The below taken from "The Yorkshire Magazine" I have before me a crown 8vo. Printed and Published by J. At the end of the tract is an "Elegy, by S. Cryer," which does more credit to the hermit than to its writer.

Behind the title is another series of rhymes which may be by the author of the pamphlet, as both the prose part and the verses are anonymous, and betray the fact that the writer was born before the day of School Boards. There is a somewhat minute account of Job's dress, but "X" has seen him, and has given a brief description of his garb, so I pass by the shell and look at the kernel.

The writer I am following says: Job is described as the illegitimate son of Ann Senior, who "lived somewhere about Beck Foot, near Ilkley, when Job was born: Ann had another son whose name was John. It is said that their father's name was Hawksworth, and that at his death he left Job and his brother some little money.

For many years after this he worked at various jobs, spending his leisure, and more, in intemperance. When he was about sixty years of age, he fell in " with an old widow living alone in a cottage near Coldstone Beck, Burley Wood Head, on the borders of Rumbalds Moor.

Job fell in love with her, or " if not with the widow, probably with her property," for she possessed not only the cot but a potato garden and field. They married, and seem to have been happy enough until her death, when her relations "determined to rid the old man off the spot;" yet though they managed to "wrest the field out of his hands," they could not induce him to relinquish the garden and cot; however, they destroyed the latter, and on its site and from its ruins Job constructed the hut which was his home till his end; and from which he probably received his designation.

He had "learnt to sing with four voices at the Leeds Parish Church. His last trip is said to have been to the neighborhood of Silsden, where, it has been conjectured, he was drugged by some boon companions; but be that as it may, he had a sudden, and violent attack of diarrhea. He got back to Ilkley, "was conveyed to Carlton Workhouse, and died there, aged 77 years. He is buried in Burley church-yard.

It was thought that he must have saved money during the last few years of his life, but if so, it had a mysterious disappearance. He was employed as a labourer by the farmers round Ilkley; but afterwards went to live at Whitkirk, near Leeds.

He there fell into disorderly ways, drank, and became careless in his dress and dirty in his habits. Yet he was a good workman, and when he returned to Ilkley he was readily engaged by the farmers to plough, mow, and reap for them.

He was a good fencewaller, and being a man of prodigious strength, is said to have used very heavy stones for the purpose, and when days were short he was frequently seen walling by candlelight. Some of his walls are still pointed out, and the large stones he lifted elicit surprise. In winter he employed himself in wool-combing at a place called The Castle, near Ilkley. It is related of him that he once laid himself down on the combing-shed floor, and that some of his fellow workmen chalked out his figure on the floor.

By this outline he used to cut his shirts, the material being coarse harden, sewed with strong hemp-string. Job was at one time an hostler in the village, and a person who knew him well at the time says that at this period his dissipated habits made him the subject of many a practical joke. He was afterwards employed by the farmers at Burley Woodhead; but as he became old and infirm, and troubled with rheumatism, he could not work as formerly, but did what he could, making no stipulations for wages, but asking only for his board, and that his employers should pay him whatever extra they thought his labour entitled him to receive.

He said he had picked up his " four voices" by listening to the choir in Leeds parish church. He usually sang sacred hymns, such as "While shepherds watched their flocks by night," "Christians, awake," and the Old Hundredth.

He went about the country in winter, singing in four parts for money, and his performance was sufficiently remarkable for him to be brought to perform in public at the theatre at Leeds, and in the Headingly Gardens and the Woolsorters1 Gardens at Bradford, where he stayed for weeks at a time.

He would sleep in any outbuilding or blacksmith's shop; indeed, he was so dirty that few people would like to have given him a bed in their houses. He used to walk leaning on two rough sticks, wearing a pair of heavy wooden clogs on his feet, stuffed with hay, his legs bandaged with straw. His coat was of many colours and much patched; his trousers were to match. He wore no braces, but kept his trousers in position with a hempen belt, part of an old horse-girth, which he buckled round his body.

A bag on his back was fastened at the front to his belt. His head was adorned with a hat of the most antique shape, without a brim, and stitched together with hemp-string. The condition of his skin, which had not seen water for years, need not be described.

His hair, once jetty black, now hung in heavy clotted locks on his shoulders. His eyebrows were back and prominent; his eyes low-set and watery. He wore a coarse beard, grizzled with age; and very dirty. From his hat depended a tobacco-pipe, hung by a string. Job's end came as he was on one of his singing rounds. It is thought that some youngsters drugged his drink, in prank, at Silsden, and the consequences were a violent attack of English cholera. He got back to Ilkley, and crept into a barn belonging to the White Sheaf Inn; but the landlord seeing that his end was near, sent for the parish authorities, and he was moved to the Carlton workhouse, as he belonged to Burley.

