 3. History of Cawthorne by Charles Tiplady Pratt M.A.1881,

An out of print text, printed by I.W.Davis, 16, Market Hill, Barnsley, scanned and corrected by Tim Midgley.http://members.tripod.com/~midgley/index-1.html

 Chapter X Page 171 Incumbents And Curates Of Cawthorne

“On the last day of 1881, Mr. John Montague Stanhope came of age.  There was a Parochial Tea and Gathering on Jan. 5th in connection with it, at which Archdeacon Badnall was among those present.  The Archdeacon preached on the following Sunday and again on March 26th: his former visit was in August, 1876.”

A list of "assistant Curates," includes “H. Badnall, 1856, and also states “the Venerable Hopkins Badnall, D.D., has been many years Archdeacon of the Cape.

 Chapter IX. The  Parochial  Schools.

“The present Girls' School was opened on Tuesday, Oct.19, 1858. The following is a copy of the public notice given: "Harvest Thanks-giving and Opening of New School-Room, Cawthorne.  The "Parishioners of Cawthorne are invited to set apart the afternoon "of Tuesday, October 19th, 1858, to the above-named purposes. "Thanksgiving Service and Sermon in the Parish Church at 3 p.m. "Tea in the New School-Room at 5 p.m.  After Tea, Addresses will "be delivered.  The Church Choir and other musical friends will "attend.  Tickets for the Tea, at 6d. each, may be had until Oct.14th from the Churchwardens, Mr. Charles Turner (Cawthorne), Mr. Midgley (Jowit House), and Mr. Longthorne, Basin." This notice shows that our first annual Harvest Thanksgiving Day, which has ever since been such an interesting and happy parochial institution, dates back to the year 1858, when a week-day Thanksgiving Service was first held, on the suggestion of Miss Frances Stanhope to the present Archdeacon Badnall, who was then Curate of the Parish.
