Hi everybody,
 
I love this website. It seems to have everything you want to know about Barnoldswick and surrounding villages. I came to live here with my family in 2005 just because it felt like home. That is due to my Brotherton and Salkeld roots. 
 
My Great Grandfather, Richard Henry Brotherton was first recorded living in Earby in 1892 when he married my Great Grandmother, Isabella Salkeld. Isabella was the illegitimate daughter of William Taylor, schoolmaster and Rebecca Salkeld of Earby. Isabella's father's name had not been known in recent generations probably due to the fact she was born when her mother, Rebecca was just 14 years old. Bit of a scandle there then! It was only when I received a copy of Richard and Isabella's marriage certificate that one piece of the puzzle was solved. The other being any information on William Taylor.
 
The Salkelds were orginally from Grassington and Airton. Rebecca was the daughter of James and Margaret and one of originally twelve children. Eight sisters survived. The Salkelds pretty much remained in Earby living at Timothy Croft Cottage in 1871,  Selbourne Terrace, James Street and Aspen Lane through the other census years.
 
Richard Henry was born in Burnley and somehow came to meet Isabella who was living at Selbourne Terrace in 1891. No doubt through working in the mills.
 
In 1901 Richard and Isabella lived at 4 Brook Street Earby. They went on to have fourteen children, my Grandfather, James Brotherton being  the second eldest of the surving ten children. Sadly, my Great Grandparents lost four children in infancy whilst they were living in Green End Avenue.
 
My father recalls Isabella and her "table knocking". She was involved with the Earby Spiritualist Church, much to the amusement of my Grandfather.
 
At some point in the 1920's the Brotherton's descended on Barnoldswick living at 4 Gisburn Road at the time of my Great Uncle Robert's marriage and 10 Oak Terrace, Coates in 1932 at the time of Great Uncle John's marriage.
 
Richard Henry died in 1943 at Craven Street and Isabella survived him until 1947 at 5 Wellhouse Street. Isabella seemed to live a busy life having involvment with the Co-Operative Women's Guild of Barnoldswick and the local ramblers association. From photographs I have of her she was a very smart and well-liked lady.
 
My father, Dennis Leonard Brotherton, was born 1933 at 6 Hartley Street, Earby to James and Elizabeth Layfield. My father lost his older brother, James Layfield Brotherton with the sinking of the troop- ship HMR Lancastria on 17 June 1940 at the young age of just 20. His elder sister, Agnes married Harold Child in Bradford in 1939 at the time my Grandfather took the family there for a short time.  By 1940 they were back living at 40 Longroyd Road. My Grandfather remaining in Earby after the death of my Grandmother in  1951 at Boot Street.  Sadly, my Grandfather died the year before I was born in 1966 at Valley Gardens, Earby.
 
Well that's my very basic connection with Barnoldswick and Earby. I have lived here in Barlick now for about three years. Feels like forever. I am just getting familiar with the place and taking walks around to discover all the wonderful nooks and crannies and places of fascinating history. Just last Friday I strolled up the Forty Steps though I only counted 38. I shall have to recount. I have spent many hours reading Stanley's pages on local history. What a joy! I just wish I could take it all in.
 
I would welcome any comment on my ramblings or any news of any recollections of my Brotherton or Salkeld families. I am just glad to be home.
 
Very best regards
 
Amanda

Hi Lou, and Amanda,

Great to hear from you as well Lou.

OGFB is and has become an amazing source of information and a way for long lost families to piece together and preserve their family history long after we are gone - so once again thanks to Stanley and the other founding members for such a great site.

I'm always happy to add to the collection of course so hopefully I've managed to upload the Salkild image in the next hour.

By the way Joseph's father was Wilson Sakild and in researching Annie and Joseph's children I stumbled across some of their relative's who had a family bible with Annie and Joseph's information + more on the Salkild's. You'll probably have much of it already but maybe it will help in cross-referencing dates. I'll post the notes ASAP, that they sent me.

