I only think this is marriage is his parents becausebr>1. Lancashire
2. About the right time period
3. Mary Heys would be his mother and two of John's Children have Heys as a middle name.
4. i can find no other Heatley / Heys marriage.
Right onto the document to see if I can find any information in the 488 pages that links me to the above.
There are 205 references to Heatley but only 4 John Heatley's
But only where a John Heatley was a sponsor
So I can't find my Heatley's
There is so much other information though.
Cravens and Heys history that seems interlinked with the Heatleys
In 1831 Mr. Joseph Knight, of Chelsea (Gillow, Biog. Diet, iv, 74),
erected the schools, about two hundred yards from the chapel, commemoratory
of his being a native of Brindle. In 1832 Capt. William
Heatley, of Brindle Lodge, generously paid for the enlargement of
the chapel, and a " Lady Chapel " was formed on the left-hand side
of the sanctuary. A further enlargement took place in 1843, which
provided a total accommodation for about 800 persons (Biog. Diet, iii,
252-6; Kelly, Cath. Missions, 100).
After the death of Squire Heatley in 1840, Mr. Thomas Eastwood,
the husband of his niece Catherine, to whom he had bequeathed Brindle
Lodge, was most dissatisfied with the terms of the old squire s will,
and at once instituted proceedings of various kinds. The bulk of the
estate, both real and personal, had been left to the old squire s spiritual
adviser, the Rev. Thomas Sherburne veve Irving, of the Willows, Kirkham,
whose compromise in 1841 was followed by further litigation
and much controversy, in which Bishop Brown, Francis Middelton,
Esq., of the Stockeld Hall family, the Rev. Francis Trappes, who acted
as the latter s theologian, 194 members of the Brindle congregation,
and many others took part. Amongst numerous publications was a
broad sheet containing a poetical effusion entitled " The Brindle
Lament." In June, 1844, a petition was presented to the House of
10 REGISTERS OF BRINDLE
Commons signed by a number of Mr. Eastwood s adherents in the
Brindle congregation, praying the House to afford that protection
formerly given to patrons of catholic chapels, and that the same should
be vested in laymen, and not the Pope s vicar. Mr. Eastwood s next
move was to defy Fr. Bede Smith by refusing to pay pew-rent, Mr.
Heatley having occupied a tribune in the chapel to which Mr. Eastwood
laid claim, and six members of the congregation were committed to
the Preston House of Correction on refusing to pay the penalties of
conviction for assault, at the Chorley Petty Sessions, Mar. 24, 1846,
during a disturbance made by Mr. Eastwood. An action against the
magistrates for false imprisonment was commenced in the follow
ing August, but withdrawn on some technical grounds. After this
Mr. Eastwood became a protestant, and turned the domestic oratory
at Brindle Lodge into a bathroom and lavatory, and removed from
college his two sons who were studying for the priesthood. It was
not long before he quarrelled with the Anglican rector of Brindle, but
was buried as a protestant in Walton churchyard (Haydock Papers
MSS.; Biog. Diet. Engl. Caths. iii, 254-5). In July, 1867, the effects
at Brindle Lodge, including the Heatley library, were put up to auction
by his widow, and the estate privately sold to Mr. Whitehead, since
which time its catholic associations have ceased.
Shortly before 1857, Fr. Bede established the existing
$ William Heatley, subsequently O.S.B., was the second son of Hugh
Heatley, of Samlesbury, yeoman, a Catholic non-juror in 1717, who registered
leasehold estates in Samlesbury inherited from his father and grandfather,
James and Hugh Heatley, yeomen. His grandmother, Alice Heatley, then a
widow, was a recusant convict in 1717, as well as his uncle, Peter Heatley, of
Whittle-le-Woods, yeoman, whose son, Fr. James Heatley, S.J., born Apr. 2,
1715, died chaplain to the Tempests at Broughton Hall, co. York, May n,
1782, aged 67. Through the instrumentality of Dom Wm. Placid Naylor,
O.S.B., William Heatley was sent to Lambspring, where he was professed
under the name of Maurus in 1740, and ordained in 1746. He was at St.
