My interest in John Spencer of Selby was sparked, because when the property of John Spencer of Selby Gentleman at Millgate, Selby, changed hands in 1802/1803 from John Spencer, Gent., the new owner Thomas Hembrough of Selby, Yeoman, still had John HOOD as occupier. (Registered Wakefield 1803, Vol. EN, page 314, No.423).
[This property occupied by Mr HOOD appears to have been owned by John Turner, prior to John Spencer, Gent.]

Often, when houses changed ownership, Tenants occupying often had to quit.

Also John HOOD of Selby, formerly of Scarborough 1770s, had earlier married an Elizabeth Leppington, Widow, nee Elizabeth SPENCER (information reserched thanks to Rootschatters).

Interesting one of the Spencers mentioned in the thread carried middle name of Spink, some Spinks were Quakers.
