He died circa 1956 as the result of a hit and run traffic accident onP ensby Road, Thingwall late one evening when walking home from thepub. T he driver was never found but thankfully a family friend wasfirst on t he scene and recognised him and called the emergencyservices, but he d ied in hospital shortly afterwards. When he livedin Leigh he used to g o to help in a pub in Twist Lane at night, haddone for years even when G randma was alived apparently, the licenseewas an Alice Isherwood and h is cousin. He was pretty pie-eyed andnoisy on many an evening. The bit o f scandal was that he attemptedsuicide by putting his head in the gas o ven after discovering that hehad a dose of ´´clap" but there was not s ufficient money in the meterand thankfully he of course recovered.

104 John Scotson Jones
Bolton Journal and Guardian 2 July 1915
Heroic Deane Soldier

The Rev. Arthur Lamb, of Deane, writes:- Private John S. Jones
, R.M.L.I., late of Windy Hough, Deane Avenue, was killed in action at the Dardanelles on June 7th. He was a bright, genial young fellow, of a frank and winsome disposition. In enlisting at the beginning of the war he was actuated by a high sense of duty. His bright Christian character made him a favourite with all who knew him. He was actively associated with the Deane Congregational Church and Sunday School, being a teacher in the Primary Department. He will be greatly missed and deeply lamented, but his influence and memory will ever be an inspiration to those who knew him. There was in him much of the “stuff of which heroes are made.” He was employed at Messrs. R. Entwistle and Co., Lincoln Mills Warehouse.

Abram Ackers sank his first pit shaft on his Bickershaw estate roundab out 1835, but, it was some years before hits became his main sourceof w ealth. In the baptism registers of All Saints, Hindley, in the1830s he i s listed as Husbandman, and in the Census returns of 1841as a glass ma nufacturer. Apparently the glassworks only operated forabout ten years ( "History of Newton in Makerfield" by John Lane.

Bickershaw Hall
This house was formerly three-storied and brick-built, the windowsbein g divided into compartments by brick mullions coated withplaster, fron ting on all sides, and surrounded by a moat, crossed bya drawbridge at a b rick gate-house. In the 1830's Abraham Ackersmodernised the house, pul led off the roof, reduced the upper storeyin height, and demolished th e old gate house. The outer walls of thehouse remain on the old founda tions. The estate was originallypurchased by Mrs Frances Duckenfield o n 25 Dec. 1671 and remained inDuckenfield ownership untils 27 Feb 1760 , when Richard Claytonpurchased it including the manor, manor-house, 9 0 acres of landconsisting of 7 messuages, 5 barns, 6 shippons, 3 garde ns, 6orchards, 70 acres, 40 acres meadow, 55 acres pasture. Richard Clayton resold Bickershaw Hall to Edward Ackers of Newton, surgeon andap othecary for £3,500 on 28 April 1790. The sale comprised theLarrish Le ach Meadow, Bolton House Medow, Lawrence Field, Black Hey,Long Meadow, L awrence Field, Black Hey, Long Meadow, Horse Hey,Further Cow Hey, Bick ershaw Hey, Bickershaw Meadow, 5 Little MossMeadows, Ash Grove, Great M oss Meadow, nearer Cow hey, Gorses andOrchard Field, Gardener Meadow, 2 o rchards now in one, Bottoms,Knowe, 5 acre, Green Field, Long Hey, Broa d Hey, marled meadow,Hindley Hey, Barn Hey, and Hindley Meadow, contai ning 90 acres of 8yards to the rod. Bolton House was purchased by Edwa rd Ackers from aMr Stirrop on 30 August 1783.
Edward Ackers who died 27 January 1810 by his will gave his real estate upon trust to accumulate the income for 21 years for the benefito f Edward Ackers, son of his cousin, John Ackers, for life and to hisma le descendants, then to the male heir of his cousin, John Ackers.of th e Holt, near Prescott.
Edward Ackers, son of John, died intestate in Dec 1818, unmarried, consequently Abraham Ackers, also son of John, came to the property byr ight of inheritance, and the trustees appointed by his will are thepre sent owners.

111 Leigh Chronicle, 15 July 1910:

DEATH OF A LOWTON WORTHY.

The death of Mr James Scotson, farmer, of Little Byrom Farm, Lowton, which took place on Friday, removes a familiar figure from Lowton circles. About two years ago he lost his wife, and some time later had a stroke of paralysis. He was, however, able to get about but about a fortnight ago he had another stroke and this proved fatal. The deceased, who was 68 years old and leaves two sons and a daughter, was a church warden at Lowton Parish Church for several years; he was also a member of the Parish Council when it first came into being, and occupied the position up to his seizure. He was also up to quite recently a trustee of the Lowton charities. A strong Churchman and Conservative, he worked hard for any cause that he took up. His sturdy independent views on public matters inspired respect. He was a typical John Bull type of man. The funeral took place at Abram Parish Church on Monday afternoon. There were present Mr. Abraham Scotson and Mr. Ernest Scotson (sons), the former being a vetinary surgeon at Cruden Bay, Scotland, Mr. and Mrs. Johnson (son-in-law and daughter), Miss J. Hatch (grand-daughter), Mr P. Scotson (brother), Mrs. Haydock, Mrs Howarth, and Mrs. J. W. Cowburn(sisters), Messrs . J. W Cowburn, Haydock, and Howarth (brothers in law), Mr. Jeans, solicitor, of Warrington; Mr. James Prescott, organist, Lowton Parish Church; the Rev. Webster Hall, rector of Lowton; Dr. Dobb, of Golborne (medical attendant); Messrs. Mort, Birchall, John Bromilow (Bamfurlong). J. Bromilow (Hindley), C. E. Hindley, ex-Mayor of Eccles, and Holden (Westhoughton). The Rev. F.B. Twemlow, vicar of Abram, read the funeral service.

