Sheila Coe says:
Edward Rushworth's pedigree [Since alterd in accordance with the following], showing descent from Anthony Rushworth of Kildwick,shows Thomas of Ramsgill, 1704-71 with children Major (1740), Mary (1743) and Anne (1748). I believe these three were children of Thomas of Ling Park (1713-49), and, moreover, that they had a sister, Elizabeth, (baptism not found) who was the one to marry Zachariah Holmes at Ilkley 22.2.1757, rather than the one suggested in Collier's'Ilkley'. My reasons are these:

Thomas of Ling Park had a brother named Major (1715-63), showing the name was in use in this branch. It does not appear in the Kildwick/Ramsgill branch.This Major had a son named Major, who was a cabinet maker of York, and he in turn had a son, Major,christened 1770 in York.

The Major Rushworth born 1740 left a will, proved 1816 at York (vol.160 p.135) He is described as 'gentleman' of Leeds. He mentions his sister mary, wife of Joseph Lawford of Bingley, plumber & glazier, nephew Major Brown of the City of York (this is his sister Ann's son; she mar. Matthew Brown, 1771 Ilkley) ), niece Elizabeth wife of Benjamin Robinson (no marriage traced but sister Ann did have a daughter Elizabeth) He names Hannah, wife of John Rothwell jun. of Leeds, though he does not call her 'niece', but sister Ann had a daughter Hannah, and Hannah Brown mar. James Rothwell 1803 Leeds.

Major also makes two bequests to people in the Hampsthwaite area: John Rushworth of Darley in Forest of Knaresborough, Cordwainer (he was not the one who mar. Hannah Holmes, tho he mar. another Hannah, Hannah Fawcett, in 1772.) The other beneficiary was Ann, wife of Thomas Umpleby of Maynard in Forest of Knaresborough, tailor.. (Ann Rushworth mar. Thos. Umpleby 1808 Hampsthwaite) The Hampsthwaite Rushworths have long been a puzzle to me; this will makes it possible to fit them into a rudimentary tree, most likely stemming from the George who mar. Anne Thackeray at Otley in 1742. This George was son of George/Anne Baines, chr. 17
