I have this George as the father of Arthur who married Beatrice Wentworth, but a rather different ancestry for Arthur is given in Burke?s Extinct and Dormant Baronetcies:
Kaye of Woodesham or Woodsome, created 4th Feb., 1641-2. Extinct 25th Dec. 1810.
Sir John Kaye, Knight, living at the time of the conquest, married the daughter and heiress of Sir John Woodesham of Woodesham in the County of York, and had two sons, John (Sir) his heir, and Richard who went in Lancashire and marrying the heiress of Crompton of Crompton, was founder of the Keay?s of that country.
The elder son Sir John Kaye, Knight, of Woodesham, married the daughter and heiress of Sir John Copley and was by her a son.
Sir Robert Keay who married the daughter and heir of Mallet of Upton Mallet and from him we pass through a line of eminent persons to his lineage descendant.
Sir William Keay, Knight, of Woodesham who married the daughter of Gaston of Sedbue and was survived by his son John Keay esquire of Woodesham who by the daughter of Harley left a son and heir.
Robert Keay esquire who married the daughter of Plumpton of Plumpton and was succeeded by his son Arthur Keay esquire living in the time of Henry 8th, who married Beatrice, daughter of Mathew of Wentworth, Esq. of Bretton, in Yorkshire.
Pedigree of the Kayes of Woodsome is in Chap IX of ?Huddersfield and its vicinity? by D.F.E. Sykes (1898)
