Default Ann grimshaw birth approx 1854/55 ormskirk

Hi , Can anyone help , I am trying to find a definite date or place for my great grandma 4x times Ann Grimshaw formerly Robinson . I know she married William Grimshaw in 1873 at St. Paul's skelmersdale . She is supposed to be 19 then . but her husband is 20 on the marriage certificate . he was born in Glasgow in 1854 , that's why she must have been born around 1855 in ormskirk . I can follow the thread after here , but still trying to establish family . Her farther was james Robinson a tailor by trade I have looked on the parish clerks for skelmersdale , ormskirk and that area but still haven't found her . Problem is there are lots of Robinson around the lathom area near ormskirk . so I am stuck now Any would be gratefully recieved . Thanks qwackers

I assume this is the family in 1881:
1881 census on ancestry
Court 2, Sandy Lane, Skelmersdale, Lancashire
William Grimshaw Head Mar 27 Coal Miner Scotland
Anne Do Wife Mar 26 Lancashire Ormskirk
Annie Do Daug 4 Scholar Do Wigan
Mary S Do Daug 2 mo do Skelmersdale
Richard Robinson Boarder Unm 18 Coal Miner Do Ormskirk

I bet Richard is Anne's brother.

So this looks like the Robinson family in 1871, but no Ann:
1871 census on ancestry
No 7 House, Aughton St, Ormskirk, Lancashire
James Robinson Head Mar 46 Tailor Lancashire Bolton
Jane Robinson Wife Mar 46 " Ormskirk
James Robinson Son Unmar 18 Blacksmith " "
Nancy Robinson Daughter " 16 Domestic Servant " "
John Robinson Son 13 Scholar " "
Richard Robinson Son 8 Do " "

Oops, Nancy is Ann, of course!

This is the Robinson family in 1861:
1861 census on ancestry
Church Street, Ormskirk, Lancashire
James Robinson Head Mar 36 Tailor Lancashire Bolton
Jane Do Wife Mar 36 Do Ormskirk
James Do Son 8 Scholar Do Do
Nancy Do Daur 7 Scholar Do Do
John Do Son 2 Do Do

So Ann / Nancy's birth should be about 1853-4. I'll have a look.

It looks as though her birth was registered as Nancy, since these Robinson birth regs from Lancashire BMD seem to fit with the children in the family, all Ormskirk sub-district, all with mother's maiden name Hale:
James 1851
Nancy 1853
William 1856
John 1858
Sarah 1861
Richard 1862.

And just to confirm this is the right family, James Robinson married Jane Hale at Our Lady & St Nicholas & St Anne, Liverpool, in 1850 (also from Lancashire BMD).

These are the details on Lancashire BMD for Nancy's birth certificate:

Lancashire Birth indexes for the years: 1853
Surname ROBINSON
Forename(s) Nancy
Sub-District Ormskirk
Registers At Preston
Mother's Maiden Name Hale

and this must be the corresponding entry in the GRO index:
Births Apr-Jun 1853
ROBINSON Nancy Ormskirk vol 8b page 486
Reference OK/7/41

Also, Lancashire Online Parish Clerks website has transcribed her baptism:
Baptism: 21 Aug 1853 St Peter and St Paul, Ormskirk, Lancashire, England
Nancy Robinson - [Child] of James Robinson & Jane
Abode: Ormskirk
Occupation: Tailor

Reading back through your old William Grimshaw thread, Ellen's birthplace is shown as Wigan Lancashire on the 1861 census. And the William Grimshaw (sr) / Ellen Calland marriage was 1844 at All Saints, Wigan. It also says on that old thread that Lancs Online Parish Clerks had transcribed that marriage and it was 11 Mar 1844 with Ellen age 21, spinster, of Ince, father William Calland, collier.

On the 1871 census Ellen's birthplace is also Wigan Lancashire. So I'm not sure why you're looking for her birth in Scotland?

Anyway, to answer your question, no, the child's birth cert won't show the parents' ages. But the marriages and the census entries suggest she was born about 1823. I'll have a quick look for a baptism before Dr Who starts...

Ah, this
1841 census on ancestry
must be the Calland family in 1841:
Britania Bridge, Ince, Wigan, Lancashire
William Calland 40 Coal Miner Y
Cicely Calland 35 Labourer Y
Ellen Do 15 Coal Miner Y
Mary Do 15 Do Do Y
Elizabeth Do 13 Do Drawer Y
Richard Do 10 Y
Thomas Do 6 Y
Margaret Do 2 Y

Ages were rounded down to a multiple of 5 on this census, so it doesn't mean that Ellen and Mary were twins.

I think the name Cicely is used later on in the Grimshaw family, isn't it? So they look like the right family. William Calland married Cicely Walker 31 Aug 1823 Warrington, but I can't see Ellen's baptism just at the moment. Back later...
