Re: Adlington names
Dear Tony - from my records the first Elizabeth that married Samuel Barratt on 4.6.1807 produced a boy Thomas on 4.6.1809.
The second Elizabeth married on 11.7.1808 produced several off spring as follows :- Richard 14.11.1813; John 29.10.1815; Hannah 20.7.1817; Samuel 4.4.1819; William 11.3.1821: George 26.7.1822; Ann 7.5.1824 - 7.5.1830; Robert 21.12.1825; Peter 28.11.1827; Elizabeth 13.12.1829 - 23.12.1830. Hope this agrees with your findings.
It would appear that Samuel married two Elizabeth Adlingtons, also both carried the short name of Betty.
