William Henry Ashforth and Ellen Ashforth (née Ellen Pasley)

Published: May 12, 2005    Last modified: March 8, 2015

Using information obtained from the England and Wales Census 1901 I carried out some work on my ASHFORTH line.

The census for property 173 Cuthbert Bank Road, Sheffield, Yorkshire shows my gg grandmother Ellen ASHFORTH as head of the household but there is no record of my gg grandfather William Henry ASHFORTH. Online records for June 1889 show a record of death for a William Henry ASHFORTH but I have no documentary evidence to support this.

Likewise records from another search online suggest that Ellen ASHFORTH's maiden name may have been Ellen PASLEY, though again I cannot substantiate this.

Interestingly the England and Wales Census 1901 records my great grandfather William Henry ASHFORTH 28 years of age and his son William Henry ASHFORTH 1896-1916 (my great uncle) 4 years of age are listed as 'visitors'. My grandfather Ernest ASHFORTH 1905-1990 was born February 1905.

2008-01-05 Ellen PASLEY proved to be incorrect. Please click here to read this update.
