Note from "Ilkley: Ancient & Modern", page 235, RUSHFORTH: "Thomas b. 1712, of Ramsgill, and Little or Lower Woodhouse, yeoman, carrier, died 1771." - This date of birth is wrong, and so is the rest of the earlier family tree at this source. Also note the variation in place names explained at page 224: "CRAWSHAY. - Richard, of Woodhouse, sometimes called Crawshay after him, buried May 19, 1676. Helena, his wife, was buried Feb. 15, 1675.

Evidently Sarah's youngest daughter, Ann, was baptised on 5the June 1748, which
suggests that Sarah probably died in childbirth. Ilkley Parish register simply
records the baptism as "Daughter of Thomas Rishworth of Ilkley".
