I think Hannah's family were from Edwinstowe despite her being born in Babworth. However if my calculations are wrong, and yours are right then this could be some sort of break through.

IF the other tree is in someway connected then I have a John Townrow (b. 1777) un accounted for. He had two brothers (Benjamin b. 1775, William b.1779) and two sisters (Hannah b.1773, Mary b.1783) but Benjamin and William both had children whilst ive no records of a marriage nor any children for John, he could be the link between the two Townrow trees.

Hannah says she was born at Norwell, the 1841 census shows a William and Elizabeth Warsop living at Norwell, both ages are 65 and he is a Carrier.

To be honest I don't really know a lot about the Worsop family, its only Hannah as she is involved in my tree via marriage.

Looking at 1841 it is possible that Benjamin and William Townsend were still alive. There is a Benjamin born about 1776 living at Newark and a William born about 1791 at Eakring. There are not many Townsend's at all in Nottinghamshire. There is a John born about 1781 living at Greasley, but that is away from all the others.

From the unconnected tree I do have a Benjamin Townrow b. 1775, Newark Upon Trent, could be close. He did have a son born 1808 named Henry but he also had two other sons (John b.1805 and William b.1806) whilst Elizabeth, his only daughter was born 1818.

Now if the two henry's are that of the same then there is the link.

Well I don't know whether this will help or not. The Benjamin living at Chain Lane Newark, 65 is a Corn factor. The other members of the household are Catherine 40, Henry 3 and Catherine 5. plus a servant. No relationships given.

For anyone who has a family tree builder on their computer and can accept GED files then ive uploaded my tree: http://www.geocities.com/pholland1984/townrow001.ged

That tree is the one which so far bares no connection to mine, hopfully Henry Townrow will supply the link, it looks as though only 3 years will decide if they are connected or not.

The tree which you can view isn't quite complete, I only made it today and only lists dob and baptisms, deaths aren't on yet whilst marriages and children still need to be reserached for some familys.

I'm not convinced there is an immediate connection to the Newark Townrows .... although never rule out finding it further back :)

It seems the Thomas and Elizabeth who had children at Edingley married at Farnsfield 01/12/1794. According to Phillimores marriages Thomas Townrow was, at that time, of the parish of Cuckney. Just to place it geographically, 5 miles from Edwinstowe.

So it's quite possible they flitted between their two home areas?

There is a likely Elizabeth Townrow born Farnsfield c. 1773 on the 1841/51 census.
