Re: Moorhouse Yorkshire

In Reply to: Re: Moorhouse Yorkshire by Alan Young of 307

Hello Alan,
Thanks for the prompt and informative reply.
Your estimated birth date for Edward was very helpful.
I have now been able to confirm which Edward in my records is your one, and ..... surprise...;>)... he has brothers Miles and John and comes from Westmorland on the Nth Yorkshire border.
You will quickly see many familiar names in the following tree which contains the Edward I believe to be your ancestor. It begins with his father.

Notes for MILES MOORHOUSE:
1861 Census: [Partial] Turton, Lancashire
Miles Moorhouse              head       married       26       ?       b. Kendal, Westmorland
Esther M. Moorhouse       wife       married       28       ?       b. Gloucs
Julia Moorhouse              dau       unwed        4              b. Somerset
Walter Moorhouse              son               2              b. Lancs
Isabella Moorhouse       dau               1              b. Lancs
[Ancestry.com gives age of Miles as 36. This is one of 1000's of transcription errors found on this site]

1871 Census [partial]               Natland, Westmorland
Miles Moorehouse              head       married       39       ?              b. Kirkby Lonsdale,Wstmrlnd
Elizabeth Maria Moorehouse       ?       ?       41       ?              b. Kendal, Wstmrlnd
Walter Moorehouse       son              12       ?              b. Manchester, Lancs
John Edward Moorehouse       son              8       ?              b. Manchester, Lancs
Edith Moorehouse              dau              5       ?              b. Kendal, Wstmrlnd
Mary Jane Moorehouse       dau              1                     b. Kendal, Wstmrlnd
It appears that either the census enumerator or transcriber got Esther's first name wrong or: The 1871 Census has an Esther Morehouse placed in Gloucester, and born Gloucester, but born 1844 [therefore aged c 27, 10 years younger than she should be [transcrptn error??]]As there appears to be no Esther Moorhouse living with Miles, one might ask if Elizabeth Maria was a relative to Miles looking after the children while Esther visited home. A full copy showing relationships and occupations would help resolve this. Also researching the Esther in Gloucester further may help to expose the likelihood of an error.

I have not included any details of your Edward's family as this dialogue box is size limited and you have those details anyway. Despite the obvious clash with father's name I am 95% sure that this is your family. I have 111 Edward Moorhouses on file but only this one fits the criteria.
Cheers Mark. Contact me directly if you wish to further dialogue.
