Just spent 20 delightful minutes trying to make sense of this. I've transcribed it as well as I can decipher.....:
1891 Burnley Ed 62 piece 3371 Fol147 p14
....? Haggate

Mary Leaver Head single 47 Cotton weaver b Briercliffe
Joseph Emmott mother s 21 " " beamer " "
Alice Ann " " niece s 9 scholar " "
Thomas " " mother wid 36 Stone mason " "
James " " son s ?? Scholar " "
Mary Ellen " " daur s 8 " " b Nelson
Annie " " daur s 5 " " b Briercliffe
Moses Greenwood Moth in Law Wid 36 Cotton weaver " "
Margaret Ann " " daur s 6 Scholar " "
Ellen Ann " " daur s 5 Scholar " "
John Thomas " " son s 3 " "


(It's quite possible I've added to the errors - my eyes were nearly crossed copying it out! Do you think they left the enumerator with a headache? or did he leave them with one?

:lol:

I read your mothers (& mother in law) as Brother. The writing is dreadful but I do see Br rather than M.

The joys of census...and we wonder why we can't find who we are looking for. What hope do the transcribers have!

Actually, "brother" was what I'd been hoping to see when I first looked at the image - couldn't manage to see it, though, myself.
