1901 National Census for Netherthong : Part 1

The  1901 National Census  is the last one that was transcribed to micro-film and retained  in the Archives Section of Kirklees Public Library in Huddersfield. Under the 100 year rule, the information for the 1911 Census  is available on the Ancestry web-site.

This Census followed the standard pattern with the individual household information  being transcribed,  in cursive handwriting , onto the master forms. This meant that some of the capital letters were difficult to work out and I have had to resort to using ?? . The enumerator was also very liberal in his use of a black crayon which also on occasions obliterated key information. I have copied faithfully Christian names even though they didn’t seem right to me.

In previous censuses, the word ‘scholar ‘ was used to describe those children at school but it has not been used in this census.

The National Census for Netherthong for 1891

 

The specific  details  of each of  the National Census are only released after 100 years but statistical  information was normally given a few years after the census was completed. The Express gave the following figures in August 1923 for the 1921 census . The population was 1347 made up of 569 males and 778 females. As a comparison the population of Meltham was 5067, New Mill 4456, Honley 4701 and Thurstonland 2488.

I have covered the first two National Census for Netherthong for 1841 and 1861 in  separate chapters.The details for the census for the years 1861,1871,1881,1891, 1901 are available in the Archive Library at Huddersfield and I  decided initially  to extract relevant information for 1891. Each census lists the road/street, the names of all the occupants, their relationship to the head person, condition ( married, single, widowed ) age, profession and where born. I have simplified the information for ease of reading.The results of the census were all hand written and some names were difficult to decipher. I arrived at a total population for Netherthong of 958.

 The census results for Deanhouse/Dean Brook were listed under Honley but because Deanhouse plays an integral part in my interpretation of the history of the village, I have included those results in this chapter.

The Roebucks of Moor Lane – detailed Family Tree 1775 to date

 A great deal of research and effort has been  put into the following excellent family tree of the Roebuck family from 1775 up to the present.  Because it is very specialised, I have given it a chapter of its own and it is basically word-for-word, including the researcher’s comments, as it was supplied to me by Brenda Quarmby ( nee Roebuck ).

GREAT, GREAT, GREAT, GREAT GRANDAD

ROGER ROEBUCK            married                           ?

born about 1755? , he lived at Woodnook and was listed as a Clothier. Possible children:- Hannah (christened 21.6.1778) – John  (christened 27.2.1779) – Eli (christened 25.12.1782) – Lydia b.1786 ? Christened in Honley, West Yorkshire.( I am not sure about this person ).

 GREAT, GREAT, GREAT GRANDAD

JOHN ROEBUCK Snr.                      married                MARIA ( not known )

 b. 1779. died 2.7.1835 aged 55.                            b.1778. died 14.9.35 aged 57 

 Children:-  John – William b.1809 – Benjamin – Lydia b.1786 ? – Possibly Maria b.1793 – Others not known

 Netherthong Parish Church was completed in 13 March 1829. The children were possibly christened in Honley as they all lived at Wood Nook.

Moorgate, Netherthong was an area on the edge of the moors (hence the name) which included Great Ox Close, Oxley Lane ,Middle Brown Hill, Upper Brown Hill, Lower Ox Close, Moorgate Farm and  probably Sands Farm. John Roebuck and family were shown as living at Wood Nook (near Honley) in 1813. In 1831, he built dwellings at Great Ox Close and these dwellings were tenanted. (I believe this is Ox Lane Farm & the tenants were weavers) He was, we were told, a very wealthy man. John and Maria were buried in Netherthong churchyard. (This grave has a very prominent position at the head of the Church …Large stone box type by vestry door area). William his son married Ann the daughter of Joseph Hirst… (Ann has also been named Oldham ? see belowThis could be where the name of Joseph Hirst was first originated into the Roebuck family. There could also be a connection with a George Hirst (Holmfirth area) who owned Digley Mill in the 1830’s. Bank End Mill next door was tenanted by John and William Roebuck also at this time? The Mill was badly damaged by the great flood in 1852. It is  believed that  John Roebuck handed down his assets to his son William circa 1836?

