    • Lucy Waterfall was the daughter of Richard and Ann Cross, of Woodbridge. She was left motherless at an early age, and was sent, when 10 years old, to Ackworth. She there joined an older sister, whose death at the school, after a long and suffering illness, was one of her earliest trials. Lucy Waterfall often alluded to the forlorn feeling this loss caused her, alleviated through it was by the kindness and sympathy of Isabella Harris.

      On leaving Ackworth she became a teacher in the school of Hannah Kilham at Leavy Greave, nr Sheffield....... After Leaving Sheffield, she filled the post of governess in several families, where her loving disposition endured her to many hearts.

      In 1833 she married Henry Waterfall. This union, which was a happy one was terminated by the death of her husband in the following year, leaving her with an infant son. With the assistance of many kind friends she commenced a school in Leeds, which she carried on successfully for many years.

      Lucy Waterfall's natural disposition was one of great sweetness, enriched by divine grace; and constraining influence of the love of christ, she was first led to speak in for worship in 1841, and wassubsequently recorded as a minister.

      Lucy Waterfall gave up her school about 1863 and resided in Airton for thirteen years. After death of beloved dinh, the family removed to Leeds......

      After 'honourable' widowhood of upwards fifty yeas, she died in perfect peace.
