Note: I am note sure that the correct parents have been identified for this Jesse Ashdown, but it has been left here until further information is found. His birth year in the census returns is consistently c1814 which is about 2 years before Jesse Ashdown and Mary Smith married in 1816. Also, a baptism has not been found so the link is speculative. No other baptisms have been found for Jesse and Mary Ashdown at his time either.
