The Northowram Registers

Popish Recusants

***** continuation of page 157 from Toleration act ****************


It would be interesting to continue the search from 1700 to
1800, but it does not come within the period of this Register.
I will conclude my notes from the West Riding Sessions Rolls
with another list of Roman Catholics.
Mrs Catherine Palmes a Roman Catholick how living at the
house of Mr Thomas Waterton of Walton in ye west rideing hath
by undue means and practises got into her custody Ann

her from her mother, ordered that she be given up.
