Email from Rodney Mason <> 29 October 2011:

I have come up with Sarah Johnson's parents as Robert Johnson b abt 1821and Ann born about 1824. Their daughter Sarah who was born in Amcotts in Lincolnshire was a servant in a vicarage in Bilton near Knaresborough in 1881 just before she got married, but I expect you knew all that. How William Longster met Sarah is anybodys guess as Pateley Bridge is a fair way away.
