Abraham Baines is the grandfather of James Baines and great grandfather to Alice Baines Ellison.

Note on the census his son Henry, James’s father, is 15 years old and is a joiner. It looks like the next word indicates in cupboards. Joiners were carpenters.

Abraham, spelled Abram on the census, is a labourer, discharger, on the River Ribble. His son James, 17, is doing this also.  Thomas’s occupation is listed as corn warehouseman.

The River Ribble is the only river rising in Yorkshire that flows westward and empties into the Irish Sea.  A large Viking silver hoard was found on the river banks, near Preston, in 1840.

Here are some pictures I found of the River Ribble:
