Were parents of Elizabeth (Small) unknown-401995 William and Mary Atkinson of Thornton Curtis?

0 votes
I think Unknown-401995 might be Elizabeth Atkinson (or Adkinson). This is based on:
Her daughter, Charlotte Ellis (Small-4329), in the 1851 census, is with her Aunt, Ann Glover, a widow, also born in Thornton, Lincolnshire in ~1778.
There were two sisters, of the correct names and yob, baptised in Thornton Curtis  Elizabeth and Ann Atkinson (or Adkinson in one record), both daughters of William Atkinson/Adkinson  and Mary.
(note: Thornton Curtis is not the same place as Thornton; was it abreviated in the census returns, or were Elizabeth Small and Ann Glover really born in Thornton, rather than Thornton Curtis? If the latter they can't be the Atkinson sisters.)

Could anyone help confirm or refute this theory?

Thanks. South Kyme is in South Lincolnshire, near Boston.
However, "Small" is Elizabeth's married name. She wouldn't have been baptised with it.
