Hi Paul,

Yes, thank you very much, I have found that one. I think you will find the name is Danks, not Banks. I can only assume that Mary Ann was the wife of one of Merwin's sons. I have found 6 children so far: Edwin <1836>, George 1839, Isaac 1849, Sarah Ann 1851, Maria 12.12.1852 and Joshua <1857>. I need to find Mary Ann on an earlier census with her husband!

Thanks again.

Jill

Think you are out of luck with this Jill. In 1871 they are at Salop St too (RG10-3010/41)

SOPHIA DANKS 47 yrs 35760
MARY A. HARTSHORN 23 yrs 35761
EDWIN HARTSHORN 3 yrs 35761

Can't tell what relationship Mary Ann is to Thomas, a single letter then "wife" possibly, and to be honest I could not tell if her status was a "W" or something else. Sorry.
In 1861 Merwin's age is clearly 43 so you don't need to worry about that :)

Hi Gardener,

Thank you so much for that, and what a useful site!

It looks to me as if Mary Ann Hartshorn could be the widowed daughter of Thomas & Sophia Danks in the 1861 and by the time of the 1871 she has got herself a boyfriend, i.e. Moses Perks.   I think I now need to be looking for her marriage to a Hartshorn followed by his fairly rapid death.

Many thanks again.

Great findings!

Hack:  'Executioner & Shoe Dealer' is much more interesting than shoe repairer and keycutter (the current bizarre combination) - and it brings new meaning to the words 'Dead Man's Shoes' :D 
Broakham - couple of fine points for you
tabitha - love it love it love it!

Sorry Tabitha, you're getting too close so I'll have to throw in Obadiah Migbrow, a patient in Chesterfield Hospital in 1881.

Do family 'businesses' count?  -  George Broadhurst - knocker up  and his wife Elizabeth - midwife.  ;)   1881 census - Ecclesall Bierlow.
