Re: Womersleys before civil registration in U.K.
My great grandfather, John Briggs (b Brighouse, Yorkshire 1837) married Ellen Womersley (date unknown). At the time of the birth of one of their children, William - my grandfather - (b Brighouse, 6 February 1868), John and Ellen were living at "Common Clifton". Am wondering whether there is a connection?
