History of the Bean Family
It is supposed that the family of Grosier came over from France after the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes in 1685. Cuthbert Grosier was settled in Newcastle-on-Tyne in the wine trade. He was twice married and all his children are by his firs wife Elizabeth Ridley, who was of good Yorkshire family, since merged in the Matthew White Ridleys. He died at an advanced age and was buried 13 Oct 1732: his first wife died 2 Aug 1719. He left a considerable property to his one surviving daughter Catherine amongst other estates that of "Moorfields": but the title deeds were lost in transit from Newcstle to London and in spite of the most strenuous efforts on the part of his descendants, were not recovered. Catherine Grosier was baptised 29 Dec 1709 and married John Dickenson and was the mother of Anne who married Alexander Bean (see Page 8 ). It is beleived that they were married at St Andrews Church, Holborn and Anne was born 8 June 1746 and was registered in the Church of St. Martin's in the Fields.
