Hi emjsw,

there's not much here to help you as place of birth isn't listed on the 1841 census.

The only information is that Samuel Scorthorne, ages 60, not of the parish, is an agricultural labourer. His wife Ann (56) and daughter Mary (9 - is born in Notts) are also listed.

I assume that this is the same Samuel who died in 1846 in Worksop?

Sorry I can't be of more help.

emjsw - a possible lead for you:

in 1861 there is an Ann Scorthorne, widow, living with an unmarried daughter, Sarah Scorthorne (53, born 1808) and a widowed daughter, Elizabeth Simpson (56) and her daughter.

It states Ann is from Yorkshire originally, and the granddaughter was born in Sheffield. It might be nothing, but it is probably worth investigating, if only to rule it out.

Thanks ever so much for the lead, it is great to have something to investigate when you hit a brick wall. Thanks for your help :)
