If they do turn out to be your family then you will probably be interested in the following group of people. Same address but John Jenks is listed first. I wondered if Henry Westwood was brother to Elizabeth Westwood that married Jonah Phelps.Also possible that Sarah Jenks' maiden name was Westwood too.
