I am the Great, Great Granddaughter of Margaret Longster and William Cowling. Their eldest daughter, Rebecca Cowling born around 1830 in Wath, Yorkshire married William Swain of Burley, Yorkshire on 26 November 1850 in the Parish Church of Otley, Yorkshire.

Rebecca's parents' names appear on her Death Certificate, and I also have a photocopy of their wedding certificate.
