William Cecil Price, born in 1903 in Rotherham, is my first cousin, twice removed and son of Amelia Pinder and Alfred Thomas Price. William’s brother, Ernest Alfred, died on the first day of the Battle of the Somme.

In 1927, William married Florence Jane Liversidge and below are a couple of newspaper articles published shortly after their marriage.

THE ADVERTISER, SATURDAY, JUNE 11, 1927.

The wedding took place at St. Bede’s Roman Catholic Church, Station road, Masbro’, on Whit-Monday, of Miss Florence Liversidge, of 13, Garden street, Rotherham, and Mr. William Cecil Price, third son of the late Mr. and Mrs. A. T. Price, of “Gavenny,” Kimberworth. The Rev. Father Horrax, assisted by the Rev. Father Gosse, conducted the service, which was given with full Nuptial Mass.

Miss Gibson presided at the organ, and played the Bridal March from “Lohengrin” (Wagner).

The bride, who was given away by her brother-in-law, Mr. F. Bedford, wore a dress of cream georgette, embroidered with tiny seed pearls. She was attended by three bridesmaids, Miss Grace Price (sister of the bridegroom), Mrs. Amy Hopkinson (sister of the bride), and Miss Ada Bedford (niece of the bride), who were prettily attired in dresses of crepe-de-chene with figured insertions. The bride’s bouquet consisted of June roses and white heather. The bridesmaids had bouquets of pink carnations, except the youngest, who carried a French basket containing white carnations.

The best man was Mr. William Stenton (cousin of the bridegroom), of Woodseats, Sheffield.

A reception was held after the ceremony.

Matthew Henry Pinder

Matthew Pinder

Matthew Henry Pinder is my great grandfather and son of Francis Pinder and Hannah Berry.

Matthew was born in September 1869 in Waterworks House, at the junction of Frederick Street and Howard Street, Rotherham and lived in and around central Rotherham for all of his life; living on Frederick Street, Carlisle Street, Milton Road and Bethel Road.

In 1897, Matthew married Alice Cunnington in Bourne, Lincolnshire. Alice came from a deeply religious Methodist family. How Matthew and Alice came to meet is a puzzle, although Matthew’s family were also Methodists, so perhaps they somehow met through their respective Churches.

frederick-street-rotherham-copyright-colin-leonard-1965-1

Rotherham Waterworks

Matthew and Alice issued five children and they were called, John Francis (1899 to 1964), Edith Mary (1901 to 1952), Marjory (1907 to 1993), David Henry (1911 to 1968) and Philip Thomas (1919 to 1998). Edith Mary is my grandmother.

John (known as Jack) was a Company Secretary at Imperial Chemical Industries and lived at Home Farm, Fernhurst in Surrey. Jack married Christiana Bartholomew in 1922 and together issued one child called, Joan Mary. Jack, Christiana and Joan all died in fairly quick succession in the 1960s. Joan married Gordon Wright in 1946 and together issued three children. Gordon is/was in possession of a clock given to Matthew’s father, Francis, when he retired from Yates and Haywood in Rotherham.

Marjory obtained a Degree from Sheffield University in the 1920s and was a Teacher of French and Music at Shiremoor Modern School, Tyne and Wear. Marjory married George Alaister Turnbull in 1934 and together they issued two children. Marjory and her family resided in Morpeth, Northumberland.

David married Evelyn Wakefield in 1935 and they had no issue. David was a Waterworks Manager in Mundesley on Sea, Norfolk, which is where he and Evelyn lived. After David passed away in 1968, my grandfather, John Gilbert Mollekin, often visited Evelyn and semi-lived with her for a while (as friends).

howard-street-rotherham-04-05-14-1

Howard Street

Philip married Mary Isobel Campbell in 1940 and together they issued two children. After Philip’s father, Matthew, had passed away, Philip’s uncle (Francis Thomas Pinder) advised him that he should pursue a career in the Royal Air Force. Philip became a Warrant Officer, served in World War Two and latterly worked in Scotland’s secret radar nuclear bunker. Philip and his family lived in Crail, Fife. Philip was also the Secretary of Saint Andrews Golf Club, Fife.

