Elizabeth SHAW married John Lankshear - 1838 - my great grand parents 

Elizabeth had some mixed up places in census

1851 Elizabeth Lankshear Wife Mar 36 Worstead Worcestershire
1861 Elizabeth           45 Oxfordshire
1871 Elizabeth LANKSHEER, wife, marr, 55, born Oxford Banbury

1816 ELIZABETH SHAW Christening and sister's Anne and Harriet

then my Grandfather 1851 Thomas Sylvester Lankshear age 3 with Aunt Harriet LONG (formerly SHAW)

which confirms the sisters and parents 

The SHAW's are from Banbury and this site is very good  Banburyshire: A website designed for you to share your family history with others and for other links see Oxfordshire Links

and here is some more on Henry and Harriet LONG (formerly SHAW)

also I went looking for Anne Shaw - sister of Elizabeth born Banbury 1817

Now back to the parents 

Looking for John Shaw of Banbury possibles - impossible to look for his wife until we have a marriage

Banbury list 3/2008 There is a baptism on 27 April 1800 at Banbury of a John SHAW, son George & Mary, Boat-builder.

So first sister was born 1816 which is an early marriage for someone born 1800 unless that is a late baptism

Looking for George and Mary Shaw a boat builder of Banburyshire and his son John
