Shared note
Mother died soon after W. was born. He was brought up by a family whose head was John Smith. We understand he was an eccentric religious man who prayed in fields behind walls. W. worked at Prince Smiths. He had some money because he bought 3 houses in Bar Lane. He gave one to son Smith and one to my GGrandfather Fred. See letter from solicitor to grandad saying what a lucky young man he was owning property at such a young age. W. was brought up C of E. He married in church.I don't know from what age he moved to the Methodists. William Nunweek, my great grandfather was born in Morton Banks, Riddlesden on November 8th 1843. His mother Elizabeth died within two months of his birth. He was christened at Bingley Parish Church in April 1944. By 1851 0n the Census returns Thomas (William's father) was living at Thwaites with his mother and five of his children. William was now 7 years old and a scholar living with a family called Smith at KIln Bank, Riddlesden. John Smith and his wife Hannah broughtup William along with their three children who weresome years older than William. John was a farm servant and we understand he was an eccentric religious man who prayed behind stone walls. In the 1861 Census William was working as a mechanic and was now a boarder with the Smith family. ON October 16th 1869 William married Hannah Fortune at Morton Church near Bingley. (Riddlesden Church was not consecrated to perform marriages at this time) Hannah was the daughter of William Fortune, a furnituremaker who died along with his wife when Hannah was quite young. We find her in 1861 working as a nurse and living with her sister and brother-in-law Tom Driver at 6 Low Banks. With her were other brothers and sister namely - Joseph, Asquith, James and Judith. By 1871 William and Hannah were also living in Low Banks. William's occupation was an iron-turner and I believe he worked at Prince Smiths, a large engineering firm in the town of Keighley. On April 16th 1871 a son was born. He was named Smith presumably after John Smith as a mark of respect for bringing up William. A second son Fred was born on August 17th 1876 (he was my grand father). I know little about my grandfather's upbringing. I believe he went to Riddlesden School and then went to work at Prince Smiths along with his older brother Smith. In 1901 Charlotte Nunweek died leaving a quarter of her estate to William Nunweek her youngest brother. By 1904 three houses in Bar Lane, Riddlesden had been bought; two of which he gave to his children. So when my grandfather married in 1904 he had a house to take his new bride to. William died in 1907 and was buried in Riddlesden Church Yard.
