Notes for Samuel UNWIN

There were two prominent UNWIN families in Bollington, and this was a member of the Catholic family.

In the early 1840s, Samuel was a cotton spinner and would probably have worked at one of the main cotton mills in Bollington - Clarence, Higher, Lower, Rainow, Ingersley, Waterhouse or Lowerhouse.

By 1848, Samuel was a shopkeeper in Bollington dealing in groceries and sundries and described as a draper and tea dealer.

In the 1851 census the family are recorded as living at 14 Water Street.

By 1864, he owned a shop in Water Street, Bollington called \\\'Samuel Unwin & Son\\\'. The son was young Samuel aged 19 years old.
