1777 Staithes · Birth At eight days old, Mary was baptised at Hinderwell. She was twenty-nine when she became the second wife of William BULMER(46). They married in Filey, had three children and then William left Mary to experience thirty years as a widow. She is buried in St Oswald’s churchyard in an unmarked grave.
1870 Filey · Baptism When she died at the age of thirty, her father carved a handsome stone that ensured she would be remembered. (But I don’t know the cause of her death.)
1831 Beverley · Marriage Edward and Hannah’s descendants struggled to keep their line going but great-granddaughter “Louie” STENNETT married Herbert Copley MOWTHORPE in Skirlaugh and gave us local historian “Ces”. He contributed a description of The Black Hole (Hunmanby’s Lock-Up) here.
1822 Scarborough · Death Christopher was born in Bridlington but soon afterwards the family moved to Filey. Kath noted his unfortunate demise in Filey Genealogy & Connections.
On 1st March 1822, he fell into the sea whilst boarding a ship at Scarborough. He had previously fished at Filey.
I don’t think he has a place on the Shared Tree yet but I am fairly sure he belongs to this family.
1919 Filey · Burial Jane Elizabeth Scotter née CAMMISH was only thirty-three when she died.
It seems that most “official” sources record Jane as a Cammish but I think she was widely known as Jane Sayers. Her mother, Sarah Cammish, married Edmond SAYERS a couple of years after Jane’s birth. The fact that Jane named her son Edmund Sayers Scotter suggests to me that the man who raised her was her biological father. Here she is on FG&C –
The picture is somewhat different on the FamilySearch Shared Tree.
The inscription on her headstone reads –
In sweet remembrance of JANE ELIZABETH, the beloved wife of GEORGE SCOTTER,
who entered into rest Feb 25th 1919, aged 33 years.
‘Father in Thy gracious keeping
We now leave our loved one sleeping’
