bullet  Notes:

The eldest son, James moved from Derbyshire to Horbury in Yorkshire where he was a clothier. It is not clear whether this meant he was a tailor (his brother Francis was a draper in the neigbouring town of Wakefield) or a weaver, the occupation of his brother John who had also moved to Horbury. James and John subsequently became gardeners, presumably a consequence of the industrialisation of the woollen industry at the beginning of the 19th Century - Fosters Mill at Horbury was destroyed by the Luddites in 1812. James was described as a 'Proprietor of house and land' when he died in 1857.

James married Ann Parker (qv) in 1799, and moved to her home town of Crigglestone around 1810. They had six children, who all married and had children. Their eldest daughter Jane (qv) married John Pitchforth (qv), a farm labourer. Their eldest son James was a plumber in Wakefield; their next daughter Ann married Benjamin Heptonstall, a carpenter from East Ardsley; their next son Francis was a carpenter in Clayton West; their youngest daughter Hannah married John Murgatroyd, a plumber in Leeds; and their youngest son Robert established a successful plumbing business in Halifax.
