Hi Reiver, Peter and Heather

In said book by Frank Bamford there is only a snippet of information about Harefield House.  I quote

.... A narrow lane still runs from the rear of the site down to Woodville Road.  This appears to be one of the legacies of Sigismund Schloss, who bought more land during the 1860s so that his garden became quite extensive.  There was another man called Reuben Levi, a manufacturing clothier, who in 1861 lived with his wife, four children and three servants just round the corner from Beechthorpe in Bowdon Road at a house called Beech Bank, who was also somewhat acquisitive as far as land was concerend.  Between then, Schloss and Levi owned most of the land behind the first three houses on St. Margaret's Road right down to Woodville Road.  In an 1878 directory it is recorded that one Daniel Schloss, possibly a son of Sigismund, lived at Harefield Housewhich seems actually to have been sited on Woodville Road and may well have been built earlier, even  by 1850.  In the 1881 Census he is described as a South  American merchant with four children and five servants .....

I have a map with Harefield House on it. If you would like to see a copy Reiver please PM me with your email address.

Seamon's Moss School was built in 1867 founded by Thomas Walton gent.

Kind regards
Su

Hi
   Thomas Walton who died 06/02/1757 and is referred to as the salt master was a distant relative of mine I'd be grateful if anyone has any information on him.
Thanks
Phil

Hi Phil
I have no family connection with Thomas Walton but if you want to know a little bit more about him I may be able to help.  Are you familiar with the locality round about Dunham at all?

Hi Reiver
             I have visited Warburton old church a couple of times trying to locate the grave of my Gt Grandmother Mary All Walton and am aware of the Dunham Massey Estate.
Regards
Phil

I do know that Thomas Walton lived at what is now Manor House Farm in (Dunham) Woodhouses.
This is in the Parish of Bowdon.   You may find family events in that parish.   May I suggest you look at the website for Bowdon Church  www.bowdonchurch.org   Go to Enter Full Website, click on Our Church.   At the bottom is a section Archives and Memorials which may prove of interest.

Hi Reiver
            Thanks for the link to St Mary's, Bowdon unfortunately I can only see the memorial to Roger Grey. I have tried using different browsers but cannot see anything else. If I am missing something I'd be grateful if you could send me the link.
Thanks
Phil

Hi Reiver
            I spoken to Derek at St Mary's and other than confirm date of Thomas's funeral he has no other information. He said there was no memorial for him either within or outside the church. His will states his wife was called Mary and a pre deceased daughter called Mary (married Pickering?) and brother George. I can't find any birth or marriage records for him in the area. Did he originate from another county? Was he self made or inherited his wealth? I am intrigued.
