Thanks Geoff.

How then is Wright a son of George? Or is George an error?

Parents of Ann?

Death for Ellen?

Dunno, Dave.. just thought that John could be a brother of George?

Geoff

EDIT: Not sure why he is quoted as son in 1851, unless as you say it was an error.

Thanks Geoff.

1851 30 March

Born 31 Dec 1849 so makes no sense. 66 weeks it's not.

No other birth reg for a Wright Morton to explain 10-19 weeks on 31 Mar 1851. Looks like 12 to me.

John & Ellen in 1851 ??

If John's father is Benjamin then John is not George's brother (father = James).

If it is 1 week then could be registered in June Qtr and if 10-19 weeks then Mar Qtr but no surname fits.

I have Mellor, Crosland and Haigh in my tree all in WRY but all connected to Hirst/Kilner not Barraclough/Morton.
