Elvington History



John Spence married Susannah Ramsey on the 15th November 1784 at St Mary's Hull.

They had

Robert 1787 Hull

Ann Elizabeth  1798 Hull

Susannah 1801 Hull

Henry Ramsey 1788

John c1786


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
