Sarah Marsden

An elderly Sarah with my grandmother, Maud Annie
 Sarah was born in 1808 in Yorkshire. She appears to have been an only child.

She married William Lockwood in 1827. Looking at other family trees, a lot of people have her marked down as Sarah Sykes. Her father was called Marsden. One of her children had Sykes for a middle name. I couldn't trace her mother's middle name. Could it be that her parents weren't married?

The 1861 census makes it clear that Sarah's family were part of a larger household. The address is Silver Hill, Almondbury. The head of the household was a James Taylor, Merchant. It looks like Sarah and her family lived and worked on the estate of the Taylor family. Looking at the actual handwritten copy of the census, James Taylor lived at Fenay Hall.

She died in the Huddersfield area.
