  1. There were numerous differant spellings of "Rhodes" in the parish registers e.g Roades, Roads, Rodes, Roide, Roids, Roodes, Royde, Roydes, Rhods, Rhodes, Rhoods.
  2. The parish of Woodkirk encompasses West & East Ardsley as well as Woodkirk
  3. For the period 1688 - 1717 (age at marriage of 16 to age 60 at birth of youngest child), there was one Ephraim Rhodes born in Woodkirk, none were born in the adjacent parishes , none were born in the surrounding parishes , and none were born in more distant parishes. The one identified is very likely to be correct.
    1. 20/05/1711 in Woodkirk, son of Israel
