Hi
Yes, sorry, Elizabeth Ann buried 1860! :-[
I am thinking now that maybe Elizabeth might well have died in 1866, and buried at Victoria Park. Age 38, up a bit.
William John Postlethwaite buried a year earlier, but it says he was 5 years old on the burial and death reg, when the Clerkenwell born one would not yet be 4. Also death registered in Holborn (close I know), address (whatever it is!) looks a bit unlikely to me as well.

There was a William John born in Shoreditch at the end of 1859, perhaps it was that one who died in 65?

More details

William John's father John Postlethwaite

Birthplace Frizington! Do they mean residence?

I see that William J Postlethwaite was a tinsmith.

So is this him in 1881, going under his mother's surname?

RG 11/ 5183/ 95 / 9

Chapel Row, Frizington

In the household of Thomas Rucastle

William J Page, boarder, unm, 19, tinsmith, London Middlesex

Great finds Jen!
So Elizabeth didn't die in 1866! Does it mean that John Postlethwaite was heading homewards and died before 1871?
The daughter possibly may have married in Bootle in 1886.

Possibly not right. A newspaper article indicates that this John Postlethwaite was a shoemaker of Maryport  :-\

Can't see anyone like that in 1851 and 1861.
In 1901 William John did say that he was born in Maryport.

Do we know John's trade when he joined the army?

Husbandman according to his record in WO 116
Images 25, 26

He may have been given a pension for a limited time? Pity!
There is a John Postelthwaite of the 2nd Life Guards indexed three times in the WO 23 registers on a pay site. They give the district the pension was paid from, and also will note a date of death (go up to mid 1870's)
