Elizabeth Burton born circa 1837 in Grewelthorpe married Wiiliam ATKINSON on 14th May 1870 in the Parish Church at Ripon. She was the daughter of a Henry Burton, shoemaker, looking at census records I feel this is the daughter of Henry BURNET[sic] born abt 1804 in Grewelthorpe and Mary Ascough born abt 1808 in Grewelthorpe.
