Hi Cherie,

Yes sorry Thomas Ellwood!!

His gravestone in CR cemetry:

In affectionate remembrance of Thomas Ellwood of Roans who died 4 Ap. 1867 aged 86 years. also of Mary his wife who died on the 3rd July 1883 aged 78 years. also the children of the above, Frances, died 6 July 1853 aged 20, Margaret died 15 March 1859, aged 25 yrs;, Sarah died 18 July 1871 aged 35 years. , Jane died 24 July 1849 aged 17 wks.

According to the 1851 census, living Roans and was born in Maulds Meaburn.

The best bet for Thomas is the son of William & Frances of MM.

William & Frances's children from CR BMD 1570-1812 is:

Joseph Ellwood Baptised 22/5/1776 Buried 9/1/1780
Sarah Ellwood Baptised 16/6/1778 Buried 21/1/1780
Thomas Ellwood Baptised 15/10/1780
William Ellwood Baptised 12/1/1783
George Ellwood Baptised 17/3/1785
John Ellwood Baptised 16/9/1787
Mary Ellwood Baptised 23/12/1790

From the 1787 census of MM which fits with 4 male children:
Wm ELWOOD
Head
Husbandman
M

Fanny ELWOOD
Wife    
F

[unnamed] ELWOOD

Mary WARD

In the 1841 census the mysterious William could be Thomas' brother. Thomas is aged 55 like William. The ages were not that accurate then often rounded.
