Rawden - A most beautiful marble tablet has lately been put in Rawden Church, partly subscribed for by the Sunday School teachers and other friends, as a token of respect and kind remembrance of Miss Ibbotson, elder daughter of the Rev. A Ibbotson, incumbent. 

     She was highly respected by all who had her acquaintance and particularly by the Sunday scholars and teachers.

The tablet bears the following inscription :

    Mary Ann Ibbotson, elder daughter of the Rev. A Ibbotson and Jane his wife, who died November 1848 aged 22 years "And now, Lord, what is my hope? Truly my hope is even in thee"
