 St. Peter, Leeds, parish registers (online at www.ancestry.com). George is said to be of “Harwood” parish and Isabel of Moortown. A Stephen Procter of “Mil hill” had a daughter Isabel baptised at St. Peter, Leeds, in 1650, but she was buried in 1650/51.
 Harewood parish registers (online at www.ancestry.com). The couple are named as “Joshua Lowrance & Rachil Renton”. However, from other records, this was evidently the marriage of Joseph Lawrence. For example, the baptism entry for Elizabeth Lowrance in the Tadcaster parish registers in 1778 states that her father was “Benjamin Lowrance of Tadcaster Taylor Son of Joseph Lowrance of Wetherby Joiner by Rachel his Wife Daughter of Samuel Renton of Lofthouse near Harewood Farmer”.
