lol Ancestry helpfully transcribed that Richard as Ruther!

So, if that's the right Richard he was born in Lancashire possibly approx 1770-1775. There are around a dozen baptisms in Lancashire for a Richard Walker around those dates.

We need to find this man in 1851 to see if it looks like the same man and to pick up his birthplace:

WALKER, RICHARD aged 82
GRO Reference: 1861 M Quarter in WIGAN Volume 08C Page 62

Here he is on FMP:

and Ancestry (don't know which you have)

https://www.ancestry.co.uk/interacti...nSearchResults

So, occ is wrong, but still could be him as I'm sure it's the same man as you found in 1841 as he's in the same place. So, born in Standish which is three miles or so from Wigan and possibly about 1778/9ish.

There are some baptisms around the correct years in Standish for the children of James and Ellen Walker, but no Richard that I can see at the moment. Bap dates and names are:

15 Mar 1772 Ann

17 Mar 1776 Alice

10 Oct 1779 Ellen

May 1784 Jane

She could have been born anywhere, but obviously more likely than not to have been born close-ish to where she lived later.

You need to make a list of the possible baptisms and then see how many you can eliminate.

I presume you have said the wrong year in your last post (1876??). It's unusual for a couple to name two childen the same if the first one hadn't died, but it does happen rarely. I have 10,000 on my tree and only one case of that happening that I'm aware of.

EDIT - I just realised you meant one was Ellen and one Mary Ellen. Again, unusual, but possible. (Assuming they were not almost a century apart!)

Remember Ellen's burial says she was 62 at the end of 1840.
