Received from Lilian Caley

"I recently sent an e mail to the Parish Administrator of Rothbury Parish Church in Northumberland as I knew William Henry Knight was buried there.  I was put in touch with a very nice lady named Freda she checked the records and found the grave, then she was kind enough to e mail the photo's to me of which I am sending to you to see if they are of use to the forum. As you will see his eldest daughter Charlotte is buried with him. I like the comment from Freda that he must have been important because of where he is buried in the churchyard. I wonder what made him important, could it have been the connection to Lord Delaval."
