Marriage of James Law and
James Law married Susannah "Croslay" on April 11, 1692 in Birstall Parish (BT and PRB)
The only person named Crossley who is a direct ancestor in the Law family was Susannah Croslay who married James Law in Birstall Parish in 1692.
Susannah Crossley was an illegitimate child whose mother was a widow. Susannah was given her mother's married name, Crossley, but otherwise was only related to the Crossley family in that she may have had half siblings who were Crossleys.
Susan Crossley the
"daughter of John Langfield and the widow Crossley, a bastard child"was baptized in Birstall parish on May 16, 1669.
John Langfield had a large family including a daughter, Mary, who was baptized on August 1, 1669, just two and a half months after Susan was baptized.

The records for the Crossleys are very sparse:
The Crossley records for the parish are as follows:
Marriage: Isaak Crossley married Alice Crowther August 4, 1657 (BT)Little Liversedge and Littletown were two names for the same place. Long L. stands for Long Liversforge. I can't find any indication of where Long Liversforge was located. Clearly it was in Liversedge Township, as was Little Liversedge, AKA Littletown.
Death of Isaak Crossly: Unknown
Death of Alice Crowther Crossley: Unknown
Note: Unfortunately, I cannot find the death record for Isaak Crossley. If Alice Crowther Crossley was the "widow" Crossley, Isaak Crossley had to have died between 1664 and 1669. There are several places where the records are not legible, for example large portions of 1665, 1667 and parts of 1669. The death could have been recorded during one of these periods or simply be unrecorded.
