t 



IN presenting to the Subaeribera this volume of Registers, I feel 
tliat my work in connection witli writing the history of my native 
town is now completed. So long as these interesting records remained 
unpublished, the index appeared to be wanting to all that had pre- 
viously been written concerning the place. 

I feel therefore, that it is unnecessary for me to make any apology 
for this my last effort, or dwell at any length upon the valne of manu- 
script records, such as the TopclifFe and Jlorley Registers. Suffice it 
to say, that I have no doubt this worli will be found to possess a special 
interest, not only for the inhabitants of Morley, but also for the anti- 
quary and the genealogist, who may not be so nearly allied to the 
families of whom the volume is a record. 

I have printed the Registers in their entirety (the original spelling 
of the names being retained), because to have eliminated, or altered 
what I might have deemed to be useless and uninteresting matter, 
would, in all probability, have destroyed the value of the book for 
historical and genealogical purposes. It seems likely that many of 
the descendants of "the rude forefathers of the hamlet," whose 
names are to be found in this volume, will in the future (as some have 
already done in the past, and the present), attain to positions of rank 
and distinction, and therefore I should be doing such persona an in- 
justice, had I limited my entries to those families, who have already 
attained a recognised social position. 

The 



PREFACE. 



The Registers here printed have more than a local interest, for the 
Topcliffe Congregational Church was the first of that denomination* 
established in the West Riding of Yorkshire, and included amongst 
its members many distinguished persons, such as Mr. John Pickering, v 

(son of Captain Thomas Pickering, an old Republican Officer, pro- ^ 

genitor of Lords Eure), who gave them the Chapel, Christopher 
Nesse, M.A., Mr. Gamaliel Marsden a friend of Thoresby, Madame 
Elizabeth Rokeby, Mr. Isaac Balme, Mrs. Spencer, Naylor the mad 
quaker, and others. Mr. Pickering also gave the land at Tingley for 
the burial ground. The first minister at Topcliffe was Mr. Marshall, 
who also held the living at Woodchurch, from which he was ejected 
in 16G2. 

The Old Chapel, Morley, has a history, unique and unequalled 
amongst the churches of the West Riding. For more than seven 
hundred years, it was the only place for worship, or burial of the 
dead, for Morley and the surrounding villages, and during that long 
period, the Chapel was occupied at various times by Papists, Pro- ^ 

testants, and Protestant Dissenters. Its graveyard, in all probability, 
has for all these centuries, been the resting place for the remains of 
the inhabitants of Morley, Churwell, Gildersome, and other hamlets, 
hence the Register, which commences in the 18th century, contains 
the names of many generations of the Scatcherds, Dawsons, Websters, . 
Wetherills, Asquiths, Thompsons, and other important families. 

It only remains for me to express my obligations to my friend, Mr. 
J. HoRSFALL Turner, for his great kindness in undertaking the responsi- 
bility of printing the volume, and my sincere thanks to the authorities 
of St. Mary's Congregational Church, for the readiness with which 
they acceded to my request for permission to transcribe the Registers.

T0P.CL1FFE, AND MORLEY I[EGISTERS. 



small body of Congregational Disaenters, or Iiide- 
ndents, was tbe first Congregational Church established 
the West Riding, and owed its origin to a Mr. Chris- 
pher Marshall, who, whilst establishing this Church 
Independent principIeB, occupied the post of Minister 
the Parish Church of Woodchurch [Woodkirk] close 
, from which he was ejected in 1662. After being 
icted, he lived privately among his people, in a house 
his own; Mr. Marshall was bom in Lincolnshire, 
».,d "educated partly in Cambridge, and partly under 
Mr. Cotton, at Boston, in New England." During his connection 
with the Church at Topcliffe, he wa.'?, for a short time, " injpriBoned, 
with several of his brethren, on account of a plot, but came clear off, 
there being notliing found against him." This would, in all prob- 
ability, have reference to f he Famley Wood plot, to which many of the 
ejected ministers in this neighbourhood were pri^^. After his ejection, 
it is probable tliat he preached to his flock in secret, and though the 
Five Mile Act drove him to Horbury, yet the meetings of hie society 
were not suspended, and Marshall Btill met with them privately. 
During the ministry of Mr, Marshall, many disliinguished persons 
were received into communion. In 1654, the year ^er the Church

was formed, mention is made of Brother Gledhill* and Brother 
Hargreave, both of whom were sent, subsequently, to Leeds, in 1672, 
as a deputation, to recognize and congratulate the new Church, just 
formed in that town, under the pastorship of the Rev. Christopher 
Nesse, M.A. In 1670, the Rev. David Noble, M.A. joined the Church. 
This eminent minister, and schoolmaster, was born at Inverness, in 
Scotland, and educated at Christ College, Cambridge. His classical 
attainments were considerable. He taught a School in Morley, and 
amongst his pupils were the two sons of Oliver Hey wood, who boarded 
in the house of Thomas Dawson, probably father of the minister at 
the Old Chapel. To this school, Joseph Lister, of Bradford, in 1673, 
sent his son, and in Mr. Lister's autobiography we read, ** I was then 
at a loss, but I went to Morley, where Mr. Noble taught school at 
that time, and put my son (David) under his care, who was a diligent, 
faithful man. There my son profited much, and was soon fitted for 
University learning, but not having convenience of disposing of him at 
that time, he stayed another year and learned logic with him, in 
which he was a good proficient." About 1678, Mr. Noble became 
Chaplain to — Woolhouse, Esq., of Glapwell, Derbyshire, and preached 
there and at Sutton. He died at Chapel Fold, November 26th, 1709, 
and was buried at Dewsbury. In 1661, Christopher Nesse, M.A. was 
admitted into Church-fellowship, and in the same year, Josiah Holds- 
worth. Nesse was born, December 26tli, 1621, at North Cave, in the 
East Riding, where his family had resided a considerable time, and 
were possessed of considerable wealth as shewn by the Wills at York. 
He was educated at Cambridge, after which, he retired into the 
Country, during the Civil War, and preached for a while at Cliffe 
Chapel. He was at that time under the care of his Uncle, then Vicar 
of North Cave. He subsequently accepted a call to Holderness, and 
from thence removed to Beverley, where he kept a school, and preached 
occasionally. His next station appears to have been Collingham, 
the living of which was presented to him by Dr. Winter. In the 
course of a few years, he was called to Leeds, where he laboured 
with great success, as Lecturer at the Parish Church. He remained 
here during the Vicariate of Rev. William Styles, till 1660, and subse- 
quently during that of Dr. Lake, afterwards Bishop of Chichester, 
with whose High Church opinions, Nesse by no means agreed. Miall 
tells us that Nesse was at this time *' avowedly an Independent in 
principle, having joined the Congregational Church at Topcliffe in the 
year 1661 ; and the difference between his own teachings and that 
of Dr.Lake, became very marked and notorious. The Duke of Buck- 
ingham attempted to flatter him into Conformity after 1662, but Nesse 
was too high-minded to be cajoled. Wh^n the Five Mile Act was 



• In a Funeral Sermon, published by Dr. Harris, 1719, for Mrs. Bathsheba Barker, 
Gledhill's daughter, he speaks of the eminent piety and holiness of this Gledhill. 
His daughter, he says, felt it a singular honour to have descended from so good 
a man.

passed he retreated to Clayton, and afterwards preached for a time at 
M^orley, though that place was withm the prohibited distance." In 
1672, Nesse formed a religious society in Water Lane, Leeds, and 
became its first pastor. But when the persecution, which had been 
intermitted, was revived, Nesse became especially the object of attack. 
Seeing no probability of tranquility, he removed to London in 1675, 
where he preached to a congregation in Salisbury Court, Fleet Street. 
His death took place on December 26th, 1705, in the 84th year of his 
age, and he was buried in Bunhill Fields. 

Josiah Holds worth, who joined the Church at Topcliffe, with Mr. 
Nesse, became the first pastor at Upper Chapel, Heckinondwike. He 
was educated at Cambridge, ejected from Sutton, and became chaplain 
to Sir Richard Houghton, of Houghton Tower, Lancashire, then an 
asylum for persecuted ministers. As he became a member at Top- 
cliffe in 1661, it is likely that he was ejected at the Restoration. In 
1672, he went to reside at Heckmondwike, and received his dismissal 
from the Church at Topcliffe, August 24th, 1674, though he often 
preached at the old place, when it was without a pastor. Mr. 
Holdsworth died in 1685, aged 46. Calamy speaks of him as ** a man 
of great piety, sincerity, strictness, and industry for the good of souls, 
and blessed with abundance of success. He was much beloved, and 
is still spoken of with great respect." He was buried at Topcliffe, 
but his tombstone exists no longer. 

James Naylor, the Quaker enthusiast, was originally a member of the 
Church at Topcliffe. He was brought before the Church on a charge 
of adultery. The meeting was held at Hague Hall, in the room called 
the Lord's parlour. Naylor went afterwards to London, and joined 
the Baptist Church of which Hanserd Knollys was minister, whence 
he was again expelled. 

The Church at Topcliffe was largely assisted by the ministrations 
of Oliver Heywood, B.A. as appears from the following entry in his 
** Event Book" under date **Munday, June 23, 1673. Some friends 
were with me from about Woodkirk upon a speciall occasion and John 
Koppindall told me before them all, and sd he was ingaged to declare 
it for my incouragemt that most of the persons that had been ad- 
mitted into Mr. Marshalls Church of late years, delivering their 
experiences, haue confessed that their first work was by my ministry, 
where they haue had occasion to hear me, in this sad and silencing 
time, and indeed I confesse god drew me out to preach abroad at 
Hunslet, Bramley, Farsley, Pudsey, Morley, Idle — in publick, and 
multitudes of people flockt and were affected, and I now hear of some 
fruit. I hope there is more yet not discovered." 

In 1685, the society at Topcliffe was an important one, the heads 
of the families being about thirty in number, the chief of whom, were 
Madame EUzabeth Rokeby, Captain John Pickering, Mrs. Spencer, Mr. 
Isaac Baline, Mr. John Wordsworth, and a Mr. Samuel Craister. 
The last-named was no credit to the body, for we find the following 



4 TOPGLIFFE GHAP^L. 

entry respecting him: — "Oct. Slst, 1677, Mr. Samuel Craister, excom- 
municated for drunkenness at Selby, Leeds, Pudsey — an iniquity too 
frequent with him." * 

The Church met for worship in Topchffe Hall, then inhabited by 
Captain Pickering, a person in whom Cromwell expressed gi'eat 
confidence. **No part of the Topcliflfe Chapel now remains except a 
heavy oak door, which Mr. A. D. Barker, the farmer there, had in 
1868. t The hall was at one time the residence of Sir John Topcliffe, 
Chief Justice of Ireland, and Master of the Mint, in the reigns of 
Henry VII. and VIII., who was interred at West Ardsley Church, near 
Leeds. In the middle of the chancel floor of West Ardsley, Wood- 
church, or Woodkirk, lies the tomb of Sir John Topcliffe, bearing an 
inscription round the edges, and a large carved cross in the centre, 
within which were the letters I.H.C. The cross is erected on five 
steps, and is not defaced ; but much of the inscription has become 
illegible. We are indebted, first to Dr. Whitaker, and later to Mr. 
ScATCHERD for preserving the words of this most interesting tomb. Sir 
John was a notable man in his time, being Chief Justice of the King's 
Bench, Master of the Mint, and a high officer in the households of 
Kings Henry VII. and VIII. He resided in his own house at Top- 
cliffe, in those reigns, and probably in the reign of Richard III. 
Much of his great house has disappeared ; much also remains, but 
no bed as in Mr. Scatcherd's time, nor anything that can be 
immediately connected with the Chief Justice. He died there in 1613 
or 1514. Dr. Whitaker and Mr. Scatcherd give these dates respect- 
ively. The slab covering his grave measures 6ft. 9in. by 3ft. 2in. 
Mr. Scatcherd says it was almost perfect in his time (1830), and 
that the following was the inscription : — " Orate pro anima Johannis 
Topcliffe, quondam Capitalis Justiciarii Domini Regis Henrici VII. 
et VIII., in Hibemia, item niagistri monetaB, qui quidem obiit xii. die 
Decembris, Anno Domini MCCCCCXII : cujus animae propicietur 
Deus." Dr. Whitaker's reading differs slightly, he only giving the 
abbreviations of several words. In the absence of this inscription, 
it would be almost impossible to make out that this was Sir John 
Topcliffe' s tomb. The chancel has been rebuilt over it ; and doubtless 
the workmen would do their work upon it, regardless of the injury 
they were committing. His daughter and heiress, Rose, was married 
in 1512, to Richard Bunny, of Bunny Hall, near Wakefield, who was 
buried in Wakefield Parish Church in 1585, near Rose, his late wife. 

* On Lord's day night, Sep. 16, 1678, I and my wife were all night at Willm 
Wadsworths at Alverthorp, he came home from Topcliife, and in onr discourse, we 
fell into a debate concerning church matters, they told me that 4 or 5 were excom- 
municated out of that church for scandall, Marmadnke Reiner (an ancient 
member), Mr. Sam. Craister, Thomas Arundel, etc. — Ueywood^i Diaries^ (Turner)

TINGLEY BUBIAL GROUND. 5 

From 1681 until 1684, the pulpit at Topcliffe was occupied by Mr. 
Holdsworth, Mr. Jollie, and other ejected ministers. In the Sessions 
Bolls, Heywood's Noncon, Rettery (Turner,) under date July 1689, 
Leeds, we find that "A congregation or assembly of Protestant 
subjects dissenting from the Church of England doe hold their meeting 
for religious worship on the Lords dayes in Toplife Hall, Woodkirk, 
and they hold other occasional meetings at J. Pickerings house at 
Tingley." " Jo Pickering, Thomas Atkinson." 

From 1684 to 1709, Mr. Thomas Elston was the pastor, when he 
was succeeded in his office by supphes from the ranks of the ejected 
ministers, until 1714, when Mr. Riley was pastor, and remained until 
1727. At this period he was succeeded by a Mr. Lax who remained 
until 1786, and was, we beUeve, the last minister. In the last- 
named year, the Chapel at Topcliffe was converted into a dwelling- 
house, and a meeting house was built on the Upper Green, at Leefair. 
Topcliffe at that time was but sparsely inhabited, and the congre- 
gation at the chapel, as well as the funds for carrying on the work, 
had for many years been mainly supplied by the inhabitants of Morley, 
for the reason that after the passing of the Five Mile Act, Topcliffe 
was much resorted to by the ministers, both on account of its privacy, 
and its exempting them from the penalties of that Act, the chapel 
there being without the five miles radius of any church. 

