Ancestral Places in England for Descendants of Harold D and Alice Baines Ellison

8 Sep

I put this together recently and thought others may get some use out of it, especially if traveling to England.

Ancestral Places:

Ellison – Other surnames in Ellison family: Cooper, Ambler

From Wikipedia “Easingwold is a small market town and a civil parish in North Yorkshire, England. It has a population of 4,233.[1] It is located 13 miles (21 km) north of York, at the foot of the Howardian Hills.”

~Supposed Burial site of Walker Ellison, father of Benjamin Walker Ellison died 31 MAR 1841

From St Wilfrid’s Church website: St Wilfrid’s Church is located at the northern end of the village, alongside the B6160. Parking is normally available on the roadside, except during the high tourist season, when there will usually be space in one of the car parks in the village. The church is open every day during daylight hours.

From Wikipedia “Burnsall is a village and civil parish in the Craven district of North Yorkshire, England. It is situated on the River Wharfe in Wharfedale, with a five-arched bridge over which the Dalesway passes, and is in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. It is 2 miles (3.2 km) southeast of Hebden, along a river path dated to Viking times.”

~Monumental inscriptions inside church North Aisle of Mary Maria and Benjamin Ellison, parents of Walker Ellison, died 25 MAR 1829 and 20 MAR 1832.

From Wikipedia “Otley is a market town and civil parish in the metropolitan borough of the City of Leeds, West Yorkshire, England, by the River Wharfe.”

~ Walker Ellison and Margaret Cooper married here 11 NOV 1838

  • Baildon – this is the village the Ellison’s, Ambler’s and Cooper’s lived in for what I think are several generations. The Ambler’s were a prominent, wealthy family and the Ellison’s owned a woolen mill in 19th century.

From Wikipedia “Baildon is a civil parish and village north of Bradford in Northern England. It is part of the Bradford Metropolitan District in the metropolitan county of West Yorkshire and within the historic boundaries of the West Riding of Yorkshire. It lies 5 miles (8 km) north of Bradford and 9.5 miles (15 km) northwest of Leeds city centre.”

John Prince Family of Preston, Lancashire, ENG

29 Jul

Alice Prince was the mother of Elizabeth Ellen, wife of James Baines. James and Elizabeth Baines were the parents of my great-grandmother Alice Baines Ellison.

Note that Alice Prince is only 16 years old and is a boarder. Her occupation is power loom weaver of cotton in Preston.

Why is Alice Prince living all on her own at the age of 16, working very hard in a factory?

If we look at the 1861 Census for England, when Alice was 6, we find her living in Preston, Lancashire with her parents John and Penelope Prince and her two little sisters, Sarah and Ellen. Her father is a Boot Maker and Alice is listed as a scholar.

Now we must find John Prince on the 1871 Census for England. We find him in Preston, Lancashire but he is living only with two small children, John and Fanny. He is listed as a Widower. It appears Penelope has passed away.  John is still making a living as a Boot Maker. Where are the other children, though, Sarah age 13 in 1871 and Ellen only 11?
