    Notes 
    • George Amos was tragically killed when only 10 years old. As recounted by John J Minter, George was playing near the house about noon one day and had taken his kite. He was concentrating on the kite and was backing away and pulling on the string as you do - unfortunately he backed straight into the front of a horse which was standing in the shafts of a cart, but apparently - not fully harnessed. The horse shied and reared and kicked out with his back legs, striking and killing George instantly. There was an inquest and although the case was very sad, the inquest found that it was an unfortunate accident.

      The burial entry in the St Paul Alverthorpe Parish Register has 'Coroner's Order' beside it. George was buried aged 10, of Wrenthorpe.