There was, however, another cogent reason why Tingley* or Leefair 
should be selected as the site for the new chapel. It was a much more 
populous district, and in addition to this ** Pastor Elston," in 1685, 
married Miss Mary Pickering, whose father had given ** a handsome 
piece of ground at Tingley, for a burial place, and had wholly, or 
partly, bmlt a wall round it at his own expense." It was, therefore, a 
matter of convenience that a chapel should be near to the last-named, 
and accordingly, when Mr. Hesketh was chosen as minister, a house 
and chapel were built for him on the Upper Green. This good man 
lived until 1743, when for want of adequate support, the Dissenting 
interest became extinct. 

* Tingley : — The field of Council. [In the earliest Memorial Bolls, at Wakefield, 
the name invaiiahly appears THING LAWE. — J.H.T.] Tin, ting, or thinge, is 
derived from the old Norse tinga, to speak, allied to the English word, think. In 
this word we prohahly have a trace of one of the legislative institutions of the 
Northmen. The thinge was their great council, or popular assembly, where their 
laws were passed, and their chiefs elected. This council was held in the open air, 
on an island, hill, or promontory, and — probably to prevent any undue local 
influence from predominating— generally at a distance from any town or village. 
The Northmen introduced their *' Things" into England, and from it we derive 
Hustings, or house things, (hus, 0. E. house) the place where the election of a 
Member of Parliament is proposed by the householders qualified to vote. The 
following description of one of the judicial proceedings of a Danish *' Thing " gives 
us a good idea of the commencement of an institution that now forms so important 
a part in our legal system. The '* Things " were held in the open air, and served 
both for the discussion of public affairs and the administration of justice. For the 
latter purpose, a circle called the doom-ring {domhringe) was formed with hazel twigs, 



6 TOPCLIFFE CHAPEL. 

The Burial Ground, at Tingley, is situate about half-way between 
Leeds and Dewsbury, on what is known as the Dewsbury Eoad, and 
near to the Mansion known as ** Tingley Hall," owned by Henry 
Longbottom, Esq. In the Park, which surrounds the Hall, and just 
beyond the fence wall separating the Park from the above-named road, 
may be seen this ** God's Acre." 

Five of the gravestones which were placed over the members of the 
Topcliffe Church, yet remain, and may be seen in the plantation near 
Tingley House. The following copies of the inscription on these stones 
I have taken recently. 

Mercy Sargan, departed this life the 18th day of November, 1676, being of 
age 26 years. '* Bemember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth." 

Here lyeth the body of Jndith Brooksbank, daughter of Joseph Brooksbank, 
of EUand, who was buried the 10th of July, 1686. Also Joseph and Sarah, 
children of the said John Brooksbank. 

Here lyeth. interred the bodi of Captain- John Pickering, who died the 18th 
of April, 1699, in the year of his age 75, and also of Deborah, his wife, who died 
November 5th, 1693, in the 70 year of her age, daughter to Horatio Eure, 
Esquire and siuter to the Bight Honourable Lords G. and B. Eure.* " The 
righteous shall be had in everlasting remembrance." 

Here lyeth the body of Mr. John Lister, who departed this life April 11, 
1707. " But the righteous hath hope in his death." Here also lyeth Bathshua

or with upright stones, to which were attached cords called vibondt i.e., the conse- 
crated or sacred cords. Within this circle sat the Judges, the people standing 
on the outside, and in the middle stood the bidtsteinriy a huge stone with a sharp 
ridge, on which the backs of criminals condemned to death were broken. Each of 
the three godars or presidents of the Thing summoned twelve assessors or dooms- 
men (d6msmenn) to sit with him within the forensic circle which thus formed a court 
of justice— if we may apply modem terms to ancient institutions — of three Judges > 
and thirty-six jurymen. Any doomsman to whom either the plaintiff or defendant 
might object was to be instantly replaced by the godi who had nominated him. 
There was a ring called the Altar-ring for the administration of oaths. Every one 
engaged in a law-suit, whether as plaintiff or defendant, as witness or compurgator 
or doomsman, was obliged to swear on this ring, " In the name of Frey, N jord, and 
the Almighty God, that he would fulfil the duty imposed on him — to give evidence, 
plead, or judge, as the case might be, conscientiously and to the best of his abilities." 

Here we have, evidently, the Scandinavian form of trial by jury, for which we are 
indebted to our Danish invaders. — Grebnwell. 

* The fine parchment pedigree of the Lords Eure, with special reference to the 
Pickerings of Tingley, the Heskeths, and the Swaines, is preserved at Braboeuf

t The first entry in the Woodchurch register, now existing, records the baptism 
on the 4th November, 1652, of ** Bethia filia Dom. Johan Pickering and on 30th 
July, 1673, is an entry of her marriage to Joseph Sykes. On 12th May, 1654, also 
is entered the baptism of " Bathshua filia Dom. Johan Pickering," and on March 
6th, 1655, of Hannah, another of his daughters. On the 22nd of April, is registered 
the burial of " Dom. Johanes Pickering." — W. S. Banks.

LEE FAIKS. 7 

We cannot conclude this notice of Topcliffe Chapel without referring 
to the historically interesting character of the immediate neighbour- 
hood, from whence the congregation at Topcliffe were ^rawn. 

Leefair, as its name implies, was the scene of one of the most 
remarkable of these annual gatherings. These fairs are of very old date. 

Mr. Batty, in a paper on the priory of St. Oswald at Nostel, says the 
Canons of Nostel received a charter from King Stephen to hold two 
annual fairs, but in the preface to the Woodkirk (or Wakefield) Mysteries 
(usually called the Townley Mysteries) it is shown that King Henry I. 
made the original grant, and Stephen confirmed it. The days fixed 
are given as ** Feast of Assumption," and Feast of the Nativity of the 
Blessed Mary," viz., 15th August and 8th September. How long 
these dates were adhered to we cannot determine, but the present fairs 
are nine days later, 24th August (St. Bartholomew's Day) and 17th 
September. Another important change has taken place with respect 
to these fairs, for, whereas they are now only held on the two days 
last-named, a century ago there was in reality but one fair, which 
lasted for three weeks, and was one of the i^iost important in the 
kingdom. It was at that time, a mart for the sale of nearly all kinds 
of produce, as well as being celebrated for the size and importance 
of its transactions in horses and cattle. Fruit, onions, &c., w^ere 
in abundance, and it is said that ** multitudes came from towards 
Huddersfield and many other parts of the county to purchase these 
articles, which were stowed in. bams, and sold at booths by lamplight 
in the morning." If we are to believe the testimony of the ** oldest 
inhabitant," ** Lee Fair" of fifty years ago was a gathering, which, 
once seen, was ever remembered, having only its counterpart in the 
fun and frolic of ** Donnybrook," in the sister isle. As to the origin 
of the name " Lee," Scatcherd derives it from the name of Dr. Legh, 
grantee of the site of Nostel Priory, in 1540. That the Legh family 
had a connection with West Ardsley is shown in Thoresby's Due, 
Leod,, 221 in the Legh pedigree, where it names William Leghe, Esq., 
attainted 83 Henry VIII., as seized of lands in West Ardsley and 
Westerton. This person was attainted of high treason with Edward 
Tattersal, a clothier, and Ambler, a priest, and was executed in 1541. 
An interesting notice of **Lee Fair " is to be found in the court rolls of 
the manor of Wakefield, and therefrom something is learned about the 
scenes which took place at this annual carnival. Notwithstanding 
that the fair at that time belonged to the Canons of Wodekirk, riot 
and disorder were not uncommon : — Alicia de Scardeby op. se versus 
Johannem de Heton, et quer ; quod die Lunae, in Festo Nativitatis 
Beat^e Mari^, anno regis Edwardi nunc nono, idem Johannes insultum 
fecit in ipsam Aliciam et cepit ipsam per capillos capitis sui in nundinia 
de Wodekirk, et ipsam extraxit per capillos praedictos, a parte boreali 
ex parte nunc prsedict : quousque fossatum : Australi ex parte earun- 
dum. Et quia non potuit capillos predictos eradicare in hac forma, 
emarcuit ped, suo in facie ejusdem. Alicise causa eradicandi capillos

predictos ; et nihil hominus cepit quendem baculum et ipsam verberavit 
ultra humeros, lumbos, et corpus, et alia enormia et intulit, ad dampa 
sua C solet inde perduxit sectam. 

The John de Heton named in this charge was the head of a great 
family living at Old Howley Hall, near Woodkirk. His wife Amabil 
was also concerned in this outrage, and complaint was made against 
both, and also against one John Graffard, in the same court. John 
de Heton was evidently a pugnacious character, for one John of 
Newcastle also complained of him for an assault and battery at the 
same fair, to his damage of 100 shillings ; and one William (the) 
Carter also laid complaint that the said John de Heton had come into 
his stall at the fair and had overturned it, by which he had lost 20 
gallons of beer, worth 2s. 4d., a cask valued, 12d., and a sack valued 8d.; 
the covering of his stall was also torn, damage 12d., and other injuries; 
total loss 40s. — a great sum of money in those days. One thing more 
in the above extract is noticeable, namely, the distance from whence 
people came to this very celebrated fair to lay in their stock of necess- 
aries for the winter. Here we have two travellers, Alice (of) Scardeby 
and John of Newcastle — the one probably a thrifty housewife, and 
the other a dealer in cattle and wares. There is in this incident a fair 
illustration of how in these ancient chivalrous times, the great men of 
, the day conducted themselves. John de Heton, in all probability, 
aided by his man Graffard, and wife Amadil, made valorous by the 
carter's good liquor, kicks up a row, overturns the landlord's stall, taps 
his casks, knocks down the Newcastle wight, and then falls foul upon 
the person of Alice de Scardeby. The fair at Woodkirk at this period 
(Edward II.) was reckoned amongst the most famous then held in the 
country, and to which it is said that merchants from France, Spain, 
Florence, the Low Countries, and even Germany came with their 
wares and merchandise to sell, and every family of consequence, as 
well as the religious houses, laid in their stock of necessaries for a 
whole year. In these accommodating days the priest and clerk stood 
ready all day, during the time of the fair, to marry in the neighbouring 
church all such as, during the mirth of the fair, were desirous to enter 
the matrimonial state. Another noteworthy circumstance connected 
with this celebrated fair must not be overlooked. On St. Bartholomew's 
Day, on which the fair ended, the scholars from the Grammar Schools 
of Leeds, Wakefield and other places, were brought to this place for 
disputation, or to ascertain their proficiency in classical learning, 
annually, down to the early part of last century. Whether these 
examinations were conducted on the Oxford and Cambridge models, 
or on that of the Science and Art Department, or Yorkshire Union of 
Mechanics' Institutes, there is no authentic data on which to found 
an opinion ; but St. Bartholomew, the patron or tutelary saint of 
scholars, held high carnival once a year at "Lee Fair." An amusing 
incident connected with one of these gatherings is related by an old 
man who died about 1780. He says, ** My father, when a boy, was 



WOODCHXmCH. 9 

present during a disputation, and had well-nigh been knocked on the 
head by a beadle ; for happening to ask one of the boys who stood up 
improper questions, the gentleman in gold-laced robe and cocked hat 
applied his truncheon so forcibly to the ' pericranium ' of the catechiser 
as made him remember his impudence aU his Ufe afterwards." Of all 
the early Enghsh fairs, estabhshed by Boyal charters smd privileges, 
for the sale or interchange of goods and produce, and for the hiring of 
men and maid-servants, when towns, villages, and hamlets were 
scattered and far apart, and the roads few and unsafe, Lee Fair was 
one of the earliest and best knowq. Our readers will have learnt by 
this time not to judge of what Wodekirk fair was, from what **Lee 
Fair" now is. In our early days it was of much more consequence 
than it has been for many years past, and musicians, actors, and 
jugglers, such as were brought to fairs to attract company, were present 
in large numbers. 

WooDCHURCH, is a place of great interest, pointing to Saxon times, 
with its cell of Black Canons, its ** Mystery Plays," its ** Frying-Pan 
Stone," its Poet, ** Old Trash," and its ancient church, with its 
**Howley Hall," **Topcliffe," **Westerton," and ** Hague Hall," seats 
telling of times when famiUes of great note dwelt hereabouts. The 
name Woodchurch as applied to the sacred edifice, is thought by 
W. S. Banks to mean Church-in-the-Wood, but we are inclined to 
agree with Scatcherd, that it means wooden church. ** Wood- 
church" designates a very ancient place of worship, composed of 
the usual materials of which sacred buildings were constructed in 
Saxon times, or in remoter ages. ** Woodkirk," says Scatcherd, 
** originally a cell under Nostel Priory was formed in the reign of 
Henry I. (a.d. 1100-1185), although only a cell to the Priory, the 
remaining foundations prove it to have been of considerable extent. 
The church was conventual as well as parochial, and was supposed 
to be possessed of considerable sanctity. It was noticed by 
Leland (Henry VIII). On July 12th, 1831, the roof fell in, burying 
the nave, pulpit, and pews ; and as a result of this disaster, it was 
discovered that the ancient walls had been beautifully painted, lettered, 
and gilded, exhibiting roses (red and white), tulips, anemones, 
grapes, peaches, leaves and other decorations. The colours were still 
beautiful, but we should like to know why they were plastered over. 
The tower of the church is supposed by some to have been rebuilt, 
since the days of the Black Canons ; but I am inclined to think that 
such is not the case, as from the characters of the mountings and 
carvings, it evidently belongs to the twelfth century and the tran- 
sition period, when the semicircular arch of the Norman style was 
giving way to the pointed arch. There are no buttresses now, but 
an embattled parapet round the top. The three bells in the tower are 
dated 1713. One bears the words ^^DeumLaudamusy' another ''Deo 
Gloria,'' but the third has no inscription. We cannot say that the 
interior of the church at the present time is of a pleasing character. 



