Thanks Julie,

There are several trees with the name as Helliwell but no mention of her residence prior to marriage or mention of her parents.

One tree says baptised 1825 St Peter Huddersfield but I can't see that on FS.

Is Ann's maiden name Trumble? Perhaps not:

Thomas Ibbetson Helliwell
christening: 29 June 1823 St Peter Huddersfield, Yorkshire
father: William Helliwell
mother: Ann

William Hellewell
marriage: 8 May 1817 Saint Peter,Huddersfield,York,England
spouse: Ann Ibbetson

Hi Dave,

Baptism - 18 Mar 1825 - Huddersfield, St Peter

Eliza Ann Hellawell
Born 8 Oct 1824
Parent Wm/Ann Hellawell
Williams occ is given as mason
Thanks Julie.

Can you see one for Thomas I. to see if that's the right marriage.
Hi Dave,

Looking at FS John Trumble married Eliza Aked 14 Apr 1840 Huddersfield.

Thanks Julie.

Is the Eliza in that household unmarried? If we can work out how she is related we can rule her in or out. I hope.
Thanks Julie.

Can you see a baptism at Huddersfield St Peter for the 2nd Eliza?
Hi Dave,

There are 2 baptisms both the same date but the other one same parents names but father Williams occ is given as grocer, whereas the other occupation was mason which would match Thomas's fathers occupation.
Ok, thanks Julie.

Posts #15 & #17 don't seem to agree ?

Looking for marriages for a William to Ann I can only see the one at Huddersfield St Peter. We can probably rule out Heptonstall, Halifax and Elland.

Hello Julie,

Re 1851 census:

Occupation for John - Paper Stainer

Eliza - unmarried

Address: 65 Ibbeston Place :D

So, we have one marriage but need another.
