I am wondering....if Mr Bell might have been interested in Margret as being his wife as he was single and we know that he was aware of her qualities and impressed by her beauty.Maybe the fact that he knew Margret was in love with Mr Thornton prevented him not proposing to her.Could Mr Bell have had a kind of antipathy against Mr Thornton ?

Mr. Bell was Margaret's godfather. Margaret was heir to his estate. Had he been a younger man, I think he might have broached marriage. None-the-less, he quickly became aware that she loved someone else.
