Married at Ferry Fryston on 15/01/1737. Richard was described as a yeoman of Whitkirk.

Booths in Ferrybridge
I am seeking information on my grandfather Charles Booth who was a glue manufacturer in Ferrybridge in the early 1900's. His wife's name was Mary & he had sons Harry & George, (my father born 1903, married Marian Gregg), & daughters Kitty & Dorothy, also an adopted daughter Edith who was a nurse in India for many years. He died in 1942, 6 months after my birth. He had a large "boneyard" in Ferrybridge where 5,000 ton shipments of bones were delivered from Argentina (to be made into glue), if that rings any bells. My mother's father, Alfred Gregg operated a glass-bottle manufacturing factory, I think at Knottingley, & lived in Scarborough. I migrated to Australia with my parents but not my sister Shirley), in 1955. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks, Mal
1461 history
I am writing a history of the Clapham family, which I can trace back to the 10th century. My ancestor, John Clapham , was Standard bearer for the 9th Lord Clifford who was killed on the eve of the Battle of Towton at Dintingdale after defending the crossing at Ferrybridge. Almost all of the Craven 500 with Lord Clifford were slain at Ferrybridge, but John C survived and was next heard of at The Battle of Edgecote in 1469.Any news of the events at Dintingdale, for my research, would be most welcome , and will be credited in my book.
