My great-grandmother Alice Baines Ellison was the daughter of James Baines and Elizabeth Ellen Livesey both of Preston, Lancashire, England. Alice immigrated to America in1911 with her parents. She was their only child.

Elizabeth Ellen Livesey was the daughter of Reuben Livesey and Alice Prince. The picture below was taken in 1937. I do not know who the Shaw’s were. Do you?

Uncle “Jack” John Livesey was born circa 1879. Was Aunt Agnes his wife? Or now Mrs. Shaw? Margaret Livesey took the photo. Was she Uncle Jack’s wife?

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.
