    • 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.
