MOORHOUSE, BAKE, ELY, et al. John Moorhouse was born in 1805 the youngest child of Samuel and Martha (Morrell) MOORHOUSE. His siblings were: Martha born c 1795, married Nathan BAKE;Ellen/Eleanor married John LOWCOCK; Mary married William ELY, Samuel married Ann BUCKLE and died 1831; Christiana never married; and a half-sister Susannah MORRELL who married William EWBANK, she died in 1818. John MOORHOUSE married Elizabeth BODDY in 1829 and they emigrated to America in 1832. However, John MOORHOUSE made six trips back to England to look after property that he inherited from his father, but could NOT sell per stipulation in his father's will. Upon his death it could then be divided among his children. Where is this property? In John MOORHOUSE's will it is described as "22 acres, known as the Clint Estate, near the Birstwith Station, Nidd Valley Railroad". The property included a house, barn, etc. Can anyone help? Thank you very, very much. Patricia

Roberts. I believe JT Roberts was my Great Uncle as I have discovered a short obituary possibly dated around 1947 and it states that he came to Bristwith in 1909 as the first chauffer of Capt C S Greenwood of Swarcliffe Hall. Does anyone have further information of any kind of him or his wife and family?

Can anybody tell me if a house which was built in the village in Aug 9 1902 is still standing. It appears to stand alone and is called "Coronation House" its quite a large stone house.

Interested in any connections to my ancestor John Crossley who was born in Birstwith in 1850. Parents were William and Elizabeth (nee Bake), brothers William, Robert and Nathan, and sisters Mary Ann and Martha Ellen.
