NOTE: There was evidently only the one Edward christened in either Ilkley orAddingham about this time; he may have been 1 or 2 years old when he waschristened on 19 February 1815. Isabella is evidently recorded wrongly as daughter-in-law insted of daughter. The ages of the husband and wife (Thomas and Sarah) were recorded respectively as 49 (although the 9 is not clear) and 68 in the census return, but then had markings transposing their ages; both ages were obviously wrong and should both have been about 70 when compared with the '41 and '51 census returns.
