Is it the marriage to Elizabeth Rothwell in 1712 that you think is a possibility?


Elizabeth's abode was Graine. There was no abode for Christopher.
There was a baptism of a Christopher Horabin at St. James, Haslingden in 1692.
Son of John Horrabin.
Abode; Priestentakes.
Notes: BTs has Christopher son of John Horrabin of Grayne
Register: Baptisms 1683-1711; page 15.
Grane is in the west of Haslingden, between 2 and 5 miles from Constable Lee which is on the east side of Haslingden. Grane is bleak moorland.
 Priestentakes isn't a place I recognise.

Priestentakes is I assume Priestentax which was above Heap Clough just of Grane Road - there is a quarry up that way.
