I came across a good reference in the Genuki website, Yorkshire, Church Records. The Rev. Heywoods Register of Non-conformists for 1650 -1702 and Rev . Dickinson's Register have Marriages and Births indexed by Patricia Hayward and Baptisms indexed by Tania Willis Johnson. I read all of these today and have picked out all the Moorhouse/Moorehouse/Morhouse names to help other researchers and hopefully save others some time.If you print this out please observe copyright and acknowledge the source as requested by Genuki.I have used their old spelling.
HEYWOOD REGISTER(1650-1702)Northowram(West Riding Yorkshire)
* Mary Moorehouse married John Armitage of Lidiat at Kirkburton Parish on 21 July, 1679

* Mr Moorhouse , Vicar of Rotheran, died Aug.5th, 1690 "an old man, had bin a N.C. 8 years, succeeded Mr Bovil." Note: I assume N.C. stands for 'non conformist'.They kept track of them and made them pay yearly fines if they didn't conform and give money to the church/king.
*John Armitage of Lidyat died age 68 on April 22nd...Note: This is mentioned as the possible father of John Armitage who married Mary Moorehouse in 1679. A Lady Armitage,Sir John of Kirkley's mother died Feb 1695/6 and was buried Feb. 10 ...from Hardgar Hall at Hardgar Church.
