Slingsby Bethel, the Lord Mayor of London of your subject line, was Lord
Mayor in 1755, not 1655.
His namesake, another Slingsby Bethel (1617-1697), the son of Walter
Bethel and Mary Slingsby was the brother of Hugh Bethel who married
Frances Frankland and of Willaim Bethel who married Bridget Bourchier.
Their father Walter died in 1623. This Slingsby Bethel married Mary Burrell.
He was Sheriff of London in 1680 but is sometimes referred to
erroneously as Lord Mayor of London. He famously appears in John
Dryden's poem, Absalom and Achitofel.
As to any other Slingsby Bethells, I know nothing of them but I do know
a little of the earlier Bethel and Frankland families.
