Hello Stephanie,

It may be that we share common ancestors:

My Great Grandmother, Betsy Baker Parker, was born in Liverpool, where her father, Thomas, had moved.  He was a White Cooper and Beerhouse Keeper from Grindley Brook near Whitchurch, Shropshire.

According to the 1951 census he was living in Wybunbury near Nantwich, Cheshire with his parents Thomas and Elizabeth (nee Hockenhull - I think).  His married sister, Betsy Baker (who my Great Grandmother was named after) was also living with them.

In 1841 the family were living in Pillory Street in Nantwich.  There were two more children listed on the census.  In addition to Thomas and Betsy there was John and Mary (your Great Great Grandmother?).
