all born Yorks, Kirk Burton parish

Note, as in 1841 George has no wife but is given as married, However on 30 Nov 1851 he married at Kirk Burton and is given as a widower:-
George Morton, 41, wid, engineer, New Fold Holmfirth, father James Morton clothier
Harriet Eastwood, 41, wid, , Underbank, father Joseph Holmes school master

Also note there is another child Wright Morton living nearby, s.o. John & Ellen. He was born 31 Dec 1849, bap 1852. He can be followed though censuses etc but I can't find any other reference to "your" Wright Morton who is not with George & Harriet in 1861.

Thank you very much Elaine.

I'm going to have to copy some bits and highlight them to see if I'm following this correctly.

There shoud be two birth reg for a Wright MORTON but I can only find one ...

Births Mar Qtr 1850
Morton Wright Huddersfield 22 311

... which does not agree with 1 week ? in 1851.

So that reg would be this other one - registered early the following year.

Wright Merton
Birth Date: 31 Dec 1849
Parish: Holmfirth, Holy Trinity
Baptism Date: 5 Sep 1852
Father: John Merton
Mother: Ellen Merton
[Image looks more like Morton than Merton. Occ. Weaver]

re your post #12, the 1851 census is the only reference I can find for Wright Morton aged 1 week.
The birth registered Q1 1850 and the baptism in 1852 are the other Wright Morton.
Possible "your" Wright died shortly after the census, before his birth could be registered. Or maybe he was Ann's son (which I think most likely) and he took the name Stansfield when she married 2 months later though he wasn't registered or baptised as that either. A mystery !