10 TOPCLIFFE CHAPEL. 

though there are some fine specimens of old carving, conspicuous 
among which are the ends of the stalls in the chancel, all of the 
fifteenth century — the remnants, no doubt, of the seats once used by 
the Black Canons. These seat ends are remarkably perfect, having 
the outer face richly relieved by rectilinear tracery, and are each sur- 
rounded by a finial or poppy head, on which is carved a wheat sheaf, 
vine leaves and grapes, dividing over a curious monogram of the 
Saviour composed of the letters I and S coupled with a chord, so 
disposed as to complete the I H S, and with its ends crossed, the 
whole device aptly symbolising the bread and wine, the significant 
memorials of the passion and death of Christ. If the casual observer 
will go to the east end of the church, he can see where the Canons 
had their fishponds in a deep hollow. These reservoirs for the Canons' 
fish were in existence in Dr. Whitaker's day. In the churchyard, 
close to the path leading from the entrance on the road-side to 
the porch, is a stone — a curious relic, known as the Frying-pan Stone. 
It bears the design of a wheel, cross-wheel, and shaft ; and about 
this stone there is a strange legend, to which, however, we attach no 
credence." The registers of the church commence in 1652, and include 
some interesting parchments, many of them bearing the Great Seal 
of England. Two of these seals — one of Queen Elizabeth and one 
of King Charles I. — are in good preservation. 

Another interesting fact connected with Woodchurch can be 
gathered from one of the volumes of the Surtees Society's publi- 
cations, on the Toumeley.Mystenes. From this work it may be learned 
that there were three sets of mysteries — one at Chester, another at 
Coventry, and a third at what was described at Wydkirk. It is 
believed that the latter had been performed, if not written, at Wood- 
church, for they contained local references and West Riding expressions. 
For instance, allusion is made to ** Horbury Shroggs." In all prob- 
ability these miracle plays were written at the monastery at Woodkirk, 
and acted in the church on the occasion of the fairs. The object 
of these mysteries or plays was to brmg religion home in a tangible 
form to the frequenters of the ** Lee Fairs " of that day. 

Dunningley, within half-a-mile due east of Topcliffe, is noted as 
being the birthplace of Christopher Saxton, an eminent choro- 
"grapher, and also as containing the residence of a sweetheart of 
Nevison, the highwayman. In Dr. John Dee's diary, 1596, appears 
this entry : — ** July 10th, Manchester town described and measured 
by Mr. Christopher Saxton." Mr. J. E. Bailey, writes of this as 
follows : — ** This Manchester survey which would be a valuable 
addition to our local topography, is not now known to be in existence. 
C. Saxton was the author of the first maps of Britain from actual 
survey. The series of maps was nine years in preparation and was 
first issued as a complete atlas of maps in 1579. Thoresby remarked 
that the maps had never been surpassed, scarcely equalled for 
exactness.* Each map contains the arms of the Queen, who gave 

* Loidis and Elmete, Ed. 1816, p. 240. 



DtlNNINGLEY. 11 

Saxton a patent for publishing the charts for ten years, and of Thomas 
Sackfbrd, Master of Kequests, in whose employment, Sa^ton was at 
the date of the patent. 8axton was also encouraged by Sir William 
Cordel, Master of the Rolls. His skill as a chorographer is set forth 
in his epitaph." Thoresby says that in all probability he was buried 
in Batley Church.* Dunningley at the present time, consiata of a 
few farm-houses, not remarkable for their antiquity or pictures queness. 
The entries in the Topcliffe register commence in 1G56, and end 
in 1786, a period of eighty years, and the entries refer to members 
of the congregation residing in Morley, as well as at Topcliffe, and the 
immediate neighbourhood. When the Act of Uniformity became law, 
though the Presbyterians kept possesaion of the lease of the chapel, 
they had to leave the premises, and for twenty years at least, tliey 
worshipped at Topcliffe chapel, until in 1689, they built the old 
parsonage in Morley, and obtained a license to perform worship 
therein. Scatcherd gives it as his opinion, that the Old Chapel was 
restored to the Nonconformists in 1698, but if this is correct it ia 
somewhat singular that the register contains no entries referring to 
the Old Chapel, between 1691 and 1736, when the TopclifTe chapel 
was given up. But remembering that the Topchffe chapel, and the 
Old Chapel were as one this lends additional interest to the register.

ancient Church, or place where our foreiathers wor- 

lipped for centuries, must of necessity have an historical 

itue beyond that of any other relic of antiquity which 

town OT village may possess, and we are prepared to 

ate that there are circumstances about the ecclesias- 

eal history of Morley, and more particularly of its 

aeient Church of St Mary's, which, we beheve, do not 

jpertain to any other district in England. If we could 

thorn all the details of its career, we should find that 

».'ouiid it has centred the main history of the tillage, 

and 'associated with it are incidents interesting to the student and the 

antiquary. To what secular as well as religious uses St. Mary's may 

have been pat during the past ages it is now difficult to determine, 

but as Churches were often used during civil strife, as a depository for 

arms and a refuge during pressing dangers, it is not beyond the bounds 

of possibility that when the Scots wintered at Morley, and duiing the 

Civil ]War, and at many other times the walls of St. Mary's may have 

been a shelter and protection for other than the Christians of those 

times. Certain it is that the Chapel has been used as a school-house 

and a tithe-ham, and a place for the discussion and settlement of 

parish-affairs. 

We do not claim to be able to settle the point as to when a place 
for public worship was first planted upon the site of St. Mary's, but 
it is more than likely that after the first rude and primitive cross was 
planted aa a rallying point for the faithful, a Saxon Church was in all 
probability built, perhaps wattled, staked and thatched, or of wood. 
In Anglo-Saxon times the Church on this site, by whatever name 



. D0UE8DAT BOOR. 2S 

it was called, served aa the Parish Church for the whole district. 
BcATCHERD says that there was a Church here during the Baxon 
Heptarchy, but so far as building materials are concerned, there are 
no traces to be found to justify this theory. We are inclined, however, 
to think that the surmise is a correct one, and for the reason that, 
after the conversion of Edwin to Christianity, and the destruction of 
the images by Coifa, in the kingdom of Northumbna, the people fol- 
lowed the example of their ruler, and after incessant wars with the 
neighbouring kingdoms, we find Christian people copying the example 
of Wilfred, Bishop of York, who built several Churches in his diocese 
before the end of the eighth century. 

Leaving the speculative, we can affirm with certainty that a place 
of worship occupied the site of St. Mary's as early as the eleventh 



Morle; Old Chapel, \.a. 1830. 
century, for Domesday Book records the fact ; but independent of 
this testimony, we have in the garden of Osborne House portions of 
two Norman arches, and the keystone of one of them. The Norman 
decorations on these stones are similar to those which are to be found 
at Hartshead and Adel Churches. The stones were found embedded 
in the foundations of the Old Chapel when it was pulled down in 
1875, to make way for the present handsome building. On a piece of 
one of these arches there is the chevron work, which has its counter- 
part in some ancient buildings in Canterbury, which are said to have 
been built in the year 1110. On the arch is the Norman toothwork, 
identical with the newer portions of the buildings to which we have 
just referred. The chevron work was generally done by the axe, and

the tooihwork by the chisel. These are unerring evidences of a 
Norman Church having existed at Morley soon after the Conquest. 
Other stones are in company with those to which we have just referred, 
which also possess historical interest, and to which we shall refer 
subsequently. " When Edward 11. found himself in the possession of 
plenary power, he resolved to wipe out the disgrace of Bannockbum 
and win back Scotland to his crown. He addressed a letter to the 
Pope, stating that he was engaged in preparing to invade Scotland, 
but the Scots, anticipating the coming war, entered England and 
penetrated to Lancaslure, but subsequently returned laden with booty. 
Meanwhile Edward was marching towards Scotland, but he was 
seriously menaced in the rear by the Scots who remained in England.'' 
Referring to the latter. Dr. Whitakeb says : " In the year 1322 a 
large division of the Scottish army, which spread devastation and 
havoc wherever it went, wintered at Morley, and threw the inhabitants 
of Leeds into such a panic that they buried their treasures, some of 
which being the coins of that period were found in the early part of 
the last century." In the records of Nostel Priory it is stated in the 
defence of Henry H. Abberford, one of the Priors, that Morley had to 
support an army of Scots for fifteen days, some years before the re- 
bellion of Lancaster. We can readily beUeve that at this time Morley 
was a place of some consequence, and no doubt the Church would 
figure prominently in the scenes of those stirring times. Before they 
left the town there is reason to believe that they destroyed the principsd 
buildings, including the Church, which they are understood to have 
burnt down. This is very hkely, as on the stones to which we have 
already referred, there are marks which clearly show that they have 
been subjected to intense heat. The Church so burnt down was not, 
however, the Norman Church which was in existence when the Domes- 
day Book was compiled. 

Soon after the Conquest the Church of St. Mary's was made a 
dependent Chapel to Batley, by Robert de Lacy, and this must have 
been previous to the year 1120, for in that year Lacy founded the 
Priory of Nostel, to which he gave the Church at Batley, and in all 
probability, the Church of St. Mary's at Morley along with it. There 
IS some evidence that the Church was not in existence when Henry III. 
ascended the throne in 1216; but be that as it may, we do not 
believe that for any great length of time the site was unoccupied by 
a place for worship. 

The nave of the '* Old Chapel," as nearly as can be ascertained, 
was erected about the year 1560, and was used, doubtless, for the 
tithe-bam of the lord of the manor. When the tithes came to be 
compounded for, it became useless for this purpose, and was converted 
into a place of worship about the time of James I. or Charles I. The 
nave was enlarged about the year 1710, by the addition of two side 
aisles. When the nave was altered firom the tithe-bam into a ' ' chapel, ' ' 
we believe that the chancel was converted into a school, if not a dwel-

ling, and was an integral structore down to the era of the Revolution, 
in 1688. At any rate it was the village school in 1668, the master 
being the celebrated BepubHcan officer. Captain Thomas Oates, or one 
of his sons, Ralph or Samuel, the former of whom had taken his 
degree of M.A. in one of the Universities. Sgatgherd says that ''it is 
most likely that it was the vestry as well as the village school after 
the Restoration, but I am convinced it was not laid open to the chapel 
till after the Revolution in 1688." In 1825, on removing the white- 
wash from the walls of the nave, an interesting discovery of ancient 
scrolls was made, bearing inscriptions which were very suggestive. 
These writings were, in all probabiUty, copies of others wlach had 
been on the walls of the nave previous to its enlargement, and which 
were put up soon after the time of the Commonwealth. At that time 
it was common to affix upon walls passages from Scripture calculated 
to keep up a feeling of loyalty. Sgatgherd gives it as his opinion 
that the inscriptions in the Old Chapel were levelled at Major Great- 
head, Captain Oates, and all those who had been privy to the Famley 
Wood Plot, in 1668, and also as a rebuke to the Republicans through- 
out the land. This is probable, as in close proximity to the following 
inscription, '' My Son, fear thou the Lord and the King, and meddle 
not with them that are given to change," was the Royal coat of arms, 
with the letters '' C.R." on each side of the crown, and also above the 
lion's head, and the date 1664 underneath the whole. This ancient 
and spirited symbol of royalty is still preserved to us. Outside the 
Chapel was an ancient clock and bell turret, the ponderous and anti- 
quated mechanism of the former proving it to be of an early date. 
The bell on which the hour was struck is dated 1694, and the motto, 
** Soli Deo Gloria,'' shows that it was intended for the service of the 
sanctuary, though tradition says that it was the dinner bell at Howley 
Hall. 

We shall now say something respecting the people and the times 
more immediately connected with the change from the Romish service 
to the Puritan form of worship. The exact date when this took place 
we cannot determine, but the first minister of whom we have any 
record was the Rev. Samuel Wales, a Presbyterian, who occupied the 
pulpit in 1627. During his ministry the congregation increased rapidly, 
and the influence of its pastor and chief members obtained such coun- 
tenance that Thomas Viscount Savile, Earl of Sussex, who was then 
living at Howley Hall, gave a lease of the Chapel and premises to the 
following trustees of the Presbyterian denomination: — ** Edward 
Birtbie, of Scholecroft; Thomas Oates, John Rayner, John EUis, 
Wilham Ward, John Crowther, Thomas Greathead, of Morley ; John 
Smith, Wm. Bancke, Jos. Greathead, of Gildersome ; Robert Paulden, 
and WilHam Bumhill, of Churwell, in the county of York.*' A copy 
of this interesting document may be seen in ** Smith's Rambles about 
Morley." Several of the trustees above-named were famous in their 
day and generation, and left themselves a name and a place in the 



tBe uanob hoDss. 29 

page of history. They lived in eventful times, and were no idle spec- 
tatore of the circumstaneea by which they were surrounded. They 
gained for the village of Morley a notoriety which has outhved their 
own days. In the year l(i63, immediately after the ejectment or 
passing of the Act of Uniformity, there arose a disaffection amongst 
the people of the West Biding, which culminated in the "Famley 
Wood Plot." The Morley and neighbouring Nonconform is ta, and 
some of their pastors even, were privy to this rising, and several of 
them were present on the occasion. Many will remember that the 
object of this plot was to reinstate the ejected pastors, to restore the 
rebel Parliament, and to remit the taxes. Government was made 
aware of the movement by some who were in the secret, and steps 
were taken to entrap and secure the offenders. The actual date when 
the meeting took place in Famley Wood seems to be a disputed point, 
as MiALL in his " Congregationalism in Yorkshire," gives the 10th of 



Manor Honae, Horle;. 
October, while Scatcherd states that it took place a httle before mid- 
night on the 12th of that month. In the "Calendar of Domestic 
Papers," we find a letter, sent on the 18th October, 1663, from 
Edward Copley, to Sir Geo. Saville, to this effect : — 
1663, Oct. 13. Fear snrpriee, as ma-aj passed t}iraag1i Leeds on horseback last

ScATCHEBD erroneously speaks of some thirty persons as forming the 
band of conspirators, whilst Miall also says that "the number as- 
sembled amounted in all to about twenty persons," In face of the 
above letter, these writers can only refer to the leaders of the plot, of 
whom twenty-one were executed, whilst the bulk of those who were 
present made their escape. We cannot stay to give a detailed history 



