PROGRAMME SECRETARY

    Having been Acting Programme Secretary for the last five years I have decided that now is the time to let someone else take over the post.  The programme for 2012 is already completed and I will give every assistance to a new Programme Officer (you would not be "dropped in at the deep end!").  I have really enjoyed selecting the various topics and meeting the speakers but feel the branch would benefit from some new blood.  The Committee is a great team to work with and I know that they will continue to give any new Officer their full help and support.  If you are interested please see me for further details.  This job could quite easily be shared between two people.

PLEASE NOTE - Up to December 2012 there will definitely be a programme, but we do need someone to come forward as a Programme Secretary or there will be NO MORE LECTURES

Jean Ingham (Chairman and Acting Programme Secretary)

CHRISTMAS MEETING

The speaker at the Christmas Meeting will be Harold Hoggarth with an illustrated talk entitled: 
'The History of Puppets and Puppetry or That's the Way To Do It'

Please note this will take place on Wednesday, 7th December at the Peter Birtwistle Centre, Keighley Road, Colne
   Tickets cost £2.50 (includes refreshments and raffle) and will be on sale at the October and November meetings

DEATHS

One of our longest serving members, Victor Titherington, died in April just a few days before his 91st birthday. Victor, a very helpful and generous man, always seemed younger than his years. Having moved to Bury a few years ago he was unable to attend meetings but always maintained an interest in Branch activities.

John Birkett, who until prevented by ill health enjoyed coming to the meetings with his wife, Sheila. Always a cheerful and unassuming man, we will miss him.

To both their families we send our sincere condolences

PETITIONS

You may be interested in these petitions if you have not already seen them:

Research Copies for Birth, Marriage & Death Certificates for Genealogical Research Purposes.  Under current legislation, the GRO can only "release this information by means of the issue of a paper certified copy Certificate of the relevant entry, and payment of the relevant statutory fee for a certified copy.  "We request that this House enacts legislation to allow the General Register Office of England and Wales the ability to issue "uncertified" research copies of birth, marriage and death certificates ­ with a notice on the copies that they are uncertified, and have no legal authority ­ and that these may be obtained at a much lower cost than the current £9.25 per cert (for example £2) when ordered on­line and the GRO Index Reference is Provided, and that these may be issued in an electronic (email) format or a plain paper in the same way as The Republic of Ireland; this would enable family historians to buy many certificates for their research at a lower cost"   In the Republic of Ireland you can ask for an uncertified copy from Roscommon (their version of GRO) for €4.

If you wish to add your name to this petition details can be found at; http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/1792

An ePetition in Support of Public Libraries is available at http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/1269 Public Libraries are the responsibility of the Department for Culture, Media and Sport.  100,000 signatures are needed to trigger a possible Parliamentary debate. The petition reads as follows:

I, the undersigned, believe that libraries are an essential local educational and information resource yet with many libraries under threat, the future of the library service is at risk.  I want to see the value of libraries recognised at both local and national levels and I am calling on the Government to honour both its commitment to act as a champion of the library service, and its duty of oversight to ensure that a comprehensive and efficient library service is provided.

DAY TRIP to YORK & BORTHWICK ARCHIVES

by Sylvia Marshall & Mary Jackson

    This trip, on Wednesday 27th July, proved popular, and 55 of us set off on the coach in anticipation of a good day out, helped by a free tube of sweets each and a guide with map to York attractions.  Just before Harrogate we took a 'comfort stop' at Darley Mill Centre – a chance to use the facilities, stretch our legs in the morning sunshine and admire the working water wheel.  Before setting off again, there were raffle prizes to be won.  First prize, a free Rigby’s trip for two, won by Maureen Lockwood, and four M&S £5 vouchers – won by Brian Pearson, Pat Kelly, Barbara Graham and Maz Catterall.  A voucher for free entry to York Museum was won by Bob Heap.  We arrived at York Railway Station just after midday, and those 28 who wanted to 'do their own thing' in York disembarked.  How to fill five hours in York when there is so much to see and do?

    Some visited the Minster, where you could view stonemasons at work restoring the stonework of the tower.  Others enjoyed the newly opened History of York Museum, where the Antiques Roadshow crew was setting up stall for the following day.  No doubt many wandered along the Shambles and other narrow shopping streets looking for bargains in the Sales.  This couple decided to walk the two mile circuit of the medieval walls, encountering en route a grass­cutting robot, noisily working on the sloping grass banks, whilst nearby sat a council worker controlling the device!

    The 27 who did not choose to explore the shops and sites of York itself, were treated to an unexpected and unplanned sightseeing coach trip, passing York Race Course and the large and imposing red brick buildings of Terry’s Chocolate Factory, before eventually arriving at the Heslington University Campus.  The Borthwick Archives, one of the largest collections in the country, are housed in a relatively new department of a University Building, reached by a flight of steep steps (flooding is never likely to be a problem!).  After what turned out to be a rather lengthy signing in process and playing hide and seek with our possessions in their lockers, two groups, led by their Archivist, Dr.Amanda Jones, and her Assistant, Dr.Paul Dryburgh, were shown round various departments, given explanations of their functions and shown their vast, very well organized holdings.  As expected, they have the usual computers, fiche readers, etc., for doing research, but we were also allowed into their air-conditioned strong room, with all its very impressive storage on miles of modern shelving – all controlled at the touch of a button.

