That occ. for Thomas would fit with post #8.
 
I was wrong about an older brother (niece of Edward) not with family in 1841.

Looks to be James aged abt 19.

Elizabeth Ann Balshaw was born in Bolton 29th Sept 1840 Father James, mother Rebecca. Her mother died in 1842 and it appears Elizabeth Ann lived with her grandparents Thomas Balshaw and Elizabeth Balshaw nee Jessop. She married George Skelton who was a tutor at Norton Grammar school and had 2 Children there. She was living with her uncle Edward Balshaw who met George Skelton at Cambridge University
 
Hi Jabez,

The family is on a remote branch of my tree well off a direct line.

I'll check to see if I have any other queries re the family.

Have you got a tree for this family I would be interested in this. Elizabeth Ann died at Southsea November 22nd 1882 listed as the wife of Dr John Horrocks.
I don't know if they married I could not find a marriage or a divorce. I know this to be correct because it was amongst papers belonging to Nellie Skelton (Elizabeth F.H) born Norton.

Hi Jabez,

Sorry, I have no information re Elizabeth Anne. I had assumed she had died before George, but after posting here found that was wrong.

I've had a look for the marriage, even assuming she remarried once before marrying John, but can't see any marriage that fits.
