Farforth, St Peter, Memorial Tablet
William John Oslear and his wife Frances lived at Farforth House, just below the church, and the rebuilding of St Peter’s in 1861 was partly funded by their executors. The text is becoming difficult to read, but it says:
To/ the glory of/ GOD/ and in memory of/ William Oslear/ who died April XXIXth MDCCCLVIII/ and/ Frances Oslear/ his wife/ who died May XIXth MDCCCLVIII/ each aged/ LXX years
It is said that the family name had been Osley and that the family had been associated with Farforth for over 150 years.
