Winnifell Cumberland
I have updated this entry and found 'Winnifell'
Widow Ann SCATES in the 1851 census gives her place of birth as Cumberland Winnifell. Scates seems to be an E. Anglian name so she possibly moved south and married, or possibly married into the army.
Her death record agrees with census and date of birth c.1793
Any suggestions as to location of 'Winnifell'?

Thanks for comments from several people. Have now found that Ann had a daughter, Mary Ann, who married in Harmondsworth in 1841. On her certificate her father was named as Robert Scates but this was her step father who came into her life when she was 4 years old.
Later census records give her place of birth as Farlam, Cumberland and her father as William Scates and mother as Ann. Have not found a marriage yet but my gazetteer shows that Farlam is only one mile from Whinny Fell.
Have not found sources of Farlam as LDS images are locked
