It was only after I'd sent the previous post that I realised I'd overlooked the real clincher in Redmonds. He says that the Kayes of Lane were mentioned in manorial as well as parish records. Although Holme, Austonley and Upperthong were in the same parish as Almondbury they weren't in the same manor. There's absolutely no way he'd transpose references from Wakefield manorial rolls into Almondbury.
As he says Kaye Lane had come into existence by about 1717 it's not surprising that whilst the old name was still in use by the middle of the century it had dropped out of use a generation later so Edmund is at Kaye Lane, not just Lane.
If you look at the CDs you'll see that there are a few Edmund Kayes across the generations. At least one of them, I noticed, was given as being at Castle Hill in the C17th. I'd guess that the name kept being reused in the same line. This may help you reconstruct the earlier generations.
I'm going over towards Almondbury this morning. I'll take some pictures. If you send me an email at i g o d d a r d (at) n i l d r a m (dot) c o (dot) u k I'll put them in the reply.
