Research notes

Foster, Joseph: Yorkshire Visitations (1875), p. 500, citing St. George's Visitation (1612). (This seems to be the only primary source for Alice. Looks like it was added to the 1612 Visitation report in 1619.)

Transcription, as published.

Mary and John Calvert need to be removed as children of Alicia Crosland. She died before they were stated to have been born. Their birth dates are either wrong or they had to have had a different mother.

For your info., the following message appears from Wikitree when you try to save ... Warning: Check the data.

A child's birth date (Crossland-5 born 20 Aug 1552) should not be before a parent is six years old (mother Hawksworth-1 born 16 Aug 1548) . I think there are a few other things that need sorting on this profile too.
