Hi,

Possible marriage? -

Birth Year - abt 1867

In 1881 Elizabeth is a servant in the district of Huddersfield. therefore she's in the correct location for the above marriage.

Edith Ashworth   1

The above census shows Elizabeth with her daughters Edith and Georgina Ashworth.

Therefore it would appear that Elizabeth Ann Ashworth went on to marry Tom Turner.

Marriage details -

Elizabeth Ann Ashworth, 40 widow
Marriage Date - 17 May 1908
Marriage Place:   St Mary, Barnsley,  Yorkshire
Father - Edward Lawton (dec) Colliery Deputy
Spouse - Thomas Tumer
Witnesses - Tom Strutt and Edith Ashworth

There is a difference in Elizabeth's father's name from her first marriage, however I believe she made up her father's name for both marriages to 'save face'. This often happened when the person in question was illegitimate.

WOW JJen thank you very much I'm sure this will be of some interest to relatives.   May I ask where this info came from ?   I have definitely heard them mention the name Tom Strutt so I can say we are on the right line. 
Can I just clarify...............   1) Elizabeth Ann Lawton first married William Ashworth and they had
                                               daughters--  Edith Ashworth and Georgina Ashworth.

                                          2)  E. Ann was then widowed aged 40 and married  Thomas Turner.
                                                                 correct !!
Thank you once again
