John ASHWORTH, Grave_John_Ashworth_d1847

1. John ASHWORTH1,2,3 was born in 1782 in England.2,3 Censuses and his headstone indicate that John was born in about 1782. There were many John Ashworths baptised in Rochdale around this time and, without further information, it is not possible to ascertain which, if any, of these is the one who married Sally. John married Sally Holt ASHWORTH on January 8, 1803 in St Chad's, Rochdale, Lancashire, England. He appeared in the census in 1841. 1841 Drake Street, Castleton

Sally, 57, born in county
Robert, 15, born in county
John died on October 24, 1847 in Rochdale, Lancashire, England. John, flannel manufacturer of Drake Street, died 24 October 1847 age 65. His will is held at Lancashire Archives reference 1179/6. John was buried in October, 1847 in Rochdale Cemetery.2,3 The address was: Rochdale, Metropolitan Borough of Rochdale, Greater Manchester, England.

 

The burial of some of the earlier children, baptised when John was said to be a weaver, but living in Drake Street at the time of their deaths, further ties these as all being one family and John changing his status to mill owner. John’s business was called “John Ashworth & Sons”, although at the time that he started being described as woollen manufacturer his sons were at most teenagers. At the time when John’s son John died the local paper reported; “We believe the firm originated with the father of the subject of this notice – “Old John Ashworth”, as he was familiarly called – at a time when hand loom weaving was greatly in vogue, and that many such looms were employed for the firm in Great George-street and Back Drake-street.” [Rochdale Observer 30 March 1878].

 

Sally Holt ASHWORTH,4 daughter of Robert HOLT ( - ) and Sarah HOLT ( - ), was born in January, 1784 in Lancashire, England. She appeared in the census in 1851. 1851 148 Drake Street

Elizabeth Radcliffe, servant 24 house maid, b Norland Yorkshire
Sally died on August 2, 1862 in Lancashire.

 

Sally Holt married John Ashworth in the parish church of Rochdale on 8 January 1803. The licence shows that John was a weaver from Waithland, Castleton, Rochdale. Sally was from Dunkirk, Spotland, Rochdale The licence says that they were both over 21 but that was not true in the case of Sally – her age at the time of censuses and at her death, as shown on her headstone, consistently indicate that she was born in about 1785/6 so was only about 18, which also ties in with her baptism if she had been baptised as a baby.

 

Sally Holt ASHWORTH and John ASHWORTH had the following children:

Second Generation

2. John ASHWORTH,5 son of John ASHWORTH and Sally Holt ASHWORTH, was born on June 4, 1805 in Rochdale, Lancashire, England. He was baptised on July 14, 1805 in Rochdale. The address was: Union Street Wesleyan Methodist, Rochdale, Lancashire, England. He made a will. John had apparently left two executors for his will, neither of whom was able to act. It is likely that one of these was Jane. His son Thomas administered his estate until he died a few months later and the running of the business and administration of the estate then fell to Thomas’ brother John who made considerable losses. In 1879 the mill, Victoria Mill and all its fixtures and fittings in Oldham Road, warehouses and offices in Great George Street and Back Drake Street, thirteen cottages and two “capital dwelling houses” [one occupied by John Ashworth] were all put up for sale. It is not known if the business retained any other premises from which it could carry on. Son John had been a woollen manufacturer in 1871 but has not been found in 1881.

John appeared in the census. 1841 Drake Street, Castleton, Rochdale

The fact that Betsy is still working for the family after at least ten years perhaps indicates that they were good employers.

John married Jane BAKER on June 19, 1834 in St. James', Wardleworth, Lancashire, England. John married Jane Baker at Wardleworth, Rochdale on 19 June 1834. The marriage licence was for St James’ and showed John to be a woollen manufacturer of Drake Street and Jane to be of Yorkshire Street. They were both described as 21 or over. This marriage it would seem gave rise to the use of Baker as a middle forename which was to continue in the family for generations. John died on March 27, 1878. John died on 27 March 1878 age 72. His death was covered by the local newspaper; “We regret to have to record the death of an old and respected townsman – Mr John Ashworth – head of the firm of John Ashworth & Sons, woollen manufacturers, of Oldham Road Mills, one of the old well-established concerns of which Rochdale can boast so many… Mr late John Ashworth was for many years a most attentive man of business, and until a few weeks ago seemed to enjoy very robust health. He died at his residence, Larkfield, on Wednesday last, the 27th instant, at the good old age of 73 [72 according to his headstone].” [Rochdale Observer 30 March 1878].

 

Jane BAKER6 was born on September 2, 1812 in Rochdale.

 

John and Jane had several children but baptisms have only been found for two of them. There are very many Ashworths in Rochdale so it is quite possible that those baptisms which were found were children of another John and Jane but we know from censuses that they had children of those names born around that time.

