"From 1749 to 1754, when Edward Dernally, Timothy Asquith, Jere Lee, Joshua Child, and Peter Kaye served as chief constables of Liversedge, and John Senior, John Muffit, of Hightown, John Buckley, Field Head, John Rouse, Hightown, and Daniel Hemingway of Liversedge Hall, were overseers, nothing of great importance was chronicled only, in the year last named, the workhouse master presents his accounts in a detailed form. This institution is first named as existing in Robert-town about 1740, and it is pretty plain from the entries that it was really a workhouse, for trades of various sorts were carried on within its walls."

eee Edward Dearneley.
I was struck by the fact that we have Roger D of Grange who married a wife from Mirfield (Sarah Owen) and that we have a D family in the Spen Valley.
Roger's son John also married someone from out of the local parish (Esther Prince).
Also the Spen Valley family included a carrier and a saddler and also an out of parish marriage (Featherstone).
Could Edward from the Spen Valley have been another son of Roger D of Grange and we are dealing with a family who were involved in horse-powered transport for generations? That would explain the geographically widespread marriages and also saddlery would be an obvious allied trade.
That would include Roger of Grange, his son John, his putative son Edward in the Spen Valley and Edward's sons John (farmer in his old age but a carrier earlier. also married at Wooley), Samuel (married bride from Rotherham in Sheffield, also a saddler) and Edmund (married bride from Featherstone).
But what about the older Roger? One of the youngest sons of long family would have had to find a trade. One of those available in the Glossop area would have been running pack-horses as Longdendale was a major route from the saltworks of Cheshire across the Pennines via Salters Bridge and also the side route over Holme Moss into the Holme Valley.
