Thanks so much for this information,I actually live near where Stanley Royd was, never knew I had a relative in there; I used to work in Pinderfields Hospital which was next to it!

sorry about confusion,Martha and Mary were twins,born in Leeds 1840,father Eli Nixon,mother Mary Nixon nee Gibson

Thanks "David" for finding Martha on 1851 Census,no trace of her after this
Regards LIZMIK

OOPS sorry,should be Martha Nixon,they were twins,born 1840 Leeds,parents Eli Nixon b.1807,d.1849; Mary Nixon nee Gibson b.1811 d.1851,
Did wonder where Mary,her twin was so you could have found me the reason she was not with her sister, thanks for taking the time to check for me

My relative Martha Nixon b.1840 Leeds lost both her parents in the Cholera epidemic.I found her on 1851 Census in the Moral and Industrial training school for Pauper children,Leeds; no trace of her after this,is there a list of inmates who died there?

My husband's relative Margaret Hackitt was a Boarder,age 55,living at 6 Phoenix Yard Wakefield on the 1901 Census.She was a widow,working as a charwoman. How can we find where in Wakefield this was?

I have just found another child,Theophilus John E Tolson,born May 1868,Oldham Lancashire; died around August 1868 age 3 months.This information was from Annie Tolson's autubiography;she does not state where the child was buried but 3 of her other children are in Hunslet cemetery,is it possible to check if he is there? I have checked Toxteth Cemetery records as another son is listed there (Redan Tolson d.1857) but no trace of Theophilus.
