I'm a direct descendant of Jane Hepworth and Thomas Shepley. I know they were both children when they married,during the reign of Elizabeth the First and their first child wasn't born until quite a few years after they married.
Jane was an heiress to the manor of Mirfield, along with her sister Agnes there are a lot of references to it in the "Yorkshire Fines" records. Her father was William Hepworth and I think his father may have been Thomas. I believe her son Richard (and an infant of his) died in the plague which came to Mirfield in 1631.
I'm descended from Richard's sister Alice who was born in 1582. She married John Ramsden.
