I have an original copy of this family Will. With the great assistance of this website and it's contributors and transcribers I am actively engaged in collating all relevant information on my lineage of the RAISTRICK family, whose main abode was in Idle.
All RAISTRICKS derive from RASTRICK, a village near Brighouse in the old West Riding of Yorkshire. The earliest reference so far to a RASTRICKE living in RASTRICK was in the 1270's. Any help and assistance I can give or receive from any other RAISTRICKS will be welcome

Samuel Rainforth son in law
