Having to start again :-(

Hello everyone,
Well I thought I was doing well till I got some info that didn't look right,and then I checked what I had and thats when everything came to pieces :'(

I chased the wrong tree and didn't double check. So I'm going to my safe point that I know is correct and wondering if anyone can help me restart the hunt in the right direction this time.

I'm looking for the line back from my 2x Great grandfather. He is John H Sykes B 1850 his parents were Joesph (38 ) and Betty (37) Sykes from Wooldale nr Holmfirth, West Yorkshire. That is the info on the 1851 census.

Like I say I followed the wrong parents back and got alot of info on them, only to find that I'd done a basic error-not checked place of birth :mad) And I just cant seem to see straight and hope a fresh pair of eyes and start me off again.

Any help is appreciated
