I haven't been able to validate the Prest-Scarthingwell connection. A William Prest of Leeds, Yorks, married Susan Wells in 1803 and, according to his obituary, took up residence in Scarthingwell Park, not Hall.
The reference in the I.G.I. to a William Prest being christened circa 1798 in Scarthingwell seems to be incorrect. I have scoured the parish records for Saxton-in-Elmet and can find no match.
Does anyone have any further information??
