Married at Leicester in 1819, to Mary FIGG. Then to Wakefield, where 3 children baptised 1821-1824. (James, Elizabeth, Henry). Lived at Thornes, he was a Dyer. (His sons followed this trade in Bradford, Halifax, and Morley.) His wife (widow?) remarried in 1833 to Edward RYCROFT at Wakefield. I believe, therefore, that John died 1824-1833. Where? And who were his parents? Presumably died before 1841 census, so place of origin unknown.
