I really hope you are still out there as it doesn't look like you have posted a message since 2001.
Anyway, here goes . . .
I have just found out that my GR Gr Grandmothers surnmae is 'KINSLOW' (rather than Kingslow, as previously thought). I have had similar problems tracing her back in time.
Her name was MARY ANN KINSLOW and for every english census her birth place was only recorded as Ireland until 1901 when it finally said 'Limerick'.
Perhaps that might be a good place to look, as my Mary also turns up in Southampton, Hampshire England, where she married my Gr Gr Grandfather William Parrington in 1855.
I have Marys' birth year estimated at c.1833 and on her marriage cert, it says her fathers name was Denis Kinslow. Denis's occupation is recorded as 'Seargent in Army'
I wonder if there is a connection???
Hope to hear from you soon,
