has lately been put in Rawden Church, partly subscribed for by the Sunday

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.
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"
