Thanks for the replies Martin.
From the ages, Isabella Longtoft (?b 1835) and Elizabeth Longtoft could be the sisters of my GG grandfather Ralph (b.1829).
With Ralph and Isabella POUNDER listed as their grandparents, I presume I am still missing the girls' mother, my GGG grandmother (also Isabella). Perhaps she had died??
The Matthew Longtoft you mentioned being a Linen Weaver in 1851 is maybe the same one I found listed as a draper in 1823 - my GGG grandfather. The age certainly fits and the occupations (at face value anyway) seem related. I'm presuming he was a widower by 1851 and his younger children were living with their maternal grandparents - also Ralph and Isabella to make it completely confusing!
I'll have to get into the English records at some stage - very new to this I'm afraid, but really appreciate the information, thank you. Good luck in your own POUNDER quest!
