Could it be Langthwaite? There's a group of Langthwaite places just to the east of Scotforth, on the other side of the M6 (Langthwaite House, Langthwaite Reservoir). On old maps there are villages/farms called Langthwaite, Middle Langthwaite and Lower Langthwaite.

I think this sounds good.
Think of Slaithwaite - ‘Slawit’
We knew a Mr Whitworth who said his name should be ‘Whiterth’

Local pronunciations.

As a southerner I thank you for your suggestions! It's always good to have local knowledge. I'll follow this trail and see what comes up.

According to the marriage, his father was John.

There was an Edward Ormond baptised in Scotforth on 6th June 1818, son of John, a husbandman.

David

P.S. Slight error; born on 6th June, it was in Lancaster, abode Scotforth.

Scotforth ‘includes the hamlet of Langthwaite’.
