Thanks Heywood. Yes it's possible isn't it. Can you make out what her occupation is in the 1891 census, it looks something like "Frame Tinter" .... is that anything to do with hats?
There is the Rochdale connection, Ambrose was born there, and it seems that Hetty moved there when Matthew left. A weak connection but it's something.
There is no mention of her middle name, but I suppose that was just something she liked to mention when she had left home.
And she doesn't seem to use any male family member names for her kids, but that probably doesn't mean much.

Sorry Heywood. Just sent my post and then saw your latest afterwards.
That's excellent, I guess that clinches it, she is from this family.

Well, it looks very favourable.

She is a Frame Tenter in 1891.

If you decide to look at Ambrose Taylor -it looks as though he married twice- Ruth Stott 1872 and Ann Wood in 1879.

Thanks. So Frame tenters work in a mill ... nothing to do with hats!
And Ambrose married twice, what a complicated family.
Grandma used to say "If I could write a book it would be a damn good read" ... now I know what she meant!
Found the 1881 census, they are living in Royton, so that's another plus.

Didn't we do well!   :)  It helps that Henrietta and Ambrose are less common names. If they'd been called Mary and John Taylor instead  :-\, we would still be looking.
How many wives did Hetty's "husband" leave? I lost track on the other thread. If they were left destitute with dependant children and applied for poor relief there might be records or even a mention in a newspaper if the father was summonsed for not supporting the children. (Several "if"s there.)

and there is a story about a sister of Hetty dying in a tragic accident at school, her dress cought fire from the stove in the classroom. Her mother was obviously heartbroken and died not long after.
This may have been reported in local newspaper. Many historic newspapers are available to read online through British Newspaper Archive or FindMyPast, both free to access at public libraries in Britain which have subscriptions to them. If you have a library membership ticket for a subscribing library it's possible to register with the British Library Archive from your own computer. When I don't know which newspaper, I try searching under surname in Lancashire.
As it seems that Ambrose married again in 1879, Hetty's mother presumably died sometime between Hetty's birth and 1879.

Possible death registrations for Ruth Taylor from Lancashire BMD.
1877 Royton sub-district; Ruth Taylor age 28   (registers at Oldham)
1877 Spotland Further sub-district; Ruth Taylor age 36   (registers at Rochdale)
1878 Castleton Near; Ruth Taylor age 41   (registers at Rochdale)

Could this have been the daughter who died?
1876 Royton sub-district; Ruth Taylor age 6
I only looked for death registrations for Ruth Taylor. There were probably many other Taylor children who died.
