Waterhouse of Thornhill/Netheton/Leeds/Otley, Yorkshire, England

I am looking for information on any Waterhouse from Thornhill, Netherton, Leeds, or Otley, Yorkshire, England.

The farthest back I have is a Laurence/Lawrence Waterhouse, b. Jun. 27, 1583, in Otley, Yorkshire, England. His siblings were (all born in Otley that I know of): James (b. Oct. 11, 1584); William (b. Sept. 12, 1589); Elizabeth (b. Jan. 23, 1592; Jennet (b. Feb. 16, 1594); possibly a Thomas Waterhouse; there also was a Simon Waterhouse living in Thornhill around the same time.

Laurence died in Aug. 1613 in Netherton, Yorkshire, England. I don't know who he married. His children are listed as: Philip, Alice, Edward, and Elizabeth. My ancestor, Edward, was b. abt. 1604, in Netherton, and married Feb. 7, 1631, in Thornhill, Yorkshire, England, to Grace Walker (Possibly of Leeds). I have seen that Laurence is sometimes a name that comes up in the early Waterhouse family trees, also, I am wondering if there is a connection to the Simon Waterhouse, who died in Oct. 1612, in Thornhill. He had three sons that I know of: Anthony, Samuel, and Jeremy Waterhouse. Since Edward eventaully lived in Thornhill, I am wondering if he chose to live there because he might already have had a cousin (Simon Waterhouse) there?

Any info on this Waterhouse family would be really appreciated.
