John was born about 1818.[1]He was married to Harriett. [2] He was associated with Stockport, Cheshire.[2], and lived in Burton, Rossett.[2][3] On 17 September 1863, he left his home in a pony phaeton accompanied by his coachman and Mr and Mrs Nevin. When they were near to Croehowell Hill, Burton, some barking dogs came alongside and a whip was snapped at them. The pony jolted forward and John hit a brick wall. He suffered a fractured skull and dislocated neck. An Inquest into the incident returned the verdict of accidental death. [4]He was buried at All Saints, Gresford on 22 September 1863[1]
