bullet  General Notes:

Farmer all his life. 1841 Census shows him living at a farm at Wins Delf, Ingrow which is a village on the outskirts of Keighley with a wife and 8 children.
1851 census at same place with wife and 4 sons.
1861 census names farm at Unwins Delph farming 13 acres with wife 2 sons, a daughter in law and a grandchild. a farm of 13 acres in those days would have been barely enough to support a family, so it must have been quite likely that he had some other occupation, which is not listed.
1871 census shows he and Hannah living alone in a house at Bocking and his occupation is shown as "small income from mortgage".
Both James and Hannah were buried at Haworth church and a gravestone is still there which also shows other members of his family in the same grave.
