Building commenced on Knottfield House in early 1846, John Dawson of Kirkstall Brewery originally lived there, it became the Mitchell Memorial Home after WW1 for ex-servicemen suffering from Tuberculosis. When the need for this facility waned it was taken over by the West Riding County Council as a home for boys, the house was demolished in 1959. Rawdon Crematorium is now on the site (July 2015), all that remains of Knottfield House is a flight of steps.

After reading this story we found out that my wife is a distant relative of Judith's.
Before we knew this conection we missed meeting her by a short time, Judith was staying at Peashill house in Rawdon at the same time that we were having a meal there with some friends for our Golden wedding.
We have since been in contact swopping family knowledge.
