I'm looking for Bagnall family, who in 1851 census claim they are from Carlisle. There is no trace of them at the 1841 census or 1861. Ellen & her sisters Ann & Mary are living in the same house in 1871 (with my great great GrandfatherGeorge Oliphant + his sister Charlotte) In 1881 Ellen is living in a house where my great grandfather John Oliphant is a little boy (his father is living in Newcastle & mother is in hospital).
I am fascinated why this woman would take care of two generations of my family, who are the hardest for me to track down, despite having a distinctive name.
Any help grateful