Moorgate Farm was never owned or tenanted by Roebucks. It was the property of Dyson’s and  still was in 2012

 GREAT, GREAT GRANDAD

WILLIAM ROEBUCK                          married                      ANN OLDHAM HIRST

  born 21.4.1808,                                                                born

                                            Ann was born Upperthong

 Children:- John  – Emma – Ellen Ann – Maria – Mary – Sarah – Lydia – Joseph H – William E

 William was born at Wood Nook, near. Netherthong, which was later handed down to him from his father John. The Census taken 30.3.1851 shows the family living at Woodnook, 64 acres plus houses and servants. They mainly reared sheep in addition to the usual farm animals.

In 1881, Ann was 73 years old. She was a widow, still lived at Wood Nook, Honley,  farmed  60 acres and employed 4 men.  A marriage certificate was required to ascertain if Ann was HIRST or OLDHAM and who was her father… Joseph Hirst of Wilshaw or William Hirst (b.1785).There was also a George Hirst, Mill owner of Digley Mill. Details of her mother are unknown to date.  All the children were christened at Netherthong Church and William and  Ann were buried in Netherthong churchyard together with John and Maria Roebuck.

When William died he left Woodnook to Joseph and William E and their mother Ann was to live in the cottage. There is evidence that the farm was left to the eldest son John, which was the usual thing to do in those days. He in turn later rented it out to his brothers, Joseph and William Edward (there is an original document showing a rental agreement between these three Roebucks dated  February 1st 1887)  at £69 a year with rent days being May 1st and November 1st.

 John born 21.4.1831 and died Jan 1889?   Farmer’s son born in Netherthong. John was married to Martha Ann born 2.4.1841 and died 11.7.1923 (She was baptized on September 2 1877) and  in 1871 they were shown as Grocers in Thongsbridge. In 1881 they lived at Ox Lane as farmers with children, Annie born c.1874 (Dressmaker) – Edith born c. 1874 (Dressmaker’s assistant) – William born c.1868 (Joiner) – John Herbert born 9.10.1884 (In 1911 he was listed as being a farm manager at Moor Lane, Netherthong) – Fred born 7.8.1878 and died 1.8.1880 – Mary Emma born April 1871 died 31.3.1874, aged 2 yr 11 months – John Charles died at the age of 6 ½ months. All the children were born in Netherthong and in1891 they lived at Ox Lane but by 1901 they had moved to Wood Nook. The 1861 Census shows that Martha Ann was the daughter of Grace and David Roebuck. Grace was born c.1802 and came from Almondbury. David Roebuck was a Manufacturer. Martha had a sister Mary Mellor born c.1844. John possibly died in 1901. Mary Mellor was possibly married in September 1867. As mentioned earlier,  this John, being the eldest son, inherited Wood Nook on the death of his father and on the 1st February 1887 he rented the farm out to his brothers Joseph Hirst and William Edward for £69 yearly rent.

 William Roebuck born 1868 – died 1938 (Son of John Roebuck & Martha Ann above), emigrated to New Zealand and he married Lucy Holmes born1873 – died1938. (They had no children which we know of).  William lived at Wood Nook in 1908 and married Lucy on 1.9.1908 at the United Methodist Church, Moldgreen,Huddersfield. Lucy lived at Brook Street, Moldgreen and her father,  Charles Holmes,  was a corn miller. She worked as a confectioners assistant. Lucy arrived in New Zealand 19.2.1910 and they were farmers there alongside his cousin William Ramsden Roberts.  William and Lucy died within four months of each other in 1938 and were buried  in the Old Hamilton East Cemetery.

Ellen Ann  born 12.8.1834 – died 1903    Farmer’s daughter  born in Netherthong. Possible marriage September 1865 or June 1866 . We think she was christened on 31.8.1834 and she married Richard Roberts born 1829 – died1908 of  Farnley Tyas. They had children Richard Henry,  Sarah, John Richard born 1901 – died1979,  Stanley born1905 – died 1972   and  William Ramsden born 1869 – died 1938 , who married Eleanor Lister born1871 – died1940 and  they had children Vera 1899-1967, Frank 1902-1980 and Norman 1911-1999. Frank married Winifred Hodge born 1916 – died 2006 and they had a child, John Roberts born 1943 in Tauranga New Zealand where he still lives with his wife and family.

 William Ramsden’s  family originally  moved to New Zealand in 1910 on the recommendation of their friends, the Roebucks, who were already there. They made this move after the death of their father Richard Roberts in 1908.

