Jack O'Nancy's (Leaver)
During his later years was a director at Queen Street Mill. In his younger days had some position of authority in the building of the Culvert Bridge in Yorkshire Street.

…The other was from Mrs Christine Williamson, of Great Yarmouth, who claims Jack O'Nancy's as her great grandfather.
Letters like these are a great reward and appreciation of what I have written - I have a box full of them. I will give you some extracts from the letter.
"My aunt, who was Isabella Wiles, from your village, sent the cutting to my mother and said he (Jack O'Nancy's) is your grandfather. He was a building inspector, and was always very smart going to work. He wore a navy blue suit - shoes shined until you could see yourself in them."
Isabella's sister, Mary, married James Walsh, of Princess Street, Nelson, and they moved to Taunton and then Lowestoft, where he completed his career as Borough Treasurer. Mary was granddaughter of Jack O'Nancy's.
They had a son, Peter Thomas Walsh, who was awarded a PhD. and is now lecturing in geology in the Civil Engineering Department of City University, London - a not-too-distant step from the building of bridges in Yorkshire Street.
Jack O'Nancy's great granddaughter, who wrote this letter, is a teacher in Great Yarmouth and has two daughters who have the middle name of Leaver. One of his great great grandsons attended Haberdashers public school in London.
The two sisters, Isabella and Mary, were both educated at Haggate and both were afterwards employed at Queen Street. I can see the imprint of Jack O'Nancy's in his great grandson - a great tribute to a Lancashire beginning.

Thomas Wiles was a widower when he married Nanny Leaver. His first wife was Betsy Driver who died in 1906. Isabella was the only child (that I have found) of Thomas's first marriage.
Betsy was the daughter of William Driver and Nancy Sutcliffe. (Nancy Sutcliffe was the daughter of Henry Sutcliffe and Sarah Stuttard)