 

Jane BAKER and John ASHWORTH had the following children:

 

+11

Emma ASHWORTH (1835- )

+12

Jane Baker ASHWORTH (c. 1838- )

+13

Eliza ASHWORTH (b.1840, bur.1843)

+14

Thomas Baker ASHWORTH (1844-1878)

+15

John ASHWORTH (1842- )

 

3. Robert ASHWORTH, son of John ASHWORTH and Sally Holt ASHWORTH, was born in July, 1803 in Castleton. He died on November 27, 1822 in Rochdale.

 

4. Edmund ASHWORTH, son of John ASHWORTH and Sally Holt ASHWORTH, was born on November 23, 1807. He was baptised on February 14, 1808. He died in June, 1825. He was buried on June 12, 1825 in Rochdale.

 

5. Ann ASHWORTH, daughter of John ASHWORTH and Sally Holt ASHWORTH, was born in 1810 in Rochdale. She died in August, 1818 in Rochdale.

 

6. Thomas ASHWORTH, son of John ASHWORTH and Sally Holt ASHWORTH, was born on December 16, 1815. He was baptised on March 3, 1819. In 1851 he was. Thomas is in the 1851 census as a flannel manufacturer.

 

7. Sarah ASHWORTH, daughter of John ASHWORTH and Sally Holt ASHWORTH, was born on March 5, 1818.

 

8. Mary Ann ASHWORTH, daughter of John ASHWORTH and Sally Holt ASHWORTH, was born on August 24, 1820.

 

9. Elizabeth ASHWORTH, daughter of John ASHWORTH and Sally Holt ASHWORTH, was born on January 10, 1823.

 

10. Robert ASHWORTH, son of John ASHWORTH and Sally Holt ASHWORTH, was born on December 10, 1826. He died on August 7, 1868.

Third Generation

11. Emma ASHWORTH,7 daughter of John ASHWORTH and Jane BAKER, was born on April 19, 1835.

 

12. Jane Baker ASHWORTH,8 daughter of John ASHWORTH and Jane BAKER, was born circa 1838 in Rochdale, Lancashire, England.

 

13. Eliza ASHWORTH,9 daughter of John ASHWORTH and Jane BAKER, was born in 1840. She was baptised on August 12, 1840. She was buried on March 3, 1843 in St Chad’s Rochdale.

 

14. Thomas Baker ASHWORTH,10 son of John ASHWORTH and Jane BAKER, was born on January 6, 1844 in Rochdale. The children of Thomas and Elizabeth present something of a puzzle. Six names have been identified for whom no baptism records have been found for four and no certain birth registration for another. Two of them, John and Thomas look surprisingly close together unless John was baptised quite late but both have the family forename of Baker, although the original of the baptism register has not been seen. Neither John nor Thomas has been found in a census although the one census return where one would expect them still to be living at home, 1881, has not been found. Nonetheless this does seem to be a correct list because it was stated in 1878 that the family had six children, the two eldest being girls and the rest boys. Thomas married Elizabeth B HEYES on April 1, 1869 in Southport, Lancashire, England. On 1 April 1869 Thomas married Elizabeth Heys in Southport. He stated that his residence was Southport though he only had to have been there for a couple of weeks to be entitled to do that. His brother John had married a woman from Southport the year previously, so perhaps that was how Thomas had met Elizabeth. They were aged 25 and 22 respectively at the time and Elizabeth’s father was Henry, a hotel keeper. Thomas appeared in the census in 1871. 1871 158 Drake Street, Castleton
Thomas Baker Ashworth, 27, attorney & solicitor, born Rochdale
Elizabeth, 24, born Southport
Gertrude 1, born Rochdale
Beatrice 1m, born Rochdale
Margaret Hatley, 18, nurse maid, born Ireland
Thomas was in Manchester, England. Unlike his immediate forebears, Thomas trained to be a solicitor in Manchester and then got his articles in Cockermouth before returning to Rochdale. Thomas died on September 30, 1878 in Derby Hotel, Bury, Lancashire, England. Thomas died suddenly on 30 September 1878 while in Bury on business. He had been suffering from heart problems and had been feeling quite ill for the past few days. The inquest concluded that he died from natural causes, most likely heart disease. A long piece was written about him in the local paper which spoke strongly and at length about his professional ability and dedication and also referred to the many who looked upon him as “a hearty and sincere friend”. The Chief Constable spoke of “the energy, and the earnestness, and the ability which the deceased had invariably manifested in advocating or defending the interests of his clients”. The streets to the cemetery were lined with spectators and there was “a very large gathering … to witness the interment”. Thomas was a mason and was buried with masonic rites. His six children were aged between 7 years and less than 8 months.

 

Elizabeth B HEYES11,12 was born on February 17, 1847 in Southport.12 In 1891 she lived in Chorlton on Medlock, Lancashire, England.12 Relation to Head of House: Head.

