There don't seem to be many Westerfores, Westerfords, Westifords etc. around, though! There is an Edward Westerford who got married a couple of times, and there is a couple called John and Mary Ann Westiford who had a son William baptised 16 Oct 1826 at St Leonard Shoreditch, abode New Inn Yard, weaver, who might be connected to Ann Mary, but I can't see Ann Mary's baptism at the moment.

It doesn't help that sites such as ancestry and FamilySearch treat Ann Mary as interchangeable with Mary Ann!

Thanks for all your help Kiterunner.

I do believe that is the marriage of my William Horton but don't know how to conclusively prove that I only wish they had put the men's occupations on those Banns in those days would have made life a bit easier for us family historians

Although that 1841 I do think it's them but again it says Mary not Ann or Ann Mary and William has Weaver I expect the enumerator didn't pay enough attention to what was said to him. All the children's names are right it seems Harriet Amelia didn't like Harriet

And the name Westerfo.... (not sure of the last bit) is a little unsual I thought Wingfield was bad enough but that has turned out a little easier now.

New Inn Yard pops up everywhere in both my family history and OH's I imagine it was only a little cobbled street but it seems a lot of people went through there over the years

I'm sure it must be the right marriage. Ideally you would find a will of one of Ann Mary Westerfore / Westerford's relatives that mentioned her under her married name and gave her husband's occupation, residence, and / or names of some of her children, to confirm it was the same family.

I'm not sure whether Amelia and Harriet are the same person or two different people. Harriet doesn't have an Amelia in her name on her baptism, does she?

I don't know why now I think Harriet and Amelia are the same person there is a reason but I've forgotten!

I'm sure there was something I saw documentation wise!

Amelia born in Lancashire again. I thought it was a mistake on the 1851!

Found the pallot's entry for William and Ann's marriage

http://search.ancestry.co.uk/iexec?h...c=&pid=1603910

Transcribed as Westerford but it looks more like Westerforr...

I think the last letter on the Pallot's entry is an E - Westerfore - It's written like a backward 3 (sort of!)
