Journal by bakern

I am trying to connect Ernest and Annie Baker from Castleford Yorks to the family of Henry Moore the sculptor. I believe his mother was a Baker making them cousins. Has anyone got info. on this please?

Henry Spencer Moore was born on 30 Jul 1898 in Castleford, West Yorkshire to Mary Baker & Raymond Spencer Moore. They married in 1885.

Raymond Spencer Moore was born in Owston, Lincoln, England believed to be of Irish origin

Mary was born in Burntwood, Staffordshire

If Ernest and Annie Baker's family originate from Staffordshire there may be a connection

I seem to be unable to find more info than that. Mary Baker , Burntwood is all. No parents or siblings, not even on a census. Any suggestions as to finding more?

1871 census
Over End, Burntwood Edial And Woodhouses County: Staffordshire

William 1829 Coal Miner Wyrley, Staffordshire
Mary 1827 Coal Miners Wife Walsall, Staffordshire
Jane 1849 ScholarWalsall, Staffordshire
Hannah 1855 Scholar Burntwood, Staffordshire
Mary 1858 Scholar Burntwood, Staffordshire
William 1860 Burntwood, Staffordshire
Lucy 1861 Burntwood, Staffordshire

This looks like Mary and her family in Staffordshire
Her father is a miner which perhaps why she ended up in Yorkshire
