Hi,
I am researching my Grandfather's family - Walter Proctor born 1892 - who was married to Evelyn and until the 1970's lived in Cobden Street, Harle Syke. His father was Thomas Proctor, mother Alice with brothers William, Rennie and sister Clara. In 1901 census the family were living at Pig Hole Mill, Briercliffe, also the Quaker Houses and Meeting Houses in Briercliffe. Both Walter and Evelyn worked at Queen Street Mill until the 1960s.
I would be grateful for any information about this family, where they lived and worked - as I am trying to build up as much information about my family as possible so that I can pass this down to my children. Although I now live in Nottingham, I have many happy memories of time spent in and around Harle Syke as a child visiting my grandparents (I then lived in North Wales) and I'll never forget seeing my Grandmother at work in the weaving sheds at Queen Street Mill.
Any information, direct or indirect would be gratefully received.

Sorry - I have a number of Proctors on my tree but none of them have the names you mention.
Good hunting

Thankyou re Pig Hole Mill - I'll probably be making a trip 'up North' in the spring and will definately check out this location, and maybe even knock on your friends door! I'm also researching the Cockcroft family, who were originally from Bacup, but lived in Harle Syke from 1930s to 1950s. Mother Mary Ellen Cockcroft nee. Whitworth born 1900, husband Percy Cockcroft born 1900, and their 3 sons Stanley, Jack, Ivor (my father) and Terry. I know they lived at Oaken Bank for a while. Again, any information always appreciated.

Hi

I was interested to see this posting - I am not sure at the moment wether this is the same family as mine but I think it may be! My great grandfather was Arthur Proctor who was the son of Thomas Proctor and Alice Lambert. Arthur never actually lived with his parents - don't know why - he was brought up by his grandpaents Robert Proctor and Elizabeth Nuttall, and by one of his paternal aunts Sarah Eastwood nee Proctor.
Arthur had siblings Willie b. 1885, Walter b. 1893, Rennie b.1896 and Clara b. 1901 - if this sounds correct then please let me know I would be interedsted to hear from you

Regards

Anne

Hi Anne
We are definately researching the same family - my grandfather was Walter Proctor, son of Thomas Proctor and Alice Lambert. I have never been aware of a brother Arthur, but my grandfather used to tell me what a poor family they were, so perhaps thats why Arthur went to live with his grandparents. Also I knew that their grandfather was Robert, but didn't know his wife's name, so now I have another surname - Nuttall - to look into, so thank you for getting in touch. I can't work out what relation we are to each other, but we both have some Proctor blood in us! I haven't yet managed to trace Willie, Rennie or Clara, so if you have any information about them I would be very grateful.

Thankyou, Sarah

Hello. I'm new to this forum but am interested in researching my family tree. My surname is Proctor. I kno we have lived around briercliffe for generations. Pretty sure that I will be involved with this family tree in some way. My Grandfather was Bill/Willie Proctor and was born on bank street. Probably around 1910ish. If anyone could send me a copy of their tree I would be grateful. Maybe I can help in some way.

I can remember my grandmother Elsie Proctor (nee Bates) mentionioning Pighole mill a lot. I think she was born on walverden lane but not sure
