In Reply to: Ellen Haigh of Huddersfield by Jane Scott of 692

Hello Jane

Matthew and Hannah HAIGH were living at Storths, Huddersfield when the 1851 census was taken (31 March)
(ref Enumeration District 4D, folio 689, page 156)

Matthew was aged 41, a blacksmith and born in Kirkburton
Hannah was aged 40 and born in Dalton
Elizabeth (daughter) was aged 13 and born in Dalton
Ellen was aged 9 and born in Dalton

I cannot see where Matthew was baptised - not in St Peters, Huddersfiled or Almondbury about 1810. No marriage for Matthew and Hannah up to 1837 at St Peter's, Huddersfield so maybe just after civil registartion started on 1 July 1837.

In 1881, the widowed Hannah was living at

       Dwelling:       Storths
       Census Place:       Dalton In Huddersfield, York, England
       Source:       FHL Film 1342045 PRO Ref RG11 Piece 4379 Folio 125 Page 11
        Marr       Age       Sex       Birthplace
Hannah HAIGH       W       70        F       Dalton, York, England Rel:       Head
       Occ:       House Keeper
Mary HAIGH       U       29        F       Kirkheaton, York, England Rel: Dau
       Occ:       House Keeper Dom
Elizabeth TUNNACLIFFE       W       76        F       Dalton, York, England Rel:       Aunt
       Occ:       House Keeper Dom

The name TUNNACLIFFE may eb a clue to Hannah's maiden name.
