Descendants of my great grand aunt Sarah ALLEN 1862-1943 are linked to the north Lincolnshire villages of Owston Ferry and West Butterwick. This area, the most north-westerly part of Lincolnshire, is more commonly known as the Isle of Axholme, due to it's location between the rivers Trent, Nidd and Old Don.

While researching my previous 2 posts re: Zillah ALLEN, I came across this record (which as it turns out, I already have) from the England and Wales Census 1891. It records Daniel JACKLIN 1862-1953 and Ziller JACKLIN (née ALLEN) 1858-1949 living at Aston-cum-Aughton so I decided to browse through some of the other households in the same area with a hunch that other members of the family may have relocated to the same area in order to find work in the coal mines. I eventually found this entry:
FHJ Ref: 013
Census: England and Wales Census 1891
Household: Jesse Butroid
