In 1901 Ann Elizabeth and her daughter Mary were at North End Farm in Middleton-in-the-Wold, the home of her daughter Clara. The census shows Ann to be a visitor. Mary E, Ann's other daughter, was also at North End Farm but is described by the Enumerator as 'sister-in-law'. Does this suggest a more permanent residence than 'visitor'.

In the second quarter of 1882 Isabella married the Rev. Theodore WILLIAMS (GRO ref: Driffield 9d 455) who was born in Corsham, Wiltshire in the fourth quarter of 1847 (GRO ref: Chippenham 8 256). He became the vicar of St. Martins, Scampston in the ancient parish of Rillington. Scampston, formerly a chapelry under Rillington, was for a few years severed from Rillington, and constituted a distinct parish.

The living is a new vicarage, in the gift of A. J. CHOLMLEY, Esq., of Newton Hall, and held by the Rev. Theodore WILLIAMS, M.A., of Wadham College, Oxford. Its annual value is 60, but this is supplemented by 100 given by the lord of the manor.

The church was rebuilt in 1845-6, in place of an old one which dated from Norman times, but was in such a dilapidated condition that its restoration was impossible. The present edifice, which is dedicated to St. Martin, is in the Early Decorated style of architecture, and consists of chancel, nave, two aisles, south porch, and open bell turret containing two bells. The cost, about 2,000, was defrayed by William St. Quintin, Esq., the then lord of the manor. On each side of the nave is an arcade of four pointed arches dividing it from the aisles. All the interior fittings and furniture are of oak. There is no burial ground; the dead are interred at Rillington.
