Bessy JOHNSON, though a child of Richard and Mary JOHNSON, is not identified on Frank Wright's family tree. Mary would have been 25 when Bessy was born, with plausible five year gap before Richard Fisher JOHNSON's birth. Bessy would have been 12 in the 1851 census, but is not recorded, suggesting that she could have died, left home to go in to service, or belonged to another JOHNSON family in Holme.

Mary as a widow
|The 1881 census shows Mary to be a widow farming Lock Farm with two of her sons and five
employees. This would seem to be too many people for 15 acres, unless it was some form of
intensive farming such as market gardening.
Lock Farm is at the head of the Market Weighton Canal, situated on the old road between Holme and Weighton.

"The front part of the house was built in 1774, as the lock keepers house, when the canal was dug and was called Lock House. All the land belonged to the owners of Holme Hall. The main canal is to the right of the house and is at the end of the buildings. The off shoot was dug by George Hudson, the railway king and it was intended to take it through to Londesborough, as he lived at Londesborough Hall, but they ran out of water so it only went to Stray Farm on the main Market Weighton to Holme road. It was known as the Vavasour canal. When all the land of Holme Hall was sold, Lock House was given land and became Lock Farm.'

Tom Sergison farmed there for many years. The house is now empty and looking rather derelict. Christopher Payne, who now lives at the first farm - Stray Farm, says it is a mess, with the ceilings coming down, but hasn't been demolished. The canal was partly filled in past the lock. Later the yard was covered by corrugated iron as a fold yard."
Lock Farm lies in land very close to the old St Williams' Roman Catholic Reformatory School.
GRO death suggests that Mary died in the 4th quarter of 1887. Whilst she appears in the 1881 census she is missing from the 1891 census.
