  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 1653 - 1677 (age at marriage of 16 to age 60 at birth of youngest child), there was one Israel Rhodes born in Woodkirk, none were born in the adjacent parishes , one was born in the surrounding parishes (Calverly), and none was born in more distant parishes. The one identified is likely to be correct as the other would be relatively old to have 10 children
    1. 01/01/1666 in Woodkirk, son of Benjamin
    2. 04/06/1656 in Calverly, son of Benjamin
  4. The later descendants of Israel Rhodes (see 4D & 9Ciii) are key to discovering the correct ancestors of Israel Rhodes 1813. The name Israel is the link. Some families with an Israel have not yet been fully defined as I am sure that there are links missing. The parish registers of Woodkirk & Birstall need to be seen & documented
