INTRODUCTION

Many of the areas that seem to recur throughout many of the earlier Jennings family records from Shrewsbury and Cheshire are physically connected by a railway line. Shrewsbury - Wem - Whitchurch - Wembury (for Audlem and Didcott-cum-Wilkesley),-  Nantwich and prior to the family diaspora in 1912 this seems to have played a major role in work and housing locations as many of the older records are situated along this very rural track traversing a vast expanse of farming country spotted with grand houses and many older recorded professions are farming or service related. There is also a water transport connection as all locations are either on the river Severn or the Shropshire Union Canal which connects to the Severn.
