I'm busy hunting down Yorkshire Moorhouses at the moment'. I was wondering whether your Jane and Sarah were born in Leeds? I have an Abraham Moorhouse who witnessed a marriage at St Peter's Leeds in 1829. Could this be your Abraham? Did he work for the Church?
I somehow have to work my way from this Jane to the family of James Moorhouse, cutler of Sheffield. James' mother was Mary Sefton, and his son James became Bishop of Melbourne then Manchester. He was Jane's cousin, but I'm not sure how! Jane and her husband had children in Otley.
Does any of this ring a bell with your Moorhouses?
Looking forward to hearing from you,
