A Vision of Britain through Time

Knutton, Staffordshire

'In 1870-72 - John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England & Wales described Knutton like this...

KNUTTON, a village and a township in Wolstanton parish, Stafford.  The village stands 1 mile NW of Newcastle-under-Lyme: and is a scattered rapidly-increasing place.  The township includes also the great part of Silverdale village, and a tract, called KNUTTON-HEATH, which abounds with ironstone, and lately was a common...  in mines, and 4,333 in iron-workers.  Pop in 1851, 1,918 in 1861 4,464.  Houses, 935.  The increase of pop. arose mainly from the establishment of new ironworks.  Coal is extensively mined.  The Newcastle race-course is on the skirts of KNUTTON-HEATH.  There are a schoolroom licensed for the Church of England service under Silverdale, a Primitive Methodist chapel, and a United Free Methodist chapel; and the last was built in 1863.  etc etc.

Looking at Freebmd:

Bedminster, in 1889 the part of the parish of Bedminster in Bristol County Borough became part of Somerset.

Apart from Susannah in 1853 - just the marriage of a George SINGLETON - June 1861 and the birth of Wilson James SINGLETON in 1861 (Bedminster District).

Seems a family occupation: assume it all to do with the Wool trade.
