Maureen, do you have census details for this family? The one below cannot be right as they have a daughter, but it is the only one I can find in the Habergham (Lower House) area of Burnley.

1851 Census – HO107; Piece: 2252; Folio: 367; Page: 22
29 Habergham, Habergham All Saints, Burnley
Thos. Pilkington, Head, Mar, 26yrs, Labourer to Engineman, b. Clayton
Sarah Pilkington, Wife, 26yrs, Power Loom Weaver, b. Habergham
Ellen Pilkington, Daughter, 6yrs, Scholar, b. Habergham

It is the right one Kris. The child was born before the marriage.
Thomas Pilkington died (1856-ish, we have a record of his burial at Burnley somewhere) and then in 1860 Sarah Pilkington (formerly Moore) married John Riley.

On the 1861 census Joseph appears with John & Sarah Riley at Old Laund Booth. RG9; Piece: 3082; Folio: 47; Page: 8. The daughter (from memory) is shown on 1861 as Ellen Moore.

This is where I lose track of Joseph until he marries Mary Phillips. By 1871 John Riley was dead and Sarah was living in Burnley as a servant.

I'd check Ancestry again but right now I'm going through 33 districts of Chorlton-on-Medlock one page at a time - looking for my missing Thomas & William Tickle. It's such a horrible job I daren't stop.
