Kirkbrights/ Kirkbrides of Pateley Bridge Yorkshire

Looking for the parents and siblings of one Benjamin Kirkbright, born Bewerley, christened at Pately Bridge in 1839. Benjamin, a master shoe- and boot-maker, moved to North Yorkshire with his wife and children, prior to 1881 census. His parents may have been John Kirkbright and Ann ??
per IGI.

The area around Bewerley/ Pately Bridge seems to have spawned quite a few people named either Kirkbright or Kirkbride, though it is rarer elsewhere in the UK.

Can anyone steer me in the right direction?
