Could someone please lookup the household details of a Jane Lewis reportedly b~1823 in Lyth. She was a Nurse and at the time of her marriage in 1875 in Ormskirk was living in West Lancashire.

Someone found her for me in the 1871 Census living @ 70 Woodville Terrace, Everton, Liverpool - RG10 P/3823 F/113 P/39

TIA - HiFly

Thanks Keyboard86 for your kind lookup - the info re birthyear started an alarm bell ringing - so I went back to what I do know - and realised that the 1871 reference was supplied in good faith but may be wrong.

So rather than just the BMD marriage reference I looked up the marriage via the Lancs OPC the marriage - and lo and behold found this :

Marriage: 31 Mar 1875 St Peter and St Paul, Ormskirk, Lancashire, England - Page 167, Entry 334
John Kennerley - full Farmer Widower of Scarisbrick Jane Lewis - full Spinster of Scarisbrick
Groom's Father: Leonard Kennerley, deceased Bride's Father: Thomas Lewis, Farmer
Witness: John C???ley; William Neale Married by Licence by: J Phillips - Curate

Ok so they mistranscribed Kennedy to Kennerley - but her father was a Thomas Lewis ! On the 1881 [RG11/3754 f/6 p/8] her birthplace is stated to be Lytto, Westmoreland. Couldn't find a Lytto placename in Westmoreland and suspect that another researcher changed Lytto to Lyth (near Cartmel Fells). I noted that on IGI there is a Jane Lewis - Baptised 8 Mar 1831 Crosthwaite & Lyth, Westmorland, d.o. a Thomas & Isabella but I don't think its the same family - seems a long way from Heversham / Halforth.