80 MOBLST OLD OHAPBL. 

of the origin, progress, and fftflure of this rising, but we will refer to 
the Morley conspirators who took part in that memorable plot. Captain 
Thomas Otes, or Oates, one of the Old Chapel trustees, and the leader 
of the insurrection, is thus described by Sgatcherd : ** Captain Oates, 
being an old Republican officer, had, doubtless, distinguished himself 
on the same fields with Major Greathead, Captains Hodgson and 
Pickering, and many others who lived in* this vicinity. At the call of 
his country he first took up arms, and probably laid them down when 
the army under Lambert was disbanded. At any rate, aft^ the Bestora- 
tion he was the village schoolmaster, and he taught his scholars in 
the chancel end of the Chapel oi ' St. Mary-in-the-Wood.' From 
aged people I have learned that upon his boys giving warning of the 
Approach of mihtary, he fled, and was seen no more at Morley ; which 
is not improbable, as the Chapel-yard commands a distant view -of the 
road from Leeds, and as, it is certain, he was taken and executed." 
Captain Oates, hved in the Manor House, Morley, a substantial dwel- 
ling-house, memorable since the Captain's days as the birthplace of 
one of Yorkshire's merchant princes, the late Sir Titus Salt, Bart. 
The house still remains, and is occupied by Dr. Steele. The Captain 
was aidqd in the plot by Balph Oates, a clergyman, his son, who 
assisted his father in the school, but of whom it is said that he was a 
man of no reputation. He was taken prisoner, when he turned king's 
evidence, and declared the existence of a widely-spread conspiracy. 
The captain was tried at York, and afterwards executed. John Ellis, 
another of the trustees connected with the Old Chapel, some of whose 
descendants are still living, also had been a soldier and trumpeter in 
the army of the Parliament. Having acquired some property he hved 
upon it, at or near where Tingley Hall now stands. This property 
was seized by the Crown, and Ellis was hanged, drawn, and quartered. 
Amongst the other conspirators connected with this plot were the 
following, who were members of the congregation worshipping at the 
Old Chapel. John Fozzard, who had been a cavalry soldier under 
Fairfax, and was at the time of the plot '* the servant of Abraham 
Dawson, who lent him a horse." Fozzard was a faithful servant, for 
he was induced to join the conspirators at the instigation of his master, 
and to his honour it is recorded that '' he might have saved his own 
life by the sacrifice of his master's, but he disdained the thought," 
and in gratitude for his constancy, his widow and children were almost 
wholly supported by the Dawsons, who then hved at the Hall in 
Morley. Joseph Crowther, commonly called *' Corporal Crowther," 
from his holding that position in the Parhamentary army, occupied a 
house on Banks' Hill, Morley, to which the agitators often resorted. 
The house is still standing, and is a fair specimen of the architecture 
of the seventeenth century. Crowther does not appear to have been 
executed, and the probabihty is that he fled his country or turned 
King's evidence^ Several others of the Morley conspirators escaped 
with their lives, ampngst them being Atkinson and Dickenson, the

latter after lying long concealed with the former in coal pits, near 
Gildersome, went one night late to his own house, and, rapping at a 
window, asked for some shoes and stockings, which having received, 
he and his partner in crime travelled to London, and subsequently 
made their escape to Holland. Joshua Asquith, alias Cardmaker, alias 
Sparling, descendants of whom are still hving, also escaped with his 
life by turning informer, for we find that a letter was sent by Sir 
Thomas Wentworth to the Duke of Buckingham to the following 
effect : — 

Mr. Bonlton's evidence of a rising is confirmed by Askwith and William Tolson 
(another of the Morley conspirators), who were asked to get horses and join a 
meeting at Morley. After the meeting at Famley 100 horses marched forward 
to Bradford Moor, and the rest dispersed ; they only waiting the disarming of 
the other side to act their part. Oct. 16, 1663. 
An interesting notice of the part Asquith took in this plot is to be 

found in the "Depositions at York," published by the Surtees Society. 

It is to this effect : — 

Oct. 28th, 1663.~William Hage (Haigh), of Woodchnrch, hoshandman, said that 
on Monday the 12th October last, he mett William Askwith, alias Sparlinge, 
abonte 8 of the clocke at night, nere Howley Parke, to search for two horses 
of Sir Richard Tankard's, and that they did intend to have rise with Captain 
Thos. Oates. About two days after this the informant apprehended him npon 
the late plott, and he told this informant that on the night after they parted 
he went to Morl^y to Oates, his house, that Oates was gone to Farnley Wood, 
and beinge too late to goe, he returned home againe. And one, Samuel Ellis 
did confesse to this informant V\&t he went to Morley to be a trumpiter to a 
troope of horse under Captain Oates, and had the Lord Castleton's trumpett 
with him. 
John Aveyard, saith, that he apprehended John Fawcet, for the late plott, and he 
did confesse, that he was in armes in Fameley Wood with Captain Oates and 
others, to the number of 25 persons or thereabouts. 
Sparling (Askwith) was a prisoner in York Castle for a long time, but escaped the 
gallows. 
Returning to the Old Chapel trust deed, we find another name which 
we must not omit, viz., that of Major Greathead, who fought bravely 
against the Royalists at the battle of Adwalton Moor. The Major 
was bom about 1615, and lost his father when little more than seven 
years of age. A brother of his, named Peter, was a man of some 
consequence, being an eminent woollen manufacturer in Morley. In 
early life the Major married Susan, daughter of Mr. Ralph Crowther, 
of Gildersome, a man of some fortune, by which lady he had four 
sons and three daughters. At the commencement of the Civil War 
the Major was possessed of but a small estate, though enjoying a high 
character for patriotism and honour. About six months after the 
engagement at Adwalton he was, in January, 1644, when between 
twenty-eight and twenty-nine years of age, appointed Major of a 
regiment of foot, commanded by Colonel Richard Thornton. Subse- 
quently, and in particular after the death of his Colonel, who is 
supposed to have fallen at Marston Moor, or before Pontefract Castle, 
he was still further advanced in the service, and we find him ulti- 
mately chosen by the Republicans to be General in the West Riding.

The Major subsequently lost his fair fame, and his laurels became 
tarnished, not only by his submission to the Government of Charles, 
but by his acceptance of a mercenary office under it. When the Act 
of Uniformity became law, the then minister of the Old Chapel con- 
formed, and by this act the Estabhshed Church then obtained pos- 
session of the Chapel, but the Presbyterian trustees still kept possession 
of the lease of the property. The fact of the possession of the Chapel 
is proved by the " Royal Arms " bemg set up in the nave, in 1664, 
and also by the service book used about that time and still preserved, 
which contains the liturgy of the Church of England. In this 
service-book are ** prayers for James, for Mary Catherine, the Queen 
Dowageif ; Mary, Princess of Orange ; and the Priftcess Ann of Den- 
mark," and at the beginning in an old-fashioned hand, we find the 
entry, "Morley Town's Book Common Prayer." This book was not 
used after 1688, for in the prayers no substitution of the name'of 
King William for that of James occurs. The Chapel was restored to 
the Nonconformists somewhere between 1693 and 1698, for we know 
that in 1686 the Dissenters built the present parsonage, and three 
years afterwards obtained a license to perform religious worship 
therein, which they would not have done had they regained at that 
time possession of the Chapel. This certificate of license appears to 
have been obtained after the passing and by virtue of the Toleration 
Act, and is to the following effect : — 

At the general quarter sessions of the peace of oar Lord and Lady the King and 
Queen, held at Leeds, adjournment from another place in the West Riding, the 
13th day of July, in the first year in the reign of our said Lord and Lady 
William and Mary, now King and Queen of England, before Sir John Kay, 
Baronet ; Marmadnke Wentworth and William Lowther, Knights ; Wm. Norton, 
John Townley, and Robert Ferrand, Esqnires, and other justices ; these are to 
certify that the house built by the inhabitants of Morley, within the said West 
Riding, was recorded at the sessions above-said, for a meeting-place for a congre- 
gation or assembly for religious worship according to the form of the statute 
in that case made and provided. 

The above license was accepted on behalf of the congregation at 
Morley by two of the members. 

In 1875 the Church of St. Mary's-in-the-Wood was razed to the 
ground, and a handsome new edifice erected on the site. Previous to 
this the Chapel had undergone "restoration" in 1865, but it was 
subsequently found that the roof and other parts of the structure were 
unsafe, and it was ultimately decided to remove it altogether, much to 
the regret of many of the inhabitants. 

The Registers of the Old Chapel commence in 1756, so far as the 
separate entries of Baptisms and Burials are concerned, as distinct 
from the joint entries in the Topcliffe Register, We trust that the 
perusal of these {Registers may afford gratification to our readers, 
especially to those who are natives of our newly incorporated Borough, 
and whose ancestors have dwelt there during many generations. We 
are aware that there is a prejudice against the study of genealogy,

happily however, decreasing day by day, and it is spoken of as simply 
a harmless pastime, without any real bearing upon any matter of 
importance : but we hold a more exalted idea of the value of this study, 
believing that a correct and exact knowledge of family history is the 
first step to the true knowledge of the history of a, country. And the 
same is true in a lesser degree of the history of a town or village, and 
though the old families of such a small village as Morley was, two 
centuries ago, may not all have become famous in the history of 
England, yet, many of them, as we shall see bye and bye, did good 
work in their day and generation, and took their share, may be, a 
modest one, but QOt an unimportant one-^in forming the character 
and habits and reputation of the Morley of the past. We look upon it, 
therefore, as a matter of much interest to pry into thia old Register, 



Morle; Old Chapel, 1670. 

and to notice what families now amongst us had representatives settled 
here two hundred years ago. When we come to mention the names 
of these families, it must not be taken for granted that in every instance 
the modem holders of the name are descendants from their namesakes 
of the seventeenth century, but it may safely be said that it is the case 
in, most of the examples. We shall also have occasion to make refer- 
ence to the residence here of other families who have now altogether 
disappeared, famihes too of some consequence in their day. 

Parish Registers were established for the identification of individuals 
and to avoid confusion. They were ordained by mandate of Thomaa 
Cromwell, the Vicar General, to be kept in every Parish, and the order 



36 MORLET OLD CHAPEL. 

was pretty generally obeyed. They were to specify the dates of baptisms, 
marriages and burials. '< This information may appear to be of a most 
scanty nature and so it was, and yet, the Parish Registers of England 
constitute the substratum of the social and domestic history of every 
Parish, because they record the names of all those persons who have 
played a part, be it humble or distinguished, in the annals of the 
district in which they lived, or possibly became famous in a world-wide 
sense, for learning, piety, enterprise or valour ; besides they are oft- 
times the only proofs of a man's existence." 

When Vicar Cromwell, in 1538, ordered the keeping of Registers, 
he stipulated that the entries were to be made weekly by the Clergy- 
man, in the presence of the Churchwardens, and a fine of 3s. 4d. was 
itnposed for neglect, the fines to be employed in the repairs of the 
Church. In 1547, a second order was issued, similar to the first, 
except that the penalty was directed to *'be paid to the poore men's 
box of each parish." What has become of the Register of St. Mary's 
for the first one hundred years after these orders were issued, it is 
impossible for us to determine, but it is greatly to be regretted that it 
is not to be found. It is also to be deplored that the original Register 
(of which the present volume is only a copy) was not kept, for, after a 
careful examination of the copy, we have come to the conclusion that 
the work of transcribing has been very slovenly done. From evidence 
taken from the book itself, we find that the copy of the Register-book 
would be made between the years 1834 and 1840. The entries in 
original Register commence in 1658 and would continue to the date of 
transcription, with some slight intervals to be accounted for. The 
copying has been done by several different writers, and in some 
instances without any regard to order or regularity, and we are afraid 
without much regard to veracity. 

In many Parishes the Register served as a kind of note-book for the 
Minister, and in addition to the ordinary prosaic chronicles of the living 
and the dead, it often contained memoranda of local interest, brief and 
pithy notes on passing events, and the ever-varying circumstances of 
parochial life, recalling past scenes and incidents with a vividness that 
required only the warm heart to give the actual throb of life. In the 
Register of St. Mary's, however, little beyond the short tale of baptism 
and burial is told. In one or two instances, mention is made when a 
death has been caused by accident or violence, or some poor homeless 
wanderer has met his or her death while passing through the village. 
In 1759, it is recorded that ** A traveling Man Unknown where he 
came from Died at Matthew Ellis house at Morley, Died, Nov. 22nd, 
1759." Another entry reads as follows : " Joseph Buckley, of Morley, 
died August 13th, 1768, he was slain by a cart near Ardsley." In 1768, 
we are told that ** A poor travelling woman died at John Gammells, 
of Churwell, Nov. 16, her name unknown." In a few instances, in 
list of baptisms, the exact time of the birth is recorded, probably to 
give facility to the Astrologer who might afterwards wish to " cast the 



PABISH REGISTERS. 87 

nativity," or tell the fortune of the child. In 1679, we are told that 
" Elisha, son of Mr. Joseph Sykes, bom 4th March, about two in the 
morning, and baptised 15th of the same month." This Mr. Joseph 
Sykes had doubtless satisfactory reasons for being so particular as to 
the moment of birth, for we find that on one page of the Register, and 
from the year 1675 to 1693, he had no less than twelve children 
baptised, to each of which entry is added the time of birth. 

The principal famihes in Morley at the present day, whose names 
occur in the Register for more than two centuries, are the Scatcherd's, 
Rayner's, Brook's, Bradley's, Tetley's, Sykes's, Marshall's, Jackson's, 
Asquith's, Brooksbank's, Rhodes's, Baxter's, Dawson's, Clark's, 
Pickles's, and some few others. By far the greater number of names 
which appear from 1656 to 1700 have disappeared, and are unrepre- 
sented at the present time. We may name a few chosen at random : 
Linley, Smallwood, Pickering, Riddlesden, Angrom, Wadsworth, 
Thornton, Holdsworth, Cloudesley, Heald, Balme, Gargrave, Arundel, 
Storey, Bartas, and many others. 

