I can't find the parents of William Moorhouse who was born in 1749 or 1750 and married Mary Sefton in Pontefract 27th December,1773( where she was born). I think William came from a different town.There are a few Williams shown in the IGI born (e.g.William Morehouse 8th July 1750 at Doncaster, son of Matthew.)..I know our William died July 7th ,1874 in his '85th year'.His wife Mary died in 1827 and their graves are in a family vault at Knottingley.They had 10 children:Benjamin,Michael,Thomas,Robert,James,George,William(who married Anne Carter...our ancestors),Elizabeth,Anne and Mary...all born at Pontefract.Any information about William's parents and residence pre- 1773 would be greatly appreciated. I was told the family crest features a Pelican (which would have been seen around the moors possibly).The next generation lived in Knottingley, Pontefract,Yorkshire.
