John Spence married Susannah Ramsey on the 15th November 1784 at St Mary's Hull.
Robert 1787 Hull
Ann Elizabeth 1798 Hull
Susannah 1801 Hull
Henry Ramsey 1788
In 1804 John is recorded as a linen draper of Hull, 8 years later he is a Gentleman living at Elvington.
His wife's father? John Ramsey, Lord of the Manor at Elvington and Full Sutton died and left to Susannah and her sister Dorothy
what was left of his personal estates after duties and bequests.
So this could have been how John went up in status from just a linen draper