Their sister Sarah had already settled in the USA.( My cousin reckons they knew Roebucks in England who had members already settled in New Zealand and may have provided the incentive).

William Ramsden, Richard Henry (and his wife and 3 children) arrived in NZ on the ‘Arawa’ in June 1910.

William’s wife and their 5 children emigrated 6 months later on the ‘Tainui’ arriving in November 1910. Her daughter, two year old Gertrude, died  when the ship docked at Hobart, Tasmania. William’s wife, Eleanor, was 7 months pregnant at the time so it must have been some trip.

My cousin who lives near Hamilton, New Zealand, found many Roebuck names in her local phone book.

  Mary born 5.1.1838 – died10.9.1875 .  She was a  farmer’s daughter  born in Moorgate, Honley. She married Henry Senior 22.8.1870 in Netherthong and they had three children.

Mary Ann  born Nov 1875 – died  ? she married Harold Thomas Raper on 4.6.1903 and her mother, Mary, most probably died at the time of her birth in 1875.

Lydia born 1842                      born in Honley. Possible marriage March 1865 .

 William Edward born 6th March 1847 – died 10th February 1895 at the age 49 of a heart attack. Census says he was born in Honley. After his brother Joseph (the Vet) died, he continued with Rachel taking care of the farm at Wood Nook – he had an affair with Rachel and  fathered a son called Harry in 1893 (the mother being Rachel Roebuck (nee Spencer Batty)). Harry married Emma (nee) Beaumont from Hepworth. They lived in Netherthong opposite the Clothiers Arms .William Edward was a farmer and  he did not marry but always lived with Joseph H and  Rachel. William was  buried with his brother Joseph Hirst/Rachel/Arthur in Netherthong graveyard (front of Church-left).

 Joseph H. born 29.4.1844 – died 5.11.1891.

GREAT GRANDAD

JOSEPH HIRST ROEBUCK                    married to               RACHEL SPENCER                                                                                                              BATTY                                  

29 April 1844 – 5th Nov 1891             18.6.1873             b.23.8.1851 – died 17th Dec 1931

Age 47                                                                                 Aged 80

Born in Honley (I think Moorgate Farm)                          Born Hunshelf/Penistone 

Children:- Hirst,  Emma, Arthur,  Benjamin , Mary Ann (Polly) ,Lily, Ada, Lydia, Alice,  Harry ( Harry was born in 1893 with Joseph’s brother, William, being the father ).

Joseph Hirst was baptized at All Saints Church, Netherthong June 18th 1844 (could be May)

The marriage certificate shows that Rachel was a Batty.(but Charlesworth memoirs show her name as Spencer ??). Rachel’s father was Benjamin Batty, a farmer, and the family were from Hunshelf near Penistone . She was born with a squint and died from a stroke . She was married to Joseph Hirst on 18th June 1873 at the Parish Church, Penistone and they lived at Wood Nook farm and  Rachel had ten children. (See note for last one Harry’s father who was William Ed.)

Joseph was a Veterinary Surgeon and lived at Woodnook. When Joseph H died of a heart attack he left Woodnook to his brother William Edward in 1891. Sometime after William Edward died,  Rachel and  her children Mary A,  Lily,  Ada, Alice ,  Harry lived at 78 Alder Street. Huddersfield .St.Andrews ? ( I estimate around 18961901. See 31.3.1901 Census.). Rachel probably moved into the Queens Head Inn around 1901 – 1905 and  then to Cliffe View her newly built house on Thong Lane, Netherthong. Charlesworth memoirs state that BOTH farms were sold (but we only know of Wood Nook) and the spoils were divided between the children. Joseph lived a very busy life as a vet and  seemed happy with the outdoor life.

 ARTHUR was born in Honley on 10th Dec 1876  and died 12th July 1895  He lived at Wood Nook and was buried with his mother and father in Netherthong church yard  at the age of 19. (Louie’s diaries show the death at six weeks old of another Arthur (cot death) -who is the other Arthur ?)

 BENJAMIN    Born 18.11.1878 , died 12.08.1916. Although Benjamin’s name is on the gravestone with his sisters Lily and  Alice in Netherthong Churchyard, he is also listed on the memorial at Villers – Bretonneux Memorial at the Somme in  France where he was allegedly buried with other soldiers.

