She was listed as living with her parents in the family home at the time of the 1861 and 1871 Census forms, and moved out of St George in the East following her marriage in the London City registration district to William George Jerwood [1] in October-December 1875.


No 1881 Census Record for Rachel & William has yet been located, but in 1891 the couple were in residence at 10 Higham Road, East Ham, together with their children: William (13), Belle Eliza (9), Hannah (Maud (5), Alfred John (3) and Thomas (1). The couple had a sixth child, John Jerwood, in 1892. Two years later, in July-September 1894, Rachel died.

A year after her death, widower William George Jerwood [1] married Rachelís younger sister, Elizabeth Lockwood [2], with whom he had three more children - James Jerwood (c1898), George Thomas Jerwood (c1900) and Saran Ann Jerwood [c1901].
