I note they had several children born in Helmsley, the eldest son being John 1780 and 2nd daughter Betty 1786..
Naming patterns (See below) can help but not all families followed them exactly but some names often appear.

I cannot find the  Christopher Dawson dob 1755? east moors? helmsley Yorkshire you mention,
What site was it on?

First son was named after the father's father.
Second son was named after the mother's father.
Third son was named after the father.
Fourth son was named after the father's oldest brother.
Fifth son was named after the father's 2nd oldest brother or mother's oldest brother.

First daughter was named after the mother's mother.
Second daughter was named after the father's mother.
Third daughter was named after the mother.
Fourth daughter was named after the mother's oldest sister.
Fifth daughter is named after the mother's 2nd oldest sister or father's oldest
sister.

Hi Janice,

Colin was just explaining the naming pattern.
It can be helpful when trying to sort out families.

If say the first son was called John then you might think Christopherís father was possibly John
And second daughter Betty.  So possibly Christopherís mother = Betty/Elizabeth or other variant

We all learn as we go.  I have found it very useful over the years to just click the ďnotifyĒ button on a thread that looks a bit similar to one of your own problems and then watch how it gets solved, (or not).  Iíve learned an awful lot about different techniques and sources that way.  Especially the sources that are online but not indexed.

Ps Iíve added a bit to my last reply.
