Hi
The coat of arms with three bell is common in the Scottish borders mainly Dumfriesshire. The Bells are well known in the disputed lands around Canonbie, Middlebie etc.
You mentioned an Arthur Bell mid 1800s. My family tree has traditionally named the oldest son Arthur and we can go back to 1808 with this line but always on the Scottish side of the border.

I have in my possession a memorial book for a Mrs Smith who was the daughter of John Bell born Mary Ann on 5/10/1803 died 17/12/1891

John Bell was of Portington Hall she married Joseph Smith of Eastrington in April 1825

It is a lovely piece of family history - i dont know how I got it - it has her photo and signature in it.

If you are a relative would you be interested in it as it has no use to me but I do not want to just throw it away .

Your post here is over 2 years ago so I am hoping it is still a 'live' email

Looks quite a bit like that of my family, from Thirsk (North Riding)
