  General Notes:

Sarah Heywood is with Andrew and Elizabeth Mellor in 1851. It seems likely that Andrew is related to Hugh Mellor husband of Sarah Turton based on birthplace and occupation but can find no evidence of Andrew's birth or marriage.

This seems even more likely considering that Andrew and Elizabeth's first child was named Hugh (second Dinah)
