A Fistful of Barley

I haven’t completed the two BEAUMONT families that loved Filey so much some chose to rest eternally here. Made enough progress, though, to put two headstone photographs on FamilySearch Tree and tag them. (Joseph senior.) To my dismay, I discovered I’ve unnecessarily created IDs for several persons, making some merging work for myself.

So far, I have only two of Joseph and Maria’s nine children marrying. Joseph Tyrrel chose a wife from his own merchant class. Jessie Clare married into the aristocracy and can be found on the splendid Peerage website.

Sir Peile THOMPSON, 2nd Bt. was a barrister and clerk in holy orders (in Filey Genealogy & Connections). His father, Sir Matthew William, was chairman of the Forth Bridge and Midland Railway Companies. He seems to have been solely responsible for building Guiseley Town Hall in the 1860s. It is now a Theatre and if you scroll through the Codswallop to the third photograph you will see the THOMPSON crest – with a cute stone button above it.


Sacred to the memory of JOSEPH BEAUMONT, Esq., who died at Filey July 23 1885, in the 70th year of his age.


Also to MARIA, beloved wife of the above who passed away June 28th 1892.

‘The Lord is my shepherd’

In loving memory of ANNE, eldest daughter of JOSEPH BEAUMONT, Esq., who entered into rest 11th November 1902.