    However, most fascinating was the conservation department, where the enthusiastic Conservationist, who obviously knew and really loved her job, gave us a concise, but very comprehensive explanation of the work and various methods used to preserve documents for future generations – whoever imagined that it sometimes involves 'washing documents in water' – but don’t try this at home!  Once back in York there was the opportunity to relax by the riverside, watching the cruise boats taking tourists up and down the river, before making our way back to the coach for the journey back across the border.  Many thanks to Mary Jackson for organizing such an enjoyable trip and making sure everything went to plan, even going so far as acting as a human SatNav for our driver!

JAMES MOORHOUSE by ROD MOORHOUSE

    I am very fortunate to possess a family history document written by my Grandfather, John William Moorhouse.  His beautiful handwriting is easy to read although the account of his relatives does become complicated, especially as there is no family tree to refer to.  The first part of this document is a transcript of a conversation with his father, James Moorhouse before his death in 1899.  He said he was anxious to pass on his life story to future generations and so asked my grandfather to write it down. In this article extracts from John William’s transcript are printed in italics.

    Born in 1822, James Moorhouse grew up in Skipton where, from the age of eight he worked at Sedgwick’s cotton mill.  Tragedy struck in 1842 when he lost his job, "Owing to the introduction of new machinery I was thrown out of work along with others.  I received from Mr Sidgewick £10 when I finished, some of this I had saved myself and some he had added.  My parents were so poor; I had to get work, so I left Skipton and walked to Burnley, Lancs., where my brother, William had a pot shop.  I worked for him for a short time and then I took a cellar and started for myself, selling pots and buying rags and bones etc.  I was then about twenty two years of age."

    Soon after James started his business he decided to get married, but seems to have set about it in a most unusual way,  “I thought I would look for a wife ... I had noticed two young women living opposite my cellar, one of them in particular, was a very good worker, who had smiled at me once or twice, but we had never spoken.  One night as she came home from the mill, I was emptying a crate of pots and as she passed me I said to her, 'Does ta want a husband lass?' she replied, 'I don’t want a fool making of.'  No more was said, but next day or so I went to the Parish church to put the askings in.  When I was asked for the girl's name, to my dismay, I did not know it.  So I returned and called at a shop in the same street and asked the owner the name of the girls.  The owner said their names were Ann and Sarah Tillotson, but she did not know which I required.  So back I went to the Vicar and gave Ann as the girl I wanted to marry.  Luckily it turned out right.  Imagine the two sisters' surprise, when, on going to church next Sunday the names of Ann Tillotson and James Moorhouse were called out for the first time.  However this led to our acquaintance and we were married soon after.  We were married in 1842."

    The 1851 census records James Moorhouse, aged 29 and born near Skipton with his wife Ann, also aged 29, living at 25 New Market Place, Whalley, a district of Burnley.  James is an 'Earthenware Dealer'.

    By 1861 there had been a dramatic change in their circumstances.  According to the census record, James Moorhouse, born in Skipton is living with his wife Ann in Providence Terrace, Habergham Eves, in Burnley.  They have no children.  James is now described as a 'bilder'.  In the transcript of his life story, he explains how they progressed.  "After six years in the Glass and china trade, we sold out and went into the building trade in Burnley.  The town was growing fast and workman's houses were wanted.  Later I commenced on my own and erected some two hundred houses in Burnley, Padiham and Accrington Road district, selling them as they were finished ... "

    As a builder James prospered, so that at the age of 40, he had made enough money to retire,  "... and I did so.  We had no children and for the next four years we lived quite comfortably ...."   But then in 1866, an awful tragedy occurred.  "Suddenly to my great sorrow, my wife died after twenty four years of marriage.  I fell ill after her death and my life was despaired of." 

    James eventually recovered from this illness and the loneliness caused by the death of his first wife and so " ... after twelve months ... I remarried Elizabeth Ellen Robinson, who had helped me during my illness, along with others.  She was twenty one years younger than myself ... We lived in Burnley [Accrington Road] for eight years after our marriage and during this time I started building again ... "  James and Elizabeth soon had a family " ... my wife had four children, Sarah Ann, Olive, James and John William.  The latter was a delicate child and because of this we removed to Blackpool ..."  So James and his family left Burnley and never returned.  He worked as a builder in Blackpool and then decided to retire once again.  "After six years in Blackpool, during which we had two more children born, Currer and Elizabeth Ellen [Nellie], I decided to return to Yorkshire, the County of my birth.  I returned to Skipton in 1880, with my wife and family and remained there for the rest of my life."

