    Notes 
    • "He was a very successful Mourning/ Linen Draper in York and must have built up quite a fortune as he retired from business, aged 53 to Scarborough. Before then he had been a philanthropist in York and laid several Foundation Stones - one at the Salvation Army Citadel (with General Booth) and another at a local chapel. So rumour has it, when he retired he put most of his fortune into a ship and this turned out to be disastrous as the captain steered a bad course and the ship foundered and was lost. Joseph then had to return to York to start up in business again, in a smaller way, but still in the main street of York - Parliament Street. My grandmother, his daughter met my grandfather Edward Penty at the shop, where Edward was apprenticed as a Draper. Before marrying, my grandmother became an officer in the Salvation Army - she must have been inspired by General Booth, [William Booth and his wife, Catherine were responsible for establishing the Salvation Army] who it is said stayed with Joseph whenever he visited York. Joseph himself was a lay preacher and had strict and staunch principles."