From these lists we learn how some family names endure in the 
same place for centuries, whilst others become extinct or worn out in 
a much shorter period. The names of Rayner, Webster,^ and Asquith 
have been connected with Morley from time immemorial we may 
almost venture to say. Mr. Scatcherd says that ** the name of the 
first person whom I can discover living at Morley is Richard Webster, 
married in 1575 to Johan Watson." In 1600, was born in Morley, 
Mr. Edward Reyner, who became an University M.A., and a most 
distinguished preacher and author. About 1640, he was settled at 
Lincoln, but was invited to Leeds by the magistrates and principal 
inhabitants, who pressed him with the consideration of its being his 
native county which needed his help. This exemplary and worthy 
member of a family, which is well represented in Morley at the present 
day, was the author of several good books on ** Christian Practice," 
** Marriage," ** A Vindication of Human Learning," ** The Being and 
Well-being of a Christian," and a little book, which is in our possession, 
dated 1656, and is said to be printed by R. I. for Thomas Neuberry, and 
are to be sold at his shop at the Three Lions, near the Exchange, 
London. The title is ** Rules for the Government of the Tongue," 
and from a perusal of its interesting pages, we feel sure that* a reprint 
of the work might serve a useful purpose at the present day if it was 
read. The first entry of the name of Reyner is in 1657, three years 
after the Register commences, and strange to say the name is spelt 
with the a as at the present day, though the Edward Reyner of whom 
we have been speaking, spelt his name ** Reyner." For a century the 
a remained in the name, until in 1753 it changes back to e, and also 
to a variety of spellings such as Renor, Reynor, Reynar, Reiner, and 
one or two others. 

We shall now proceed to notice the Christian Names which appear 
in the early entries of St. Mary's Register, but before doing so, we will 



88^ MORLET OLD CHAPEL ^ 

refer to the names in vogue for some considerable period before the 
Register commences. '* The earliest class of names are the British, but 
none of these can be found in Morley at the present time. Gwendolin, 
Malvina, Mona, Sabrina, and Una, were amongst the number. The 
second class were known as Roman-British ; when the Romans con- 
quered England, it became customary for every man and woman to 
have a British and Latin name, the one having the same meaning as 
the other. Thus Agnes became Nest in British, Claudia became 
Gladys, Helena became Ham, and Julia became Guala. Then came 
the Saxon period to which belong such names as Alice, Bertha, Edith, 
Emma, and Winifred. When William the Conqueror took possession 
of England there were no Scripture names in use, but with him he 
brought Bible names. Saints names and his own Teutonic names. 

About the year 1300, in every Community of one hundred English- 
men, there was an average of twenty Johns and fifteen Williams, then 
followed Thomas, Bartholomew, Philip, Simon, Isaac and Peter, &om 
the Scriptures ; and Richard, Robert, Walter, Henry, and some few 
others &om the Teutonic list. Of female names, Matilda, Isabella, 
and Emma, were first favourites. Now, it is a somewhat singular, 
and to us an almost incomprehensible fact, that at the time of which 
we are writing there were no surnames, and the personaUty of John or 
William it was not easy to fix. It was in the fourteenth century that 
the surname was adopted, and at first there were such names as John 
the Wheelwright, John the Bigg, John the Carter, and Richard the 
Gardener. In the early part of the fourteenth century, nearly one- 
third of the male population living in England were known either by 
the name of William or John. Then arose what is known as the nick 
form and pet-name epoch ; that was the curtailment of the name, say 
from Emma to Emm, or the addition to Emma, making it Emmott. 
This will be better understood if we give one familiar illustration. 
Where a number of boys went to school and each of them were named 
Bartholomew, they would be known as Bat, Bate, Batty, Bartle, 
Bartelot, Batkin, Tolly, and Tholy. This was done to fix the identity 
of the boys, and these several forms of Bartholomew were treated ad 
so many proper names." * 

Passing on to the Eve of the Reformation, in relation to the Bible, 
there were then in existence four classes of names, namely : — Mystery 
names, taken from the characters in the sacred plays given under the 
supervision of the Church. An interesting account of these "mysteries" 
as performed at York and Woodchurch will be found in the pages of 
Old Yorkshire, j: To these plays we can attribute the popularity of such 
names as Adam and Eve, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and others. 
The second class of names came from the Crusaders, who gave us 
Baptist, Ellis or EUas, Jordan, and John, which became very popular. 

♦ Babdsley*s English Surnames, 

t Vol. v., p. 136. ' 



PUBITANIGAL NAMES. 80 

The thir^ class of names came from the Samts' Calendar, and James, 
Nicholas, Thomas, with all the Apostles save Judas, became household 
names. The fourth and remaining class of names came fr6m the 
festivals of the Church; as when a child was bom at Easter, or 
Christmas, or Whitsuntide, it received the name of the day, viz : — 
Easter, Nowel, or Pentecost. These classes of names were in the full 
tide of prosperity when the Bible printed into Enghsh, and set up in 
our Churches, became an institution. Of this period Bardsley, a 
learned authority, says, " what is known as the 'Vulgar Tongue* Bible 
revolutionized our nomenclature within the space of forty years. No 
such crisis surely ever visited a nation's register before, nor can such 
possibly happen again. Every home felt its effect. The Puritans at 
once rejected all names, Pagan or Popish, under the first head, class- 
ing all names that could not be found in the Scriptures ; and under 
the second head all names that had been employed by the Church as a 
foundation for their system." And now, passing on to the tin^e when 
the Eegisters of St. Mary's commence, we see the influence of the 
stern Puritanism of the times in the Christian names which are found 
in the first ten or twenty pages of the book. In these pages th^re are 
about 150 entries and the names run as follows : — Bathshua, eight 
times ; Lydia, six times ; Elyezer, five times ; Jacob, five times ; 
Mehelabal, four times ; and of those which appear twice or more are 
Abigail, Dorcas, Deborah, Mercy, Tamar, Defience, Euth, Naomi, 
Eachel, Bethiah, Hannah, Eebekah, Sarah, in the female list ; and 
Ichabod, Japheth, Ephraim, Moses, Benjamin, Jacob, David, Joshua, 
Samuel, Isaac, Jeremiah, Josiah, Caleb, Timothy, Abraham, Barriah, 
Jabesh, Stephen, Noah, and Gamaliel. This, to our mind, is a most 
interesting feature of the Eegisters, as showing the character of the 
people who dwelt in this place at that period in our history. In its 
rehgious aspect, how niuch we may learn of the stubborn independence 
and deep-seated convictions of the inhabitants ! A most interesting 
account of the introduction of Bible names into Yorkshire is given by 
Mr. Bardsley, and our readers will, we feel sure, pardon us if we 
reproduce it. 

" Iii Yorkshire, Puritanism made early stand, though its effects on 
the names of the people were not immediately visible. It was like the 
fire that smoulders among the underwood before it catches flame, it 
spreads the more rapidly afterwards. The Genevan Bible crept into 
the dales and farmsteads, and their own primitive life seemed but to 
be reflected in its pages. The Patriarchs lived as graziers, so did they. 
There was a good deal about sheep and kine in its chapters, and their 
own lives were spent among the milk-pails and wool shears. The 
women of the Old Testament baked cakes, and knew what good butter 
was. So did the dales' folk. By slow degrees Cecilia, Isabella, and 
Emma lapsed from their pedestal, and the httle babes were turned 
into Sarahs, Eebekahs, and Deborahs. As Nonconformity gained 
ground, Guy and Miles, and Peter and Philip became forgotten. The

lads were no sooner ushered into existence than they were transformed 
into duplicates of Joel and Amos, and Obadiah. The measles still 
ran through the family, but it was Phineas and Caleb, not Robert and 
Roger, that underwent the infliction. Chosen leaders of Israel passed 
through the critical stages of teethings As for the twelve sons of Jacob 
they could all have answered to their names in the dames' schools, 
through their Httle apple-cheeked representatives which lined the rude 
benches. On the village green every prophet, from Isaiah to Malachi, 
might be seen of an evening playing leap-frog ; unless, indeed, Zeph- 
aniah was stealing apples in the Garth. If we look over the pages of 
the Directories of West Yorkshire and strike out the surnames, we 
could imagine we were consulting anciently inscribed registers of 
Joppa or Jericho. It would seem as if Canaan and the West Riding 
had got inextricably mixed." 

This description is in every respect applicable to the registers of St. 
Mary's. Another feature in these registers is the absence of double 
Christian names, for with two exceptions a double Christian name does 
not occur until the year 1800. Previous to this date John, Thomas, 
James, and William ; Mary, Sarah, Ann, and Jane were found to be 
amply sufficient for all practical purposes. .The custom of giving 
double Christian names came from France, and there, as in England, 
it was for a long time confined to the Royal and aristocratic circles. 
It was not until the end of the 18th century that names of this character 
came into general use amongst the well-to-do people, and in our 
register the first instance is that of our esteemed historian, the entry 
reading as follows : ** 1779, July 2nd, Norrisson Cavendish, son of 
Watson Scatcherd, Esq., of Morley was born, and baptised July 26th, 
by the Rev. M. Fountain his grandfather." The second instance is 
in 1782, and refers to a member of the same family, namely, ** Watson 
Samuel, son of Watson Scatcherd, Esq., was bom and baptised July 
8th." It was not until some years later that any member of the 
lower classes dreamt of aspiring to such a daring innovation. 'The 
first entry in the register relating to the adoption of a double Christian 
name by people in the humbler walks of life is in 1816, and refers to 
the baptism of ** Sarah Ann, daughter of John and Ellen Knightson 
of Morley." 

We shall now notice the surnames attached to the entries of two 
hundred years ago, or rather refer to some of those names, which are 
represented at the present time in Morley and we will endeavour to 
give their derivation, in the hope that we may stimulate some of our 
readers to prosecute a most interesting and at the same time, in- 
structive and amusing study, that of the derivation of words, whether 
they be surnames, place-names, or personal names.* 

One of the very first surnames in St. Mary's register is that of 
Barker, a name still common amongst us. This surname was 

* Most of the deriyations here given, are from Bardsley's English Surnames* 



DEBIYATIONS OF SUBNAMES. 41 

originally given to the person who stripped the bark off the trees and 
prepared it for use, so that the tanner might ply his calling. Bark 
is derived from an old Danish verb, harka, to cover with a skm, hence 
the exterior covering of a tree. The word Er signifies an agent, or 
man, and from the frequency of tha surname in i^ncient times, we 
may judge how important was the preparation of bark for the tanner's 
yard. 

A very common name at the present day, and one which has been 
represented in Morley for centuries, is that of Senior, and we have 
some of the family who are, as a byword, called **Swinyerd," to this 
hour, and yet, it may be news to many to learn that Senior is but a 
corruption of Swineherd or Swinherd. In the register we find that 
in 1770 was bom, " Samuel, son of Samuel Swinyerd." This some- 
what prolific family have their origin in the Swineherds of the ** good 
old times." Time was, when the rustic villagers of Morley, as of 
other places, lived upon bacon, and the care of the swine was a lazy 
may be, but nevertheless an important occupation. It is to the im- 
portance this unsavoury-looking animal held in the eyes of early 
rustics we have to attribute the fact of so many names coming down 
to us connected with its keep. 

Another interesting and equally common name is that of Fosteb, 
whose ancestors were the foresters of their day, i,e, they had to keep 
the wilder beasts within their prescribed limits ; to prevent them from 
injuring the tilled lands, and in general, to guard the common interests 
of the lords and tenants of their day. Associated with the merry 
greenwood was the forester, or man of the forest. Forest is a middle 
English word (13th-15th cent.), derived from the Low Latin foresta, a 
wood ; forestiSf an open space of himting ground (MediaBval writers 
oppose the forestis, open hunting ground, to the parens, enclosed park). 
The origin of the word is in the Latin /om, out of doors, an adverb 
allied to fores, doors. Forster and Foster are merely abbreviative 
forms of forester." 

The surname Clark, is one of long standing in Morley, and originally 
signified one who ministered by God's appointment. The title is now 
used to designate certain laymen who assist in the services of the 
church, and also a man employed in an ofiice ; also an official in 
various capacities. Before the Reformation and for some time after, 
clerks were clergymen, or men in holy orders who assisted the offici- 
ating priest. The word clerk should be pronounced as it is handed 
down to us in our Morley surname, namely, Clark. 

Webster, a surname well known amongst us for generations, refers 
as many of our readers will be aware, to the cloth manufacture, an 
occupation in Morley, almost as old as its hills. Webb, is an old 
English word, signifying a cloth, tapestry; a texture of anything 
woven. The word Er a man, or agent, signified a male weaver, or 
Webber, which ultimately merged into Webster, though the ster was 
a feminine suffix, and meant a female weaver. With the Websters 

6

you would be sure to meet with the Walkers, who derive their sur- 
name from wealcere, O.E. one who trod upon the cloth to thicken it. 
The root-word is wealcoen, to roll, turn, tumble, revolve, turn up and 
down, hence " to walk." This was the mode of thickening cloth, 
before fulling stocks and milling machines were invented. In the 
Statutes of the Realm, temp. Edward IV .(1461), we find the following 
statement : — ** Hats, caps, and bonnets hitherto have been made, 
wrought, fulled, and thickened in the wonted manner, that is to say, 
with hands and feet," but now ** the use of mills brings inferior articles 
into the market." A walk mill was a thickening mill. 

With regard to the surname Smith, which appears on the first page 
of the register, and can be met with on most of the pages in the book, 
the surname is not, by any means confined to the Morley register, 
but, on the contrary, it pervades every part of the English speaking 
world. In England, Smith was applied as a suffix to almost every 
hard material on which the artisan was employed. Hence we liave 
blacksmith, silversmith, goldsmith, and many others. In proportion 
to the many "smiters" connected with the various trades, there 
sprung up a corresponding hosts of '* Smiths." As. a very old writer 
says : — 

« From whence comes Smith, aU be he Knight or sqaire, 
Bat from the Smith that forgeth at the fire." 

The bearers of this good old Saxon name, were, in ancient times, 
closely connected with the fabrication of instruments of war, as well 
as those for rural and industrial life. In fact, so useful was the smith 
as a citizen, that he is said to have been, as it were, the rivet that held 
society together, and in rural districts like Morley, he 'was often the 
sole mechanic of the district, and besides being a toolmaker, a farrier, 
and agricultural instrument maker, he doctored cattle, drew teeth, 
practised blood-drawing, and sometimes officiated as parish clerk and 
general newsmonger, for ** the smithy was the very eye and tongue of 
the village." 

The name of the occupations of our forefathers and ioiemothers is 
given us in Thackray (not the Morley whitesmith of to-day) but the 
thacker and thackster of centuries ago. Thacker signified one who 
thatched, or covered buildings and stacks with straw thrashed out, or 
m the sheaf, having the heads cut off. In those far-off days, nay, 
within our own recollection, the villager's homestead had but little 
decorative refinement about it. He was content if he could keep out 
the cold blast and the driving rain, and have a warm corner by the 
fireside. His roof was in nine cases out of ten composed of thack or 
thatch, and every village had its ** thatcher." But this useful member 
of the male population had not the business of thatching all to hitnself, 
for we find the word thackster to have been in use, and to perpetrate 
an Irishism, this thackster was a woman thatcher. 

