I am in search of any information on the wife of Godfrey Jepson, b Handsworth, Yorkshire England 1796. In August of 1815, after recently migrating to Birmingham, Warwickshire, he married one Ann Tzon. This surname makes no sense, yet her last son's marriage record in 1861 Chicopee Ma again states his mother's name was Ann Tzon!!! Does anyone have any info or know of any English custom of abbreviating a surname for some reason? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you, Bob Sears
