Could someone please have a look for the above born 1810/1813. On the index at Fmp she will probably be the one at Northallerton district. Her husband is called John. She was born Kirby Sigston, Yorkshire. Thank you.

Thank you, based on the childrens names I think Darlington family is the most likely. Elizabeth's father was called Francis and her mother was called Alice and she had a brother called Robert and a sister called Ann, or is it wishful thinking on my part :-)

Have you any idea of her husband's occupation? How did you work your way back to them?

Hello Jan, I don't know anything about her husband just that they married in 1838. On 1871 it says born Siyston which I think is mis spelt and should be Sigston as in Kirby Sigston so I think it is them.

Been looking on the 1881 census which agains says she was born Foxton which I have just googled and it is close by Kirby Sigston. She is living with her son and his family.
