Default Elizabeth Wilkinson, later Elizabeth Shaw OH's FMMFM

OH's father's mother's mother's father's mother

Name - "official" name and what they were known as
Elizabeth (Betty) Wilkinson

Date and place of birth
c. 1796

Names of parents
John and Mary? Wilkinson

Date and place of baptism - if applicable
22 May 1796
Otley Yorkshire

This is the baptism for "Betty" Wilkinson, father John Wilkinson

These are important as I found a brother and sister for Betty/Elizabeth as I researched as
John born 10th Feb 1805 baptised 16 Jun 1805 Otley Father John
Sarah born c. 1802 Can't find baptism on IGI

This is John Wilkinson with his mother Mary, sister Sarah and nephews (sons of Mathew and Betty) in 1841:

John Wilkinson 30 Gardener Yes
Mary 65 Ind Yes
Sarah 35 Ind Yes
Hiram Shaw 15 Gardener Yes

Details of each of his or her marriages - if any
To Mathew Shaw
19 Mar 1821 Otley

Hiram chr. 24 Feb 1822 St Mary Barnsley
Joseph Wilkinson chr. 1 Mar 1826 Otley

Probably an earlier child called Joseph Wilkinson Shaw, because there is a burial for a child of this name on 19 Jan 1825 at Otley.
I haven't found a baptism for this child.
