Hi All
I have found the name of my 5th Great grandmother and her date of birth on the 1851 cencus, her name is Elizabeth Fletcher born in leeds 1782 she is aged 69 and is living with her son Tobias Fletcher 1814 to 1877 in Barnsley,
Seeing as the cencus only starts proper from 1841 is this as far back that i can get or is there records held somewhere else that will help me fill in the blanks without having to visit her birth place

Hi Richard....cannot help with dates etc but were you aware that Tobias was a renown watchmaker in Barnsley?....my advice is to contact the local paper(above) and tell them what you want to know...they are proud of the heritage in Barnsley.
I am sure it is your Tobias and a snippett in the paper could well help you...all you have to do is leave an email....someone in a Town that size will probably have plenty of info on your Fletchers.
Hopefully some of the other forum members can give you some leads.

Good luck and best wishes.. Lee
