An old history of Brighouse seems to have a concentration of familiar names. Is it possible there is a thread that connects Brighouse and Wakefield, Walker, Holmes, Midgeley and Webster??

So here are the speculations

CONNECTIONS

Of Locations

Wakefield (in the lower Calder Valley)

At the start of 19th century Wakefield was a wealthy market town and inland port trading in wool and grain.[26] The Aire and Calder and Calder and Hebble Navigations and the Barnsley Canal were instrumental in the development of Wakefield as an important market for grain and more was sold here than at any other market in the north ...Road transport using turnpiked roads was important. Regular mail coaches departed to LeedsLondon, Manchester, York and Sheffield and the 'Strafford Arms' was an important coaching inn.[29] The railways arrived in Wakefield in 1840 when Kirkgate Station was built on the Manchester to Leeds line. Wikipedia

Brighouse on River Calder

The name Brighouse (or "Bridge House") originates from a building on (or close to) the bridge over the River Calder. In its early history, it was a hamlet of the nearby village of Rastrick....There was a river crossing called Snake Hill Ford across the Calder – believed to have formed part of the Roman route between Wakefield and Manchester. A wooden structure called Rastrick Bridge was recorded in 1275.

Wikipedia

By the beginning of the 18th century, the Aire and Calder Navigation had made the River Calder navigable as far upstream as Wakefield.

The aim of the Calder and Hebble Navigation was to extend navigation west (upstream) from Wakefield to Sowerby Bridge near Halifax.[1] ... First proposed in 1740, construction started in November 1759. ... By November 1764, the navigation was open as far as Brighouse, some 16 miles (26 km) from Wakefield.

This story sounds a lot like William's story. Is this Benjamin connected??

have an 1851 Leeds census index - there is a household with the following Holmes :- William 28 , Hannah 29, Samuel 15, Mary 6. This looks right with Joshua not yet born and ( brother ) Samuel the right age to go in the militia in 3 years time.-

This seems to fit with the 1854 "Pheasant " letter
which mentions Father ( Benjamin Snr) and Benjamin ( Jnr )

I think Lucy Walkers brother was Benjamin Landley Walker , Christened Wakefield 12 Dec 1828.
Is it him manufacturing lawn mowers in Sing Sing NY age 52 in the US 1880 census ??
The youngest child was born in CT in 1866

think Mary Metcalfe was Lucys mother

When I had a quick look last week -it seemed that Benjamin F Walker had returned to CT and there was a mention in the patents of Dies . Possibly this is where Samuel Webster fits in .

have identified some more of Lucys siblings as below

Benjamin Walker ( son of William and Susannah) ch 9 June 1794 married Mary Metcalfe 21 Mar 1814.
Children : - ( all Christened Wakefield )

Mary Ann 1815
Martin Metcalfe 1816
Elizabeth 1818
Emma 1821
William Wilson 1822
Lucy 1827
Benjamin Landley 1828


Also noticed in the 1901 Uk census , resident in Leeds,
born USA :-

Wesley Ellis Walker age 6
Ella Priscilla Walker age 9


Noted in your Australia corresp, the name - Evaline
This could be the same as the signature on the " Charley Cake park " postcard. 

William Webster's first wife was Mary Ann Holmes of Shelton. Even after her death, the Websters (especially my grandfather, Benjamin) maintained a continuing relationship with the entire family. 

Thanks to a wonderful find by my cousin Paul, we now have a great ad AND can identify the general location in Shelton.

AUSTRALIA -- LUCY WALKER HOLMES Other Family
McAlpin Walker connection Lucy Walker Holmes (mother in law to William Webster) stayed closed to Grandson-in-law Benjamin Webster and other members of the family. The fact that Lucy was a good correspondent and recorder of dates and connections has helped put many pieces together.
