Thank you so much for all your help. It is very disappointing to reach a dead end. I often wonder why there wasn't a member of Elizabeth's family as witnesses at her marriage. There were 2/3 Granger families in the same area with births around the same time.
Thanks for all your support again.

Hi Maggie,

Have you considered that she may have not been born in Nottingham or Nottinghamshire but just living and working in Nottingham as her husband was and as she did not live until the census started would have no way of knowing, or she was a widow, and that could be way there are on Granger's or Tuckwood's as witnesses.

Hi NG.
I did think about that to be honest. William's family were dead in 1803 except his Uncle? (long story!)Thomas, possibly living in Granby-cum-Sutton with Sarah, his wife and Mary, his sister who was only 11yrs. Is there anyway of finding out who Mary was living with between 1801 and 1819? Her father had remarried in Rauceby  in 1801.
Mary married William Bateman in 1819 in Granby-cum-Sutton.
Thanks again
Maggie
