Anybody know where Ingham would be on the 1951 census?

My ancestor Betty Whitaker ( maiden name Smith) had parents Benjamin and Betty

The address of Ingham appears as one of the houses where some of the family lived, could it be a farm?

Try having a look at the pages either side to get an idea of where it was Hannah

:) Cockden is the previous one and I missed the occupation of the head of household, yes it says farmer with nine children all at home.

I suppose it is a ruin by now as I don't remember seeing it on any childhood walks.

Thanks Mel

I knew about it, but it is also mentioned in Roger Frost's book A Lancashire Township.

"Ingham's" can be found on the 1848 OS 6" map of the area:

http://maps.nls.uk/view/102343931

Zoom in on Haggate. Cockden is a little to the south-south-east and Ingham's is more of less due east of there.

:D Thanks for the map, found my Inghams.

It's a very useful map as well for other hunts.

There seem to be no end of helpful people on this website, name and it's found :wink:

In Barrett's Directory of Burnley 1879 and 1881 census--Kippax James, farmer, Batty Hole, which is next to Ingham House--he was my 3xgt grandfather. You get a good view of them on google maps

Hi Hannah,

There are lots of other maps available at http://maps.nls.uk too. Just click on the "find by place" link. You can zoom in on the map, locate a town or village using the gazetteer and select the map series. Then click one of the shaded rectangles to see what's available.

The one I gave you is from the OS six-inch series, 1848 edition. There are later editions in that series available, and some one-inch maps too.

Dave

Thank you Dave, I'm going to use that link a lot.

Full of info.I thought I knew but clearly didn't.

You are a mine of Info. It is nice to know that even so far away in Germany you are still part of us in Briercliffe.
