Ann White

1774 - 1821

Father Thomas White
Mother Mary Clayton
Husband George Oldfield
Children Mary, Elizabeth, Ann, Thomas


Ann was born in Priestcliffe around the end of summer 1774(1)(20), the daughter of Thomas and Mary, and baptised at Taddington on 9th October (1). She had two older sisters - Elizabeth and Alice (2). Two years later her sister Sarah was born (3), followed by Mary two years after that (4), and Grace in early 1780 (5). Later that year Mary, Grace and Elizabeth all died within a few days of each other(6)(8), but the cause is unknown. Her youngest sister, also called Elizabeth (although she was actually baptised as Betty), was born in 1781 (9).

Her mother died in February 1783 (10), and her father promptly remarried Ellen Twigg from Winster 11), and Ann's only brother, Thomas, was born in October of the following year (12). However her stepmother died within a couple of months of Thomas's birth (13), and Thomas himself died a month after that (14).

Ann married George Oldfield of Taddington on 2nd April 1793 (15), and their first child, Mary, was born later that year (16). They had two more daughters, Elizabeth in 1797 (17), and Ann in 1802 (18), before their only son, Thomas, was born in 1804 (19).

Ann died, aged 46, in July 1821 (20). Her husband survived her by just over a year (21).
