Ellen Whipp, born 1833, Soyland/Ripponden
I am trying to discover the name of the father of my great grandmother, ELZABETH WHIPP (b.12 Jul 1851 Ripponden?, d.1937 Ripponden)
ELIZABETH was illegitimate & therefore took her name from her mother - ELLEN WHIPP (b. Dec 1833 Soyland, d. after 1863).
ELLEN WHIPP's father was WILLIAM WHIPP (b. about 1810-15, d. between 1847 & 1851, & married Hannah Shaw in ELLAND on 8 Apr 1833).
ANY ideas on this very difficult problem would be greatly appreciated.