125 Montagu and Lilian Alliston were singers with the Quinlan Opera Company. Thomas Quinland set up his own company to provide the provinces and dominions the chance of hearing grand opera on the same scale as Covent Garden. The company was set up in Liverpool in 1911, and Quinlan would supervise everything, casting the operas himself. The company rehearsed in London for 5 months before touring the provinces, opening in Liverpool, visiting Ireland then setting off for Australia, but performing first in South Africa en route.

Montagu and Lilian must have been regulars in the company and are recorded as travelling to New York and Toronto in 1918, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1923, New York in 1932-33.

"A BROKEN HEARTED WIFE"
At the West Hartlepool police court to-day, Ernest Scotson, a joiner, having persistently ill-treated his wife Mary Scotson, who applied for a separation order - Mr W Harrison defended. - complainant said she was married to the defendant on November 18th, 1901, at St Joseph's Church. there were two children, both girls, now aged ten and five. on September 4th and 5th her husband threatened to take her life, called her an Irish swine, and locked her out all night with two children. on another occasion he spat on the bacon which had been brought in and said that she would get none of it. The witness was reading from a paper on which she had prepared her evidence, and the magistrates clerk (Mr smith) asked when she wrote it. - Complainant: I could write a book on my life since I seen Mr Scotson. - cross-examined by Mr Harrison, complainant said that he had hit her several times. she denied running him out of the house with the poker, whilst her mother chased him with the tongs. It was all lies to say that it was her habit to come in at 1 o'clock in the morning. Her husband had always been calling her a drunkard and a woman of low character, and she had come there to get justice. She admitted that her husband had had to get his own meals and put the children to bed on two occasions. She was a broken-hearted wife and always had been. she had no solicitor to stick up for her rights. Margaret Duggan, mother of the complainant, also gave evidence. she had, she said, seen the defendant kick his wife on the legs. Mr Harrison contended there was no case for him to answer, but if the bench considered the parties would be better separated, he submitted that a small order would be sufficient. If the woman promised to mend her ways his client would have her back. The husband had had much of the housework to do, and altogether had had a dog's life. The bench made a separation order, the wife to have custody of the children, and maintenance of 10s a week.

132 Noted as being a government advisor to immigrants, presumably in Canada where he is said to have emigrated. However, there no ships list has so far been seen to verify this.

He was also a judge at a royal agricultural show.

135 Perhaps a younger son of the Furness Abbey tenant at Lancaster was offered a vacant tenancy (caused by the Black Death in 1348-9?) on their Furness Felss estate, so bringing the first Scotson to A.P. Or - we are told that members of the Rawlinson family of Greenhead, Colton who built Colton church c.1475, fought at Agincourt on 24 October 1415; could it be that a friendship developed between comrades-in-arms during that campaign brought the first Scotson to Colton? Among the fifty archers assigned by the King to send to France, 3 Hen V, with the company of Robert Laurence of Ashton, Nr Lancaster, Esq, was one Thomas Scotson (Farrer Mss, Manche ster Central ster Central Reference Library Archives L1/50/11, p.192.) SCOTSON Thomas (I3)

138 Samuel is supposed to have arrived in Victoria by way of South Africa, but his arrival records has not been found, perhaps he came overland from South Australia or Tasmania. A diary of Samuel Scotson for 1853, owned by Lynn Ross, wrote for 29 Jan 1853 "arrived in Australia". Samuel's occupations were at different times a mining agent and then an insurance agent. He was supposedly to have shod his horse with gold horse shoes at some stage.

Samuel Scotson (1830-1903) and his wife Martha Wilson Dunlop (1844-1919), who settled in the Fryer’s Creek/Yapeen area near Castlemaine. Samuel Scotson, from Lancashire, England, arrived [via South Africa] on the “Sarah Bell” in 1853 (a ship full of gold seekers) and was a well known gold miner in the area, and had Scotson’s Reef at Mopoke Gully for many years.

The late 16 century wills left by John Scotson of Abbott Park in 1584 and another John Scotson of Abbott Park in 1589, provide some detail of small scale husbandmen, holding their land by tenant-right from the Crown, descendants of the tenants of Furness Abbey and although they themselves must be the ancestors of the later Scotsons of Abbott Park, alas, documentary proof is wanting.

Husbandmen were able to provide a subsistence living for a family but very few indeed became rich by tilling the soil and stock caring. One way of utilising any 'overpush' which they might eke out from their labours in the fields, however, was to provide a banking service to neighbours in need of ready cash, and lend it out at interest from them to pay off debts and/or buy new stock.

What the intentory, taken on 3 August 1584, of the goods and chattels of John Scotson of Abbot Park, does reveal is a real clue (not fully appreciated for some time) to the mysterys as to how his descendant Thomas Scotson c.1628-1691 became a comparitively wealthy man, not a 'millionaire' but still rich enough to send his three sons to school (almost certainly Hawkshead Grammar School) and the young one, on to university.
