William Stables (b. before 1655, d. 1720 Hemsworth)
William was the eldest son of William Stable (Junior) of Allerton Bywater and seems to have moved to Hemsworth around the time of his marriage to Sara Ostliffe of that parish, in 1685. He did not leave a will but there is a surviving deed, dated 1713, showing his sale of a significant holding of land and property at that time.
The deed also reveals that he had contacts/acquaintances in Barnburgh at the time, where his brother, Henry Stables was living.
This is a full transcript of the memorial held at the Registry of Deeds in Wakefield for a transfer of land and property in Allerton Bywater, Hemsworth and Kirkby to Thomas Vincent of Barnburgh Grange and Philip Waterhouse of Braithwell.
