The Enos Challenge

I am aware that a number of people may have drawn a blank in finding the parents of Enos Smithson of Langthorpe (born 1779).

So, here’s the challenge – has anyone successfully connected Enos to his parents?

Here’s what we know of Enos:

Census data shows him to be born about 1779 in Langthorpe. 1841 census shows him as an Agricultural Labourer in Cundall as does the 1851 census. The 1861 census shows him in Ripon workhouse. Death indexes show his death Qtr 1 1864.

He married Susannah Dawson (b1785, Kirkby Hill) on 31 May 1806 at Cundall. Susannah’s parents were Thomas Dawson and Alice Wiseman and Alice’s parents were William Wiseman and Esther Pick.

The children of Enos and Susannah were:

Enos – 1808 to 1874
William – 1810 to 1886
Thomas – 1811 to 1871
John – 1817 to 1890
Samuel – 1818 to 1879
Alice – 1821 to 1888
Mary – 1823 to ?
Mark – 1828 to 1887

Come on, where does Enos fit in?
