I think that was it. Awesome. It downloaded fine. Thanks a million. I very much appreciate it. I'll be sure to keep it this time & your message so I can use it if I'm in this pickle again. I made a dropbox account myself but was unale to find the file. So I thought I'd ask you again. Say, I know I have next to no chance of finding anything anywhere without a name, but my James Bond died in 1721, death record says his mother was born in Italy. How would I go about confirming this or eliminating it? I'm sure his folks weren't quaker when they were married, which took place about 1640. If they lived in the parish of Calverley, what kind of church or faith would they have been likely to be members of or affiliated with? Any thoughts? Still working on the Bond line.

The parish of Calverley covered a very wide area!
St Wilfrids being the mother church collated the records for the various 'Chapels of Ease'.

[ http://www.calverley.info/noncr.htm]
First covers conformist records,second non conformist records.
When it comes to religious beliefs a good start is here:

Does Calverley cover Bolton in East Riding? Or is that in another parish? I know my Bonds lived there too. Would there be a hearth tax for there?

Bolton East Riding?
Calverley is 6miles from Bradford/Leeds in the West Riding of Yorkshire.
(There is a Bolton near Idle within Bradford)

I take it you have a limited knowledge of Yorkshire.

There's a wikipedia article that says Bolton's in East Riding, of Yorkshire. Just going by what I see. Is there anything for Bolton specifically? I know my Bonds were there about 1695.

The Bolton (East Riding) you found is @40miles away from Leeds on the East Coast.
I still believe the Bond named you found in Bolton are from the village located near Idle/Tong in Bradford.
[Try doing a search for 'Bolton Bradford']

Will try that, thanks a bunch. Figured he'd have lived in the general area of Bradford, perhaps his parents/family did too. I'll do some searching. You're a big help. Can't thank you enough. But thanks.  :)

One last query. You said the Bolton/Boulton I want is between Leeds & Bradford. But when I look at a map, I can't find it. Where is it in relation to Tong, what direction & how far? What are the towns due east, west, north & south of it? Trying hard to find it but not having any luck. And is Bolton upon Dearne a completely different Bolton?
