Seeking parents for Elizabeth Appleyard born about 1823 in Northowram

+5 votes
Married Rickinson Pickhills 29 Jan 1840 in Halifax.

We know her Father is William Appleyard. Named on marriage certificate for Elizabeth Appleyard and Rickinson Pickhills. William Appleyard is also present at the death of Clara Pickhills (Rickinson's mother) at Old Dolphin, Clayton (recorded on Clara's death certificate) in 1838. John Appleyard was present at death of Jane Pickhills (daughter of Rickinson & Elizabeth) on 6 August 1844 at Northowram - she was 8-months old - this is on her death certificate. I assume that John is possibly Elizabeth's brother. That is all I know.

Thanks for the info...and if only it was that easy. Just about every family in the area has a William, a John and an Elizabeth in the fact, I think everyone in England lol. Without knowing his wifes name, and if any other children it is really difficult to pinpoint. If I had Elizabeths actual birth date or gaptism it might give more detail, but without that it is hard. The one baptism nesr that date for 1825 is way off course with place. I also know that in 1841, Rickinson & Elizabeth were living in Fold, Northowram with George Rickinson Swan Pickhills born 1839, and 5 month old Henry Moorsom Pickhills born 1840...the year they got married. According to that census, she was 19 yo, thus born about 1822. However in 1851 census, she was born in 1824. According to others, they could have lied in the 1841 census due to her marrying underage. Putting in what information I do have on her family - and considering that in 1941 she and Rickinson and kids are listed separately - and putting in Northowram as residence...a presumption on my part...only brought in one possible result in the 1951 census...In Horbury, a William Appleyard, 61, born in Thornhill and a woollen clothier?: wife Martha 60: children Joseph 20, John 16, James 14, Frederick 9, and Martha 7. Or perhaps I just have to consider that I may never know.

If you go to and put in John Appleyard approx age

1820-1825 then put William down as a parent you will see a number of choices.
