An Ellinor Fearnley married John Moorhouse 19th Feb. 1750 at Pontefract (St Giles Church) West Riding of Yorkshire.I'm researching the Moorhouse side but am stuck pre-1773 at Pontefract.The Moorhouse family I'm researching ,William Moorhouse ,born around 1750 , was a ship owner,limestone merchant and later his son ,William also went into the profession.The Knottingley and Ferrybridge areas had smaller sloops/sailing ships that travelled the Aire River I think.They were not "Peerage" but were "well off" with a French Governess and several servants.They married into other families that had some money behind them e.g. The "Sefton" family and the "Carter" family of Howden,Yorkshire.Does anyone know of the Fearnley /Moorhouse marriage?