Marshall is a surname familiar in St. Mary's Register, and is 
derived from the French marechal, and signified a horse groom, a

blacksmith, or farrier. The word was afterwards apphed to designate 
the chief officer at arms, an officer who regulated combats in the lists ; 
one who regulated rank and order on public occasions ; a harbinger, 
a pursuivant. He was also a person who ordered the position of 
guests in the hall. 

It would be very difficult to assign the exact period when the 
surname of Bbook was first used in Morley, but no doubt some 
William or John at the brook, would be the ancestor of the present 
bearers of that common name. In the earlier usages of the name 
it is entered as John of the brook, John at the brook, John above 
the brook, Jtichard below the brook, and Peter behind the brook ; the 
situation of the home of the owner giving his personality. 

The surname of Scarth, a very common name in Morley for 
centuries, is said by Mr. D. Scarth (Morley) to belong to that class of 
names which are of foreign origin ; was brought to England and the 
Orkney Islands by our Norse ancestors — the Scandinavian invaders, 
or Danish Vikings. Like most other names it has experienced many 
variations in spelling, the result of which is that there are two or 
three forms of surname extant, viz., Scarth, Scarfe, Scafe, and I am 
inclined to think Skaife has emanated from the same source. The 
name is said to come direct from one of those ** Skartha," the friend 
and companion in arms of King Sweyn, of the tenth century. Scarth, 
or Skarth, according to the old spelling, means a rocky valley. There 
are several places named Scarth in Iceland ; one hill or valley in 
Cumberland ; one or two places in Lancashire and Yorkshire, called 
Scarth-in-Well, Scarth-in-all ; one place in Lincolnshire, not far from 
Grimsby and Cleethorpes, named Scarths. The nomenclature and 
geographical positions of these places point with unerring certainty 
to their Danish origm ; instance the two last, Grimsby with its "by," 
and Cleethorpes with its *• thorp." It may reasonably be inferred, 
from the position occupied by the men bearing this name, that they 
would be selected as leaders of those expeditions which used to visit 
these shores ; and that, having made settlements and built their " bys " 
or homesteads, they would, in course of time, be called after the name 
of the owner. I think there is abundant evidence to prove that there 
is one class of surnames from which place-names have been derived, 
and another derived from place-names. It is well known to most 
students of history that the Orkney Islands for a considerable number 
of years belonged to the Danish Crown, and that they were early 
seized by the Northmen. Not far from Kirkwall is a place called Bin 
Scarth ; on this estate are -a number of valleys named Howes Scarth, 
Hind Scarth, Cotter Scarth, Scttis Scarth, &c. In 1544, this estate 
was owned by Andrew Scartli, Pothman or Magistrate of Orkney, who 
seems to have inherited it from his conquering ancestor. It appears 
to have since passed out of the family, but was again repurchased by 
one of the descendants in 1800. From the above-named Andrew, 
descended a William Scarth, a Hull shipowner, from whom have 



44 MOBLET OLD CHAPEL. 

descended most of the Scarths in the Leeds and Morley district. To 
a James Scarth, who was bom in 1670, and whose remains now rest 
in the graveyard at Wood Kirk, near Wakefield, I can trace in a direct 
line most of the Scarths in this neighbourhood. 

Scattered throughout the register, the name of Mortimer is met 
with, and Greenwell tells us that legitimately or illegitimately, the 
blood of old Norman knights run in the veins of the possessors of the 
designation, although in some cases the appellation may have been 
assumed. The name appears in Leland's copy of the Boll of Battle 
Abbey, and there seems to be no reason why the appellation there 
given should not be accepted as the correct one. Mortimer, i.e. de 
Mortuo-Mari, or in other words, **of the Dead Sea," but why it was 
bestowed on the valiant knight, we leave for future research. 

Banulph de Mortuo-Mari was one of the followers of the Conqueror, 
and from him derived a branch which held an important position in 
Southern Wales for centuries. From it or the elder branch the 
present race of Mortimers descended. 

Bad^ey, from ** a bailiff, baillie, bailey, or as we now call him, a 
steward, acted as his master's deputy. His place was one of hononr 
and trust. The unjust steward in the parable is in Wickliffe's Bible 
called a baylyf and a baylye." 

Bail had and has the meaning of security. Bailler was an old French 
law term, which signified to secure, to keep in custody, hence bailiff 
and Middle English (13th-15th centuries), one who keeps in ward. 

Fletcher. The fletcher in ancient days, was one whose business it 
was to feather the arrows. To fledge is to furnish with feathers. A 
fledghng is a young bird ready to leave the nest. 

The last surname we shall allude to, and of which many examples 
occur in the Morley register, is the name of Oldroyd, Holroyd, Oldrut, 
etc. D. SoARTH, says the word seems to have had its origin as a place- 
name. Our own district furnishes abundant evidence of this. There 
are place names of this description almost innumerable. There is 
scarcely a town, village, or hamlet, that has not a ** royd," or ** royds," 
in the shape of a farm, field, or a certain part within its boundaries 
known by that name. The name exists in Booth Royd, which speaks 
of a long-ago occupant ; Monk Royd tells of an owner and a religious 
order of things long since passed away ; Harper Royd tells of an 
owner who in all probabihty would be the village harper ; Miller Royd 
would, no doubt, be owned by the man who would grind the corn for 
the village rustics. We might go on enumerating these names almost 
indefinitely — Gill Royd, Far Royds, Low Royds, Hanging Royd, Bin 
Royd, Raven Royd, May Royd. The last furnishes memories of a time 
when the lonely farmstead would be hedged round with hawthorn or 
may. In remote times, some Saxon Thane, Danish Viking, or landed 
proprietor may have measured out a part of his estate by the rod for 
one of his dependents, and it would be known ever after as the Royds. 
When sons and daughters multiplied and herds and flocks increased,

new homes or settlements would have to be made, hence the old one 
would become-** Oldroyd." TEe old people in the course of time 
taking the name of the homestead, would be called ** Oldroyds." I 
have a strong impression that the surname of Ehoi>£s, so numerously 
represented in the West Riding, comes from the same source, the old 
way of pronouncing it, if not spelling it, being Boydes. 

We shall now briefly allude to some noteworthy individuals whose 
burials are recorded in the Register : — 

In 1769, Samuel Clark was buried, and Morley lost a worthy citizen. 
Samuel, when living, was a drysalter, and accumulated money, and he 
was of some importance as a towii's official in days when incorporation 




Autographs of Ministers of St. Mary's, a.d. 1840-88. 

was not in the reckoning. He was chief constable in 1760, and those 
who remember John HoUings will know what an important personage 
the constable was in ancient times. They were, indeed, a terror to 
evil-doers, and the mere mention of his name was sufficient to cower 
the youth of the village. Samuel was Churchwarden in 1766, though 
we are at a loss to know in what his official duties consisted, seeing 
that Morley had no church until 1830. He was also overseer of the 
poor in 1768, long before the Union House at StaincUffe had an exist- 
ence, and in'the days when the poor were kept in their own township 
and looked after by those who best knew their necessities. Samuel 
had also been surveyor of the highways, and to give our readers some 
idea of what the duties were of a town's official, we have a rate-book 



46 MORLEY OLD CHAPEL. 

for 1794, thirty years after the time when Samuel Clark was survisyor, 
and we learn from this insignificant httle hook that there were only 
160 ratepayers, and the rate at' sixpence in the pound realised £86 
15s. 8d. ; the rateable value being £1,883, as against £58,000 in 1888. 
Clark was a man whose opinion had weight with his neighbours ; he 
was given to hospitality, and no doubt left this world amid the regrets 
and lamentations of his many friends. 

Among the entries for 1773 in the Register we find the ** burial " of 
the Rev. Timothy Aldred, a minister who was universally respected. 
He was. an accomplished Latin scholar and an erudite Biblical critic. 
He was Pastor at the Old Chapel for 54 years, and during all that 
time was only once absent from his pulpit. It is said that in 1715 his 
hearers amounted to 450, a number which puts to shame the attend- 
ance in 1888, especially when we consider the increase in population. 
During his ministry the chapel was underdrawn and otherwise 
** restored," and we can well understand how the hard headed Puritans 
who lived in Morley nearly two centuries ago would flock to listen to 
this worthy divine, of whom it is said that he ** approved himself in 
polemical debate to be no less a polished gentleman than an elegant 
scholar and profound theologian." 

During Mr. Aldred's ministry, Joseph Haigh was appomted clerk, 
and following the example set him by his superior in office, he kept to 
his post for half-a-century, though we have no record to show that he 
attended to his duties with the same regularity as his pastor. His 
burial took place, as the Register testifies, in 1776. In the time of 
Mr. Haigh, and until the year 1847, the ministers at St. Mary's 
retained the services of a clerk who occupied a seat below the pulpit, 
and who acted as precentor and gave out pubhc and other notices. 

Besides giving out the psalms and hymns, the clerk made public 
many secular matters in which the congregation were expected to take 
an interest. It was no unusual thing to hear the clerk drawl out a 
notice as follows in his sing-song style : " I am desired to give notice 
that a rate of one shilling in the pound for the township of Morley has 
been allowed by Thomas Blank and John Blank, two of His Majesty's 
Justices of the Peace for the County of York, one whereof is of the 
quorum." In a similar way sales by auction, acts of trespass, and 
town's meetings were duly made known. 

In 1781, we find the following entry in the Register of Burials : — 
Feby. 14th. Lady Loughborough, daughter of John Dawson, Esq., 
aged 36. This lady, whose maiden name was Betty Anne Dawson, 
became the wife of Alexander Wedderburn, who was bom in 1733 ; 
was Solicitor-General, in 1771 ; Attorney-General, 1778 ; Lord Chief 
Justice of the Common Pleas, 1781 ; created Baron Loughborough, 
14th June, 1780. The tombstone of Lady Loughborough is on the 
South side of the Chapel, but the inscription upon it is illegible, and 
it is desirable that steps should be taken to have the letters re-cut, so 
that this memorial of a member of a family to whom Morley was 
greatly indebted should not perish altogether.

The Bev. Tbomas Morgan, nhoae death occurred in the laBt year of 
the last century, must not be passed over without our paying a, tribute 
to his many excellent qualities. He was a native of Wales, and was 
known as the "Welsh Cicero." His abihtiea and virtues have been 
summed up as follows: — "He was well-informed, serious and diligent; 
his matter was sound and appropriate, his language clear and well- 
selected, his demeanour dignified and reverend, his figure majestic and 
venerable, his countenance most expressive; and it is said further, 
that he addressed his congregation in the earnestness of faith, with 
the language of a scholar, with the learning of a deep divine, and the 
manners of a courteous and accomphshed gentleman." This character 
given of Mr. Morgan by one who knew him in the flesh, leaves nothing 
for us to add.

|r"The last of the notabilities, whose names are in the Register, that 
we shall notice is Ben Foster, who was the sexton and chapel-keeper, 
and the son of one who held ofBce as " dog-whipper " at St, Mary's — 
a term applied to one whose office was to keep the chapel clear of stray 
dogs, who at times succeeded in gaining an entrance and would join in 
the responses in a way calculated to upset the gravity and decorum of 
the worshippers. In those days it was customary in many churches

for this functionary to go round the edifice during service, carrying a 
long sta£f, at one end of which was a fox's brush, and at the other a 
knob ; with the former he gently tickled the faces of the female 
sleepers, while on the heads of their male compeers he bestowed with 
the knob a sensible rap. During the time Foster filled the offices of 
sexton and grave-digger, the funerals at the Old Chapel were numerous, 
and the fees from this source formed an important part of his income. 
If there happened to be, as he termed it, '* a slack time,'' he often 
wished that '* somebody as buries at the place would be sharp and die." 
When complaining to the minister, as he often did, that some one or 
other had not treated him as he deserved, he always ended by saying, 
"You know that I am the third man in the chapel; you know it is 
parson, clerk, and sexton ; there is only you, sir, and George Smith 
(the clerk), before me ; — I am sexton ; — you know, I always give you 
the pre-eminence ; but I am the third man." '* Old Ben -' died Feb- 
ruary 2l8t, 1841, aged 78 years. 

From a study of the Register, we think, we may learn one or two 
useful lessons. In reading over the bare catalogue of the names of 
those who for the last two hundred years occupied a place in Morley 
in much the same manner and for much the same purpose as we do, 
we are reminded of the vanity of human ambition ; for, whatever they 
may have been or done, except in a very few instances, all knowledge 
of them individually has gone ; all their acts of generosity and benevo- 
lence have borne their fruit and passed away ; those whom they helped 
in their sad hour of trial are gone also ; nothing material is left to us 
concerning them, and there is no living witness to sing their praises. 
Some, indeed, to whom we have alluded, and' others who might have 
been named, who have been benefactors both to St. Mary's and to the 
town, we cannot willingly forget. If their bones have long since 
crumbled to dust, they have been laid in the God's Acre which sur- 
rounds the Chapel, and the dear old stones which testify to their worth 
remind us of them, their deeds, their hopes, and their fears. 

The history of bygone times as read in our Chapel register, furnishes 
us with many illustrations of talent and piety, and self-denial, all of 
which might advafttageously be imitated now. Of St. Mary's and its 
graveyard, which contain all that remains of many generations of men, 
women, and children of this ancient town, we can say with the poet : — 

** Where soars that spire, onr rude forefathers prayed : 
Thither they came, from many a thick-leaved dell 

Year after year, and o'er those footpaths strayed, 
When summoned by the sonndinp^ Sabbath bell, — 
For in those walls they deemed that God did dwell. 

And still they sleep within that bell's deep sound. 
Yon spire doth here of no distinction tell : 

O'er rich and poor, marble and earthly mound. 

The Monument of all — it marks one common ground." 

