Hi, just trying to tie up some loose ends...
Special thanks to Beryl Bass who found a few more generations for
me!

Question - what Family History Society would cover Womersley? It's
just
north of the Doncaster and District  Family History Society......

Any connections to the following?

John ELLIOTT chr 09 May 1806 Womersley s/o Joseph ELLIOTT and
Elizabeth
SELLERS (see further down)

siblings:
Ann chr ? 1804
Thomas chr 30 March 1798
Mary chr 19 March 1800
Elizabeth chr 03 Sept 1802
William chr 15 Feb 1809
Sarah chr 19 May 1811

John ELLIOTT married Susannah DAWSON on 11 Dec 1826 Campsall (they
are my 4x
greatgrandparents and emigrated to America in 1842! All of their
children
went with them)
Witnesses were Elias SENIOR and Richard ADDEMAN
(an IGI online search revealed that Elias SENIOR married Hannah
DAWSON in
1822 in Armthorpe. My Susannah DAWSON does indeed have a sister
named
Hannah, and Hannah would have been about 19 when this marriage
happened so
this seems like a reasonable connection)
 

Elizabeth SELLERS was christened July 1774 in Womersley, daugther
of Savile
SELLERS and Elizabeth BIRKS.
Savile was probably christenned August 1748 in Rothwell, son of
Savile
SELLERS.
Elizabeth BIRKS was christened October 1754 in Womersley d/o
William Birks

Any leads or information appreciated!!!

Thanks,

Hi,
Pleased to make your acquaintance!
I have recently found out that my 5x greatgrandmother is a Sellers.
Elizabeth Sellers was christened 1774 so I'm sure if she was even living in
1842. I haven't been able to check.

At least John Elliott emigrated to America in 1842 with is wife Susannah
and
children. Perhaps his brother Thomas went too - I did not find him buried
in
the parish they were living in 1841.
I have not been able to check census records yet

Elliott's settled in Winnebago, Illinois and some later in Buchanan County,
Iowa.
