Thanks Josie.

So the date and place are correct, but it's Elizabeth there and Betty in the census and children's baptisms.

Looks like James of the parish of Kirkheaton and Elizabeth of this parish (Kirkburton).

First child of Benjamin & Esther so marriage should be a bit before that but I can't see it.


Milley BARROWCLOUGH c. 9 Jul 1793 Wesleyan, Holmfirth, Yorkshire
Benjan. BARROWCLOUGH & Esther


From the 3rd child on it became BARRACLOUGH. :)

Thanks Josie.

I think I came across the name as ENGLAND somewhere. ???

If the date is right them Milley is not their first child or a late baptism after they moved. Not all 7 children that I have were baptised at same place.

I noticed the marriage above is a Hannah OXLEY. I will see if I can find a baptism. Might be able to decide which set of two possible parents for Betty is the right one. It may not be a sister.


Betty OXLEE c. 10 Feb 1787 Kirkburton, Yorkshire, England
David OXLEE

Betty OXLEE c. 7 Mar 1790 Kirkburton, Yorkshire, England
Richard OXLEE



Hannah OXLEY c. 16 FEB 1783 Kirkburton
Francis OXLEY

Hannah OXLEY c. 9 MAR 1794 Kirkheaton
Thos. OXLEY
