316Descendants of John Tallon and Agnes Ellwood
- Jul 11 1:19 AMWe have been looking at the descendants of John TALLON and Agnes ELLWWOD, who
were married in Ulverston, Lancs in 1855 and emigrated to the USA.
Many of their American descendants believe that Agnes was the daughter of
John ELLWOOD and Mary SHEPHERD of Westmorland, but we believe that she was
the daughter of John ELLWOOD and Agnes HARRISON.
The main reason for this is that at the time Agnes TALLON was in America, the
other Agnes was still unmarried, and is shown in the 1861 as a dairymaid on
her parents' farm back in Westmorland. The "other" agnes appeArs to have
married later, and so ought to be fouhnd in the 1871 census of Westmorland,
unless she too emigrated.

Vaol is preparing a comprehensive document on this, with all the evidence,
and we'll upload it to the Elloowd site when it is ready, for anyone who
wants to download it.
The main reason for this "advance notice" is so that anyone interested in
these particular families, who has evidence to counter this theory, please to
let us know what the evidence is.
