Olive Nutter, 24 years, Weaver. B. Lancs
Abraham Leaver, 2 years, b. Lancs

When – 3 February 1845

I've been trying to find him but no real success yet. I wonder whether her parents were already dead by 1841 and that was why she was living with Olive?
I'm also looking for a Benjamin Smith/ Leaver marriage in case her parents were married after she was born. If that happened tho it would likely be before 1837.

Just found one in 1841 but having to dash out so can't follow it up :

Lower Saxified

Benjamin Smith 35 farmer
Mary Smith 30
Robert Smith 10
