Re Elizabeth Pratt. Can't find any mention of her parents, but have deduced that she's probably Richard Pratt's daughter.
She's living with her grandparents in 1881 as well, when she was 6.

In the 1871 census, for James Sr's family, there's an older son Richard, born c.1849.
In 1873 there's this marriage:

Marriages Sep 1873 (>99%)
MILES Mary Elizabeth Sculcoates 9d 213
PRATT Richard Sculcoates 9d 213

In 1876 there's this death, which is the only one of a woman of suitable age in Selby district between 1875 and 1881:

Deaths Jun 1876 (>99%)
Pratt Mary Elizabeth 21 Selby 9c 447

And then there's Richard's death:
Deaths Mar 1877 (>99%)
PRATT Richard 28 Selby 9c 451

So Elizabeth was orphaned and living with her grandparents from the age of 2, at the latest.

RE Jane Wood (born 1844) there is this burial:

Jane Wood, 24, buried 28 March 1867 in Skelton, North Yorkshire

Can she be found on the 1861 to maybe confirm?
