862 Kings Norton had subdistricts of Balsall Heath, Edgbaston, Harborne, Kings Norton, Moseley, Selly Oak (Smethwick).
In the 1861 census Bishopsgate Street is in municipal ward of St Thomas and ecclesiastical parish of St Thomas.
However, Bishopsgate is not much more than half a mile from Edgbaston.
  
Identity of Jane Bourne

When Jane Louisa Phillips was born her mother is given as Jane Stokes, formerly Bourne.
Jane, George and Jane Louisa are together in Bishopsgate Street in 1871 and 1881.
Thus Jane's later identity is fairly certain.

Her birthplace is consistently given as Birmingham in the censuses.
She and George are apparently with her mother in the 1861 census before they were married, but both Jane and Mary are surnamed Brown.
Jane is likewise with her mother, Mary Bourne in 1851, also in Bishopsgate Street.
The family are together with John Bourne at 97 Bishopsgate Street in 1841.
Jane's birth certificate gives her parents as John Bourne and her mother as Mary Bourne, formerly Vaughan.
Thus the identity of Jane seems fairly certain.
