Hi Alan, Thanks for the quick response! I have a copy of a page from the Playfoot family Bible and it reads as follows:
this Bible was presented to Alice Playforth(alt for Playfoot) in Rememberance of her mother ???(word that I can't decipher-looks like hou) died February 27th 1875.
Jane Blenkinsop Swine Sunday School 1859 I know that George Arthur Playfoot married a lady called Alice(1901 census) born 1863(family bible). They had daughters Jane Elizabeth and Alice May +other children. My theory,such as it is, is that this Bible was given to Jane on the occasion of her marriage (so she could have been Earnshaw at birth!!!)/birth of 1st child and then was presented to Alice similarly. This is obviously very tentative and I have no real evidence. Regards. Janet
