["Henry Dickinson of Hillay Green in the Parish of Hackness Farmer & Elizabeth Craven of the aforesaid Place in the Parish of Wickam spinster were Married October the 21th by vertue of banns." Harwood Dale BT; the marriage is also recorded at Hackness on 24 Oct. 1740, Hackness PRT] Elizabeth Craven's residence of Hilla Green in the parish of Wykeham places her in the family of Craven that had resided at Hilla Green in Wykeham, of which the head of the family had been named William Craven for three consecutive generations [see the pages on the first and second of these William Cravens]. The third William Craven had just been buried at Hackness on 28 June 1740, apparently without issue. George Craven, the next brother, had a daughter Elizabeth baptized in 1720 who can be identified with the woman of the 1740 marriage. Based on her residence in the marriage record, she clearly belonged to this Craven family.

See the page of Henry Dickinson for details.
