NOTE: There is another place named Lofthouse (near Pateley Bridge) which was also in the West Riding of Yorkshire until 1974, but has now migrated to North Yorkshire, and a third place named Loftus (probably the largest of the three) in the Cleveland part of the North Riding which was called Lofthouse during the 19th century and before. Check all sources carefully before choosing the one that meets your evidence.
