George Beardmore, William and Mary’s third son, was born on July 18th 1787 and baptised at Talke on July 22nd. We know virtually nothing else about him, but we think he died on February 17th 1839 and was buried at Burslem on February 21st. His sister Mary’s will in 1860 refers to the children of her deceased brothers, William, George and Francis, so it seems likely that George was married. Possible candidates include Esther Shaw at Alton on August 7th 1814, Ellen Hawkins at Bucknall on May 29th 1815, or Catherine Leigh at St John’s Burslem on July 2nd 1817.
