Hello Lyn,

One of my great great grandfather's sisters was called Susanna Parish. According to the baptism records of St James' in Silsden she was born in Steeton on 31/07/1841 so she could be your great grandmother. My great great grandfather was John Parrish (born 03/02/1837) and, according to the 1841 census, his parents were James and Martha Parrish.

There is a record of a baptism for James Parish, son of William at Coley church on 22/04/1798. So possibly my great great great great grandfather is called William. The baptism date doesn't quite fit with James' age being given as 40 on the 1841 census but it's close enough I think. I've only just learned about this today so I'm going to investigate further.

If you think we're barking up the same family tree drop me a line and I'll let you know anything else I find out.
