Ruskie,

You're great with maps, have you found anything close for 1851 which probably doesn't exist now  :-\

the person in question is Mary. She married Roger Wood in 1814 as Mary Beckinson, Widow. Have been unable to find her first marriage or even the death of her first husband.

Her death in 1854 in Wigan states her age as 66 and so birth year (approx) 1789.

Hmm...

I wonder if the name Yetton/Yelton was part of Yealand but disappeared over time  :-\

Add, just a thought while typing, it may be an idea to email Lancashire Archives?

"Kirkheaton has been known as Yetton, Heton and Heptone over the years."

No idea where to start looking Annie.  ;D

Kirkheaton/Yetton/Heton/Hepstone fits but the census snip specified Yetton in Lancaster, whereas Kirkheaton is in W Yorkshire.

Of course it is possible that Lancaster was written in error ...

On the 1841 census was she in Lancashire? Does it say she was born in the county or not?

Thanks again everyone. I came across a 'Welton' in Lincolnshire. Doesn't seem a likely match though. Might have to put this one in the 'brick wall' pile!
