Sarah Jane Sandford (1842-1852)
She was born on 26 April 1842, the daughter of scribbling mill owner Jonathan Sandford and his first wife Nancy (neé Roberts), and was baptised on 17 July 1842 at Holmfirth.
Following Nancy's death on 24 June 1843, her father married Elizabeth Kinder.
Together with the other residents of the house, Sarah Jane Sandford was killed in the early hours of 5 February 1852, when a flood torrent of water washed the Sandford house away.