The graveyard connected with the old Chapel, cannot fail to be an 
object of interest, when we remember that for one thousand years it 



ANCIENT TOMBSTONES. 49 

has, in all probability, been the resting-place for the remains of former 
inhabitants of this and the neighbouring villages. Before proceeding 
to speak of the tombstones, we would correct an error into which 
ScATCHERD has fallen with regard to non-interment in that portion of 
the graveyard situate on the north side of the Chapel. He explains 
what he calls " this singularity," by references to the writings of 
eminent archaeologists and antiquaries, who, however, differ very 
materially in their conclusions ; and certainly their opinions do not 
warrant us in supposing that any superstitious motives caused the 
inhabitants of Morley to avoid the interment of their dead on the 
north side of the Old Chapel. When the Chapel was taken down in 
1875, it was found that on the north side of the interior there were a 
number of graves having slabs over them, four of these having brass 
plates with inscriptions. These graves must have been at one time 
in the graveyard, for the dates on the inscriptions are prior to 1700, 
and the enlargement of the Chapel, which brought in these slabs and 
graves, did certainly not take place before 1720 or 1730. As we 
wander amongst the graves we are reminded what a parish history is 
beneath our feet. Here we can trace generations of Greatheads, 
Scatcherds, Websters, Asquiths, Smiths, Dawsons, and many other 
well-known local family names. There are many gravestones dating 
from 1667 to the end of the seventeenth century, and these have 
curious designs and rudely-carved inscriptions upon them, and are well 
worthy the inspection of those persons curious in such matters. Two 
of the oldest stones have inscriptions as follows : — 

Heare lieth the body of William Tompson, who departed this life July 5, 1667. 
*' Precions is the death of the sants in the ies of the Lord." — Psl. 11 6 vr. 

Here lieth the body of Stephen Tompson, of Morley, who departed this life the 
5th day of December, in the 62nd year of his age, in the year of our Lord 1675. 
" Whom haye I in heaven but thee, and there is none npon earth that I desire beside 
thee." 

Nothing further is known of these worthies beyond the fact that 
they were father and son, and both were at one time members of the 
congregation at the Old Chapel. Another stone of the plainest 
character records the burial of one of the ejected ministers, as follows : 

Here resteth the body of Abraham Dawson, of Morley, who departed this life the 
19th November, 1671, aged 61. 

Abraham Dawson was a person of some consequence, and possessed 
of considerable means. He was privy to the Famley Wood Plot, and 
was denounced by Ealph Gates as such, but escaped any unpleasant 
consequences. 

Here lyeth the body of Alice, the wife of Samuel Baily, of Morley, who was 
bnried th^22nd day of June, Anno Domini 1674. " Blessed are the poor in spirit 
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven." — Matt. 5 chapter 3 verse.

dent congregations worshipping in Morley and Topcliflfe. He was an

excellent preacher , and having wealth, hQ was in the habit of enter- 
taining other ministers who sometimes officiated. Other gravestones 
anterior to 1700, have inscriptions as follows, but nothing special is 
known of the parties named. 

Here resteth the body of Esther, the wife of Joshua Cbowther, mother-in-law 
of Thomas Dawson, who departed this life April the 22nd, 1693, in ye 84th year of

Here lyeth the body of Maby Beahont, wife of Joseph Beamont, Junior, of 
Batley, and Daughter of Thomas Metcalfe, of Morley, who departed this life Nov- 
ember the 5th, 1689. M.B. 

On the west side of the Chapel is a stone over one John Scurr, of 
Holbeck, who was related to Leonard Scurr, mentioned by Calamy, 
and of whose murder and robbery in 1680, by Holroyd, Little wood and 
others, a full account may be found in WmTAKEB's Leeds >

who departed this life the^day of February Ao. Domi. 1676. Blessed are they 
which do hunger and thirst after righteousness, for they shall be filled. Matthew

ScATCHERD says ** The first and my favourite stone is that over 
Robert Pickering,*' * which reads as follows : — 

Here lyeth interred the body of Robert Pickeringe, Preacher of the Gospell att 
Morley, who accounted himself the meanest servant in the work of Christ, who de- 
parted this life October the 11th, 1680. 

Master of Art, Sidney College, Cambridge. 

Under the west window of the chapel, is a plain stone to the 
memory of another ejected minister, who, after some changes, of 
residence, imprisonment, and loss of sight, abode for some time at 
Wakefield, where he died. It is not known whether he was ipainister 
at the Old Chapel, but the supposition would fill a gap otherwise 
unaccounted for. , 

Here lyeth the body of William Hawden, minister, who departed this life, ye 26th 
day of August, 1699, and of age 88. The righteous hath hope in his death. — Prov.

The name and misfortunes of this worthy man are preserved in 
Calamy's Nonconformist Memorial, On the south side of the Chapel 
is a stone with inscription as follows : — 

Here lyeth the body of Susannah, wife of John Bainbridge, of Rowmes, who 
died the nth Feby., 1687.

* Mr. Pickering was one of the ejected ministers. He was bom at Eippax, near 
Leeds, and was ejected from Barley Chapel, Selby. It is said that " he bore himself 
during the times of persecution, with dignified resignation and a meek fortitude. 
He was a modest, humble, and pious man, courageous in fighting the good fight.'' 



ANCIENT TOMBSTONES. 51 

the conspiracy. Another member of the celebrated Dawson family is 
buried in this graveyard. 

Here resteth the body of Samuel, son of Jobbph Dawson, who exchanged this 
life for a better ye 23rd day of July: Anno. Dom., 1696, aged 20 years and nine 
months. 

Several of the Scatcherd family were interred in the graveyard 
previous to the erection of the mausoleum. A stone near to the last- 
named bears record as follows : — 

Here lyeth the body of Jane, the wife of Thomas Scatchebd, Morley, who departed 
this life, September the 4. Anno Dom. 1691. I will beare the indignation of the Lord 
because I have sinned against him untill he plead my canse and execute judgment for 
mee hee will bring me forth to the light and I shall behold his righteousness. Micah 
the 7th, verse the 9th. 

Norrisson Scatchebd, speaking of his ancestor Thomas, says that he 
was the eldest son of Matthew Scatcherd, an opulent merchant in the 
proudest days of England's glory. Besides his personal property, 
Matthew had handsome real estates at Morley, Birstal, Heckmondwike, 
and Healey. 

In memory of Mr. Thomas Obaisteb, who died May 13th, 1681, andiof his son 
Thomas, who died March 6th, 1702, aged 48. 

The first-named Thomas was a trustee of the chapel, and the last- 
named served as pikeman in Sir Michael Wentworth's regiment of 
militia in 1680. Another brief epitaph attests the burial of the wife 
of Thomas Craister, sen. ' 

Here lyeth the body of Mrs. Elizabeth Craister, who departed this life. Anno 
Domini 1691. 

The list of inscriptions from tombstones dating back to the 17th 

century is completed by the two following : — 

Here lyeth the body of Richard Huntington, son of Richard Huntington, who 
departed this life, the 11th day of September, Anno DoBiini 1679. 

Here lyeth the body of William Robikson, of Drighlington, who departed this life 
the 21st day of May in the year of our Lord, 1695. *' Offer unto God thanksgiving 
and pay thy tows unto the Most High, and call upon me in the day of trouble. I 
will deUyer thee, and thou shalt glorlfie me." Psalm the 50th, the 14 and 15 vers. 

Near the mausoleum of the Scatcherd family is a stone which, for 

more than a century and a half, occupied a position close to the chapel 

on the south side. It bears the following inscription : — 

In memory of Dorothy, daughter of the celebrated Edmund Waller, of Beacons- 
field, in the county of Bucks, who died January 18th, 1717, in the 61st year of her age. 

This lady was a dwarf, and was sent down to Morley for her health. 
She lived in the village many years, at first in a house on Banks' -hill, 
called Yew Tree House, built by a family called Huntington, and pur- 
chased by her from them. She afterwards removed to lodgings near 
the Old Parsonage, and was accustomed to be carried to the chapel in 
a sedan chair. Of Edmund Waller, her father, much might be written. 
He was the poet who wrote flatteries in rhyme, addressed to Cromwell 
and Charles the Second, and who, when the latter remarked that his 
poetical panegyric of the Protector was the best composition of the 
two, excused himself by saying ** that poets are most successful in 
fiction.'*

* BiBSTAL. — The town, station, or place. Bir, from byr, D, a city or town. Stal, 
from stsele, O.E. a stall, station, place, or stead. Byr seems to be an equivalent 
to the O.E. burgh, and has probably been merged in that word in many cases.

* New-hall, or Stank Hall, Beeston. Scatchebd, in his History of Morley, 
writing of the Beestons of ^Beeston, says — '* Next to the Beestons, the family of 
most consequence hereabouts appears to have been the Hodgsons, who at length 
succeeded them in some of their estates." In the year 1613, Christopher Hodgson, 
theretofore of Beetiton, was living at New-hall, which probably he built. This 
Christopher was Attorney to the Council in the North. He married Isabel, daughter 
of Henry Currer, of HolUng Hall, and had two sons— John and Christopher. 
New-hall must have been a residence of some importance, for the remains of its 
architectural grandeur can yet be traced, notwithstanding the parcelling out of the 
dwelling into small tenements. There are the remains of beautiful ceiling mould- 
ings, and old oak staircases, beautifully carved, and an outbuilding some forty yards 
long, at the south end of which is a building, which has every appearance of being 
a private chapel. The name of Stank Hall, was given to it, from a sheet of water 
that nsed to be near the turnpike road, and a little to the south-west of the hall, and 
was formed by a stanch or embankment that was thrown across the beck, stopping 
its course, and a portion of this embankment is still in existence there.

Hewley fand. It is much to be regretted that one whose manus^cripts consisted of 
sermons, critical essays, and some Latin compositions, has not left os some memorials 
of the ancient church with which he was so long connected, and with the history of 
which there is reason to believe he was well acquainted. Mr. Aldred was energetic 
in opposition to Wesley's doctrine of Christian perfection. He departed this life 
August 21st, 1773, and was buried in the Old Chapel graveyard, where a stone was 
erected over his grave bearing the followiog inscription :— 

** Here lyeth interred the Rev. Mr. Timothy Aldred, pastor of the congregation of 
Protestant Dissenters at Morley 54 years, who departed this life, August 2l8t, 
1773, JEtatis, 88th." 

Mr. Aldred had resigned his pastorate in 1763. Neal describes him as having 
450 hearers in 1715. — Scatchbbd's Unrley,

* In the *'good old times" the miniBter retained the services of a clerk, who 
occupied a seat below the pulpit, and who acted as precentor, and gave out pnblic 
and other notices. In those days the duties of the clerk were not confined to 
simply giving out the psalms and hymns, for the art of printing was then in its 
infancy in country villages, and our simple-minded forefathers made public through 
this important functionary, after the sermon, all those secular transactions in which 
the villagers were expected to feel an interest. In this way sales by auction, acts 
of trespass or damage, and towns' meetings were duly made known. A person of 
the name of Stainer was the first chapel clerk of whom we have any record, and 
his immediate successor was one John Rayner. In 1726, Joseph Haigh was ap- 
pointed to the office of clerk, and retained it until 1776, when he died, aged 85 
years. In 1777 Nathaniel Slack was elected, and held the appointment until 1804, 
when he was succeeded by George Smith, who diligently performed the duties of the 
office for upwards of forty years. — Smith's Morley : Ancient and Modern*

* Bey. Thomas Morgan came from Delph in 1763. He appears to have left this 
charge heoanse his people thought that he was not fully Evangelical (it may be pre- 
samed he was a Baxterian), and he created the same feeling among some of his ^ock 
at the Old Chapel. He was nnder no suspicion of heterodoxy as it regards the 
Atonement, for among other tracts he wrote ** An Appeal to the Common Sense of 
Plain and Common Christians on behalf of the Old Christianity of the Gospel," 
which drew the famous Dr. Priestley, then at Leeds, into the conflict through the 
columns of the Leeds Intrllifjencer, *' Mr. Morgan died July 22nd, 1799, aged 80 
years ; after having faithfully discharged the office of pastor here, from October 23rd, 
1763, to September 28th, 1794, when it pleased' God to suffer his power of speech 
and active usefulness to be destroyed by a paralytic stroke." Mr. Morgan's son, the 
Bev. Thomas Morgan, LL.D , and a daughter, the late Mrs. John Wetherill, his 
only children, long survived their worthy purent.

* Watson Scatcherd, father to Nomsson, the historian, was educated in the law, 
under Warren, an eminent speciwl pleader. For thirty years ho practised as a 
barrister, but he was best remembered by our elders as the magistrate who held his 
Court in a parlour at the Nelson's Arms. Here did Wm. Wilkinson, the village 
constable, bring before his " Worship " the refractory drunkard, the ne'cr-do-weel 
of the village, the poacher, and the incorrigible of every class ; and here did the 
magistrate dispense his even-handed justice, tempering it with mercy, to the law- 
breaking neighbours amongst whom it was his lot to dwell. He was a native of 
whom we have reason to be proud,— ever kind to the poor, generous to a fault, and, 
as his son says of him, '* never guilty of an immoral action or even an improper 
expression. Of immorality in every form, he was a severe censor, but ho never 
toi'gave the man who offended his delicacy."

* Samuel Wetherill, trustee of the Old Chapel, was ooe of a family of that name 
who lived many years at Millshaw. He was a well-informed man, remarkably con- 
versant in the ecclesiastical histoiy of the seventeenth century, with a taste for 
antiquities, and an cxcelleut memory, which caused his society to be much sought 
after. Ho was the beau-ideal of a genuine antiquary, for it was no unusual thing 
for him to sx)end a great portion of the night, poring over manuscripts, copying old 
parish registers or copies of documents that had been lent to him, or entering up 
his collection of facts relating to the ecclesiastical history of the county. Nor did 
he, miser-like, keep his acquisitions to himself, for he was ever ready with the most 
kindly good nature to answer all enquiries, and, as our historian informs us, he, as 
well as other antiquarian students, perpetually made use of Mr. Wetherill's useful 
advice and counsel, and to one and all he was alike ready to tell what ho knew, and 
in return to accept any small contributions of information his visitors might be able 
to impart. Unlike some modern enthusiastic lovers of antiquity, he was scrupulous 
in preserving and returning everything that was lent to him ; and hail he possessed 
the faculty for collecting, arranging, and editing his materials, he would, no doubt, 
have left to posterity, many volumes of most interesting matter. A friend says of 
him that " he was still more distinguished for the equality and sweetness of his 
temper, and the propriety and consistency of his conduct." — Smith's Morley,

bur. March 2 

* The Rev. Abraham Hudswell, whose name and teachings are still remembered 
with affection by some of the older inhabitants of the village, commenced his stated 
ministry, at the Old Chapel, on the first Sunday in January, 1817. His congre- 
gation was small, and yet it contained diverse elements, *' the poor members being 
the most evangelical, the richer holding very doubtful sentiments." In the prime 
of life, and with great mental and physical energy, full 6t activity, with a great love 
for his work, he determined, if possible, to win over the whole people to decided 
evangelical sentiments. As a preacher, it has been said of him that " he was a most 
pious and gifted man, a zealous and able preacher of the pure faith, deeply read in 
theology, orthodox in his views, eloquent and impressive in his delivery, with a clear 
metaphysical mind, capable of nice discernment." His plain, earnest, effective 
ministry rallied the congregation, and re-established evangelical sentiments, 
bringing the church once more into union with other bodies of the Congregational < 
order. 

