Cholmley Turner inherited the estate of Kirkleatham, Yorks. from his great uncle, the philanthopist Sir William Turner. He continued in the philanthropic tradition of his great uncle, building the Free School which now houses Kirkleathem Hall Museum. Gifted with great wealth, Cholmley went on the Grand Tour in around 1710, absorbing the cultural and architectural highlights of Europe. A ministerial Whig, he narrowly won the above vote in 1710, with 8005 votes against George Fox’s 7049.

Possibly the Henry Laidman, defendant, mentioned in a parchment in the National Archives (reference regrettably not taken) concerning a property dispute with Thomas Heslop [K1301] et al., of which the preamble reads:
George the Second by the Grace of God of Great Britain France and Ireland King Defender of the Faith and soforth [sic, one word] To George Brown Thomas Willson & [illegible name] Thomas Heslop Samuel Lunn & Edward Norton Gents Greeting Whereas Richard Ullithorne Complainant hath lately exhibited his Bill of [?Compte] before us in our Court of Chancery against Henry Laidman Defendant and Whereas We have by our Writt lately commanded the said Defendant to appear before us in our said Chancery at a certain Day now past to answer the said Bill know yee that We have given unto three or Two of you full power and authority to [?take] the answer of the said Deft to the said Bill and therefore We command you any three or two of you that at such certain Day and Place as you shall think fit you go to the said Deft if he cannot conveniently come to you and take his answer to the said Bill on his Corporall Oath upon the Holy Evangelists to be administered by you any three or two of you the said Answer being distinctly and plainly wrote upon Parchment and when you shall have so taken it you are to send the same closed under the Seale of you any three or two of you unto us in our said Chancery without delay wheresoever it shall then be together with this Writt Witness our self at Westminster . the eighth day of May in the thirteenth year of our reign [1740].

This presumably cannot be the Henry Laidman who was buried at Chapel Allerton, according to the parish register of St Peter, Leeds:
Burials at Chapel Allerton Chapel in ye. year 1797
Henry / Laidman / Chapel Town / Sepr. 19

unless his baptism in 1701 is incorrect; but I cannot find a candidate for this burial. Did Henry have a son, also Henry?
