Hello, and welcome to RootsChat!

As KGarrad says, we really need a little more information to help you:

A few questions: According to the 1851 census, when and where was Eleanor born?  Was she living with her parents/husband/children?  Is Leighton her maiden or married name?

Tell us what you know about Eleanor, and if appropriate, I will move your query to the Northumberland board. ;)

Hi again, and incorrectly transcribed on my site as surname HIGHTON and Eleanor shown as Emma and aged 43 and not 53!

William Highton 44 occ Colliery Lab b Haltwhistle
Elanor 53
James 17
Joseph 11
Residing at Mr George Houses, Seaton Burn
Census Ref RG09/3846/95/10

So, in the research that was carried out by your late father's friend did they find out when Eleanor & William married, to find her maiden name or possibly a Widow?



 The only possibly pre marriage for Eleanor I could locate to accomodate the son-in-law William Dixon aged 17 on the 1851 census was this one:-

William Dixon to Eleanor Nesbit 1st March 1835 Tynemouth

And this possible baptism for her:-

Eleanor Nesbit born 24th November 1809 christened 17th December 1809 Christ Church, Tynemouth Father James Mother Ann Hunter
