Facts and Events
There is 1 vital record available on MyHeritage for Eleanor Walker, including birth records, marriage records, and death records. Vital records are historical records that are typically recorded around the actual time of the event, which means they are likely accurate. Vital records include information like the event date and place, and the person's occupation and residence. Vital records also often include information about the person's relatives. For example, birth and marriage records include names of parents and divorce records list the names of children.
White 1902 identifies Eleanor as a daughter Alexander I of Wigton Scotland. She provides little, if any, additional data about her, noting only that she came to America with her brothers Alexander and John, in the household of their uncle John Walker II. Marriage records for an Alexander Walker and Jennet Cowan, and subsequent christening records in Wigtonshire at about the right time are sometimes cited as evidence that Eleanor's correct name is "Helen". It is certainly possible that "Helen" could have been corrupted to "Elleanor" as given in White 1902, but additional evidence is needed to support this view.
