Notes: The Yorkshire Crathorne's had strong Catholic beliefs. Following the changes in the law, after Henry 8th's split with the Roman Church, laws were enacted requiring Catholics to give up their faith and attend Church of England services. Those who refused were taken to court and fined. Many Yorkshire Crathorne's fell foul of these laws, including Thomas, who was in court in 1634.
