157 "Mr. Henry Wickham Wickham was drafted into the business in early manhood. He was born in the year 1800, and received his education, first at the Bradford Grammar School, and afterwards at Oxford. With the view of fitting himself for the position to which he had been taught to look forward from his childhood, he devoted himself with great assiduity to the study of metallurgy ; and on taking his place in the counting-house at Low Moor, he was found to be quite equal to the responsibility that was reposed in him, and for many years he plodded steadily on and exercised a general superintendence over the works.
In 1833 he was made a West Riding magistrate, and showed himself such an able and careful administrator, that in 1842 he was appointed chairman of quarter sessions. From that time he began to take a prominent part in the public affairs of the district, and in 1847 was put in nomination, along with his partner Mr. Gathorne Hardy (now Lord Cranbrook), for the representation of Bradford in Parliament ; but both he and Mr. Hardy were on that occasion unsuccessful. When the dissolution of 1852 took place, however, Mr. Wickham was again desired to allow himself to be brought forward as a candidate, and consented.

Mr. Wickham continued to represent Bradford until the day of his death, which occurred in September, 1867.

159 "Mrs Good-Man of Dovenby was buried at Bridekirk"
The Winstanleys and Tolsons seem to have been bought out (there was litigation), because by the 1680's Dovenby belonged to two sisters and co-heiresses: Mary and Frances Molyne, grand-daughters of Frances Lamplugh and William Bullock.

These two co-heiresses married Lamplughs of other branches. Mary married Richard Lamplugh I of Ribton as his second wife, and Francis married Thomas Lamplugh of Lamplugh (1656-1734) who incidentally was Richard's nephew, being a son of Richard's sister.

Dovenby came to Richard by his marriage to Mary Moline. After Richard's death, Mary married Richard Goodman of Carlisle. She was buried at Bridekirk in 1736 and is described in the Register as "Mrs Goodman of Dovenby." Thomas Lamplugh III in his will (27 Jun 1734) bequests to 'his sister Maria Good-Man ?20 for life. Her grandchildren were Peter Brougham and Mary Brougham who were ultimately the heirs of all the Dovenby property.
