Hi It has been suggested to me that my ancestor Aaron Rushforth was born in Huddersfield 1839 to 1840. I am struggling to find any record of him before his marriage in St Peters Leeds in 1860, when he married Elizabeth Kelly. His father is given as William Rushforth but an Elizabeth Rushforth signed the certificate. Elizabeth Kellys father is given as Rupert Kelly but the second person appears to be Benjamin White
I’ve had a quick look and census suggests Aaron was born in leeds, looking on ancestry I found a baptism which could be him.
Horbury, St Peter and St Leonard Yorkshire England
born 6 June 1840 baptised 21 Feb 1845
Aaron son of William and Mary Rushworth of Horbury miner
there were also entries on the same day for his siblings Thomas born 18 Jul 1838 and Martha born 18 Nov 1843.
This seems to fit with the details on his marriage detailing his father as being William Rushworth a miner.
Hope this helps
