Hi Kevin, Thanks. I wasn't aware of this site. The fact we can choose nearby places is good, because despite I'm in the UK, I'm not too familiar with areas of Yorkshire, so this kind of pinpoints the best possibilities.
I just checked it, put in relevant details, dates between 1819-1832 etc. Nothing at all for Masham itself.
However, between that 13 year period, nearby places has found 2 possibilities,..... but the Elizabeth baptised at Northallerton, 1820, parents James and Elizabeth, could possibly be her. She might not necessarily have been baptised in Masham.
Why I'm more leaning toward her, is because there is an 1841 Census with a widowed Elizabeth Hodgson, born and living at Masham, with daughter Mary Hodgson present, born 1824. And a Mary Hodgson born 1824, is showing on the results, as a sister of an Elizabeth Hodgson 1820.....Father James Hodgson, who died before 1841, was a Labourer. .....Elizabeth is listed as Labourer, in 1841 at Masham.
Worryingly though, there is no Joseph Hodgson listed as a sibling of Elizabeth, between those 13 years. The only Joseph, is the son of a Mark Hodgson, mother Ann. ....A Joseph Hodgson aged 10, born between 1828-1832, appears with Elizabeth on the 1841 Census in Masham. ....However, it doesn't state the relationship. I'd assumed he was perhaps a brother.
I'm going to look further into the info supplied though, so thanks again.
