Landed proprietor farming 200 acres arable (employing 5 men & 7 women)" listed together with his unmarried daughter Ann Bell and a niece, Dorothea L. Bell aged 18. The census shows two further houses at Menslaws which are occupied by the land stewart, Mark Turnbull and his family which consist of his wife and six children aged between 1 and 14 years of age. James Buchan, an agricultural labourer, his wife and grand daughter live in the second house which is recorded as Menslaws Hind's House.
The New Statistical Account of Scotland records that Mr. George Bell was the only heritor present [others being absentee heritors] and that his farms his own property with great skill and success [p. 287]. In commenting on the accommodation for farm servants it notes "Two cottages belonging to George Bell, Esq. of Menslaws, deserve particular notice, for their superior accommodation and comfort. Either of them would have been considered a very comfortable farm house, fifty or a hundred years ago. The floor of one of them surpasses, in one respect, any thing of the kind perhaps in the whole county. It is made of a compost of lime and gravel; and for hardness and smoothness, and appearance, equals any covered with flags, and will last, if properly taken care of, as this seems to be, longer than one laid with freestone flags. " [p. 292]
George Bell died on 25 October 1859 in Menslaws, Jedburgh, at the age of 79 at 10.15 in the morning.1
He was buried on 28 October 1859 in the Old Churchyard, Ancrum.5
