More information from Nichola's documents indicates that David Bailey was indeed the father of the Bailey beneficiaries.His wife Betty must have been a further daughter of Nelley/Ellen Knutton and Joseph Thornton although no baptism has been found for her.Her date of birth, estimated from her age, 35, in the 1841 census, is 1806.Although the 1841 census normally has ages of adults rounded to 5 years this does not appear to have been the case for the page concerned so I am taking 35 as her actual age.She is not in the 1851 census so it appears that she had died before then and the fact that her inheritance was shared between her children supports this as she must have predeceased her aunt.There are several deaths of Elizabeth or Betty Bailey in the Huddersfield district between the two census years.
Elizabeth and Ellen Bailey who, under their married names, share the bequest can be found in the census.I haven't found Elizabeth's baptism but from her age in the census she appears to have been born about 1836.From census data Ellen appears to have been born about 1840 and the only candidate is a registration shown by FreeBMD in the last quarter of 1839.Two other Bailey children, Hannah and Thornton, did not share in the bequest and must have died childless before Mary Knutton.There is only one FreeBMD candidate for Thornton's death but there are a number for Hannah's death.John, who would have been about 14 at the time of the 1851 census is not included in the family but nevertheless was one of the beneficiaries.
The Broadhead family remains to be discovered.
The following is a revised version of Nelley/Ellen's subtree.Note that the Elizabeth Bailey's children are also shown under Thomas Knutton on the previous post.