He died in the course of a few days at the age of seventy-seven, and was buried in Burley churchyard, near Otley. See the Damems mills page for more on the Ropers.

Daughter Mary married Joseph Bottomley and they lived in Newsholme.

We know he was a shopkeeper in at some point he had also worked as a whitesmith. In the cencus he is recorded as Proprietor of houses and living at Westgate. Rose went to the marriage with four children.

Rose married James Stell in The property did not seem to have a firm address, but it was located on Branchshaw Moor. James Stell is still living here in William Sharp father was also called William, he had been a worsted manufacturer at Mill Bridge and Low Street, making drawboys.

Behind the Inn stood some farm buildings which his son William used as a warehouse for storing and weighing wool. He had many business interests he also owned properties at Oldfield, Lawkholrne, Long Lee and Halifax. He held shares in the Leeds and Liverpool Canal, and an interest in a Keighley to Halifax turnpike road. William's will is dated and by this time all his daughters are married, he leaves his properties to be shared between them, with provision for his son Willaims up keep and funeral.

They had a son, Benjamin. William the rejected groom out lived his siblings. Sharps of Intake and Whin Knowl From information that we found in John Hodgson's book we have been able to find out a little of this family.

We shall start with William, born at Field Head near Newsholme. Despite being out in the wilds and the lack of learning facilities around him, by the time he was an adult he had enough suitable education and qualifications to apply and be accepted for a post working for a London Solicitor.

During his time there he was taken by the press gang, but his employers thought so much about him they fought for his release, and won. After around twenty years he returned to Keighley. He had managed while in London to save a considerable sum of money and bought the estate which contained Intake off North Dean Road and Whin Knowl farms.

Living at Intake he started business as a manufacturer of stuff pieces. After Williams death Samuel along with his brother James continued the business of manufacturer of stuff pieces. We can find not record of their business after and wonder if the Butterworth panic had anything to do with them giving up or if we have just not been able to find the documentation. Eldest son Samuel carried on at Intake, but farming.

After Samuel's death three of his children, James, John and Sarah carried on running the farm, but in both boys died, leaving Sarah alone. We tracked Sarah down in the census and find her still there at the age of 65 running the farm which is shown with 21 acres with two female servants. This particular line of Sharps seem to have come to an end here. His measurements and calculations being almost faultless.

His greatness not noticed until after he retires from post when it took twice the salary to achieve the same amount of work. Nanny died unmarried aged forty seven. William a School Master moved out of Whin knowl after getting married and somewhere between and changed occupation to Coal Agent. Viewing the census we see another change in career to Income Tax Collector but he is now living at Intake.

I suspect that after Sarah's death he took over the property. It is his son James who farms the land at Intake. Once reaching manhood Williams other son Samuel Tertius Sharp, moves into the town to become a book keeper. Back a generation to the children of James, another son Thomas lived at Whin Knowl with an occupation of book keeper. Samuel starts off with an occupation of wool sorter, and once married to Mary Shackleton the daughter of Abraham Shackleton landlord of the Lord Rodney, moves into the town and continues with this occupation, until around when he turns to book keeping.

After the death of his wife he returns to Whin Knowl and farms the land alongside his brothers. James remained at the farm until his death farming the land. After the death of her first husband Maria had taken work at the Lord Rodney Inn. William Smith farmed acres of Cavindish land in While looking at the census our eyes fell on an entry for James Smith, High Street, Grocer and tobacco manufacture.

Of his many children one of them, John would continue the tobacco side of things while his mother Elizabeth looked after the grocery side. One of their children, John went on to be a tobacco and cigar manufacturer. Alfred had been part of Tetley and Smith worsted manufacturers of Skipton, after the end of this partnership he continued for some time in Skipton before entering the loom making business.

Elizabeth died in James and Elizabeth had a son John who had been at the Kings Arms in Keighley, in he comes to the Roe Buck and is brewing and farming 97 acres. Corn Millers For our next Smith family the earliest we can start with any certainty is with William Smith who married Elizabeth Thompson.

William was the son of James and Elizabeth Smith. We know that James was a miller in , and we know he was at Stockbridge in , but we later found from an item in the Keighley News 16 May that he was the Landlord at the Kings Arms on Church Street in the 's.

James father John being the licensee before him. William Smith born was the son of James, the corn miller at Stockbridge. Instead of becoming a miller, William started out making clocks, and was involved in this occupation from about until around They had at least ten children.

