Hi Sarah, I have an Ann Elleker married my direct ancestor John Chapman at Middleton by Pickering late 1700's. She came from Danby in Cleveland but father was Robert Allicar. Come across various spellings. A story exists that my family have a claim of some sort in Chancery to do with the Ellerkers. I have done some research into both Risby and Ellerker Ellerkers but found nothing. Ever come across anything? My Gt Grandparents even gave their children the middle name of Ellerker.
