Yes - and there's more.
Thing is tho I got struck down with Gloria's complaint. Went out to look at the Habergham records and came back with St Peter's instead :?

I'm not at home so the tree I'm looking at is not as up to date as my proper one. I have Thomas, (? - 1845), father of John (1815), Thomas (1817) etc. His wife on this tree is Sally (unknown) & I don't know right now whether I managed to tie up this Thomas & Sally with the one on the St Peter's records.

ps sorry, I didn't answer your question. I don't have Thomas on 1841 and if he's the one I think he is, he was dead by 1851.
I think this is his death:
Lancashire Death indexes for the years: 1845

LEVER Thomas aged 68 Burnley
Records at Preston Reference BU/10/59

This is the same family

On my tree I have Thomas LEAVER married Nancy Thornton, 1797 at St. Peters. Nancy died 1812 (no date or place). Thomas Leaver married Sally Whitaker, 7 March 1815 at St. Peter’s. According to my tree Sally died 1860 (No date or place, which indicates I got this from someone else I have not been able to prove it) and Thomas died at Banks in Briercliffe, Dec 1845.

On the parish records (on the site), there is a ?ally Leaver of Banks, Briercliffe who was buried at Haggate, 19 april 1839 (I wonder if this is our Sally?)

Thomas Leaver of Banks, Briercliffe was buried 24 Dec 1845 at Haggate

Nancy Leaver buried 17 August 1813 at Haggate and Nanny Leaver buried 30 May 1812 at Haggate (I wonder if either of these are our Nancy?)

I've checked my proper tree. It says the same as yours (what a coincidence!) re Thomas and his 2 wives.
I've found a candidate for Sally in 1851:

HO107; Piece: 2251; Folio: 101 page 9
Banks, Briercliffe
Sarah Leaver, Head, Widow, 66yrs, Cotton, b. Briercliffe
Thomas Leaver, Grandson, unm, 25, power loom weaver cotton. b. Briercliffe

Thomas (1777) had a grandson Thomas via James - child of his first marriage. So in truth if this is our Sarah, then the Thomas (1826) would be her step-grandson

There's a Sarah Leaver death in 1860 at Haslingden (2nd qr) Volume: 8e Page: 71. That may be where the 1860 on the tree came from. I'm not convinced as it's a long way for an old lady to go to die. I don't think it's one of my contributions as I usually annotate my facts with sources.
