Elizabeth Jones was Elizabeth Shepley on her marriage certificate yet she was Ann Higham's daughter. Also, Ann Higham is head of the household, described as Married, not Widow, so what happenned to Mr Shepley and Mr Higham? According to the One Name Shepley file, Elizabeth was illegitimate. In the 1871 Census Ann Higham was living in the house of her son-in-law Frederick Jones, and her married state was 'deserted, dependent on her children'. There were many male Highams of about the right age in Lancashire and no way of selecting the guilty man. Alan Ray-Jones