Gregory s, Douai, in 1750, and came to the mission in the South Province and
was placed at Cheame, Surrey. In 1757 he became Dennitor of the Province,
remaining at Cheame till he was elected Abbot of Lambspring in 1762, which
office he retained till his death there, Aug. 15, 1802, aged 79. His nephew, Dom Hugh Jerome Heatley, O.S.B., eldest son of James Heatley, of Samles
bury, was born in 1757 at Preston, where his father was engaged in business,
was professed at Lambspring in 1777, and was sent to Bath in 1787, where he
died April 28, 1792, aged 35. Another relative, Dom John Lewis Heatley,
O.S.B., born at Samlesbury in 1752, died at Lambspring May 9, 1805.

Cravens were witnesses at John 1813 and John 1780 wedding.
Does this prove the two Johns are related?
Does it prove they are related to the Heatleys above or just a coincidence?
Finally the famiiy settled at Westwood House in Clayton Green,
Dalton Lodge, and Whittle-le-Woods. John Craven went to Sedgley Park
School in 1784, and in 1795 married Margaret, daughter of Jasper Gibson,
attorney-at-law, of Hexham, eldest son of Jasper Gibson, of Stonecroft, Hexham.
He died at Clayton Green May 28, 1852, aged 80. Two of his sons,
Edward and Jasper, went to Sedgley Park in 1806, the former eventually dying
at South Hill, Chorley, April 13, 1869, and the latter, after finishing his studies
at Ushaw College, returned to Sedgley as a master, 1822-38, and died at the
English College at Lisbon in Sept. 1862. A third son, William, born Feb. 27.
1799, went to Sedgley in 1811, and thence to Lisbon in 1814, but returned
home in 1816. Another of the family, Giles Craven, died at Preston May 9,
1824; and Mrs. Emma Craven died at Dalton Lodge July 3, 1844, aged 39.
John Arthur Craven, who went to Sedgley in 1857, entered the Bengal Pro
vincial Service, was a magistrate, and died at Serampore Mar. 16, 1899, aged
54; and James Craven, of the East Indian Railway Service, died suddenly
Dec. 10, 1902, aged 59. Another member of the family, John Craven, with his
son-in-law, Nicholas Hayes, established the grocery firm of Hayes and Craven,
in Preston, and in his latter years retired to Westwood House, Clayton Green,
and became a justice of the peace, dying there Dec. 3, 1898, aged 75.
The child was called after her aunt Emerentiana, wife of Edward Craven,
of Walton. Emerentiana was a favourite family name. One of that name be
came the wife of James Foster, of Charnock Richard, tanner, and was mother
of James Foster, born Feb. 14, 1746-7, who became an alumnus of Douay
College in 1771. The surname was and is variously spelt Heys and Hayes.
The family settled at Wheelton and Whittle-le-Woods, and were connected
with the Heatleys, from whom they derived property. Some of them were at
Sedgley Park, Lisbon, Stonyhurst, Ampleforth, etc. In the middle of last
century Nicholas Hayes was in partnership with his son-in-law,John Craven, of
Westwood House, Clayton Green, as a grocer in Friargate, Preston, under the
style of Hayes and Craven. He was the father of Fr. James, S. J. ; of William,
founder of the firm of Hayes and Finch, Ltd. ; and of Nicholas, of Dalton
Lodge, Whittle-le-Woods, three of whose sons joined the community at
Ampleforth, Dom Wilfrid Bernard, born 1871, author of the Via Vita of
St. Benedict (Cath. Who s Who, 1920), Dom Austin Benedict, and Dom Vincent
Leo Hayes, O.S.B. Henry Heys, of Dalton Lodge, went to Sedgley in 1805.
John Heys, of Gorse Hall, Whittle-le-Woods, died May 31, 1849, aged 55, and
his widow Elizabeth Oct. 8, 1853, aged 34.
