OH JANE! – an ancestor who was a little too free with her favours

Jane Creamer lived in Huntingdonshire in the middle of the 19th century in an agricultural community.  Her son Henry gave his father’s name as William Ward when he married.  On researching I discovered his mother’s story of many lovers, 6 illegitimate children before she married and then it got worse!  Hang on to your hat with this tale of bastardy, wife-beating, and suicide.
