Morning all,

Attached is a screen shot from the 1891 Cennsus. I am struggling to work out the birth place surrounded by the red crosses. To me it looks like "Lines Appleby" but I cant find a place with that name. The first word is 'Lines or Limes' i think, so, can anyone help please?

Looking at the lines above, it seems to say

Yorks, Darnall, and ditto, Sheffield, so is the line 

LINCS, APPLEBY.

There is a village of that name near Scunthorpe.

Oh well done both many thanks:

Appleby is a small village and civil parish in North Lincolnshire, England. The village is situated about 3 miles north-east from Scunthorpe, and on the B1207 road. Returns in the 2001 Census show an Appleby parish population of 597, reducing slightly to 587 at the 2011 census

Well done Lemmy. Of course, once someone has pointed it out, it's obvious!

I do like the categories at the top right, subsequently used by generations of football fans to describe the referee.
