Hello Marsha, I have never come across these people in any of my databases, except where they turn up on Ancestral File and in the IGI. I do not even have the death registered for Mary Palliser at the time you give for 1877 from the General Register Office. The nearest I have is Mary Palliser who died in the Ripon area between Jan-Mary 1877 age 65. The baptisms for the Grantley people will come within the parish register of Ripon Cathedral, which is not online, but which has been transcribed. I do have a James Palliser with Grantley/Sawley connections about this time, but he married Elizabeth Pickersgill, but he, himself, had no Knaresborough connections, though relatives did. He was of Sawley and died in 1854. Can you tell me how you know your James was of Knaresborough and how you know he married Mary Maxwell? Renia.
