William Beardmore, second son of William and Mary, was baptised at Audley on December 16th 1784. He married Mary Stanier on April 24th 1810. They had four children: John (b. 1811), Elizabeth (b. 1821), Kitty (b. 1821) and Martha (b. 1828).

In 1841 the family were living at The Lawn, Park Lane, Endon. We believe that William farmed nearby. By 1851 he was living with his unmarried daughters. Mary is not shown on that census but she is referred to in William’s will, dated 1857, along with son John, daughters Elizabeth and Martha, and daughter Kitty married to William Mason.
