Well, sister Jane Hammersley supposedly died in 1889. I can't find that either.

There is an online tree that says that Ann McCormick, nee Lennox, died Apr 2, 1883 in Rawtenstall. I found her marriage record in 1852 and she had father John, who was a servant man, and she was born in Co. Derry abt 1835.
this  tree is such a mess.

Age 50 but that may have been a guess by whoever was informant. (Lancashire BMD)
Parents were not named on English death certificates.

On the 1861 census with Jane Lennox and Jane Hammersley, I think the household above might be another daughter of Jane Lennox, named Ann,


Birthplace for all children in household was Manchester. This family had been in England longer than Samuel Kerr/Carr/Corr & family next door. Eldest McCormick child born c.1855, youngest c.1859.

These may be birth registrations for the 2 daughters of Richard & Ann McCormick. Both in Ancoats sub-district.
1854 Jane
1858 Elizabeth A.

Added. I meant to quote part of this and then add children's birth registrations but I clicked "Modify" instead of "Quote". Result - I've deleted most of the original post.  :-[

Another development. So Jane Hammersley’s maiden name must also be McCormick. But shouldn’t Elizabeth be a sister rather than sister-in-law in 1861.
I don’t find Elizabeth married to a Lennox on Irishgenealogy unless it is before 1845.

McCormick for Elizabeth on 1861 census may be an error. Unless sister-in-law meant step-sister, as it sometimes did. I've not seen image of census enumerator's book.
One can't draw any firm conclusions yet from 1861 census.

Household of Richard & Ann McCormick on 1881 census.
Event place: Lower Booths, Lancashire; Reg. district: Haslingden; Residence: East Parade;
Piece/Folio 4134/16;  Registration number RG 11; Page 27
Richard McCormick  47   head;        born Ireland, cotton weaver
Ann McCormick       48   wife           b.    Derry
Elizabeth A.            22   daughter    b. Manchester
David C.                 15   son            b. Rawtenstall
Emmanuel              14   son            b. Rawtenstall  occupation baker
Adam L.                 12   son            b. Rawtenstall
Leah                      19   daughter    b. Rawtenstall

East Parade is the next Street to South St. in Rawtenstall, the address on 1861 census.
Lower Booths was an old township in Rossendale. It contained 3 divisions, Rawtenstall, Constable Lee/Constablee and Oakenhead Wood. The township ceased to exist in 1894 when it was absorbed in the new townships of Rawtenstall and Haslingden.
"The District of Rossendale" pages on Lancashire Online Parish Clerks website
www.lan-opc.org.uk/Rossendale/index.html
Map in menu shows the township boundaries. The McCormick and Kerr families lived in the small township which comprises Rawtenstall town centre, east of Oakenheadwood township.

Birth registrations for 2 children from 1881 census:
1861 MCCORMACK  Leah;               mother's maiden surname Lennox;   Sub-district Newchurch
1865 MCCORMICK   David Clayton;  mother's maiden surname Lennox;   Sub-district Newchurch
Can't see birth registrations for Emmanuel or Adam or for MCormack/McCormick without a forename.
Another child not on 1881 census was John James birth registered 1863.

Death registrations:
1871 MCCORMACK  John James  age 8   Rossendale sub-district
1881 MCCORMICK   Richard       age 47  Rosendale sub-district

You are so very knowledgeable, Maiden Stone and thank you for sharing.
As for my inability to find Elizabeth's will on Gov.uk, I  received this message after my enquiry. "Your enquiry has been passed to the HM Courts & Tribunals team who manage the 'Find a will' service."
There are many online trees that say Richard McCormick died in July 1881. Haven't found that as yet. Didn't find a will listed for either Richard or wife Ann, checking forward at least 10 years.
I googled Emmanuel McCormick and this came up but when I click on the link, I don't find it. Has to be a different Emmanuel as Richard's son is only 10 in 1877. Funnily enough, he was also a baker.

 Marriage: 16 Dec 1877 St Mary, Rawtenstall, Lancs. ... St Mary, Rawtenstall, Lancs. Emmanuel Lord McCormick - (X), 20 years, Baker, Bachelor, Market Street

Probate
16 March. The Will of Elizabeth Lennox, late of 3 East Parade, Rawtenstall in the County of Lancaster, widow who died 17th February 1889

1881 census Haslingden
Elizabeth Lomax 61 Head widow   County Derry, Ireland
Jane Hammersley 57 sister widow   County Derry, Ireland
4134/5/6


Address on 1881 census was Back Bank Street. Bank Street is the main shopping street. East Parade and South Street are behind Bank St. There's also a Back Lane at the top of Bank St. The extended Lennox, Kerr, McCormick family seem to have remained in the same small locality of narrow streets for 3 decades.

I found the birth of John James McCormick, mmn Lennox in Dec quarter of 1863. Fits with death in 1871 at age 8.
