Well, this looks likely as the family my wife is connected to had relatives with slaves and plantations in the West Indies, but as I say I shall need to do an extensive check. Seems a big coincidence though.

Do you have any more info on the following;

- Mr. Edmund Knowles Binns; Louisa Crossley's master. If you found a household census it may list Elizabeth as a lodger?
MR AND MRS BINNS ONLY MARRIED THE PREVIOUS YEAR, 1882.  AND THAT'S A WHOLE OTHER STORY!  THEY MET THROUGH A LONELY HEARTS COLUMN, AND HER BROTHER HIRED HEAVIES TO TRY AND PREVENT THE MARRIAGE!  HE WAS A WELL KNOWN SOLICITOR AND SHE WAS AN HEIRESS.

I didn't even know that they had a 'Lonely Hearts Columns' back then! ;D

Well, you've definitely got some interesting family stories to tell. It would be very ironic if that was a prayer stool in Elizabeth's picture  :P

My Crossleys are as follows: Isaac Crossley b c1684 Penistone No record of wife children Ann (Hannah) b 1716 Penistone, Benn b1726 Penistone m Hannah Gillam 10.12.1750 Penistone daughter Ann (Hannah) b Penistone 1751 son Leonard Crossley b1767 Penistone (No record of father) m Rebecca Senior (b Silkstone 1781) 18.10.1792 Silkstone ( I am suspicious of the birthdate, though just about possible a marriage at 12 is unlikely even in this era) They had 9 known children Hephzibah (B1795) Mary (b1797) George (b1798) John Senior (b1799)Henry (B1801) Susannah (b1801)Joseph (b1803) Richard (b1806) Francis (b1808) The only known birthplace is Susannah , and it is Silkstone.
A search for Crossley on this site will provide over 60 links, many of which are relevant. Apparently Susannah lived at WaterHall  nr. Penistone, and there is some connection to the Crossleys of Halifax. The Crossleys of Water Hall had plantations in the West Indies. I hope this is helpful.

I am not sure what the connection is but I'd be happy to look into it.  I am not sure if we've corresponded before, many years ago, by Snail Mail!  I have a tree drawn going back to Leonard and Rebecca but never made a connection to my own tree. I have a brief note about a possible relationship of this family to the Halifax Crossleys.  My own line goes back from my elusive great great grandmother Elizabeth Crossley (1851) through , Charles Crossley, John Crossley and Mary Thickett, John Crossley and Martha Raynor, John (1728, Langsett) and Ann, then his father Benjamin.  The slavery connection comes from Benjamin's other son Isaac  of Netherhouse.  His son Benjamin (1774) went to Jamaica.  That family is fascinating.  If you want to get in touch, please PM me.
