Hi,

My grandfather, Egar Harrison, (John William, James T., John, Elisha) was born in Barnoldswick in 1909.   He married Sarah Ellen Manley whose mother was Harriet Cowgill.  Thanks to the information on this site I have been able to identify Harriet's brother, Thomas and his wife, Florrie, in a photo with my mother.  Just the start, I'm sure. Great Stuff!

In my Great Aunt's book 'Tales Of The Nelson Inn' the story of the Manley's begin's with John Manley. John Manley was baptised New Church In Pendle 26.12.1731. The record states his father as a 'John Manley'. He may have been the son of a Jno Manley who married Alice Cook/e 1.5.1731 but obviously there are issues around the dates.  However later referances do seem to confirm that Jno and Alice are John's parents.  In which turn Jno may be the son of John Manley. A baptism date is given for a Jno Manley  New Church in Pendle 17.11.1708.

John Manley married Eleanor Sellers 19.11.1757. There were at least 6 children: William 1758, James 1762, John 1765, Betty 1768 , Peggy 1771 and Joshua Joseph 1774. John Manley died 1785 New Church In Pendle age 54.
 
William bapt 4.6.1758 married Mary Holt. St Bartholomews Church, Colne on 18.7.1778. There were two children Oates c 25.12.1780 and Olive c 17.4.1784. The abode is recorded as Barrowford. In 1786 William Manley bought a Public House at Lane Head Bradley. He may have had an inhertitance from his father who had died the year before. This buiding has been described as a 'Beer House' and it had some notoriety its previous owner having been executed at Lancaster for producing counterfit money. About 1800 William Manley spotted a business opportunity with the opening of the new turnpike road. He applied for and got permission to transfer his licence and build a new pub at what is now the intersection of Barkerhouse Road and Leeds Road - The New Inn. When he retired shortly after this his daughter Olive and her husband took over as tenants. The Rushton Family remained their until the Inn was sold to Astley and Brown later in the Century. 

When William died in 1811 (not 1813 as in my Great Aunt's book) he left the property to his son and his daughter but the provisions are once again clear. It was theirs for life but they could not sell. They appear to have tried to sell but the sale fell through. Most likely they realised they could not sell. Again the Will seems to suggest this provision did not apply to their children at least not in the same context. 

Oates Manley son of William Manley and Mary Holt married his cousin Margaret 'Peggy' Hindle on 18.2.1800 at St Bartholomews Church, Colne. Oates took self employment to new heights and seems to have instilled the value of business in his 11 children all of whom learned to read and write unusual in those days. Oates held a tenanted farm in Lower Bradley across from the farm run by his Aunt Ann (Holt) and her second husband Matthew Pollard,  but he  was also Surveyer of Roads for Great Marsden and seems to have run a farm shop as well. When the opportunity came for him to buy the farm he decided instead to leave his money in the Turnpike Roads. When he retired as Surveyor of Roads his son Thomas took over the role. 

Peggy Manley died 21.7.1845. Oates died 13.9.1847. They were both buried at The Methodist Church, Albert Road, Colne. In his Will Oates left his stock and household goods to his children Eleazer and Margaret. Eleazer also got a joint share in any property as did his twin Elkanah. The other children were to have a share of any money and investments.

thanks, BarryS,

My own research confirms your aunt's writings back as far as John and Eleanor Sellers (The Lancashire OnLine record has the transcribed spelling as Cellar, although there is a witness, Henery Sellers).

 Good to know that I have been on the right track.

Hi again,

BarryS (or anyone else,  do you have any thoughts on the following.

Baptisms: 17 Feb 1760 St Bartholomew, Colne, Lancashire, England
Nelly Manley - daugr of John Manley & Nelly
Abode: Barrowfd
Register: Baptisms 1756 - 1774, Page 19, Entry 10
Source: LDS Film 1471023

It fits nicely into the 1758-1762 gap although I do see an infant, Betty, buried at that time as well (can't find a definitive record of a baptism though).

Hi Debbt

I am reasonably certain it is Sellers for the reason you have given, and because this name exists earlier in the records rather than Cellar/s.

I am aware of the Nelly Manley entry. I have wondered again if this is a missname for the reason you have given.

I will get back to you on this ASAP.

Reading BarryS's posts inspired me and I have just ordered Tales of the Nelson Inn (secondhand).  It cost a bomb by the time I converted the price to Aussie dollars but will be worthwhile just to have for the kids as they get older and interested in their roots.  Hopefully it will arrive and my credit card will have withstood the battering.

Hi Debbt. I have sent an on sight e-mail to your inbox. Please check.

Hi Sunray10. Not sure about this Avatar business.  I thought Avatar was the name of a film.

It is, but an avatar is also a little picture/image on the left-hand side in the centre of each comment you make. You can have your own if you want - any picture reduced to size 85-100. Mine is the blond lady with silver wings !!!

Thanks, BarryS.  I have responded (although it took me time to find the on site emails as I didn't know they existed) :).
