"Through the gate in the croft at Black House there are some lumps and hollows. Richard Robinson was a cooper at Black House. He sawed his wood in the croft using a pit saw. That’s what the lumps and hollows are from. John Walmsley’s mother became his housekeeper then she married him."

"John Walmsley married Sara Jane Till who was born at Ellel. The Till family came to live at Crayshaw Farm, Newton. She was a servant at Trough House when she met John Walmsley" (A. Walmsley)
