Skiptons Holy Trinity Parish Church is located at the top of the main street, near the castle. 

A search of the Parish Records pre 1813 has identified only one record, a marriage, relating to a Feather or Fether.

I suspect that the A in Feather has been inserted by the original transcriber, who is unknown.

The lack of information located in Addingham, despite its proximity to Keighley, is clear evidence that the surname was centered predominantly around one particulare area.

 

Here we have the 'Feather' Baptisms for the Haworth Parish Church between 1729 and 1753.  This list also suports the fact that the 'A' in Feather was not widely used at this time, it became more common in the first half of the 19th Century.
