Mack sent the following comments in November 2011.
I am doing some research on the Simpson Family in Harrogate. David Simpson Atkinson was the son of Sarah Atkinson, nee Simpson, who in turn was the daughter of David Simpson, thrice Mayor of Harrogate. David Simpson was a builder who developed the Duchy Estate in Harrogate and Laid the foundation stone of the Royal Hall. Her grandfather was James Simpson, again a local builder, Improvement Commissioner, and twice Mayor after Incorporation in 1881. Both were prominent and well respected aldermen and freemasons.
