PS.  Hannah Marsh's date of birth can be fixed at around 1797 but I don't yet have her maiden name.  She was born in Flushhouse, Austonley, so is definitely a local.

Well we've cracked it.  I now know how the Marshes/Crosslands of the dictionary are related to my Croslands.  George Cros(s)land, the father of Joshua Marsh's wife Mary, is the older brother of my great great grandmother Mary Crosland (later Barnes) - both being children of Dan and Mary Crosland originally of Hepworth.  I now have quite a comprehensive file on that Crosland family in the early/mid nineteenth century if anyone wants to know more.
It may also be of interest to note that George Cros(s)land's wife Ruth was a Heywood and that Joshua Marsh's mother Hannah's maiden name was Mellor - hence the Mellor connection of the dictionary.
Many thanks for helping to make all this possible.  Without the information on the dictionary I would almost certainly not have worked out why Joshua Marsh was the informant on my great great grandmother's death certificate.

You're very welcome. I'm delighted there's been so much interest (I think I've emailed the pages to about half a dozen folk so far), and that it's helped you to establish a connection and tie up a few loose ends. It's also been interesting to find out where the Mellor entries fit in.

If WRC35a happens to come across David Marsh b.appx 1776 and his wife Sarah of Flushouse/Austonley I'd be glad to hear any info ( I have them in the 1841 census and a few refs in the Holmfirth parish records but haven't got onto matching David with your Marshes yet)
Thanks in advance.

Just to confirm a rural stereotype, I have only just discovered that I am related to some Mellors of Flushhouse via an 1881 marriage in another strand of the family.  I'll put a note on here if I find out exactly how they link in to the Mellors and Marshes of the dictionary.

This was an amazing find! And what help it's been eh!
I have stumbled upon this because I'm researching some obscure cottage in hoobram that my ancestors lived in. They were all from the Holme ridge,Hinchcliffe mill areas. We are the wibberleys/field. I will certainly keep my eye out on my research for any of these names you guys have mentioned :-)

Great that this thread is still of interest eight years after I first started it!

The dictionary itself has long since been given a new lease of life by being repaired and rebound and looks a lot smarter than it did when I first bought it.