Because my grandfather, John Gilbert Mollekin, was a Signalman on the railways, he and his family were able to travel for free and my father recalled many happy memories of visiting David and Philip. My father kept in touch with Marjory and Philip until their deaths and visited Philip in Scotland for the final time in 1996. Marjory and Philip helped my father with his genealogical research and helped to identify ancestors on photos.

Matthew, Jack, Edith & Alice

My father had been led to believe that Matthew was the Waterworks Manager for Rotherham. However, it transpired that it was actually Matthew’s grandfather, Luke Berry, that had occupied this role. Matthew did work in the Rotherham Waterworks Department though, setting off as a Stationary Engine Tender, then Engineer, then Inspector and finally the Corporation Superintendent for the Waterworks.

In 1901, just prior to my grandmother, Edith, being born, Matthew, Alice and Jack moved to 84 Bethel Road, Eastwood in Rotherham. This remained as the main Pinder residence until at least 1929, albeit for a brief period around 1910 when the family, for reasons not known to me, lived a few doors up at number 90.

Matthew died August 1922 in 84 Bethel Road from endocarditis and myocarditis. Basically, Matthew’s heart muscle had become inflamed, possibly due to infection that in turn caused a fatal infection of the inner lining of his heart.

SLAVE TO DUTY.

DEATH OF AN OLD CORPORATION SERVANT.

Bethel  Road, Rotherham (no. 84) - 24.06.07 (1)

84 Bethel Road

An old servant of the Rotherham Corporation, in the person of Mr. Matthew Henry Pinder, water superintendent, passed away at 84, Bethel road, Rotherham, on Monday, at the age of 53 years. The deceased gentlemen, who succumbed to heart trouble after an illness of six months’ duration, was noted for his devotion to duty. Conscientious in the service of the public, he had an amazing capacity for work, and the fact that his constant energies affected his health did not restrain him from endeavouring to give of his best. In fact, his colleagues in the water department affirm that his end was hastened by unrelenting toil. He was a remarkable example of faithful and conscientious service.

Masbrough Cemetery - 03.06.09 (18)

Masbrough Cemetery

Born in the waterworks house, Frederick street, in 1869, he started his working career at the old Dalton filter beds, afterwards going to the Aldwarke Pumping Station as driver of the pumps. He was called from there to become water superintendent, the position he held at the time of his death. He had been directly responsible to the waterworks engineer for the supply and distribution of water throughout the borough, and it is a tribute to his untiring efforts in restricting wastage that the consumption of water per head is one of the lowest in the country.

Matthew’s grave

He was a prominent member and trustee of the Manchester Unity of Oddfellows (Parkgate Lodge), and at one time was actively associated with the St. John Ambulance Brigade. During the war he served as a special constable, and was later awarded a medal. He leaves a widow and five children, the youngest being three years of age. His late grandfather, Mr. Berry, was engineer and manager of the Rotherham Waterworks, and was in charge of the erection of the pumping engines in Frederick street in 1855. The funeral of Mr. Pinder took place at the Masbro’ Cemetery yesterday.

PINDER. – On August 21, 1922, at 84 Bethel road, Matthew Henry, beloved husband of Alice Pinder, aged 52 years.

Alice’s grave in Ruskington

Philip Pinder had told my father that Matthew’s headstone, in Masbrough Cemetery, Rotherham, had been cleared by the Council and we failed to find it on a number of visits to the cemetery. However, in 2013, I stumbled across Matthew’s grave purely by chance. I suspect that quite a lot of vegetation had been cut back, hence revealing the grave.

Matthew’s widow, Alice, ended up in Ruskington, Lincolnshire, living with her two elderly unmarried sisters. I don’t know when she left Bethel Road or when she permanently moved to Ruskington, but I believe that in between, she may have lived with her son Jack in both Rotherham and perhaps Surrey also. I know that in the mid 1940s, Alice was living in Wickersley with my father’s family. Alice died in 1959 and is buried with her two sisters in Ruskington Cemetery.

Thomas Pinder

Possible photo of Thomas Pinder

Thomas Pinder is my third great grandfather and he was born October 1806 in Worksop, Nottinghamshire to parents, Robert and Elizabeth.  The obituary below, however, contradicts Thomas’s birth place.

