1 Anthony was born at Dunkeswick but, after his marriage, lived first at Horsehouse Woods. I have not been able to locate this place and a local old timer whom I asked also had never heard of it. Later Anthony gave his place of residence as Addelthorp. In modern times there is a farm called Addlethorp Grange about 1 km east of the village of Sicklinghall. There is a wood there called Addlethorp Wood which might have been called Horsehouse Wood previously.
Anthony baptised his children at Spofforth Church since, in those days, there was no church in Sicklinghall. It is not clear why he chose Spofforth since Kirby Overblow is nearer. Perhaps he lived in the parish if Spofforth, which in any case was probably a more substantial settlement than Kirby Overblow.
Spofforth is an ancient village, mentioned in the Doomsday Book as Spawford or village by the ford. After the Norman Conquest in 1066 the Percy family lived at Spofforth when they were rewarded with the gift of the manor. In fact, they were such favourites with William the Conqueror that he gave them 86 lordships in Yorkshire.
In those days where the ruined castle stands today there stood a fortified manor house. The castle itself dates from the 13th century, with many additions in the 14th and 15th centuries. In 1309 Henry de Percy bought the manor of Alnwick in Northumberland and the family moved there, taking the title of Earls and later Dukes of Northumberland. The castle was last lived in 1604.
During the Civil War in the 1640s, many of the castles of the aristocracy were destroyed by Oliver Cromwell and his supporters. Spofforth Castle was among them, and rather little now remains, in part because much of the castle stone was used to build surrounding houses. There would be even less left but for the fact that part of the main hall and undercroft were carved from the native sandstone rather than being built of quarried and dressed stones.
Spofforth church, where Anthony baptised his children, is not the one to be seen today. This was rebuilt in the late 19th century in Norman style to look old and to match the 15th century tower.
A quick search of the churchyard failed to locate any Pullan graves, but we did find the grave of Blind Jack of Knaresborough - John Metcalf, who became famous in the 18th century as a road builder, despite the fact that he lost his sight as a child. He died at Spofforth in 1810 at the grand old age of 92. His epitaph, which can still be read with some difficulty, reads as follows:
Here lies John Metcalf, one whose infant sight
Felt the dark pressure of an endless night;
Yet such the fervour of his dauntless mind,
His limbs full strength, his spirit unfonfin'd,
That long ere yet life's bolder years began,
His sightless efforts mark'd th' aspiring man,
Nor mark'd in vain - high deeds his manhood dar'd,
And commerce, travel, both his ardour shar'd,
'Twas his, a guide's unerring aid to lend;
O'er trackless wastes to bid new roads extend;
And when Rebellion rear'd her giant size,
'Twas his to burn with patriot enterprise -
For parting wife and babes one pang to feel,
The welcome danger for his country's weal.

Reader! like him, exert thy utmost talent given;
Reader! like him, adore the bounteous Hand of Heaven!

He died on the 26th day of April 1840 (or 1810?) in the 93rd year of his age

Sicklinghall goes back to before Doomsday when it was know as Sidingal. In a chronicle written in 1284 it was called Siclinghalle. In 1284 the manor was in the hands of William the Conqueror, who gave it to his friend Robert de Romille, a mighty baron who also was given Harewood and Skipton. It is thought that Rombolds Moor at Ilkley was named after him. Sicklinghall later passed to the equally powerful Vavasours of Hazelwood Castle, near Tadcaster, who also had property at Weston, Otley, where other members of the Pullan family lived.
Not far from Addlethorpe Grange lies Kearby, another ancient settlement predating the Doomsday Book and having links with the Norse invaders. Kearby's link to the Pullan family relates to a supposed witch, Jenny Pullan, who lived in the neighbourhood at the turn of the eighteenth century. It was said that she was rarely seen in daylight and that lights burned in her cottage late into the night. The locals believed that she used to cross the Wharfe in a sieve. In 1845, buried deep in the garden of a cottage in Kearby a curious yellow stone bottle was dug up. It was filled with objects used in witchcraft such as pins and needles, human hair, brimstone and clippings of fingernails. It was immediately assumed that Jenny Pullan was the one who placed it where it was found.
As far as I can tell, we are in no way related to Jenny who, in any case, probably never had children. 
PULLEINE, Anthony (I564)
 
2 We know from the 1851 Census that he was born in East Garston. There are two candidates. George son on George and Hannah bap. 1785, and George son of William and Elizabeth, bap. 1784. The former is marginally nearer the date of birth implied by his reported age in 1851 of 63 (c 66 vs. c 67), so I have preferred that one.
I have been unable to locate a marriage to a woman called Rachel. In fact, I have found only one marriage in Berkshire in the relevant time span of a man call George Wise, and that was in 1801 to an Elizabeth, at Bray.

We also have record of a Sarah Hardacker who baptised a daughter Susanna at Haworth in May 1708. It is probable that Sarah was quite young (mid-late teens) when her (presumably) illegitimate child was born, in which case this puts her birth date at around 1690 (but obviously could be earlier). We can find no likely birth/baptism records for a Sarah born around this time, or in the 10-15 years prior. This makes her parentage almost impossible to determine. She might have been a daughter of Stephen, or she could belong to Jonas (above), or to someone else entirely. We believe that daughter Susanna went on to marry Robert Thornton in 1733 at Haworth St Michael. 

HARDAKER, Stephen (I629)

We have record of a Jonas Hardaker who married Susan Milnes in 1680 at Haworth. This date suggests a birth date of around 1650-60 for Jonas. On that basis he could be another son of Stephen, or could be a younger brother. Given that Stephen's son Stephen named one of his sons Jonas it seems possible that there is a family connection. The only baptism that we can attribute to this couple was that of a male Hardaker (presumably died at birth) in May 1683. 

HARDAKER, Stephen (I629)
 
41 ? (presumably John Hardaker) sonne of Roger Hardaker of Rawdon. HARDAKER, John (I10)
 
42 A "Mr & Mrs Hardaker and child" arrived in Sydney Australia (from London) on the Ophir on 23 Dec 1891. This could be Samuel, Isabella and their son Samuel. Family F560
 
43 A birth date of 1792 for Hannah is highly speculative. She is reported as being 55 (rounded down) in the 1841 census, so born 1782-1786. She is reported as being 70 in the 1851 census, hence born 1781. If we assume a birth year of around 1781/82, and if she was the mother of Helen (I2404) born 1831, she would have been around 49/50 when Helen was born, which is fairly improbable. The only other clue we have is the marriage of Hannah's daughter Ruth to William Barrett and guessing that there may be a family link between Hannah and William. We have come up with a rather dubious link that suggests that William could be Hannah's nephew (son of her brother), and this identified Hannah as being baptised in 1792 at Fewston (about 8 miles north of Otley). This later date obviously works better if Hannah is in fact the mother of Helen I2404, but is very inconsistent with the available data from the 1841/51 censuses. BARRETT, Hannah (I2388)
 
44 A bricklayer at time of Florence's marriage. Died aged 76 (MI). I think he may have had a son Albert who was living in Newbury between 1950 and 1960. Iris Hughes thought his name was Alfred. I cannot find an Alfred Pottinger who matches in the 1901 Census. There is some uncertainty about who were the chilren of Albert and Annie [Wise]. POTTINGER, Albert Ephraim (I133)

50 A clothier aged 58? Also in the house were Benjamin Berry, 20, clothier journeyman, and Mary Berry, 20. STANSFIELD, Thomas (I787)
