James was described as being "of Holne" upon his marriage to Leah Marsland and they lived in Wooldale township, first at Standbank and later at Long Ing, Hade Edge. After Leah's death he married Martha Goddard of Meltham. He is known to have bought Ellentree Head for the use of the sons of the first marriage but eventually moved to Townend, Wooldale. Martha was left property at Wickens, Upperthong during her life but a son Samuel, whose baptism is unknown was also left an interest in it. It seems likely that this had been her dowry and may have been Goddard property at least since the family lived at Hillock and that Samuel was Martha's son. There are subsequently numerous Dearnley families in Wooldale and to a lesser extent in Cartworth and Fulstone. It seems very likely that they are all descended from James and his sons although because there are often children with the same name in contemporary families it's not always clear exactly how the various generations connect up. - Ian Goddard.
James Dearneley was born about 1680
Merging this James as the James son of Joseph D. & Elizabeth Hopwood raises some birth date questions. - MED.
James Dearneley was the son of Joseph Dearneley and Elizabeth Hopwood.
in 1705 James Dearneley lived at Holme, Yorkshire, England.
James Dearneley married Leah Marshland, daughter of Emanuel Marsland, on 28 January 1705 at Almondbury, Huddersfield, Yorkshire, England,
This is an extremely significant marriage as the descendants of this & James's subsequent marriage to
Martha Goddard constitute most if not all of the subsequent families in Wooldale, Scholes, etc.
Although James was described as being of Holme at the time of his marriage his children were all born in Wooldale.
- Ian Goddard.
in 1713 James Dearneley lived at Stand Bank, Longley, Yorkshire, England,
in 1724 James Dearneley lived at Kirkburton Parish, Yorkshire, England.
James Dearneley married Martha Goddard, daughter of William Goddard, on 10 June 1724 at All Hallows' Church, Almondbury, Yorkshire, England,

Assumed to be this James D. While James did not live in Upperthong he is likely to have had interests there from Martha's dowry (see note after Will).
Note: in 1734
This was sold by George Castle of Bridge, in 1734, to James Dearneley of Long Ing in the Parish of Kirkburton, clothier. By his will (proved 27 Jun, 1743) Dearnely left to his wife Martha his messuage at Upper Thong called Wickens and to his son William the estate at Ellentreehead (subject to another son Joseph enjoying the rents of part for 12 years). 1
William Dearnely mortgaged the property and it was sold in 1763 to William Armitage of Aspley, Hudddersfield.
Will of William Armitage, Abstract of will of Elizabeth Armitage and admission of Thomas Armitage, 1796. (deeds 1-19).
William Armitage the younger subsequently mortgaged the property and in 1827 it came into the possession of the Hudswell family. Armitage was imprisoned as an insolvent debtor and there were legal complications owing to the fact of Thomas Armitage's idiocy.

1 note: National Archives website shows:
'(subject to another son Samuel enjoying the rents of part for 12 years)'
But the will shows:
'my son Joseph Dearnally shall enjoy the Lands and premisses called Ellentreehead for the term of twelve years' - JAD
The 'headland where 'elders' were growing. The families know to have lived there in the 17th
century had the names Matthewman, Crosland and Morton. Adam Eyre always called the farm Edentree-head.

I'm told that there were 3 houses at Ellentree Head. Despite the fact that there was a Mathewman family living there in the 1640s - they were the parents-in-law of Adam Eyre, the diarist - I think 1705 would have been quite an early date for a stone house but there could have been others built there by the time that James D bought one. - Ian Goddard.
James Dearneley was living in 1734 at Long Inn, Kirkburton, Yorkshire, England.
James Dearneley died on 27 April 1743 at Kirkburton, Yorkshire, England,
28th Apr 1743 Old James Dearnley of Townend died yesterday.
1st May Old James Dearnley buried this day
The burial index for Kirkburton confirms this but neither give an age. However at this time Jessop was in his 60s and a fortnight later he records the death of "Old Abraham Heeley" and adds that he was 84 which gives some measure of his idea of "old". It seems likely that this could have been the James Dearnley whose children were born at Long Ing.

James Dearneley left a will on 27 June 1743 at Wooldale, Yorkshire, England.

In his will James left Martha and then to his son Samuel (who I take to be the son of this marriage) cottages in Wickens, Upperthong. I think they are the older cottages in the row mistakenly labelled Hillock Farm here (GoogleMaps) (Hillock is actually the farm over to the west. The terms of the will suggest that this was her dowry. This means that he would have had interests in Upperthong by the time of the 1729 indenture in addition to his main interests on the Kirkburton side of the valley. -IG.
