Ellen Bennett was born in Coundon County Durham in 1880. Her father Matthew Bennett was born in Scholes and his fdather William ran the Whitesmith's Arms on Warrington Lane for a spell. Ellen married William Eccleston in 1900 but in 1915 she abandoned him and her five children the youngest of which was just 5 months old. I don't know the name of the man with her and would be delighted if anyone has any more info on the two of them.
