I have found an early Moorhouse/Moorehouse & Armitage connection but will need to check if linked to our family. MARY MOOREHOUSE married JOHN ARMITAGE of Lidiat at Kirkburton Parish 21st July,1679.He may have been the son of John Armitage of Lidyat(friend of Rev. Heywood), who died April 22nd 1700 aged 68.There is also a mention of Lady Armitage , Sir John of Kirkley's mother from Hadger Hall , who was buried Feb. 10 ,1695or 1696.These people are all shown in Heywoods Register of the "non conformists" who held on to their religious beliefs.See message on "Moorhouse" names 1650- for the details and reference for more Moorhouse names.Heywoods registers are on the Genuki website , Yorkshire, church records.
