Probably:  Crokerise

The second r isn't completely clear but I don't think it's another letter.

Yes BumbleB, I found something similar in a reference called The History and Antiquities of the Deanery of Craven, in the County of York.

ADDED:

Also mentioned - as Crook Rise - in the Diary of Lady Frederick Cavendish, Vol 1.
