red mail LARIMAN - - - not Shotto/Shotwell !!
In October '07 I asked for help with Sarah Shotto / Shotwell - since looking at the 1841 census I have realised I have the wrong Sarah !! It should be Sarah LARIMAN born about 1802/04 in Pott Shrigley or Mellor. Any help would be superb !! Thankyou.
red mail Shotto or Shotwell
This is how my gr. gr. grandmother is described in the parish records of St. Thomas a Becket church in Chapel-en-le-Frith when she married Abraham Yates in 1828.In the 1851 census she is aged 48 from Pott Shrigley, Cheshire - in the 1861 census she is aged 60 and from Mellor , Cheshire. Unfortunately she died before the 1871 census so I can't "choose" between the two ! Any help would be appreciated - thankyou.
