Notes for William TURNER

Served as Member of Parliament for Blackburn 1832-1841. High Sheriff for Cheshire.

Known as William of Mill Hill (Livesey, Blackburn). Owned a calico printing mill. Bought Shrigley Hall from Edward Downes and re-developed it to become the building we see today.

He gave land for the building of St John’s Church, Bollington, (built 1834) and the original St. Gregory's chapel in Chapel Street, Bollington. The Turner's Arms Inn was built on his land and named in his honour, and Turner Street similarly. [105]
