Kirkby Malham and Clapham, Yorkshire

From the microfilmed copies of the parish registers, I have found
the following information about the Shackleton family of Kirkby
Malham, and Clapham, Yorkshire. I will appreciate comments and
corrections to this list. I would especially like to hear if anyone
has any info on William, bp 1797 at Clapham as he fits into my own
family traditions and family stories so completely that I am nearly
convinced that he is my ancestor. If anyone has other information --
perhaps you know of his marriage, children, or death in the area of
Yorkshire -- then I will have to give up my conclusions. If he is my
ancestor, he married Elizabeth Rothwell, had three children and came
to Canada and died there a young man. I invite your suggestions.
