Wow thank you so much for all this information! How amazing you are still in that house and wonderful to be able to look up its history.  I'm so glad to mentioned the link to Daniel Hinchliffe as he features in my link to the Glovers.  Daniel Hinchcliffe (1825-1906) was married to Rachel Rhodes (1822-1903) who had 3 children that I know of, Elizabeth (1854-1895) Joseph Hinchcliffe (1845) and Benjamin Hinchcliff (1851). My link is through Elizabeth who first married Lionel HIRST, the HIRSTs being another family invested in mill ownership with many talented professional members of their family - mill owners & engineers. Lionel was a surgeon and sadly died shortly after they were married. Seven years later Elizabeth married again to Harry CRAVEN (1860-1934) and had 4 children, Harold Clifford Henry Craven, Rachel M Craven, Daniel Hinchcliff Craven and Claude Lionel Craven. Daniel H CRAVEN married Gladys May (Kitty) GLOVER linking forever the Hinchcliff an Glover families. Their apparent only child Anthony Rene CRAVEN married Joan Muriel Clarke Irons, my Nan's sister! Phew!
One other little tidbit - I wondered where the 'Rene' name came from. Clarence Glover and his wife Mary Ann BULMER had 2 chidlren, Gladys May (above) and a son called Joseph Rene GLOVER (b 1893) so that's where it came from, but where did it come before that?! In 1901 census Clarence is in Laburnum House, and as you will know they had a visitor staying with them, one Rene Buggenhoud aged 28, a general merchant of Belgian nationality!  That's mixing business with pleasure!
