Young, Jane (b 1831 – d 1914) (nee Hackworth) 1914

Young, Jane (b 1831 – d 1914) (nee Hackworth) was born at 4 pm 19/06/1831 at Soho House, Shildon. She was the daughter of Timothy (b 1786 - d 1850), Railway Engineer and Hackworth, Jane (b 1785 -d 1852) (nee Golightly). She went to school at her sister Prudence Nightingale (nee Hackworth)’s Seminary for Young Ladies, Penrith and then was sent to finish her education in Vilvorde, Brussels. She married Young, George Edward (b 1823 -1889) Wesleyan Preacher 28/12/1853. The couple moved around regularly due to George Edward’s job; correspondence shows that they lived in Leeds, London and that Jane lived in Hull.

They had five sons and one daughter, sons including the following that feature in the archive Young, Timothy Hackworth (b 1855 – d?).

Both Jane and George Edward Young were active in campaigning for recognition of Timothy Hackworth. George Edward Young’s research papers and correspondence demonstrate his involvement and Jane Young (nee Hackworth) appears to have been involved in research about her father for most of her life.
