Event Date Place Description Sources
Marriage [E0014] 21/11/1877 Presbyterian Church, 2 Catharine Street, Liverpool, Lancashire Rev. John Thomas B.A. officiated. 4 5 6

Occupation [E0498] 1884 Victoria Machine Works, Industrial Road, Sowerby Bridge, Halifax, West Riding, Yorkshire Mechanics shop as occupier: voters at Industrial Road, SB, as occupiers of rateable value of £12 and under £50 rental. Advertising for whitesmith for sheet-iron work at VMR, SB. I conclude that VMR was on Industrial Road. Products included Victoria separators and Mayer separators. 8 9a

Residence [E0383] between 1887 and 1891 Willow Hall, Sowerby Bridge, Halifax, West Riding, Yorkshire Start date established in the Monthly Tidings article, recording the Catharine St. Presbyterian Church's thanks to Thomas for almost 20 years service. 1891 census gives Willow Hall Lane - if in another house here, that may explain the discordance re address. 5a 4 11a 12a
