Dicken/inson, Cook, Thompson from Lancashire

Hi, my name is Pat Smith, nee Cook, born Burnley, Lancs.

I have come up against a brick wall with my great Grandmother, Ellen Thompson, nee Dicken/inson. Story has it she was born in Scotland on 25th Dec 1840/41, she had a brother Robert and a sister, Rachel, their father was Francis but can find no concrete evidence of who their mother was and no mention of their births, either in Scotland or England. I have Ellen's marriage certificate, she wed GGF at Vale Chapel Todmorden, on the 9th of May, 1874, with her father's name on the certificate, with the profession of Hatter. That's all I have.

Would anyone have any idea how to go further, or know of Ellen (wishful thinking).
