They are not listed yet on either FREEBMD or YORKSBMD so the only resource
is to look them up in the GRO Registers either in a local library, LDS
Family History Centre, or online at http://www.1837online.com (pay per
view). When you find her birth listed (you need place, year, quarter, page
and volume number) you can order her Birth Certificate which will name her
mother (including her maiden name) and hopefully her Father. You can repeat
the process with her marriage certificate. Darton came under the Barnsley
Registration District from 1850 (previously Ecclesfield) and copies of the
registers are held by Barnsley & Wakefield Registry Offices.
Once you have her parents names you can look for their marriage and perhaps
their location in 1891 census.
From 1911 the mothers maiden name is listed along side any child's birth
entry in the GRO Register, so it may be possible to continue searching after
1912 and find any births for Jane & Christopher.
Good luck with your search, a useful guide to starting is found at
http://www.familysearch.org/ in the column Headed "Search for Ancestors"
the first item below the picture is "Learn how to start your family history"
click on it and print those sheets you feel will be useful , but bookmark
(Add to your favourites) the website, you will be visiting it often!
