Notes for Samuel JOULE

Tenant of Pedley House, Rainow in 1851. In business with son John (silk & cotton) at Millbrook Mill, Rainow. [14],[168]

* Mill Lane, Rainow is actually off the end of Ingersley Road, Bollington, just beside the Poachers Inn. Hillside Farm in Mill Lane is adjacent to the stream that comes from Lima Clough. On an old map (supplied by Tom Swailes), I saw the last bit of the stream is called Joules Brook.

I am confident the Joules Brook got its name from the family, not the brewery, as it was so called 100 years before the brewery connection.

A confusion is that at one time the Joules brewery, based in Stone, Staffordshire, owned the Poachers Inn, then called The Masonic Arms and established in 1933. The conveyance to Joules (from Ind Coope) was dated 1944 and did not include the then separate but attached property at the corner of Mill Lane. Joules bought this too in 1952, presumably to extend the inn. [168]
