The Common Room / Re: Tom Wood Ash Lane

I was thinking of Ash and the tree, didn't spot the quarry at the top of the lane, if Quarry belonged to Tom Wood the lane may have been the place were he tipped his ash from making lime, thanks

was my thoughts I have checked census records for Upton Hall back to 1841, think it must have been tenant farmers living there because there was no continuity with different families' living and working there  from 1911 to 1841. When current issue with covid is past will probably have a look in Wakefield Archives to check actual ownership. Local wood is called Walton Wood and on the 1850 map shown it has the same footprint as it does today. Can see no other Woods in area, so my thoughts are same as yours it is probably named after a person

I am a member of a local History Group, Upton and North Elmsall History. A long running question locally is how a street got its name. Wondered if anyone has any tips or suggestions what routes are available to solve how places came by their names. TomWood Ash Lane is Upton, Pontefract, West Yorkshire. The map attached is from 1850 it as itís name on this
