[1] His death certificate gives his age, with unusual precision, as 49˝ years. He may have been the William, son of Hugh Quarmby of Binns in Linthwaite, who was baptised at Slaithwaite on 22 Nov 1788 (Almondbury parish registers and Slaithwaite parish registers, available online at http://www.ancestry.com).

[2] William's death certificate gives the date as 30 May 1838, but the entry for his burial in the Sowerby Bridge parish registers (West Yorkshire Archive Service, WDP93/1/25) gives the date of death as 29 May. He was buried on 3 June.

[3] Halifax parish registers (West Yorkshire Archive Service, WDP53/1/44). Mary’s surname is spelt “Berrey” in the marriage entry.

[4] Mary’s place of birth is variously given as Deanhead (National Archives, 1851 census returns, Warley, HO 107/2300, fol. 343), Sla[i]thwaite (National Archives, 1861 census returns, Warley, RG 9/3291, fol. 5) and Halifax (National Archives, 1871 census returns, Warley, RG 10/4410, fol. 14). One of the witnesses at the marriage of Mary to William Quarmby was a John Berrey. The baptism on 26 Feb 1792 of a Mally, daughter of Joseph Berry of Scammonden, clothier, is recorded in the parish registers of West Scammonden (Deanhead) (West Yorkshire Archive Service, WDP107/1).
