late July 1830:  William Huntley disappeared, and Robert Goldsbrough was locally suspected of murdering him.  Goldsbrough moved to Barnsley in the autumn, where he lived under the name Towers (probably his mother’s maiden name).  He was tried for Huntley’s murder after the discovery of a skeleton in 1841 [Yorkshire Gazette 21 Aug 1841 & 12 Mar 1842]

Robert Goldsbrough is described in the newspaper accounts as a widower with two children.  The PR transcripts show that John Goldsbrough married Ann Towers on 15 Aug 1776 (she signed, he made his mark;  witnesses:  Richard Nightingale and William Ableson).  John, son of John, labourer, was baptised 26 Jan 1777;  Elizabeth, daughter of John, was baptised 12 Mar 1780;  Ann, daughter of John, was baptised 2 Aug 1782.  William, son of John, lace-weaver, was baptised 11 Apr 1788.  Robert, son of John & Ann, was baptised 24 Nov 1793, making him a late child of the marriage, born when his mother was 45.  The NBI indicates that Ann died in 1814 aged 66, and John in June 1828 aged 80.

The PR transcripts show that Robert married Susannah Smith on 12 Dec 1815 (both signed the register;  witnesses:  Thomas Eland and William Preston) and they had two sons:  Robert bap 4 Feb 1816, and William bap 7 Jun 1818.  On 27 Feb 1828 Susannah died aged 49.  Goldsbrough claimed that Huntley pressed him to go to America with him, but he refused as he had two children “whom he thought it was his duty to report” according to the solicitor, Wm Garbutt.

Robert Goldsbrough is described in the testimony of James Maw in the case report as having a sister-in-law, Sophia Goldsbrough.  The PR transcripts show William Gouldsbrough married Sophia Armstrong on 9 Dec 1807, witnesses John Imeson, James Catchasides, William Paterson and John Passman.

There may have been several Goldsbrough families in the village in the late C18/ early C19: besides John & Ann (see above), an LDS member records a John Goldsbrough & Elizabeth Brass having sons George, William, John, Robert and Thomas in the 1770s;  and John Goldsbrough married Elizabeth Bradley on 2 Jan 1803 and had Ann bap 23 Oct 1803, Elizabeth bap 1806, William bap 1808, William bap 1810, Sarah bap 1813, John 1815, Jane 1819 and Robert 1822 (according to the PR records on the IGI).
A Mary Goldsbro, daughter of John & Ann, was baptised on 17 Mar 1825.
Bartholomew Goldsbrough, son of Ralph & Ann and baptised in Stainton-in-Cleveland, farmed at Middleton Grange and was also a butcher.

Goldsbrough’s house:  was in a yard;  there was a box near the fireside on which James Bainbridge saw Huntley sitting in late July 1830;  it was two storey – Farnaby saw Goldsbrough with a sack which he took upstairs; there was a silver watch hanging up on the chimney piece, which Stephen Catchasides took down;  when Elizabeth Shaw called she found Goldsbrough “sitting by the fire reading”;  the fire was very large and he said “he had been putting some old rubbish from under the stairs, to burn in the fire”   [Yorkshire Gazette 12 Mar 1842]

Dalkin asked Goldsbrough where Huntley had gone, and was told, “me and Huntley have had that matter talked over about the money he owes you, and it’s no use thee going, as he never intends paying thee.”  [Yorkshire Gazette 12 Mar 1842]

John Kaye said:  Prisoner followed Dalkin out;  he stood against the door cheek and said to me – “That gentleman’s been at my house asking for Huntley.  He’ll neither find him at my house, nor at Whitby, nor nowhere else.”  [Yorkshire Gazette 12 Mar 1842]

early Aug 1830:  Anthony Wiles saw Robert Goldsbrough, Thomas Grundy, William Patterson and George Sanderson “at Scotson’s, public-house … They were sitting in the front kitchen drinking.  They might have “teens” of pints of ale.  The prisoner paid for them;  he paid half-a-crown every two or three pints.  They remained there till about four in the morning;  they came in at twelve o’clock at night” [Yorkshire Gazette 12 Mar 1842]