Lawrence who started of as a whitesmith and mechanic later became a grocer, he married Susanna Pearson, she was the daughter of Sugden Person who was a carrier living and working from Market Street. A daughter of Lawrence and Susanna, Elizabeth Smith married William Gregson Roper of Haworth, who started off working for his father in the Main Street of Haworth but came down to Keighley to set up on his own account as wholesale and retail Grocer. Two of Lawrence's son's would follow the family trade, Person and Thomas.

Back now to other children of William and Elizabeth. George Smith the youngest of the children and a partner in the machine making business was by natural tendency more interested in horses, by he is describing himself as a farmer. George built himself a house called Lowfield, it stood next door to the library, on the site that would become the children's library, he bred some of the fastest trotting horses in the country.

Another daughter Thamer married John Clough the brother of Robert. Prince would name a son after himself, Prince Smith who would in turn have a son named Prince and would be called Prince Prince Smith, he married Maud Mary Wright the daughter of Henry Attorney at law. Some more Smiths who were corn millers , Robert was the brother of the above James We know from the entries in the Parish register for the birth of his children that in Robert , who was married to Anne Sugden in was living at Green Top, Braithwaite.

Son Martin was a Farrier at Strong Close. It is in Hodgsons Textile book where he says that William was the son of the corn miller at Stockbridge. David was a farmer at Hainworth Wood Bottom. Son Joseph carried on milling at Stockbridge. From the census of we can see that Joseph is still living at Stockbridge but is now farming, the corn milling now being done by John Wright.

Son of Joseph, John Smith who we trace in the census is a corn miller living on Eastwood Row, but we know not where he is working, possibly for the Wright family. Between and we found baptism entries for nine children, how many made it to adulthood we can not say.

There is then a gap of three years before the last two baptisms, Hannah Barraclough Smith and Abraham Barraclough Smith Abraham Barraclough Smith married Sarah Morton, and from the baptism of their children notice he is a corn miller at Stockbridge, Keighley, later he farms at Morton.

While we have mention of the name Barraclough, used in the last two children above, we are aware of a Joseph Barraclough who was a miller at Harden Beck in the late 's and early 's, he was married to an Elizabeth Smith. Their daughter Anne marries William Atkinson, and one of their son's Benjamin, a tailor by trade, married Susannah Pearson, daughter of Guy Pearson, corn miller.

John William is a named executer in his step fathers will. What we did notice was that we were not able to locate Fountain Head on any map, but on the census it is entered right before Brogden. A newspaper item we found in the The Bradford Observer, October 08, John Smith of Fountain Head, near Keighley.

In the census at Brogden, we have Ann and her husband, her father Jonas, listed as a lodger, and a John Smith age 32, in the relation to head column, the word relative has been written over and replaced with lodger.

Then very quickly, they were in the van, and I stopped to take a few deep breaths. Asylum seekers who go directly to official crossings are not supposed to be separated from their families, except in specific circumstances including if officials can't confirm the relationship between the minor and adults, safety of the children, or if the adult is being prosecuted.

Even so, about 2, children have been separated from their families at the border over a six-week period during a crackdown on illegal entries, according to US Department of Homeland Security figures obtained by The Associated Press on Friday. The figures show that 1, minors were separated from 1, adults between April 19 and May 31, breaking down to an average of 46 children per day being separated from their families. Both former first ladies Laura Bush and Michelle Obama shared their thoughts on what's been happening on social media over Sunday and Monday, respectively.

Bush tweeted a link to an op-ed she wrote for the Washington Post , adding: I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our international boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel. And it breaks my heart. The separations as reported were not broken down by age, and included separations for illegal entry, immigration violations, or possible criminal conduct by the adult. The new figures are for people who tried to enter the US between official border crossings.

Moore listens during the launch event of his book. Trump has blamed the Democrats for failing to compromise politically for family separations. But it's under the 'zero tolerance' policy announced by Attorney General Jeff Sessions that Department of Homeland Security officials are now referring all cases of illegal entry for criminal prosecution. US protocol prohibits detaining children with their parents because the children are not charged with a crime and the parents are.

The policy has been widely criticized by church groups, politicians and children's advocates who say it is inhumane. Last week, Sessions also made it more difficult for those hoping to seek asylum in the US, by placing more stringent restrictions on when it can be granted. In writing the opinion, Sessions exercised his discretion to overturn precedent, which four years ago acknowledged 'married women in Guatemala who are unable to leave their relationship' as a social group that may seek asylum in the US, NBC reported.

First Lady Melania Trump shared a statement on the state of affairs on Sunday,. Trump hates to see children separated from their families and hopes both sides of the aisle can finally come together to achieve successful immigration reform,' the statement read.
