Joseph Tarbotton Leeds or Bradford 1820 - 1875 +
I'm a Tarbotton, really, ( dont' ask just yet).My g grandfather* settled in Bradford when he came out of the Army (ca 1870, I think), but my guess is that he was from Leeds way.

The name ought to mean Thor's Valley - there are a lot of Bottons around in Yorks,and Tar = Thor, perhaps
* He was famous in a small way as the 1st trained PT Instructor in thre British Army, and therefore a founder member of the Army Corps of Physical Education.
