Was Elizabeth a second wife?

For places of birth to see if that helps us.
As Ralph and Thomas are both born Egton - ? Thomas is the son of a older sister of Ralph's who married a Yeaman (which you have no doubt worked out yourself)

The info found by Stuart and myself could reasonably lead to the conclusion that Thomas was actually nephew-in-law................

Thank you all so much! Very appreciated and helped me when I couldn't work it out. Been online most of the day looking at various brick walls and this one couldn't be solved alone!

My sincere thanks!
