You say your Leighton ancestor was born in 1844, the son of Samuel Leighton.
A Samuel Leighton appears in the South Cave parish church burial register in 1873:
Samuel Leighton So. Cave 24th Decr. 1873, 69 years.
The corresponding baptism of this Samuel appears to be as follows:
Sep. 9th 1804 Saml. Leighton son of Saml. Leighton & Anne his wife de S. Cave
This Samuel is perhaps the one buried in 1832 according to the following burial register
Samuel Leighton, South Cave, July 1st 1832, 76 years.
This is the Samuel referred to in another post as having been suspected of dying of
There is also the burial of an Anne Leighton:
Ann Leighton, South Cave, 17 Decr., 1846, 81 years.
The above entries are taken from 'The Parish Registers of South Cave' by William
Richardson, Brown & Sons, Hull, 1909. These transcriptions are just a selection from
the registers. Richardson did not publish a full transcription.
Burials prior to 1873 will be in the church yard and those after 1873 are likely to be in
the new burial ground. In either case there may or may not be a grave stone.
I hope this may be of help.

My inquiry is in regards to my gggrandfather's family
who was born in South Cave on the 10 Aug 1844 and died in
Chamberlain, Sasketchewan Canada on 11 Jun 1924. My
question is about his father was Samuel and he was Methodist
and were would Samuel be buried in South Cave.
Another question I have is that I have him listed in the
census as a ploughboy. My question is would he be pulling
the plough or steering it with an ox or cattle in the front
