1793 - 8th Jan 1868
29th May 1823
Married Theodore John Buschman
Birth of daughter Jane Majorine Buschman
8th Jan 1868
Died in Marylebone
The record of Jane's death, in January 1868, has her age a 74 - giving a probable birth date in 1793.
Jane's age in the 1851 census (53) suggests a birth in 1797/8
and her age in the 1861 census (67) suggests a birth in 1793/4
The witnesses to the marriage of Theodore John Buschman and Jane Runciman, in 1823, were:
Sophia Runciman ( Jane's sister)
Charles Runciman (Jane's brother)
Amelia Buschman. (Laurentia Buschman's sister)
In the 1841 census
Jane Buschman, 43, a Schoolmistress is listed along with her sister, Sophia Runciman, at Brunswick Terrace (clearly a school).
It seems likely that this Jane Buschman is the wife (widow?) of Theodore Buschman.
However, there is a discrepancy in respect of age. I have taken the birthdate from the Death record for Jane Buschman shown below.
In 1851, in Sussex, at 32, Brunswick Terrace:
|Jane Buschman||Head||Widow||53||Mistress of Ladies School||b. London|
|Jane M Buschman||Daughter||Unm||24||b. 'Rotterdam British Subject'|
|with 29 other women (from 9 to 40 yrs of age) in the same household.|
At first we could not find Jane in the 1861 census.
However, in the 1861 census there are, at 25 York Place, in St Marylebone, Middlesex:
|Theodora Buschman||Head||Wid||67||b. Covent Garden, Middlesex|
|Jeannie M Buschman||Daughter||Unm.||30||b. Rotterdam.|
|Isabella Carrathers||Servant||Unm.||29||House Servant||b. Croydon, Surrey|
Has Jane adopted a feminine version of her late husband's name?
It seems likely that 'Jeannie M' is probably 'Jane M' however there do seem to be age discrepancies.
Covent Garden is the area in which a number of Runcimans were born.
Theodora's age in the 1861 census fits with the burial record of Jane Buschman.
The probate shows that Jane was survived by her daughter Jane Majorine Buschman
