Mary Elizabeth is just Elizabeth aged 8 in 1841 census, although baptised in 1834.

1854 No 181 - Mar 6, 1854 in Parish Church Rothwell - County of York
John Barraclough 21 Bachelor Mason Almondbury Jacob Barraclough Weaver
Mary Elizabeth Askham 20 Spinster ------- Rothwell Ricd. Askham Gardener
Witnesses: Thomas Crossland & William Gibson

I'd like a look up please for Mary E/Elizabeth in 1851.

Hi Dave

Not easy to find Mary/Elizabeth in 1851, there is this on FMP, but I can't find it anywhere else :rolleyes:

ASKHAM, Mary 1834 17 F Hunslet Yorkshire (West riding)

There is also an Isaac with a sister, Mary aged 16 in 1851, if it's the same one then it can be discounted...

Thanks Geoff.

Not sure Hunslet fits.

Baptism for Mary E and Frederick at Rothwell. No baptism for Eliza Ann born in between but 1851 census has Lockwood which seems odd. Parents went from Rothwell to Lockwood and back to Rothwell for Frederick and back to Lockwood where they both died. ???

Spouse John Barraclough was with family in 1851 in Newsome Cross, Almondbury. So marriage in Holy Trinity Rothwell - bride's parish.

Mary E in 1834 but probable marriage in 1830. They probably had more than the three children.

I wonder if any more details are available somewhere:

Groom: John Richardson Askham
Bride: Mary Thompson
Date: 26 Oct 1830
Place: St. Peters, Leeds, Yorkshire
Batch: M07193-4

No attempt has been made to rule it out by chasing a John R and Mary family.

Only this John & Mary it seems:

Elijah Askham
christening: 15 April 1838 KIRK BRAMWITH,YORK,ENGLAND
father: John Whaley Askham
mother: Mary


I think that 1830 must be the marriage for Richard.

Yeah. That could be Mary in Hunslet.

Curious. Baptism in 1834 in Rothwell but age at marriage and age at death and place of birth in death certificate 'Huddersfield' point to birth in 1833 in Lockwood.


I can't see a birth reg for Frederick.

Deaths Jun Qtr 1846
Askham Frederick Huddersfield 22 283


I'm thinking they were all born Lockwood but baptised at Rothwell perhaps at age 1 or 2 years.

Richard is not a common Askham/Askam name. Actually is seems Askam is more common.

But we appear to be stuck. Richard baptised 1800 Hemsworth - father= Richard - mother could be Hannah:

1841
HO107 Piece 1310 Book/Folio 3/18 Page 5
Civil Parish: South Kirkby
Hundred: Osgoldcross (Upper Division)
County: Yorkshire
Registration District: Pontefract
Sub-RD: Ackworth
ED: 11
Address:
Richard Askham 70 Ag Lab Yorkshire
Hannah Askham 60 Yorkshire

I've got Rothwell marriages to 1812, Hunslet Bap. to 1802, bur. to 1812, not a lot of help!
Oh. That's a pity.

One thing I didn't try previously was to trace Richard's siblings to see if there were any clues:

James c. 1802 ** can't see in 1841
Elizabeth c. 1804
Hannah c. 1807
Thomas c. 1809 ** can't see in 1841
