Adel, St. John the Baptist Monumental Inscriptions

The below is the forward from the Publication Booklet – The actual inscriptions are now contained in the AWFHS Research Database.

FOREWORD

The Monumental Inscriptions for the Parish Church of St. John the Baptist, Adel are made available thanks to the co-operation of the Rector of Adel Church and the great efforts of a good many members and volunteers of the Wharfedale Family History Group.

I would like to make a special mention to all those who worked tirelessly alongside Joan Emery in the initial three years of transcribing the grave stones under difficult weather conditions. I would also like to pay a special tribute to Stephen Miller who undertook, more recently, a large section of the transcription and for his excellent work in producing the computer indexing and publication of the final document, which you are now reading.

I cannot recall all the volunteers who have helped in this project but would like to thank David and Peggy Allen, Les Wolstenhulme, Susan and John Hartley, Fred Lister (who forfeited his cricket matches on occasions) and Freda Lawson. My apologies to anyone who has not been specifically mentioned, but thanks too, without you this mammoth task would not have been completed.

Gerald Lawson, August, 1998.

Since the publication of this index of gravestones within Adel Church it has come to light that earlier work on the transcriptions was undertaken by Rector Draper in 1908. I am very grateful to Mrs V. Crompton who holds the only copy of this work for bringing to our attention a few minor discrepancies in the publication. There is one total omission which has been added and marked § but otherwise the amendments are listed to correct the transcription carried out between 1995 and 1998.

Addingham Wesleyan Methodist Chapel Monumental Inscriptions.

Below is the introduction from the publication booklet, the inscriptions from which have now been uploaded to the AWFHS Research Database.

FOREWORD

The Wharfedale Family History Group originally transcribed the Addingham Wesleyan Chapel Memorial Inscriptions in 1981/1982 but did not publish them at that time. I have recorded the Addingham Wesleyan interment registers this year and as a result of the knowledge gained from that exercise have also upgraded the M.I. transcriptions up to the present time. The original transcripts have been re-worked to show the plot numbers and resultant locations with a little more accuracy. In this edited version, Verses… etc that have no genealogical value are omitted.

HISTORY OF METHODISM IN ADDINGHAM

Notes  prepared in 1986 by the late Mrs Kate Mason, Reynard Ing, Addingham Moorside.

Religious dissent in Addingham started in the mid seventeenth century with a small group of Quakers who met at Upper Gatecroft and at a meeting house at Farfield Hall, where they had a burial ground.  It was however to be the followers of Wesley, and the Haworth parson, William Grimshaw, whose preaching inspired many local men such as Tom Lee and Tom Illingworth to follow their example.

Preaching on the Methodist principles started about 1744, and in 1748 a society of Methodists was started in the village. By 1788 the society was able to build a chapel.  The society grew as the population expanded so that: by 1808 an enlargement was necessary.  The same year Addingham became the head of a new circuit.  The chapel was enlarged again in 1834,  since when its appearance remained unaltered until its final closure in 1973, when the school, provided and managed by the Methodists, was converted into their chapel, and the former chapel was sold and converted into flats.

The burial ground was provided by George Oates Greenwood a local landowner, who lived at Netherwood House, just over the parish boundary in Ilkley. The Greenwood family Mausoleum stands in the centre of the burial ground. Mr W. Lemmon states that the earliest burial entered in the Register of Burials is not until 1844. *

Besides the Wesleyan Methodist society there was an Independent chapel, which seems to have had only a short life, and was probably Congregational in persuasion. The Primitive Methodists started preaching here about 1821.  Their first chapel was above the Oddfellows Hall (now demolished) on Lodge Hill, but they held many open air meetings. In 1913 they were given a plot of land in Main Street.  This chapel was closed in 1955) and later converted into the Village Hall.  The Methodist Reform Chapel, Mount Hermon, was built in the 1860s and still has a faithful following. How far these other sects used the Wesleyan burial ground is not clear until further research is done on the Methodist records at Sheepscar in Leeds.

For a fuller account of the Wesleyan Methodists in Addingham reference should be made to              ” Methodism in Addingham” by W. Lemmon.

* The first interment was that of Thomas Beck, Stonemason, in January 1844.

Addingham St. Peter’s Monumental Inscriptions

Members of the Wharfedale Family History Group transcribed the Memorial Inscriptions of St Peter’s Parish Church, Addingham in the summers of 1981 & 1982. These transcripts for the past fourteen years been retained in the Groups’ research records.

In preparing these transcripts for publication, for clarity and reduction in volume,      I have edited the original transcripts and excluded lengthy verses which have no family history significance.

ABBREVIATIONS

It should also be noted that I have introduced some abbreviations such as ILMO = In Loving memory of. IMO = In memory of, IR = In remembrance. IARO = In affectionate remembrance of, wdtl = Who departed this life, HLTBO = Here lies the body of ,  HLITBO = Here lies interred the body of .

Skipton, Christ Church, Gravestones (Monumental Inscriptions)

The gravestones at Christ Church Skipton were removed from the gravesites by Skipton Urban District Council. In the 1960 to facilitate cutting the lawns all but 22 of the memorial stones were removed from their original site and placed along the wall side from Craven Street to Keighley Road.

I started at the Craven Street side and worked my way along them to the Keighley Roadside of the graveyard. These I have called section A. The few stones that are remaining in situ I have called section B. The memorial stones without inscriptions on went up to the top of Short bank Road in Skipton to build a bungalow. I had intended to include any interior inscriptions from Christ Church in this list unfortunately each time 1 have visited Christ Church it has been locked up. 1 have though managed to talk to one of the Churchwardens who informed me that when Christ Church was built it was designed with vaults for burials.

Plan of Christ Church Graveyard

Only one body was ever placed in the vaults and this was the son of a local mill owner. The father had his son buried in a glass coffin and he used to visit his son until his own death. The family apparently forgot about the boy in the coffin until one day they learned that the verger at Christ Church was making extra income by showing visitors the boy in the coffin. The family soon stopped this by having the coffin covered in lead.

Also, at Christ Church Skipton is to be found the body and tombstone of the “Tom Thumb” real name Edwin CALVERT. Edwin CALVERT weighed 23.51bs and was under 36ins in height. According to the Church Warden the coffin was only 21 ins in length.

By Robert William Parish Project Organiser Skipton Area – Keighley and District Family History Society. The Monumental Inscriptions are in the process of being added the AWFHS Research Database.

Raikeswood Prisoner of War Camp

Zoom presentation by Alan Robert

29 Attendees

Originally a training camp for Bradford Pals and other Regiments (January 1916). Huts were given names like “Buckingham Palace” and “One Step Nearer”, pathways were given familiar names like “Downing Street” and some were given derogatory names. The camp was built to hold 1200 people. When it later changed to a Prisoner of War Camp, at its height, it held 564 officers and 137 orderlies (686 Prisoners of War); total number of admissions was 989.

Alan gave thanks to Rob Freeman who created and provided animation for the talk. So special was the Skipton camp that some of the prisoners wrote a book of their memoirs ‘Kriegsgefangen in Skipton. 60 different officers contributed, illustrated by Doppelhopf. A copy of the book is available online. It is currently being translation by Leeds University.
