Ellen Kerfoot married George Lawrinson at Walton-on-the-Hill in 1764 (previous Forum help has got me back to this point!) For a while I had thought that Ellen was the daughter of Robert Kerfoot, a shoemaker, but it would have meant she was only 15 when she married as the baptism record I have for her is 1749 - her sister was born in 1738 and was also called Ellen but died the following year.
However, I recently found a burial record for Ellen showing she was buried at Walton-on-the-Hill (St Mary's?) in 1795. This record confirms she was the wife of George of Lowhill so I know I am with the right family and that she was 56, giving a d.o.b of 1739. However, the record also says she was the daughter of William Kerfoot - my record from Ancestry is rather unclear but the Lancs OnLine confirms these details. Ancestry transcript has the father as Beorg Lawrenson and no mention of William Kerfoot if anyone is trying to access the record!
I have found a marriage between a William Kerfoot and Eliza Lawton in 1731 but no baptism record for Ellen although I thought I had seen one somewhere recently for 1736 - would have only been on FamilySearch, Ancestry or Lancs OnLine but I'm blowed if I can find it again, assuming it was there in the first place, of course! Can anyone else see a suitable record?
As always, many thanks,
