BURIALS

There are a host of burials documented in the Grinton Parish registers. Unfortunately, unless it's blindingly obvious due to a unique name, without an age at the time of death it's virtually impossible to tell which person it is.

So, the burials are documented here until they find their real home:

10 January 1641 George Close

01 February 1645 Elizabeth Close of Grinton

14 June 1649 Richard Close of Harkerside

26 November 1650 Margaret daughter of Elizabeth Close of Isles. Not clear whether Elizabeth is a widowed wife, or whether Margaret is illegitimate.

03 October 1651 Simond Close

19 October 1653 Elizabeth wife of William Close of Whitaside. There is a William Close around but he appears to have had a son in 1657, which is after this one died.

10 September 1698 Mary Close of Whitaside

For the time being we'll stick with Goodman until more proof comes along.
