ASHTON and MATTHEW families (Yorkshire)

One of the current 'dead ends' in my family tree is Kitty (or Catherine) ASHTON.

Kitty was born in Yorkshire, England, probably in the late 1770s. She married Peter MATTHEW in 1803, and died sometime after the 1861 census. Associated surnames include HUDSON and LEAPER, and perhaps BOWER, HARWOOD and MOUNTAIN. Possible spelling variants for her married name include MATHEW, MATHEWS and MATTHEWS.

If you have an interest in (or references to) any of those surnames in Barton-le-Willows, Crambe, Kirby Misperton or Swinton (but which Swinton?!), I'd love to swap information with you. For more details see Jottings, Journeys and Genealogy.
