Ellisons Yard Baxtergate Whitby - a Memory of Whitby.

I have been looking for Ellisons Yard in Baxtergate, the birth place of my grandmother, Mary Jane Boyes. I have been left Whitby for some 45 years now and have started to do my family tree. Gran was born in 1889 along with several other siblings. Her father's name was William Wright Boyes born 1861 and mother's name was Alice Boyes, nee Harland, born 1864. There are lots of Yards along Baxtergate, possibly, 12 to 15. About a quarter have no yard names and I can only assume that it is one of those. I would be very grateful for any help on locating the said Yard.
