Comment . . . David was baptised in Womersley, though his parents came from Spofforth. His wife Ann was probably born across the Humber in Lincolnshire. It was David who began the family limestone business.

Comment . . . It seems that the 1824 baby "William Hearfield Bee" cannot have lived very long, for the second one to bear that name was baptised just two years later. In 1841 Mary and Benjamin were still living in Hessle with her parents. William was by then working in Hull, as a clerk, and lodging next door to Priscilla Day; the two were (apparently) married a few years later, though I can't trace the marriage.
