That looks the biz...
 
I will put HALL on the backburner.

I'm wondering if the Iron turner died in 1885 or do we have him with 2nd wife in 1891:

Got to be a possibility, We haven't been able to follow them census by census yet!

No, doesn't appear so....
 
I can't see Elizabeth b. abt 1828 Chorley in 1881.

I can't see a death that fits to 1891.

Deaths Sep Qtr 1896
Thornley Elizabeth 73 Ashton 8d 409

I can find no tree for Elizabeth Thorp.

No. I can't see James with Ellen or even with a different spouse that fits with him born Ashton as per 1891.


I can't see a burial for 1885 James.
 
If that was James' death in 1885, there are marriage possibilities for Elizabeth afterwards, though age may slowly be against her...
 
So, there's only the 1871 census that has any cred' for James and Elizabeth.:rolleyes:

Only 1861 and 1871:

1861
RG9 Piece 3121 Folio 102 Page 24
Civil Parish: Chorley
County: Lancashire
Address:
James Thornley Head 32 Iron turner Ashton Under Lyme
Elizabeth Wife 33 Chorley

No luck with any James born Ashton in 1881. This one in 1871 with diff spouse:

Name: James Thornely
Event Type: Census
Event Date: 1871
Gender: Male
Age: 49
Relationship to Head of Household: Self
Birthplace: Ashton Under Lyne, Lancashire

Registration District: Ashton Under Lyne
Sub-District: Denton
Parish: Denton

Household Gender Age Birthplace

This could be the marriage of the other James born Ashton:
