I’m not sure who Graves BULMER’s parents are, or if he had any siblings. He has a limited representation on FamilySearch Tree.
At the 1841 census, he was with wife Ann and their three young boys, farming from Moor House, at the edge of the village in the vicinity of Common Right Road. Ten years later his address was given as “the Houses near the Railway Station”, though an 1851 map shows there were hardly any dwellings in that part of Filey at that time. He had left the land to work as a publican and fishmonger. He died before the 1861 census was taken.
In affectionate remembrance of GRAVES BULMER who died October 11th 1858, aged 52 years.
‘While spirits in the clouds above
Do sing and praise redeeming love
Their bodies in the bed of clay
Wait silent till the joyful day.’
Also JAMES BULMER, son of the above, died Feb 16th 1911, aged 77 years
‘Peace & rest’
Ann, a widow for fifteen years, was buried in St Oswald’s churchyard in 1873, though I don’t know exactly where. The space beneath Graves’ inscription waited another forty years or so before being filled with a remembrance of eldest son James’ passing.
In 1871 Ann was enumerated in Chapel Street North, described as an Innkeeper. In Filey Genealogy & Connections she is listed as a Beer House Keeper. Her domain, The Star, is pictured below about half a century after her death.
