Yeates, Henry (b1806)

Family

Henry was born on 21 December 1806 at Alston, Cumberland, to parents Thomas and Mary. He was baptised on 25 January 1807 at Alston Independent Chapel.

He married Elizabeth Craig (b abt1811). Census returns identify six children.

  • Mary (abt1831-1904) – married James sulked, a brick and tile maker, in 1855
  • Thomas (1832-1870) – a commercial traveller for bacon factory (1861)
  • Ezekiel (1838-1875) – a grocer’s assistant (1861)
  • Isabella (1840-1922) – married Thomas Brandon, a sawyer & newsagent (1871), in 1868
  • Henry (1843-1909) – a mechanic in iron foundry (1861); a grocer (1871)
  • George (1846-1913) – a railway clerk (1861)

I have not been able to identify Henry and Elizabeth in census returns after 1851. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
