Notes

Abraham Crossley (1829-1907), joiner and cabinet maker, was an occupier of the premises from 1875 to 1890.

 

Extract from the Todmorden and Hebden Bridge Almanac 1902

Abraham Crossley, a joiner of Gauxholme, was associated with KNOWLWOOD CHAPEL over 64 years, 40 of which he was school superintendent. He was greatly involved with the building of the original school and became a lay preacher in the chapel. He was born at GAUXHOLME STONES FARM in 1829, the son of Abraham Crossley senior, a copperas manufacturer of COPPERAS HOUSE, and his wife Ellen Wood.

In 1901 at the age of 72, Abraham retired from active life at the chapel. His retirement was commemorated with a special day at the chapel during which Mr. James Law presented him with a marble timepiece inscribed, “presented to Abm. Crossley by the teachers and scholars of Knowlwood Sunday School as a token of esteem for long and faithful service. April 27th 1901”. He was also presented with a walking stick and umbrella, and a framed portrait photograph of him was hung on the wall of the Sunday School.