At the latter part of his ministry the congregation had greatly improved, for 
there was one thing the bulk of the people of Morley were remarkable for, namely, 
the extreme strictness with which they kept the Lord's day. It was considered very 
wrong to "go for a walk" fcr mere recreation or pleasure on that day; and, like 
their predecessors the Puritans, they did as little housework^s possible, and cooked 
no victuals, the whole time being devoted to meditation and prayer. We are glad 
to find that Mr. Hudswell, confined his sermons within thirty-five minutes, for this 
is mUch shorter than was th^ case the century previous, when we are told that seven

readily imagine that to children and young persons the services must have been

of twenty deaths ; and the whole Tillage seemed covered with the shadow of death. 
There was the frequent carrying of coffins and passage of funerals through the 
streets ; and we well remember watching the burial of several of the victims in the 
soutii comer of the churchyard, where lune was shoveUed on to the coffins, and the 
faces of the few attendants and the white robes of the clergyman looked ghostlike 
in the flickering glare of the huge pan of pitch which had accompanied the mournful 
procession. Many of the funerals took place after the long summer day had faded 
into darkness. The villagers, in their great alarm, were afraid to strip their dead ; 
hence, numbers were buried in their clothes. AU the old funeral customs were set 
aside, for the last breath was hardly gasped out before the coffin was sent for, and 
in a few hours the corpse was on its way to the graveyard. Sufficient bearers could 
seldom be found to carry it in the old decorous fashion ; and the coffin was, in most 
instances, placed in a cart, behind which a pan of boiling pitch formed part of the 
funeral cortege. As the cases of cholera increased, and the fear and peril grew 
from day to day, the means to counteract them grew also. A committee was formed, 
and a fund of £60 subscribed, which was expended in alleviating the misery of the 
sufferers, and affording aid where human help was possible. Clergy and laity met 
daily, to plan fresh precautions, and to grant relief in the most abundant measure. 
The Earl of Dartmouth, with a commendable liberality, sent several subscriptions 
to the fund, besides contributing £15 to be expended in clothing and bedding for the 
sufferers, and also placing £4 per week for three months at the disposal of the com- 
mittee to be paid to the widows, orphans, and others, who stood in the greatest 
need. We cannot record the sad account of those fearful weeks duriog which the 
pestilence was in our midst, without mentioning the valuable services rendered by 
the Rev. John Morris, at that time minister of the Old Chapel. Throughout the 
whole period of the visitation, the disease was of the most malignant character, 
horrible in its symptoms, and rapid in its destruction ; and, though the deaths were 
not so numerous, in proportion to the population, as at Hunslet and many other 
places, yet it was probably more keenly felt, for each case was known throughout 
the village, and each death was more or less a grief to numbers of old friends, or

* Norrisson Cavendish Scatcherd was bom at Morley House, on the 29th of Feb- 
ruary, 1780, and was the son of Watson Scatcherd, who for thirty years practised as 
a barrister, and served the public as a magistrate. Young Norrisson was edacated 
at Marylebone and Hipperholme Schools, and, graduating at Cambridge, was called 
to the bar on the 28th of November, 1806. He practised only for a very short time, 
and then betook himself to literature and antiquarian pursuits. It was not his social 
position that gave Mr. Scatcherd a name and a place in the annals of his native 
village ; nor the humble simplicity and goodness of his private life ; but his marvellous 
industry and care as a topographical and historical collector. His History of Morley 
contains many most noteworthy facts concerning a district which has always been 
interesting, and is now of considerable importance. To the compilation of this work 
Mr. Scatcherd brought a large amount of assiduous research and patient enquiry, 
extending even to the legendary recollections of *' oldest inhabitants," who related 
to him what they knew of the history of the villRge and district. In addition to 
these sources of information, he hunted up all the facts he could obtain from authors 
and from neighbours, and in this way the History became a labour of life, and a 
labour of love. Our historian also wrote " Memoirs of the celebra'ed Eugene Aram, 
who was executed for the murder of Daniel Clark, at Enaresborough, 1759 ; with 
some account of his family, and other particulars, collected for the most part above 
thirty years ago," two editions; Gleanings after Eugene Aram; and " A Treatise on 
Bridge Chapels, including the history of the chapel upon Wakefield Bridge." Mr. 
Scatcherd's two pamphlets on Eugene Aram were favourably reviewed in the leading 
periodicals and newspapers of the period, much to the satisfaction* of the author. 
Mr. Scatcherd was also a contributor to The GentUman^s Magazine ; to Hone's 
Year and Table Books, and the local newspapers. Mr. Scatcherd was a good speci- 
men of the "fine old English gentleman." In 1851, he had the gratification to be 
elected a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries. He died at Morley House, on the 
16tb of February, 1853, leaving a widow and six children to mourn his loss,— En,

* HeUiwell was a man of singular activity, courage, and sagacity. These traits 
of character he displayed in a remarkable manner on one occasion, when (about four 
o'clock in the morning of February 7th. 1822) he and his family were alarmed by the 
cry of fire, and soon perceived that the stacks in the farmyard were in flames. The 
fire had burnt a stack of clover and one of com, and had reached the threshold of a 
bam and mistal in which were thirteen head of cattle, when the neighbours arrived 
at this critical moment and saved the property from further destruction. A slight 
snow had just fallen on the ground, sufficient for tracing the footsteps of a man who 
appeared to iiave worn remarkable shoes. One of them had evidently been repaired 
with ft clumsy strip of leather on the sole, and both of them left the impression of 
their nails so perfect that not only the' number but the shape of them was manifest. 
The incendiary had clearly come np a field on the north-east side, had tried to enter 
the mistal, and had come into the fold by getting over the fence wall ; no other foot- 
steps were visible. HeUiwell noticed all these peculiarities, and, rousing himself to 
almost superhuman energies, he flew from place to place to restrain the wanderings 
of those who he feared might obliterate the footmarks; and, hunting the enemy 
backward to his house in Neepshaw Lane, and thence to Morley and Beeston, with 
the fleetness of a bloodhound he overtook and seized him, with the very shoes upon 
his feet, before eight o'clock ^n the same morning. John Vickers, the delinquent, 
was a fellow of the vilest and most dangerous description, and he had committed this 
atrocious act simply in revenge, because HeUiwell had pointed out his dweUing to an 
officer who was instructed to make a distress for rent. Yickers was transported to 
Botany Bay, much to the annoyance of our historian, who deemed him worthy of a 
much more severe punishment. — Scatchebd's Morley,

* John HollingB was the village constable for many years, and nntil the West 
Riding police was established, he was an officer of some influence, and the threat to 
*' fetch John Hollings " was sufficient to quell many an incipient " row," and the 
approach of his robust person, stern countenance, and stout blackthorn stick, 
invariably caused young offenders to make " tracks." In trivial cases of assault, or 
summons cases arising out of neighbours' quarrels, John's services were invaluable. 
His practice was to smooth the troubled waters, by speaking kindly to the offended 
ones, and terrifying the wrongdoers into making amends, rather than to " make a 
case " for the magistrates.

* Rev. George Southey, B.A., who was a natiye of Warwick, received his edu- 
cation at Spring Hill College, and remained there six years. He matriculated the 
first year he entered college, and in the second year he obtained his B.A. degree 
first-class, and also passed two Scriptural examinations in Hebrew, for which he 
received two prizes. In May, 1866, he accepted the call to the pasttHrate at the 
Old Chapel. His pulpit ministrations were very acceptable, and lus sermons were 
characterised by earnestness of faith with the language of a scholar. To the great 
regret of his people, his earthly career was cut short by death on the 17th of 
February, 1875, in the forty-first year of his age, and the ninth year of his ministry 
here. A monument to his memory is in the graveyard. — Smith's MorUy,

OPINIONS OF THE PRESS: 

Yorkshire Post, 

Mr. Rayner's work, so carefully edited by Mr. William Smith, is of more than 
passing interest ; of permanent value to the student of Yorkshire county history. The 
book is most profusely illustrated with portraits, landscapes and facsimiles of documents. 
* * * Altogether the work is one which does honour to the memory of its author, and 
the sympathetic care of its no less industrious editor. 

Leeds Mercury. 

This hsmdsome volume. ***** The text of the work shows wise planning. 
We havp the story of the town told in a selves of distinct parts — one relating to the early 
civil history of the district, and others to the ecclesiastical and political history of Pudsey. 
Then follow chapters on etymologies, topographical features, local Government, bio- 
graphical sketches, folk lore and superstition, local customs, manufactures, etc. Altogether, 
the work gives a most acceptable presentation of local history. There are not many places 
in Yorkshire, or indeed in England, which have had so much justice done to their origin, 
development and antiquity, as has Pudsey, now that this volume has appeared. 

Sword and Trowel. (Rev. C. H. Spurgeon.) 

This is a noble volume. How comes Pudsey to be so favoured when many a larger 
place is left unhonoured and unsung? We have a weakness for these topographical 
books : they are the gossip of history, the chit-chat of geography. Better far than tales 
of battle are the records of the peaceful growth of village and township, and the rise and 
decay of families. The annals of our forefathers, the pictures of their antique abodes, the 
descriptions of their manners — all these have a quiet charm about them, and help to make 
hours of leisure, bright, cheerftil and useful. 

Pudsey News. 

It is impossible in a brief paragraph to do more than indicate a few of the treasures 
of this work, which, as a book of reference, is invaluable. * • • The book taken as a 
whole, is highly creditable, praiseworthy and valuable in its contents, and is well printed 
and bound in a very handsome style. 

Suffolk Records. 

The compilation is so good that we doubt whether few parochial histories can 
compete therewith, and the book should be purchased just as a specimen of what a local 
history should be. 

Western Antiquary. 

The typography is excellent, the engravings are above the average, and the woodcuts 
are equally good. Hereafter we shall rank Pudsey amongst the many notable Yorkshire 
towns having a history, and that history well told.

OPINIONS OF THE PRESS: 

"In this (tecond) volume we have the Registers of Calveriey from 1 649 to 1 680, together 
with a History of Uie Church, and copies of the monumental inscriptions remaining in it. 
Many very useful notes of wiUs, entries from other registers, gravestones, &c., have been 
added to the Registers ; and in << Additional Notes," which come at the end of the book, 
will be found much relating to the Calveriey Family, and the ancestry of the poet Longfellow. 
The Longfellows appear to have been settled at Otley as earlv as i486, and to have been a 
family of the yeofnan class Although Mr. Margerison nas collected a mass of inter- 
esting detaik, he has not yet succeeded in making out clearly the missing link, but he has 
come 80 near it that we feel that there is every reason to think he may yet be able to discover 
the direct positive prcof now wanting. 

We spoke in terms of commendation oi the first volume of this work, and the one now 
before us is certainly in many respects an improvement on its predecessor. Mr. Margeri- 
son is doing, and doing well, a laborious task, and one which, when completed, will, we 
trust, gain for him that esteem he well merits." — The Genealogist^ October^ 1883. 

** We reviewed the first volume of the Calveriey Registers some time ago (6th S. ii. 400)- 
We spoke highly of Mr. Margeri8on*s labours at that time, and are bound to repeat what 
we then said. We have, indeed, seldom met with documents of this nature edited with 
such reverend care. The time has passed by when it was thought a sensible thing to 
make fiin of persons who devoted their time to the study of genesilogy. The student oi 
** musty old manuscripts" was once thought of ai a harmless imbecile ; now even the densest 
persons have attained to the notion that there is both pleasure and profit to be gleaned by 
these who will intelligently study the registers of the humblest village church. Genea- 
logists of former days were in some degree to blame for the slight esteem in which they 
were held. When the pedigrees of men of rank were alone thought worth chronicling 
there was much excuse for those who looked upon such studies as time misspent. The 
modem school of genealogists know well that a parish register, to be of any service for 
historical purposes, must be given entire, and that it is as silly to publish excerpts only as 
It would be to treat a chronicle or a poem that existed only in one copy in a similar manner. 
We have read every word of this Calveriey Register, and feel assured tKat it will be found 
very useful for many purposes but remotely connected with the history of Yorkshire 
families. The present volume extends from 1 649 to 1 680. The account of the church is 
short, but sensibly written, and there is a useful appendix, containing information as to 
the families of Calveriey, Longfellow, and several others. The monumental inscriptions 
in the church, and a list of the churchwardens from 1653 ^^ 1881, is also given." — Notes 
and Queries^ Nov. 3, 1883. ^ 

" The second volume of these interesting and valuable registers has just been published 
by Mr. Samuel Margerison. The volume contains the register of baptisms, marriages, 
and burials of the interesting period 1650 to 1680, and the second part of a well-written 

history of this ancient parish church. The register is interspersed with historical 

notes on the wills, &c., of the persons named therein. There are numerous notes at the 
end of the volume on the Calveriey family, as well as other local families of Pudsey, Idle, 
&c., all interesting and valuable to the genealogist and historian. Considerable interest 

has been shewn [lately] on the subject of rfie ancestry ot the poet Longfellow, whose 

ancestors emigrated from this part of Yorkshire to America in the seventeenth century, 
and this volume contains the most complete collection of notes, extending over thirteen 
pages, on this subject, hitherto published. The volume, which is illustrated, also contains 
a valuable index, and altogether it reflects the highest credit upon Mr. Margerison for his 
painstaking and praiseworthy work." — Leedi Mercury. 

As I have a slight overplus of Vols. II. and III.^ owing to the death of some of the 
earlier subscribers, I shall be glad to supply these volumes separately for a short time 
to those who possess Vol. I. only. The first volume wiU only be sold in a set.
