Baptized 7th October 1843. I am hoping to find her death or even better, a marriage for her. I have checked FreeBMD, Find My Past and Ancestry when a member, without success. She is last found in the 1851 Census with her age given as 12. The family are living at what what appears to be Longroyd Bridge. Father Alexander, Mother Jane, both from Ireland. Brothers Andrew and Joseph and sisters Elizabeth and Mary. Father Alexander died 2 years later as the result of a quarrying accident. In 1861 just mother, daughter Mary Jane and Granddaughter Jocana(Johanna) are at home and now living at Manchester Road ? ? in Lockwood. Anything on Sophia would be so very much appreciated. Thank you

Just to clarify the information given, where does the baptism take place? If she is 12 on the 1851 then that suggests that she was born in 1839.

She was definitely born 12th October 1843 at Crossthwaite Hill, Lockwood. I have the certificate. So why I put baptism on the 7th I have no idea. I was using original paperwork so must have sent for the birth cert. later. I have no idea at which church she was baptised but it would have to have served Crossthwaite Hill residents. The enumerator probably made the error on the census for 1851 as I understand they did on countless occasions over the decades. Sorry I can't give you more. Her father was Alexander Barnes and Mother Jane nee Forsyth. This may help if anyone has access to parish registers for the area. Thank you for even looking at this for me.

I don't know where Crossthwaite Hill is/was but I wonder if that should be Crosland Hill? It is just up from Lockwood and still has quarries.

I agree Stu, it has to be Crosland Hill. Still no Parish records available online though. Why haven't West Riding taken part in the Parish Clerks project? Lancashire is almost completely covered. Such a shame that a richly historical part of the world doesn't want its information given more freely.

On the 1841 census this family is living in what is clearly written Crosland Hill.

Unfortunately Stu though I agree, this still isn't getting me the answers I was hoping to find here. I am looking for information on Sophia Barnes born 1843. Anything after the 1851 Census i.e. Death, Marriage, Census etc. Have looked as much as I can on all the various web sites so am hoping someone in this group has access to all the church records for that area.