    1891: The census for this year records James Moorhouse, aged 70 and born in Bradley, living at 27 Gargrave Road, [‘Peace Villa’] Skipton with his wife Elizabeth who is now 47 years old.  They have five children living at home including my Grandfather, John William who, at 17 years of age is a cotton twister.

    So the course of James’s life had gone full circle on three levels; following his early life in Skipton he moved to Burnley, then to Blackpool and finally back to Skipton.  During that time he was happily married but then widowed followed by a second marriage and a large family.  Through hard work and with the support of his wives he progressed from poverty to prosperity.  James Moorhouse, my Great Grandfather died in 1899 at the age of 77.  He is buried with his first wife in Burnley.  I am not sure where, but perhaps in Habergham Eaves?

FORMER PUPILS OF COLNE

Former pupils of Colne's George Street & Lord Street Schools - submitted by Keith Baldwin

    During my research into my family history I discovered that my father's uncle, Thomas Baldwin, had been headmaster at George-street and Lord-street junior schools.  When he retired in 1914, the Colne Times published an article celebrating his career and achievements.  The article itself is rather long-winded, but contains a reference to all the great and the good who were pupils of Thomas Baldwin.  Some of the names I recognized immediately to be of local importance, so I thought that a list of them all might be of interest to local family historians.  I have given details of the profession followed by these pupils when given  – see tables at end of this article.

The article also lists all those who were formerly assistant teachers under Mr Baldwin and who became heads of schools: -

    Bentley, F H, Colne National School, Exchange Street

    Cass, West-street Council School

    Folley, E W, West-street Council School

    Halstead, W A, Laneshawbridge Council School

    Rothwell, W, Nelson Secondary School

    Smart, J, Cheapside School, Burnley

    Snowden, T, Primet Council School

Some former George-street teachers who are now known under other names are as follows: -

    Blakey, A (Miss) - Wildman, J L (Mrs)

    Deakin, S (Miss) - Lomas

    Mrs Green, Effie - Sydenham, Mrs (New Zealand)

    Tetlow (Miss) - Crossley (Mrs)

Two former Lord-street teachers have gone abroad, these being Miss Blackburn (now married) to South Africa, and Miss Brown to Canada

Miss Lomax, who has been associated with Mr Baldwin as scholar and student for 35 years is still a member of the Lord-street staff, as has also Miss Stansfield, for many years a teacher in the Art School at Colne; and Mrs Cass, who came as an assistant to George Street along with Mr Cass

Many other former George Street and Lord Street scholars are now serving as assistant teachers in the Council Schools of the Borough, amongst these being the following: -

Ayre, Miss I
Busfield, Miss N G
Cass, Miss B
Chalmers, Miss M A
Croasdale, Miss M E

Extract from the article referring to scholarships or exhibitions

    A feature of the history of George Street School was the long succession of scholarships won by the students year after year.  From 1882 to 1900 only two exhibitions were available, and these were held at the Burnley Grammar School, and were offered for competition in the area within a radius of six miles from Burnley.  Twenty-two of these were awarded to George Street pupils, as follows: -­
1882, Joseph Petty; 1883, John Smith; 1884, Samuel Smith and Randolph S Pilling; 1883, John R Sutcliffe; 1886, Ben Green; 1887, John W Cook and Henry Dodgson; 1888, John Norton Hey; 1889, George L Ayre; 1890, Fred Capstick; 1895, Wilson H Hey; 1897, William A Rycroft and Rennie Cook; 1898, Guy Halfhead and John R Fothergill; 1899, George Shaw; 1900, Thomas Foulds; 1901, Melbourne Dewhurst, Willie Benson and Albert E Wilmore; 1902, William Lund

    A few of these were special scholarships provided by Mr John Smith, as some recognition of his indebtedness to George Street School.  In 1900, the Lancashire County Council, for the first time, offered exhibitions to North-East Lancashire, and of eight so offered, five were awarded to George Street scholars, namely: -
Alfred Hargreaves, Ruth Greenwood, Thomas Foulds, Margaret Hyde and Wesley Sutcliffe.

    In 1901, three of these came to George Street School, being awarded to; -
Amy Armistead, Willie Benson, and Winifred Wiltshire

    During the twelve years at Lord-street School, 101 exhibitions have been awarded to pupils in the School by the Lancashire County Council, the Colne Corporation, the Colne Grammar School Foundation Trust and the Co-operative Society; a unique record, with an average of over eight scholarships a year.

    It was a fitting climax to the work of Mr Baldwin that in the closing year (1914) of his labours at Lord Street, all the six exhibitions offered by the Lancashire County Council should be won by scholars from his school.  The total value of the scholarships, won by scholars who have passed through Mr Baldwin’s hands is not far short of £2,000, which does not include the successes won by these students after leaving the school.  Former students who have won Lancashire County Council £60 Scholarships for weaving are - William A Rycroft, Harry Riddiough and John T Kirk, whilst Messrs Neville Hacking and Tom Hartley have each won Lancashire County Council weaving scholarships of £30 value

    The full article was published in the Colne & Nelson Times on October 9th, 1914 and can be found on microfilm at Colne Library.