In 1827, Thomas took up residence in Rotherham. His first known address is in Westgate. Westgate was an important and densely populated area of Rotherham in the 19th century and continued to be so until the middle of the last century, when newer housing estates were constructed on the outskirts of Rotherham. My mother was born in Westgate during the 1930s.

Thomas’s first wife, whose surname I do not currently know, is called Maria. Thomas and Maria issued four children who were called, Robert Thomas (1831 to 1905), Hannah (1832 to 1872), Mary Ann (1835 to 1836) and William Shackleton (1836 to 1836).

Westgate, Rotherham - 30.01.05 (2)

Westgate

Thomas’s son, Robert, married Mary Ann Allcock during 1852 in the Independent Masbrough Chapel, Rotherham and after her death in 1855, he married again, to Hannah Shackleton. Robert and Hannah, with their daughter, emigrated to Australia in the 1880s where a considerable number of their descendants now reside.

Thomas’s wife, Maria, died in 1836 and Thomas married again, to Mary Shackleton, in 1843. The relationship between Mary, Thomas’s fourth child with Maria and Robert’s first wife, Hannah Shackleton, is discussed in this entry.

156-independant-masbrough-chapel-rotherham-grave-84-5

Pinder burial plot next to the Walker Mausoleum

With Mary Shackleton, Thomas issued seven children, called, Ebenezer (1843 to 1843), Maria (1844 to 1847), Francis (1846 to 1935), Alfred Henry (1849 to 1887), Martha (1851 to 1871), James Heath (1853 to 1931) and Mary Ann (1855 to 1913).

It is interesting to note that Maria (Thomas’s first wife), Mary Ann Allcock and all of Thomas’s infants are all buried in the same plot in the burial ground of the Independent Masbrough Chapel, Rotherham. This Chapel was founded by the Walker family (the former owners of Clifton Hall), when they split from the Rotherham Methodist meeting in 1762. Sadly, this Chapel was recently demolished following a fire. The Pinder burial plot lies next to the Walker Mausoleum, although no headstone survives.

hope-street-rotherham-28-05-09-4

Hope Street

Thomas’s daughter, Martha, died May 1871 in 109 Hope Street, Rotherham from hemiplegia and exhaustion after confinement. Basically, Martha had suffered a stroke and died from complications whilst giving birth to her daughter, Patty. Patty only survived a couple of months without her mother, succumbing to marasmus (undernourishment).

109 is an address number that frequently features in my family database. It is also coincidental that Martha’s great great niece, Beryl Marjory Mollekin, also died from complications arising from giving birth, 75 years later.

At Masbro’, on the 22nd of May, Martha, daughter of Mr. Thomas Pinder, plumber, aged 20 years.

As mentioned in the obituary below, Thomas was a religious man and a Deacon at Doncaster Road Congregational Church, Rotherham (now Rotherham Civic Theatre). Many of Thomas’s descendants, even today, are still followers of nonconformist religions in the Rotherham area. Thomas recorded significant family names and dates in his bible, which has been invaluable when attempting to untangle the myriad of ‘nonconformist’ events.

Thomas quite literally dropped down dead whilst walking along Joseph Street, Rotherham in March 1878, the cause being attributed to heart disease and chronic bronchitis. My father nearly suffered a similar fate in a street but fortunately modern medical treatment intervened.

Thomas was buried in Moorgate Cemetery, Rotherham with his second wife, Mary (who died in 1889 in Eastwood Lane, Rotherham) and daughter, Martha. There is no surviving headstone, although I have photographed the plot in which they rest.

