It does seem that Alice is a bit young to be the mother of Jane and the older of her sisters, so it is possible - especially if William was born in 1821 - that William had a prior wife.

Frederick W. BLUNDELL, b. 7/8/1857 in Preston, m.

Elizabeth CHADWICK, b. 7/1/1857 in Preston, emigrated

to the US in 1881 or 1882 with an infant son Frederick

W. BLUNDELL, Jr. I believe they were living at 20

Hilton Street in Preston prior to moving to the US.

The date you give 1881/2 suggested looking in the 1881 Census Transcript and this is
