Elizabeth was the eldest sister (1709- 1783) of James Ainscough (1711-1782), Yeoman farmer of Pemberton House Mawdesley and James was my GGGGGG grandad...which makes Elizabeth a very GREAT auntie!

At some point Henry and Elizabeth decided to move from Mawdesley, Lancashire to Holme on Spalding Moor in East Yorkshire.
Inscription on Elizabeth's headstone reads:
"Lieth Interd y Body of Eliz th Anderton ye Wife of Henry Anderton who departed this Life August 21st 1783"The headstone was a lucky find, only 7 miles up the road from where I live, in the ancient churchyard of All Saints.
