SIMEON LORD

1771-1840

 

Simeon was the fourth child of Simeon Lord and Ann Fielden, yeoman farmers who lived at Dobroyd, Todmorden. His uncle on his mother's side was Joshua Fielden of Edge End, founder of the Fielden dynasty of Merchant Princes in Todmorden. In 1790 he was found guilty of stealing 100 yards of cotton cloth to the value of six pence and 100 yards of calico to the value of four pence. He was transported to Australia for 7 years. He worked his way up and became one of the most influential merchants of Sydney.

His illustrated biography has been written by Belinda Cohen and appears on her website, shown below, and there is nothing further I can add.
