HARGREAVES of 99 Burnley Road, Harle Syke. I am the grand-daughter of Levi Hargreaves and Clara Hargreaves (nee Simpson). They had four children - Norah (now 93!) Richard (my father now deceased) Beatrice (aged 87) and John (now deceased). Levi and Clara are buried in a marked grave in Haggate Cemetery along with Denis Lightowler (Beatrice's husband). Levi was a member of a large family of Hargreaves' who I believe were carters at some stage. Both Norah and Beatrice as youngsters worked in the Siberia Mill. Norah used to run the bakery on Burnley Road not far from 99. I believe the shop is now a plumbers. Anybody who knows more or wants to communicate on Harle Syke life in the 20th century is welcome to contact me on holidays@french-leave.com Caroline JONES (nee Hargreaves)

Hi Caroline, welcome to the site.

I have a Sagar Thomas Hargreaves who married into my Sutcliffes. Any connection?

Kris, don't you have Simpsons?

Hi Mel, yes, I have a large Simpson tree, but these Simpson’s lived at Lowerhouse, Habergham Eaves, and as far as I know they are not related to the Haggate branch.

James Henry Pickles (1876-1932) is Susannah’s (1866-1936) younger brother, so he must be your Gt. Uncle. http://www.briercliffesociety.co.uk/Sol ... ickles.htm

Susannah’s parents are James Pickles (1832-1886) b. Worshorne, and Hannah Leaver (1835-1915) b. Extwistle, so Caroline is also related to Noel Harry Leaver http://www.briercliffesociety.co.uk/Pho ... Leaver.htm

It is with great sadness that we report that Beatrice Lightowler (nee Hargreaves) passed away at the Dove Court Residential and Nursing Home in Burnley at 0530 hours on 26 June 2014. She will be buried at Haggate Cemetery alongside her husband Denis at about 1130 hours on Friday 4 July 2014.

Caroline Jones is now contactable on seynes@outlook.com The "holidays" address no longer applies.

Sorry to hear that. My sympathies to those who knew her well.
