I am looking for information on a lady named Elizabeth Blakiston (or Blaxton) who is probably related to the wealthy Blakiston family of Gibside and Shield Row in County Durham. She probably lived in the nearby Tanfield Manor in reduced circumstances and by 1828 she was using her home as an inn where she was landlady. Many thanks.