15. John ASHWORTH, son of John ASHWORTH and Jane BAKER, was born in 1842. He married Sarah GAMON on September 26, 1868 in Christ Church, Southport, England.

 

Sarah GAMON was born in 1840.

 

John born 1842 [Q2 1842 Rochdale vol 21 page 697], age 26 married widow Sarah Gamon at Christ Church, Southport 26 September 1868, she 28 of Southport, late of Collingwood, Canada West, her father John Livsey cotton spinner. John’s brother Thomas was a witness. Sarah had married gentleman Richard Gamon of Collingwood, West Canada, a corn dealer’s son, at Bury in 1863.

His father died when he was a few months old. By 1891 his widowed mother was working as a publican in Manchester, Richard and two of his siblings living with her. It was here that Richard started working in the textile industry, then moving down to London. In 1891 Richard lived in Chorlton on Medlock.12 Relation to Head of House: Son. Richard married Elizabeth Jane Powell ASHWORTH in 1898. Richard married Elizabeth Jane Powell in late 1897 or early 1898 [Q1 1898 Ashton under Lyne vol 8d page 647], no parish record of the marriage has been found. Richard would only have been 20 or 21 at the time and Elizabeth about 17. Richard appeared in the census in 1901.

Richard died in September, 1950. The address was: Nottingham Cathedral, North Circus Street, Nottingham, UK. Richard died in hospital in September 1950 age 73. He was described as having been in indifferent health for some time. Mourners at his funeral, which was held at St Barnabas’ Cathedral, included very many councillors and city council officers, representatives of the Labour party, the police, sporting organisations, the University of Nottingham, the Lace Federation, the Conservative Association and a great number of individuals attending in a private capacity. [As a note of caution, the newspaper says Richard was an altar boy in the cathedral but that seems unlikely since he did not move to Nottingham until he was an adult, they perhaps confused him with his son Richard.]

Mr H Norman Smith, MP for South Nottingham, stated, “With the passing of Dick Ashworth, his family loses a devoted husband and father, I lose a warm-hearted friend, and Nottingham loses a self-sacrificing citizen, who, during three decades, gave lavishly of his best with no thought of reward save the satisfaction of serving the city in which he took a pride, and the causes in which he believed.”

The Nottingham Journal wrote: “Alderman Ashworth was a lover of sport, and a sportsman in the term’s widest sense. He had a cheerfulness and a sense of humour which made him a good companion. He was occasionally criticised for being something of a wishful thinker, for having grandiose ideas which had no place in the hard realities of the present day. He had, for instance, visions of turning the Trentside into a Continental lido, with a floating theatre and other somewhat fanciful attractions. Such a development may never be, but time may show that the alderman was not too ambitious for his adopted city. If the dreams materialise into fact Alderman Ashworth will be hailed, long after his passing, as a man of exceptional vision and foresight.”

 

Elizabeth Jane Powell ASHWORTH17,20 was born circa 1880 in Manchester, England.17,20 In 1901 she lived in Willesden, Middlesex, England.17 Relation to Head of House: Wife. On April 2, 1911 Elizabeth lived in West Bridgford.20 Marital Status: MarriedRelation to Head of House: Wife.

 

Richard was a keen sportsman playing lacrosse, cricket, golf and billiards. He became a director of Notts County Football Club and was president of the Nottingham Panthers [ice hockey] supporters’ club. Richard also sponsored Tom Blower, a famous Nottingham Channel swimmer.

In the First World War Richard served with the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders and certainly by the 1920s he had established his own business, RE Ashworth & Co, making lace curtains. The business was based in Stoney Street in the heart of the Nottingham Lace Market. He and Elizabeth lived for a while in Gedling Grove, then in West Bridgford, before moving to Plumtree Park in Keyworth in the late 1920s. Here Richard was able to spend time cultivating carnations and other flowers.

Richard had been a member of the Conservative party but his interest in social matters resulted in to moving to Labour and he was first elected for the Trent Ward of Nottingham for that party in 1923. He remained a City Councillor until his death. He was chosen by his party to be Sheriff of Nottingham in 1930 and four years later became Lord Mayor. He became an alderman of Nottingham in 1938 and was leader of the Nottingham Labour Party for the last four years of his life. It was said that during his year as sheriff he attended 400 engagements and nearly double that when he was Lord Mayor.

One record is closed because it is believed that this person is still alive. Being listed after David it probably refers to Judith. Patricia has not been found in the 1939 register so it may be that she, too, is thought to be still alive.
In 1941 Richard lived. The address was: Hickling, Nottingham, UK. By 1941 the family had bought the Manor House in Hickling. In October Agnes was advertising for a housekeeper, making it clear that daily help was kept, and in December she was seeking “one or two useful maids”, again making it clear that there was already daily help in place.
