Notes for Samuel UNWIN

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

Began by assisting his father. About 1880, having married Elizabeth Ingham, he moved the family and business from Water Street to bigger premises at Manchester House, Palmerston Street. It is possible that he inherited this building and the business from his father-in-law John Ingham in 1891. He would have taken over the business when father-in-law retired to Brock Street in Macclesfield. We have a collection of legal papers relating to the settlement of John Ingham′s estate in 1891 and, without having understood it all, it looks as though Elizabeth Unwin née Ingham inherited the business and property.
