The property of John Spencer of Selby Gentleman at Millgate, Selby, changed hands in 1802/1803 from John Spencer, Gent., to 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 John HOOD & Mr HOOD appears to have been owned by John Turner, prior to John Spencer, Gent., per Selby Land Tax]
