"In Ever Loving Memory of my dear wife Jane Hughes who left me for a little while on Febry 18th 1903 aged 66."

Jane Hughes was born Jane Green in 1837 in Dorchester, Oxfordshire, England. In 1859 Jane married Samuel John Hughes in Stepney, London.

The first record found on Jane and Samuel is the 1871 Census where Samuel is the Master and Jane is the Matron of the West Ham Union Workhouse. Samuel and Jane are still Master and Marton of the Union Workhouse in 1881, living with them are their daughter Caroline born in 1863, and their son Frank born in 1873. In 1891 their daughter Kate, a High School Mistress born in 1864 has joined her parents in living at the Workhouse.

By the 1901 Census both Samuel and Jane have retired to College Avenue in Maidenhead, Berkshire. Jane was to pass away on 18th February 1903. After that Samuel seems to disappear from the records.
