Yes, nephew could be wrong. Margery Carr died either Oct or Nov 1883(canít find). Jane Hammersley died 1889, canít find. Maybe should check maiden name Lennox. There is a Jane Lomax died in Manchester 1889. Found Ann MacCormick in 1883.

I may have figured out this family. First of all, I found the birth of William James Hammersley June 4, 1848 in Castledawson. His parents Jane Lennox and William Hammersley were not married. William James was not baptised until 1850.
I believe the parents of this family were John Lennox and Jane Simpson. I haven't found a date of death for John and I haven't received Jane's death certificate as yet (2 more days).

Today, I received the death certificate of Jane Lennox, mother of all these Lennoxes in Rawtenstall. Said she was age 74, widow of John Lennox, carter, and her son-in-law  Samuel Carr was present. Samuel was married to Margery Lennox whose mother was Jane Simpson so now we know who this was.
I  am now waiting for the will of Elizabeth Lennox and the death certificate of Jane Lennox (whom I think is Jane Hammersley) who died 1882.

I have received the death certificates of both Elizabeth Lennox and her sister Jane. Jane died in 1882 and was single with her brother-in-law Samuel Carr present. Still waiting for Elizabethís will.

Hello, I now have Elizabeth Lennox' will  written in Oct 1888 but her death was Feb 16, 1889. She claims to be a widow in the will. I don't get it. In 1861, she is unmarried and living with Richard McCormick and family. In 1881, Elizabeth is living with Jane Hammersley and both say they are widows. In 1889, when Elizabeth dies, there is no indication of her being married as the death simply gives her father's name as Robert which is an error. Doesn't say widow of anyone. But the will  does say widow. I don't think so.
