Lane was a area also in Holmfirth

That will be the same place that I located in reply #5   In 1861 Upperthong Parish consisted of two sub-registration districts, Holmfirth and Newmill.

Lane is also the name of the small hamlet just beyond Holme village in the diredtion of Holme Moss. A bit far from Upperthong, though.

Though there are lots of lanes as  pronounced "a Lane" -- in the singular place of Lane - locally its spoken or pronounced 'Lann' (Sound like ' LYNE ' )

In my opinion the marriage residence is not always the place of birth. Never forget Workhouse and overseers accounts records of birth

The thing which I always find fascinating is how in the Holme Valley ( and no doubt elsewhere) even the smallest area can have its own name.
I particularly like as an example the main road from Huddersfield up the valley all the way to Holme:
Chapel Hill, Folly Hall, Rashcliffe, Lockwood Bar, Lockwood Bridge, Salford, Viaduct, Berry Brow, Hangingstones, Alpine, Far Reins, Reins, Honley Newtown, Honley Bridge, Jacobs Well, Banks, Far Banks, Smithy Place, Hagg Wood, Thongsbridge,( name of the garage that used to be there, can't recall), Elmwood, Sands, Mills Bridge, Tech, Holmfirth, Upper Bridge, Prickleden?, Victoria, ....... need to just check. Will continue.
Any additions from anyone?

So, just picking up again.
From Thongsbridge:
Thongsbridge, Fearnought, Elmwood, Sands, Mills Bridge, (tthe last 5 within a half mile stretch!) Tech, Holmfirth, Upper Bridge, Pricklden, Victoria, Bottoms, Burnlea, Flushouses, Hinchliffe Mill, Holmbridge.
Now this is the one I don't know - place names on the long uphill stretch from Holmbridge to Holme village.
Then Holme, Lane, Holme Moss.

Holme Moss summit (at Ramsden Head) and there about 10 yards where rain water flows into Yorkshire from  Derbyshire before the rain water flows South.
