Jonw --- I must confess I didn't even look! I only answered the first question. (Bone Idle is my other user name).

I don't know what to say about your 2 baptisms discovery - always a nightmare. You are just too good at this!

Great research jonw!

So we only need another one and we would have a quorum!!

I would agree with jonw here for the same reason. The names of parents were often passed down through families in those days.

Were these people Quakers by any chance, or was it a C of E marriage.

I can only find Sarah's baptism amongst the Hampshire Baptisms on Find My Past. It's a transcribed record. Father shown as John.

There aren't all that many Hampshire baptisms on that site - but she was the only result, using 1775 plus or minus 2 years.

I couldn't see her baptism on Ancestry or Family Search (although that doesn't mean it's not there!)

Also - do you have the death certificate please, for the one who died in 1840? The person who registered the death may be one of her children - then you would know.

In addition - you say you have the burial details - was the burial at the same place as her husband?
(Sorry about all the questions.)

The 1861 Sarah Ventham - I can't see in 1841 - in fact I cannot immediately see ANY Sarah Ventham in Hampshire in 1841 -- but we know that one of them died. The other Sarah may have married or remarried to someone called Ventham between 1841 and 1861. (Unless of course, someone has found a Sarah Ventham in 1841 of the right age - rounded down.)

Rosie - that baptism date is the same date as that one posted by sjjs.

Carol - what a fantastic picture you have found. It's great!

There are photos of old Scarborough here -- all sorts of different ones - but couldn't see a 'Yard' unfortunately. I didn't check ALL the pages, but for anyone with an interest in Scarborough they are really interesting.

Anne, this doesn't answer your question I'm afraid but usually these old yards ran off a main thoroughfare and homes were small and crowded together.

Any epidemics tended to affect the neighbours living in these types of houses, as they were very confined in a relatively small space.

That is just a very general answer and maybe somewhere, in old books about Scarborough, you might be lucky enough to find a photo or an image. (Hopefully someone will pop up with one now!!)

I have an illustration of a 'yard' where a family of my ancestors lived in Preston, Lancs - it was painted in 1896 - but they were living there in the 1840's -- it was off what is one of Preston's main shopping streets in the town centre.

I appreciate it's not one of 'your' yards - but you can imagine that these places termed as 'yards', would look similar. Image below.
