  • Notes 
    • Mary was christened in Salt House Lane chapel, Kingston upon Hull. This must have been by her father the Rev John Beatson who was the preacher there. She was married twice, first to Wilfred Burnham with whom she had 2 children, and after wilfred died she married George Blenkin and had another 4 children.
      George died in 1837, and Mary then lived for another 33 years as a widow. She lived most of her life in Hull, before moving to Boston in Lincolnshire in old age. George being a seed merchant in the thriving port of Hull, the family would have lived above the premises George worked from which was No.67 the High Street, Hull. Probably because of George's work, when he died she must have been left some money because she is described as a 'landed proprietor' in the 1851 census.

      (There is short-hand after Mary and Winefreda's names which probably stands for living on independent means)
