Hello cp,

Thank you very much.

If in 1871 Mary Ann is born Huddersfield then that's all I need thanks.

I've ruled this one out as well. It's looking more and more as though my Mary Ann is one of these:

Hello cp,

Thanks. That's it then. Even though I don't have an extracted record for my Mary Ann born abt 1833 I would say she was born in Halifax like her 7 siblings and not in Huddersfield or Golcar or Slaithwaite.
