See "The history and topography of the Isle of Axholme" by The Rev. W. B. Stonehouse, 1849 here:

This can be very useful. When looking up the History and topography of the Isle of Axholme I searched within the book itself and found a reference to the memorial plaque for Mary Jones on page 295. I believe she would be the mother in law of the Reverend William Wright who was perpetual curate of Haxeyand also for Richard Anderson Wright who died 10th March 1818 one of the children of theReverend William Wright

Google / Books can be extremely useful; I have found references to ancestors in York in books that are extremely old. It is amazing that they have been scanned and are fully available. I can't recommend it highly enough.
