Margaret Hopkinson/Richard Royd Information

In 1577, John Royde was party to an Indenture with John Hopkinson, of Higgin Chamber, in Sowerby, by which the former conveyed to John Hoile, of Blackshaw Clough, Michael Foxcroft, of Kebroyde, and Thomas Royde, of Over Baitings, all lands, tenements, etc., lying on the south side of the highway between Ripponden and Baitings, then in the occupation of the said John Royde, George Ryley and Robert Fielden. The intent of this was to provide for the marriage of Richard Royde and Margaret Hopkinson, and, in addition, John Royde, the same year surrendered the reversion of 12 acres to Margaret, and also to Richard and Margaret, a moiety of Beestonhirst. The marriage duly took place at Halifax, November 10th 1578, as appears by the Register there.
