I read it as “Tissington” before I read the comments. One of Derbyshire’s many honeypots.

Thanks for the responses.

I just wish i could find some baptisms to tie in.

I had found three baptisms in 1826 in East Farndon - one for Elizabeth, stated as aged 13 (which ties nicely), as well as Charlotte and Jane (no ages given) to a Samuel and Mary.  Looking at Charlotte's marriage in 1837 to William Letts and subsequent census's it suggests she might have been born about 1817, with father Samuel shown as a Shoemaker on the marriage entry. 

There is also an earlier baptism for Jane in 1796 in East Farndon to Samuel and Mary - but no Lois.

I wondered whether the family had spent some time in Derbyshire after Jane was born, and that Elizabeth and Lois might not have been baptised, hence Elizabeth's late baptism in 1826.

Regards
