Son Charles b1844's birth certificate gives his mother as:
Frances Mellor formerly 'Geary' late 'Jude'.
Coupled with these marriages:
Frances Geary & William Atherstick 27 Jun 1826 St.Mary's, Hinckley, Leics.
John Mellor & Frances Jude or Atherstick 20 May 1834 at Higham, Leics.
Suggests that Frances's first husband used an alias.
There are some Athersticks in nearby Bulkington, Warks who commonly used Jude as a forename.
This couple might be the parents of:
Ann Atherstick bap:29 Jul 1831 St.Mary's, Hinckley f:William Atherstick m:Frances
but 'Sarah Jude' as in the '41 census does not appear in any of the available bap records, the closest I can find is:
Sarah Gudd bap:18 Jun 1829 St Mary's, Hinckley, Leicester f: William Gudd, m:Frances
In 1847, a Sarah Jude marries James Currin, the younger brother of Mary Currin (who'd married John Meller's son Samuel b1814 in 1833).
