I have found one staying as a visitor with roughly the same age and roughly the same area but this is the closest. Now due to not knowing if I can post the info on thread like you have done(I have been told 2 different things by 2 different mods ) I am going to message you with the info

Hi Dave
I wonder if this is your Elizabeth. Right age and I think Culcheth is just in Warrington District
Ball Elizabeth 71 Warrington Sept qtr 1886 ref 8c 86

Google - 'Culcheth, Cheshire, is a large village approximately 6 miles (10 km) north-east of Warrington, England.'

Hello sparklingtechie,

Thanks. Probably unlikely given stated place of birth and location. If it had stated "miner's widow" I would look very closely. :)

I would say there is no problem posting census details for all except 1911 and if there is still doubt about this then add:

Hello Dave,

Thanks for looking. Interesting how the census has Culcheth in Lancashire.

You might be right about that death.

I have some children I need to trace too.

Regards,

Dave

I tried that and my post got edited I was told I could not post census info and no it wasn't the 1911 one either. Sorry I didn't do a good job helping with the name.

Hello sparklingtechie,

NP, I was thinking more along the line she was still alive and therefore could be found.

Curious. I will inquire.

Regards,

Dave

Hello Dave,

1871 U.K census
Civil Parish: Golborne
County: Lancashire
Registration District: Leigh
BALL Simeon, head 1820 age 51 Coal Miner Golborne, Lancashire
BALL Betty, wife 1817 age 54 Coal Miner's Wife Culcheth, Lancashire
The first thing to check is that there are no children with them in 1871.

Thanks.

Dave

Hello Dave,

1881
Dwelling 40 Parrot St
Census Place Great Bolton, Lancashire, England
Public Records Office Reference RG11
Piece / Folio 3841 / 146 Page Number 19

Amelia GREGORY Wife M Female 38 Golborne, Lancashire, England

Please see if you can find them at the same address in 1871. Also with them should be Amelia's sister Ann BALL b. abt 1855 Golbourne.
(Curiously Ann is not with her parents in 1861 census)
Ann & Amelia are two of 11 children so I'll be going through them in turn.

Thanks.

Hello crankypants,

Thank you very much.

Ann is a curious one. If she is a sister then why was she not with her parents and siblings in 1861? And what happened to her after
1871? Well, I've been told she is a sister however because it says lodger it could just be coincidence her name is BALL.

Regards,

Dave

Hello crankypants,

Please see if you can follow Amelia through to 1911. Thanks.


I have no marriage and no death for Ann so for now I'll remove her from the list of children.

Regards,

Dave

Hello crankypants,

Thank you very much.

Amelia is one of 10 (or 11) children. Some ended up in Australia, some married and stayed in England and others just vanished.

Younger sister Betsy married also:

Marriages Dec 1876
Thornley William Bolton 8c 383
BALL Betsey Bolton 8c 383

Lancs BMD Ball Betsy Thornley William Bolton St. Peter 18/26/229

William Thornley......21years.......Bachelor ....Ironturner....317 Lever Street Bolton. Son of Thomas Thornley...Ironturner

Betsy Ball.......20 Years ......Spinster.....No occupation listed.....Parrot Street Bolton. Daughter of Simeon Ball.....Collier

On the 25th December 1876.....the Parish Church...Bolton le Moors in the county of Lancaster

In the presence of ......John Thornley and Mary Ellen Fielding
All parties signed

Betsy should be living in Bolton not far from Amelia in 1871 but seems she has not been found by other researchers.

Variation: Betsy, Betsey, Betty
c. 25 Jan 1857 Lowton, Lancashire, England
Simeon BALL & Ann

Please see if you have any luck finding her in 1871. Thanks.

Regards,

Dave

Hi Dave

Not sure if there are two Simeon's or just the one.

Births Sep 1859
BALL Simeon Leigh 8c 160
BALL Simeon Burnley 8e 185


I can only find one Simeon BALL born 1860 Golborne in 1871 (image reads son) of Hiram & Alice.

*NOTE*
Ann BALL born 1855 Golborne in 1861 (image reads niece) of Hiram & Alice.

I wonder if error in 1871 for Simeon should be nephew.:rolleyes:

cheers

Hello crankypants,

Thanks for looking. Interesting. Mine is the Leigh one for sure.

I didn't know there was one born in Burnley RD.

Hiram & Alice are unknown to me.

Marriages Jun 1859
Ball Hiram Leigh 8C 193
FEARNS Alice Leigh 8c 193
Greenhalgh Alice Leigh 8c 193
Unsworth Peter Leigh 8c 193

Only one other thought. Did you also look for Simon in case of transcription error?

From what I've found so far very few left the Leigh RD area (Lowton, Leigh, Golborne).

Marriages Dec 1885
Ball Simeon Leigh 8c 265
Bennett Samuel Leigh 8c 265
Bullock Agnes Leigh 8c 265
Dunn Jane Leigh 8c 265

Regards,

Dave
