      Hi

      According to the National Archives, Edmund & family were in Bolton in 1742:

      [no title or date] WQ/SR/154/1


      These documents are held at Cumbria Record Office, Kendal

      Contents:
      Petition of Edmund Ellwood of Bolton: has wife and 2 small children in extreme poverty, was blacksmith but because of misfortune had to sell tools, would willingly work if possible, desires overseers to find tools or allow him allowance.
      Date: 1742