:Another death was that of Benjamin Roebuck, who was a Private (5178), 16th Battalion, Australian Imperial Force. Born at Netherthong, the son of Joseph Hirst Roebuck and Rachel Roebuck, of Cliff View, Netherthong, Holmfirth, he was educated at Saint Mary’s Church School, Wilshaw. While living at Netherthong he became a teamer, driving a horse drawn wagon for Mr. John Batley; he was a member of the Working Men’s Club and attended All Saint’s Church. He emigrated to Australia around 1910, and soon acquired a farm and an orchard at Harvey, in a farming area in the South Western part of Western Australia. He volunteered at Blackboy Hill, near Harvey, on January 19th 1916, listing his mother, Rachel, as his next of kin, and sailed from Freemantle with reinforcements for the 16th Battalion on March 31st 1916, onboard HMAT A9 Shropshire, stopping at Egypt on the way to the Western Front. He was killed in action on Saturday August 12th 1916, shortly after he had arrived in France. His family received the news of his death on September 2nd; he was thirty-seven years old. There is no known  grave. The 16th Battalion spent the week before his death in attacks in the area around Circular Trench, north of Pozieres, France, also beating off a German counterattack from Mouquet Farm. On the 12th the German artillery bombarded the left of the line, and at 1:30 p.m. the Battalion was relieved, though the Germans shelled them as they moved to the rear. Benjamin Roebuck was either one of the thirty-nine men who were known to have been killed, or one of the nineteen reported missing believed killed in action with the 16th Battalion that day. Many more men were wounded. A letter written shortly before his death arrived in Holmfirth saying he was glad to get away from Egypt, which was a miserable place to live, and that he hoped to visit them at Netherthong before he returned to Australia.

 ALICE  was born on 4.8.1889 and died 18.3.1950 aged 60. She lived at Wood Nook and after an accident, whilst riding her bicycle in Netherthong, her hat pin pierced her brain leaving her brain damaged. Alice was admitted to Storthes Hall Hospital  on 8th January 1913 aged 24 where she remained there until she died aged 60. She was buried in Netherthong church yard with sister Lily and brother Benjamin.

 EMMA   Born 17.1.1875 – died 11th Nov 1945. She was born in Honley and lived at Wood Nook and she had a leg amputated when she was 60 years old.. She married Fred Charlesworth in 1895 .

MARY ANN (known as Polly ).   Born in Honley 29.10.1880 – died 13th Nov . She lived at Woodnook  and married Arthur Chambers in 1907. He died fighting in France on 5.4.19 They had a daughter Elsie 23.6.1911 – 21.3.1934 who died from Diptheria. She was a Worsted and Woollen weaver.

 ADA   Born 10.7.1885. (This lady was quite well heeled ) .She owned properties in and  around Huddersfield and also owned the two front fields at Ox Lane Farm for which a yearly rent was paid. These fields were purchased by Mother and Derek after Dad’s death (JOHN Roebuck) in 1978. She had nieces Lilian and Eveline.

 LYDIA    Born  23.5.1887 and she had children:- Hilda,  Evelyn, Annie and Lilian. Their surname was Woods. She became a nurse at the Huddersfield Royal Infirmary.

 HARRY     Born  22.10.1893. Fathered by William E ( brother of Joseph who had died in 1891.) Harry married Emma Beaumont from Hepworth and they had a son Phillip born18.1.1927 and  they lived in Netherthong. He served in the RAF in 1914 and was buried in Netherthong church yard.

 They all lived at Wood Nook Farm, Honley in 1881 and Woodnook was sold around 1896/7?  Rachel, now a widow and on her own since William died in 1895, was shown as living at 74 Alder Street, Huddersfield as at 31.3.1901. Wood Nook was now shown to be occupied by Martha Ann Roebuck (widow of John ) plus children, she being completely self-sufficient. Somewhere between 1895 – 1905,  Rachel lived in Alder Street, Huddersfield and later bought the Queens Head Pub in Netherthong. (Her life at this point seemed to revolve around her children, Mary Ann (Polly) & Emma). She later had a house built at the top of Thong Lane in Netherthong and named it “Cliffe View”. She moved there in 1905 where she lived until her death. The Queens Head Pub was closed in 1938 See chapter on pubs and inns.  Grandma Rachel was buried with her family at the front area of Netherthong churchyard.

