I saw and ducked around some of those references, bit of a mares nest eh!
The Fells were Lead miners, lucky to have any surviving prodgeny at all!
The pub stayed in family hands . So some nice background  Per this from ,http://www.bgwaters.co.uk/fosterhorner.htm
      As well as being closely associated with lead mining, the Fells also had associations with the Cotton industry in the Aire valley. In 1787 a Robert Fell, innkeeper of the Thanet's Arms in Skipton was the trustee of a John Hartley of Airton who had purchased Airton watermill [14] . The mill was extended from 1787 to 1797 and used for spinning Cotton Twist. Isaac and John Dewhurst, of Skipton and Embsay, later acquired Airton Mill in 1825 in partnership with Christopher Bracewell of Thornton in Craven [15] . This Robert Fell was the man who later joined in partnership with Foster Horner [16] . A John Fell, who may be related, was a cardmaster in the 1803 muster rolls for Skipton [17] . Although the Fells had associations with the Cotton industry, Foster Horner seems to have been mainly associated with the lead industry.

I think 1772 was the date of Probate for both.

Burials at Linton in Craven