FUNERAL OF THE LATE MR. THOMAS PINDER. – Mr. Thomas Pinder, of Thornhill, who for 27 years had been in the employment of Messrs. Yates, Haywood, and Co., died in a very sudden manner on Saturday afternoon last. The deceased was a native of Ripon, and was born in 1806. In 1820, he removed to the village of Gringley, near Bawtry; to serve his apprenticeship. In 1827, he came to Rotherham, to work for Mr. Binks, plumber, &c., and succeeded to that business in 1837. He remained thus connected until 1848, when he was engaged to take to the plumbing, glazing, and gas department, at the Effingham works, a position he held up to his death. He was a member and deacon of the Congregational Church from the time it was first established. He was also an active member of the Loyal Parkgate Lodge of the Independent Order of Oddfellows, Manchester Unity, for 46 years. Having gone through the various offices of the lodge and district, he was a Past Provincial Grand Master, and had the honour of representing the Rotherham District at the Worcester Annual Moveable Committee. For some time Mr. Pinder took a conspicuous part and a warm interest in the working of the Widow and Orphans’ Fund, as President. The deceased was interred on Tuesday, at the Rotherham Cemetery, and his funeral was attended by the Mayor (J. C. Morgan, Esq.), Mr. Jas. Foster, Mr. S. Liversidge, Mr. Cormack, and Mr. J. Newsum, deacons of the Congregational Church. There were also in attendance Mr. Wm. Eskholme, Grand Master; P.P.G.M. George Joseph Jackson, corresponding secretary; P.P.G.M. George Stother, examining officer; P.G. John Morris, P.G. Samuel Haywood, Bro. W. Stones (sick visitor of the Parkgate lodge), Bro. William Foster, and other members. Mr. W. Haywood was also present on behalf of the firm. Brother the Rev. P. C. Barker, M.A., LL.B., the officiating minister, at the conclusion of the usual service for the dead, read, in an impressive manner, the Oddfellows’ address.

Alfred Henry Pinder is my second great uncle. He was born in 1846 to parents, Thomas Pinder and Mary Shackleton.

Alfred was born in 1849 and in 1876, he married Betsy Elenor Jarvis. Together, they issued three children, one of them being Frank Jarvis Pinder.

Alfred died in 1887 and below is his obituary..

THE ROTHERHAM ADVERTISER, SATURDAY, JULY 9, 1887.

Masbrough Independent Chapel

A sad duty remains to be done – to pay a tribute of respect to the memory of Bro. Alfred Henry Pinder, the news of whose sudden death startled all those who heard it yesterday. During a considerable portion of last year, he did not enjoy the best of health, but latterly he seemed to have regained strength. He was one of three sons of the late Mr Thomas Pinder, and they, like their father, have all been members of the Manchester Unity of Oddfellows. Bro. A. H. Pinder was connected with the Phoenix Lodge, and on the formation of the George’s Lodge, at Masbro’, a few years ago, he was appointed secretary, a position which he has held since. When Bro. G. J. Jackson removed to New Zealand, in the autumn of 1885, Bro. A. H. Pinder was appointed corresponding secretary of the district, but at the close of last year he found it necessary to resign the office in consequence of ill-health. He was a Past Provincial Grand Master of the Rotherham District. Almost his last public act in connection with the Oddfellowship was to discharge the duty of one of the marshals of the Manchester Unity portion of the Jubilee procession; and on Monday evening he was in his usual position as secretary of the George’s Lodge, when he was apparently in his ordinary health and strength. He was a member of the choir of the Masbro’ Independent Chapel, and was always willing to lend a hand in musical circles.

Saint Thomas's Church, Kimberworth - 15.11.13 (4)

Saint Thomas’s Church

For many years he had been time-keeper at the Masbro’ Stove Grate works of Messrs. Corbitt and Co., Limited, and he leaves a widow and three young children to mourn his loss. He was 38 years of age. On Wednesday night he had what was apparently a return of the affection of the bowels from which he had suffered previously, and Dr. Walker was hastily summoned. He was unremitting in his attentions, but his death ensued yesterday morning from biliary colic. Bro. Pinder will be missed throughout a wide circle, and much sympathy will be felt for his wife and children. During last year the writer enjoyed Bro. Pinder’s counsel and support in the performance of many arduous duties, and it is with him a melancholy duty to pen this tribute to one who was in every respect a thoroughly good-hearted and genial Oddfellow. The funeral will take place on Sunday afternoon, at Kimberworth Church.

PINDER. – July 8th, at Masbro’ street, Masbro’. Mr Alfred Henry Pinder, aged 38.
