[Note regarding downloading a copy of 'The Deanery of Craven': The 2nd edition (1812) is available from Google Books but the copier did not unfold the pedigrees, thereby hiding the middle sections and making them much less helpful. The 1st edition (1805) may be downloaded from archive.org. That does show the whole pedigree.]
