Hi. I'm looking to find some help tracking down some information regarding William Horsfall born 1819 in Hebden Bridge in Yorkshire. I know he married a lady called Elizabeth but not sure of the surname. I believe he had a son named William Edward Horsfall who was born in 1851. Any help with locating any census details or anything would be greatly appreciated
