Arthur was born about 1667. He was baptised on 26 March 1667 at Brompton by Sawdon, Yorkshire, England.[1] He was the son of Arthur Cayley and Elizabeth Shipton. He studied at Trinity Hall, Cambridge, England. He was ordained priest at Durham in 1691. He was Vicar of Allerton, Yorkshire, England from 1701 to 1726, and of Brompton by Sawdon, Yorkshire, England from 1714 to 1728. He lived at the Low Hall, Brompton by Sawdon. He passed away before 1746 - probably in 1728 when his holding of the living of All Saints, Brompton by Sawdon came to an end.[2]
