Extract from the Parish Magazine, Dunholme
When John Doubikin died in 1888, a few days after the death of Jane Moffatt, the Vicar wrote:

'Our brother and neighbour, John Doubikin, at the advanced age of 84 years, went to Bradford to spend a few days with some members of his family, intending to return and spend Christmas Day with his son at Langworth, but it had been decreed otherwise by the Almighty Disposer of all events. He was siezed with bronchitis and quietly passed away on the second day of the present year'.