 (19th December 1896: A Mortgage of £500 was taken out from Lloyds Bank, Holmfirth, The document was amongst Dad’s papers.  Too early for him….must have been his Dad HIRST Roebuck. I think this is the purchase of Ox Lane Farm by Hirst Roebuck. Here he worked and  raised his family. We are told that he died owing lots of money).

Born at Wood Nook/Honley                                          ANN born Deanhouse           

 Children: Herbert,  John, Arthur,  Emily,  Amy,  Joe,  Lydia , Mary Emma  and Marion

 They were married at Netherthong Parish Church on the 16th October 1895 in the presence of Joseph Hirst Roebuck (yeoman) and Ben Senior (Dyer). (No known photos.) Grandad Hirst was well known for his long red beard which later turned white and although he was a hard worker, I am told he was also a heavy drinker.  His mother, Rachel Roebuck ,owned and ran the Queens Head Pub in Netherthong where he was to be found frequently. He was always borrowing money from his mother, which was lent on IOU’s but never paid back. They lived at Wood Nook Farm and he later bought Ox Lane Farm,  Moor Lane, Netherthong, Holmfirth.and had nine children. Hirst Roebuck died in Deanhouse Hospital aged 73 and was buried December 18th 1946.  Grandma Hannah Ann was buried on  December 26th 1934 aged 63.They were buried in Netherthong Parish Church graveyard (bottom end right side No: M74, which is approximately half way down and  five rows in from the path .(Behind Mam/Dad’s plot). Hannah Ann was taken ill at the funeral of baby Jean Howells (her granddaughter, with a stroke and later died from heart related symptoms. (This appears to be the only Roebuck grave NOT marked with a headstone !!!!)

Hirst was apparently the black sheep of the family. He bought Ox Lane Farm with his legacy money and  help from his mother and Uncle William. He had at one time 12 men working for him on the farm and, come Friday evening, they would all go to the pub (probably the Queens Head) for a drink and  he wouldn’t pay out their wages until going home time from the pub. This was so they took their wages home to the family and didn’t spend it on drink. Although he was a great drinker himself he always provided for his family first. There would be a gathering of the family on Saturday nights in Victoria Street, Holmfirth, where HIRST would always buy a large joint of meat from the butchers there ( we know it now as Howarths green grocers) to take home for Sunday dinner. He was also involved greatly in carting ganister from the quarry to build stables in Meltham (this is where the White Swan pub is). (Always borrowing money from his Mother as we know BUT it seems to me that he also had many good qualities and was very much a family man at heart).

Hirst and Hannah Ann used to make their own butter, a tradition which had been handed down many generations. ( I remember helping my Dad, John, to make butter and little pats were made for the children). When Hannah Ann died, her daughter Marion took over the care of the family and granddaughter Hannah would scrub the kitchen floor every Friday with a reward of 6d. (sixpence). Uncle Arthur said that Grandad Hirst spent all his money (after feeding his family) in one of the pubs in Meltham, either The Swan or the Waggon & Horses. He would buy everyone in the pub drinks until there was no money left, returning the next week to do the same thing.

 (As a child, I remember the Roebuck family used to gather at Ox Lane for Christmas Day tea, a tradition which continued well into my later childhood. All the Aunties and Uncles would sit round the large round oak table which usually needed two sittings, and we children got what was left over.)

 HIRST Roebuck bought Ox Lane Farm about1895/6 (I am not sure of this date/year ), after his father Joseph H died. He used his own money plus some from his Uncle William E and help from his Mother, Rachel. He left Ox Lane Farm and all his debts to his son JOHN Roebuck.

Dad – John Roebuck purchased the adjacent land and  buildings known as Brownhill Farm in 1958.Keith Roebuck owns and lives there. (The Deeds for Ox Lane Farm were transferred to Dad in 1971 and should be held at the Solicitors).

All the usual traditions were carried on at Ox Lane Farm, the making of butter and Dad would also make a little pat for me ,the delivery of milk with the horse and cart where people would bring out their jugs,  the Christmas Day tea when all the Roebuck family would gather. Dad worked hard, as did Mam, but Dad, like his father before him, was quite a heavy drinker at weekends. Sometimes we didn’t see him from Friday night until Sunday night and we had to get Jim Horncastle to come to milk the cows. On the surface Dad was a very hard man, but I believe he was quite soft inside somewhere. His favourite song was “Danny Boy” and his favourite flowers were carnations.
