Alice CAPPLEMAN was baptised at the Ebenezer in Union Street eighteen days after her birth. She was the first of eight children born to George and Elizabeth Ann née COLLING. She married George BURTON in 1895 and had four sons with him, losing the second boy when he was just a year old. Alice was only 43 when she died.

‘We shall meet again’
In loving memory of ALICE, the beloved wife of GEORGE BURTON,
died April 19 1918, aged 43 years.
‘A light is from our household gone
A voice we loved is stilled:
A place is vacant in our home
Which never can be filled’
‘With Christ which is far better’
Also, GEORGE their son, died in infancy.
Elizabeth Ann is the sixth of ten children fathered by Thomas HUNTER, who drowned off Bempton Cliffs with John WALLER in 1902. She married Irton farmer Thomas Herbert CARTER at St Oswald’s about six weeks after her father’s demise. Brother John and sister Emily signed the register as witnesses but I expect her mother also attended the ceremony. Mary Ann (née PRIESTMAN) lived long enough to welcome her granddaughter Frances Eileen Carter into the world.
Thomas Herbert went to war and survived but had to start over as a farmhand. He was working for J F STEPHENSON at Scampston Grange in 1921. When the census was taken that year, Frances was an only child.
In 1939 Thomas and Elizabeth were still living in Rillington. (I don’t know what became of Frances.) Records indicate that Thomas, a “farm worker”, would labour in the fields for perhaps another three years. Elizabeth seems to have reached her eighties but I can’t be sure.
Mary Ann STORK is the second of Thomas WEBB’s three wives. Missing from the Shared Tree at the grid IDs is Mary MAULSON – who had also been twice married previously. See her with all three husbands here (where a duplicate Thomas is unsourced).
Born Rhoda KNEESHAW and registered without a mother’s maiden surname being offered, the middle name “May” floats in and out of the available records. Frank is sometimes Francis Henry, so care should be taken when adding information to the Shared Tree.

Tom BARROWCLOUGH is a singleton on Filey Genealogy & Connections, but who placed the stone cross on his grave and declared they would hold him in “ever-loving memory”?
