Christopher and Dorothy’s second daughter, Dorothy Buckle, was born on January 28th 1780 and baptised in the parish church at Wath, North Yorkshire on January 29th.

Dorothy died aged fifty years in 1830. Her burial record indicates that she lived in the village of Melmerby which was part of the parish of Wath where she’d been born. Dorothy appears to have stayed close to home throughout her life.

She was buried on March 2nd 1830 and maybe the daffodils were in flower on the day she was laid to rest.
