My John Ellwood was born to Agnes Thirnbeck and John Ellwood around 1844. He was born in Middleton, Westmorland. Attached you will find him on the 1851-1881 Census records with:
1851: With his grandparents - John Ellwood and Mary Shepherd
his parents - John Ellwood and Agnes Thirnbeck
1871: With his wife, and then just below his mother-in-law Alice Wilkinson and two of her grandchildren.
1881: with his wife and children (Mary, William and Joseph)
In 1883 they all hopped a ship to NY- along with his wife's daughter from another relationship- the ship manifest is also
My John's siblings were: William, Robert, James, Mary Jane, Christopher, Edwin, Agnes and Elizabeth.
The John in the middle (John II) was
born in Crosby Ravensworth to John (I) and Mary (maybe Shepherd, maybe Jackson) about 1825. His siblings were: Elizabeth, Margaret, Hannah and Agness- These were the children of John Ellwood and Mary; Or at least that is what I have in my records.
John Ellwood (I), born ? around 1791 married Mary, but I don't have any imperical evidence that shows whom his parents were.