Amanda and Lou, I hope you both have a great festive season

Cheers Shane

Hi Amanda and Lou,

Here are the notes that Leslie and Elaine Salkeld sent me - dated Dec 2005

Wilson Salkeld was born 7.10.1838, married Mary born 26.4.1840, on 14.10.1860.  She had seven children Richard 26.9.61, John 21.8.63, Joe 2.1.1867, Ellen 14.4.1869, Sam 11.1.1872, Albert 27.7.1874 and Mary 16.10.1876. Mary died the next day 17.10.1876 - probably childbirth complications. Wilson then remarried Sarah Pilkington 2.5.1877.  She had three children: Sarah 17.6.1878, Malinda 20.4.1881, and Wilson 25.10.1882.  Albert son of Wilson and Mary born 27.7.1974 was my grandfather who married Ellen Drabble in 1905. Joseph my father was born 21.4.1907.  Joseph Salkeld born 2.1.1869 was my grandfarthers brother so Amelia and Wilson were my fathers full cousins. Harry was born 9.6.1898 and died 1.5.1921. We can find no mention of a Florence. 
Hope that helps in some way, regards Leslie

I'm not sure if this helps but as I mentioned earlier maybe it is a good cross-reference of dates for you both.

Cheers Shane

Here are a few more updates on Salkelds from the marriage of Joseph Salkeld and  Annie Booock.

Wilson salkeld b: 7 Oct 1891, Burnley. d: 29 Jan 1968, m: Nell Jackson, b: 9 Oct 1891, d: 29 Mar 1986 - I do not know of any children.

Amelia Salkeld b: 13 Dec 1893, Burnley, died 18 June 1963, m: 1919 to Hubert Stansfield, b: 20 June 1891, d: 26 June 1954. One child Annie Stansfield, d: 2002/03. No other known children.

I also have some more Salkeld information from another child of Wilson Salkeild b: 1839 in Grassington. The child was Albert Salkeld b: 1875 Habergham Eaves, m: 1905 Ellen Drabble. One son Joseph Salkeild, b: 21 June 1907, m: unknown. one son Leslie Salkeild - still alive.

You may already have this information but I still hope it helps a little.

Shane, dead easy. When you put the pic up on OG and it's accepted copy the url that comes up briefly and paste that into the topic using the insert image Icon in the menu of the quoick reply box. It's the tree next to the smiley on the left. Altarnatively you can get the url by opening a pic in the pics section, clicking for the larger image and laft clicking the image for properties. You can copy the url from there.

Brilliant Stanley, many thanks. If I'd have known is was relatively easy I would have done it. I think when you're off the site for awhile you often forget the little things.

Lets hope Amanda logs on one of these days to see the picture of her relatives.

Happy New Year

Shane

Hi Shane and Lou

 

Thank you for the posts. Been so busy over Christmas figuring out how to pay for it all I clean forgot about t'internet.

Thanks, Shane, for the info on the families. I know some names and date for the Grassington Salkelds but some of the info you have posted is new to me which is terrific. I shall be noting it down and adding to my tree.

 The photo is terrific. I also have posted a photo of a couple of the Salkeld sisters two or three months back. I think I may have put them in the places section as the photo was of Green End Avenue. If I haven't already done so I should post the full family photo of the seven sisters.

As my battery is running low I shall log out.

 

Best regards and happy New Year to all those related and reading this.

 

Amanda

Hi Amanda
      I went to school with a lad called Tom Layfield from Earby, about 1946 I should think. I'm now in New Zealand, and my daughter had a friend at school called Salkeld, her Father was from the Barlick/Earby area I think, he certainly knew it well. Probably related to you. He now lives in Hastings N.Z. and is blind.
Good luck with your research,
Gordon

Welcome to the site 'Eastview'. These old topics never die so keep an eye on it, I'll lay a small bet you get a response. Some lovely people on here and they will be pleased to talk to you.

thanks for the welcome Stanley . Must admit the whole thing about links to barlick came up when I took a trip Tuesday . I realised I have 2 cousins who live just across the Auckland bridge that I have never met and looked for a common link - that wouldve been my Uncle Bob who left Barnoldswick for New Zealand . Both my dad and brother are now back living in the area and my mum is an invalid in a old age home over there . Local historianm and old fart hey -sounds just like my dad
