Regarding Martha Hague (b. 1743 d.1819), the wife of Thomas Hague,
the information comes from the death notice of another John Hague
taken from the November 1867 edition of 'Gentleman's Magazine', it reads:
"Oct 1. At Crow Nest, Dewsbury, aged 77, John Hague esq. He was the eldest
son of the late Thomas Hague, esq. of Bullcliffe, Wakefield, by Martha,
daughter of Joseph Sykes, esq. of Drighlington."

- Sarah Sykes (1764-) and John Hague
Sarah, of Mr Joseph Sykes of Dringlington, baptized July 12, 1764
More: John Hague (b.1753 d.1832) married Sarah Sykes -
his first wife. I don't know her birth year or the year of the marriage.
They had three sons (John Hague, Joseph Sykes Hague and Thomas Hague).
Sarah Sykes died in 1798 which corresponds with the birth of her
third son Thomas, presumably her death resulted from childbirth.
I'm sure this must be the same Sarah Sykes (sister of Martha,
daughter of Joseph) as you have listed on your site.
