bullet  General Notes:

Martha married her cousing Charles Bentley who had a dye works. They lived in a delightful house which I visited several times. It was Elm Tree Cottage at Horton Bank Top and was delightful. They had a tennis court which my mother's cousin cut herself during the last war so that it wouldn't be dug up and they were next to the reservoir and golf course. There were five girls and two boys and it was Mabel who went to live near Vancouver about 1930*. Two of the girls and the two sons didn't marry.
From letter written by Harriet Pick (Bancroft 1in 1977).
1891 Census showed they moved from Bradford to Halifax around 1876 and back to Bradford around 1883. His occupation was "Foreman stuff dyer".
1891 Census showing family at Elm cottage, Great Horton, Bradford was foreman stuff stuff dyer, age 43
