Is this James Knutton?
James seems to have turned up in the Mytholm Bridge area with no indication of where he came from.
There were Knuttons in Thornhill parish from late C16th but there are no baptisms in late C17th & early C18th there although there are a couple of marriages in the early C18th and later burials of men who must have been born in this period.
However, I've found a family of Nuttons in a transcript of Emley baptisms which seem to provide a candidate for James:
Gulielmus filius Gulielmi Nutton22 Sep 1716
Josephus filius Gulielmi Nutton23 Nov 1718
Thomas filius Gulielmi Nutton16 Dec 1720
Jacobus filius Gulielmi Nutton06 Apr 1723 (Jacobus = James)
IGI also has these.
There's also a possible daughter:
Sara filia Gulielmi Newton02 Oct 1714
This is the only mention of William Newton so there's a good probability that he's the same as William Nutton.Newton is an established name in this area which might be a reason for an unfamiliar name being given this spelling.
I don't have a transcript of marriages for Emley but there are several IGI member submissions of a marriage of William Netwon to Sarah Gibson on 2 Nov 1713 at Emley.That would fit with the daughter being named after the mother, just as the first son was named after the father.Unfortunately as Newton is an established name there are other William Newton marriages such as William Newton to Sarah Heyward on 4 Mar 1713 at Almondbury which is also consistent with the mother & daughter's names matching.
On the whole, however, the Emley marriage seems more likely as Emley is closer to Thornhill parish and especially to Flockton where some of the Thornhill Knuttons lived.
It seems possible that we might be able to bridge the gap between Mytholm bridge and Thornhill.
