STAINCLIFF OF HORSFORTH

 

From his parish register burial entry, Michael Staincliff of Horsforth, in the parish of Guiseley, appears to have been born about 1755. A Michael, son of Eli Stancliffe of Clifton, husbandman, was baptised on 10 August 1757 at Hartshead, where Mally, daughter of Eli Stancliffe of Cock Walk was buried on 12 February 1758 and Mary Staincliff of Bellebridge, widow, was buried on 6 February 1763.[1] Mally may have been the Mary, daughter of Eli Stancliffe, who was baptised on 28 March 1756 at Lightcliffe.[2] A Judith, daughter of Eli Stancliffe, was baptised at Lightcliffe in 1765[3] and a Judith Stankliff married Robert Wood on 5 June 1791 at St. Peter, Leeds,[4] perhaps indicating a move of other members of the family in the direction of Leeds and Horsforth.

 

However, there was also at least one Staincliff couple in the parish of Guiseley in the right period to be Michaelís parents. Samuel Staincliff and Susanna Green were married at Guiseley on 15 April 1750 and Samuel Staincliff was buried there on 18 June 1767.[5]
