In loving memory of BARRY SCOTSON Died 9th October 2009 They say there is a reason, they say that time will heal, but neither time nor reason, will change the way we feel. We cannot bring the old days back, when we were all together, but memories keep you close to us, and memories last forever. Close in our hearts you will always stay, loved and remembered every day. Love and miss you always, Bernie, Anthony, Lorraine and Michael

66 Byrom Hall, the former home of John Byrom is situated in Slag Lane,Low ton, quite near to the western shore of the Pennington Flash, nowa pop ular boating lake near Leigh, Lancashire. Ernest Beswick Scotsonwas th e tenant farmer here from the early 1900s until the mid-1930s.
The large hall accommodated their large family of eleven children.Erne st Beswick has often been blamed for his own personal problems,and for l osing the property through reckless gambling and excessivedrinking, ha ving to be baled out by the savings of his wife’sinheritance from Trav eller’s Rest. On one occasion he went to theIsle of Man for a night wi thout letting anyone know, and was caughtby the police at Liverpool do cks and fined the next day for leavinghis horse and cart unattended ov ernight. However, often forgotten wasthe misfortune that Ernest Beswic k faced, that included irrigationproblems, and farm land around Leigh t hat was very difficult tocultivate, really only being suitable as past ure land. His livestockwas also infected by foot and mouth disease, an d the army tookpossesion of his horses for use in the 1st World War. T he house wasreputed to be haunted, but Ernest Beswick claimed to have s hot itslegs off!

68 Career History
Position right half. Height 5ft 11in , weight 12 stone
April 1939 Signed to Sunderland from Ouston Jnrs, App 61 Goals 1
Dec 1950 Signed to Grimsby Town, App 164 Goals 4

Sunderland Daily Echo and Shipping Gasette, 4 April 1939
Under the Searchlight - by Argus
Manager Billy Murray made his first signing for Sunderland last night, and in my opinion he signed a centre half who is just as promising now as Lockie was when he first signed.
He is Reginald Scotson, the the player whom I favourably commented upon after last Wednesday's Northern Mid-Week League game at Roker Park. The Ouston player is beautifully built for the job, standing about 5ft 11in and weighing about 12 stone.
He is in his 19th year - and that is not a "football age." He played for Durham County boys and Gateshead boys in the 1933-34 season and in the Schools' International trial at Salford that year, but he was then an inside wing forward. Scotson will continue his apprenticeship as a motor engineer at Gateshead. Portsmouth, I am told are disappointed they have not got him.

Scotson, who was a member of the police force before rejoining the colours in August last year, was married to Wednesday (4 Aug 1915), and this gave his comrades an opportunity of showing the esteem in which he is held by them.

95 In "The History of Heapey Church" by Rev. D. S. Rennard (1915), there is mention of a Trust Deed 'conveying the right of Nomination and Presentation to Heapey Chapel and all its rights and privileges to the Vicar of Leyland for ever' and dated 20 November 1729. Among the several witnesses to this document is a John Scotson, yeoman, of Heapey. This is most likely to be the same John Scotson who was buried in 1732. It is not likely to have been the son John, because witnesses to documents of this kind are usually inhabitants of long standing in the community, and John's son would have been too young, having married only a month previously. SCOTSON John (I157)
