Hi Elaine. So it looks that I was wrong and it's Henry. Many thanks.
I believe Harry was an affectionate name for Henry and probably vice versa.
Sorry still little unsure...GRO Index does say Ernest Walter Ibbotson b 1882 mother was a Wood (Emma Wood) over to the marriage on the left....HARRY Ibbotson,aged 20, carter, 3 Langsett Rd married Emma Wood 24 February 1880, with his father as Henry Ibbotson (Inn Keeper)
David don't ponder anymore.LOL
Look at it this way.......
Two Henry Ibbotsons in a household confusing so the son is called Harry an abbreviation of Henry.
