Emily Sandford (1848-1852)
She was born on 21 March 1848, the daughter of scribbling mill owner Jonathan Sandford and his second wife Elizabeth (neé Kinder), and was baptised on 9 July 1848 at Holmfirth.
Together with the other residents of the house, Emily Sandford was killed in the early hours of 5 February 1852, when a flood torrent of water washed the Sandford house away.
