Administrative historyThe Bannisters came to Easingwold from Brafferton/Helperby (where one branch of the family still live). John Bannister son of John Bannister of Brafferton was apprenticed in Easingwold, as a chemist in 1834. The younger John married Anne Maxwell Calway in 1844 and they had seven children. He died in 1859 leaving Annie to develop the business of grocers, wine and spirit and general provision merchants, seed merchants etc. She died in 1901, and of all her children only John Charles (1856-1934) had children of his own who grew up to continue the business: Harry (1883-1969) and Walter (1890-1973). Harry had no children, and the present Mr JC Bannister is the son of Walter: he has now separated the seed from the grocery business.
