Died tragically with wife and daufhter, Jane whilst crossing the ford
at Boothwood by horse and cart during a storm

"At the end of a stormy week in the winter of 1881 there was a tragic occurrence on the moors above Rishworth, which no one saw, but from evidence discovered at the inquest, the whole grim tragedy could be pieced together. Mr. John Kenworthy, who
lived at Stott Hall farm on the steep hillside of the valley, opposite the Derby Inn, in addition to his farming acted as general carrier to and from Halifax. It was on his return journey from Halifax, on Saturday, November 26th., when his wife and
nine year old daughter were with him in the cart, that he had to battle against the raging storm and drenching rain.

The horse had become restive and had damaged the front of the cart, somewhere between White Hart and Derby Inn. This had added to the driver's difficulties, and had delayed his progress. It was 11 o'clock, when they reached the Derby Inn and Mr.
Kenworthy delivered a parcel. He could not be persuaded to spend the night there, but borrowed a lamp and set out down the zigzag lane that led from the high road to cross the ford in the stream below - the Booth Dean beck that had become a swollen
torrent. For pedestrians there was a plank bridge but for vehicles merely a banked up crossing of stones , completely unfenced, whose passage was difficult enough for a horse and cart when the beck was a normal stream. At the top of the track the
travellers had met and talked with an acquaintance, but none of the three occupants of the vehicle was seen alive again. The next morning early searches discovered the terrible tragedy that had befallen them, The horse was found quietly standing in the
water twenty yards below the ford apparently unharmed by its ordeal in the night. The lifeless little girl lay on the bank and Mr. Kenworthy's body had been washed down into the dam of Rishworth paper mill, and his wife's body was recovered another
half mile down the stream, having been carried through the water and over the dam at the far end. Articles from the cart were found at points along the becks course"

The victims were buried in Deanhead churchyard the burial place for the Kenworthy's for generations. John Kenworthy was grandma's Uncle. Left behind at Stott Hall were John's mother, his son Levi age 11, his daughter Sarah aged 6 and his daughter
Lily aged 4. The people of Rishworth were very kind to the orphans and paid for them to be educated at Rishworth grammar school - a boarding school set up by the Wheelwrights. About 1970 I saw the following in the local paper.

"Gifts of silver - A silver chalice and wine flagon will be dedicated at Rishworth school chapel on Saturday as part of the Founders day celebrations. They are gifts to the school from Mr. John Kenworthy Holdsworth in memory of two Rishworthians, his
mother Lily and his Uncle Levi, whose parents were drowned at Rishworth in 1881. Mr. Holdsworth has given the silver in gratitude to Rishworth for taking in the orphans". There is no mention of the girl Sarah.
