Thanks Peter.

That's a bit of a surprise. Born Norton is correct but that would be the only ref as Nellie. Marriage, later census and death all Elizabeth:

1891
RG12 Piece 3121 Folio 31 Page 12
Civil Parish: Great Bolton
Municipal Borough: Bolton
Ecclesiastical Parish: Holy Trinity
Registration District: Bolton
Sub District: Great Bolton
Enumeration District: 14
Address: 61 Fletcher Street, Great Bolton
THORNLEY, John Head Married M 33 1858 Ironmonger Bolton Lancashire
THORNLEY, Elizabeth F Wife Married F 31 1860 Norton Durham
THORNLEY, Laura Daughter F 8 1883 Scholar Bolton Lancashire
THORNLEY, Frank Son M 6 1885 Scholar Bolton Lancashire
Deaths Jun 1941
Thornley Elizabeth F H 81 Bolton 8c 479

I'd better do some more work on Elizabeth's parents.

Regards,

Dave

1861 Edward is 32 and Elizabeth A is 20 is a niece not a sister ?

If Elizabeth is Edward's niece and her children are gt grandchildren of Thomas & Elizabeth then she is the granddaughter not daughter. So her father must be Edward's older brother who is not with family in 1841.

That's strange, the tree has Elizabeth Ann's death as 1860, yet they have the 1861 census saying George is still mar. not widower :rolleyes:

In 1871, George says he is unmarried [not widower], divorce ?
