Jack Wood

#4487
collection V. E. Tomlinson
Jack Wood was taken on as a farmer lad at Kirkham Gate by John Blackburn and a year later came to Batley to work as a carrier and farmer man combined. An interesting account of his retirement in 1910 is copied from an old typescript in my possession:-

50 YEARS WITH ONE FIRM

On Wednesday last the 23rd Instant (Martinmas Day)*Jack Wood completed fifty years service at Blackburn's Old Mill, Batley.

To celebrate the event a dinner was held at the Bath Hotel in the evening, to which a number of the oldest employees were invited. During the evening several presentations were made to him. Speeches were made by the Chairman (H.D. Smith) Ald. J.W. Blackburn, Mr. Harry Blackburn, Ben Gledhill, J. Tyrall, W. Roebuck, J.G. Curry, Allen Buckley and D. Sheard.

Songs, Duets, etc. were sung by Ald. J. W. Blackburn, Mr. H. E. Whitaker (Registrar) H. D, Smith, W. Farrar, Joe Wilson, B. Gledhill, W. Blackburn and J. A. Gregory.

On Martinmas Day 1860 Jack Wood entered the service of the late John Blackburn as a Farmer lad at Kirkham Gate. He came to Batley the following year to commence work as a Carrier and Farmer man combined. He has held this position ever since. He well remembers the late Mr. John Blackburn hunting with Clayton Harriers.

At that time Jack Wood ploughed and tilled the land now the site on which stands Skelsey Mill. The Cemetery, Woodwell, Bankfoot, were at that time open fields in which he worked regularly. He can speak about ploughing the fields then stretching from Commercial Street to Wellington Street at present known as the Batley Market Place.

He recalls the kindly interest the late John Blackburn took in his Competitors. How he used to send help in case of Fire or any other misfortune which befell them. In the spring of each year he used to enquire of the Rag Merchants, who nearly all owned or rented a piece of Arable land, if it was not time they were getting their seed in. They invariably excused themselves by saying they were too busy in the Rag Trade, and had no time to bother with Farming. As a result Jack used to be sent to lend a helping hand in ploughing and sowing. John Brown, Benj. Spedding (Father of the late George and James Spedding), John Gregory, John Spurr (Anthony Spurr's father) are a few of the Raggers referred to.

He distinctly remembers the Rejoicings at the close of the Crimean War, when sheep and Oxen were roasted whole, in nearly every town in England, also the Denby Dale Pie which was substituted for Sheep and Oxen.

He speaks of the following mills at Batley being built, Bankfoot, Alexandra, Little Orme, Dock Ing, Perseverance, Portions of Bottoms Mill and Queen Street Mills. The Cheapside Mill fire of 1860 was witnessed by him.

During the whole of his career as a Carrier he has only had to appear before the Magistrates once and that was for furious driving and risking the lives of the Passengers on a lurry.He was returning from Carlton with 31 of the sorkpeople who had been on a day's outing when the horses were frightened by something, and got out of control. Fortunately none of the passengers were any worse and Jack Wood got off with a fine. He still retains the summons which charges him with "Furious Driving and risking the lives of the Passengers on the Lurry".

He narrowly escaped being killed forty years ago by a Rag Machine "flying" in the Mill now occupied by W.J. R. Fox and Sons. He was ploughing at the time in the field where the carpet works are now erected. One of the Lags from the Rag Machine stuck him on the ear and rendered him senseless. He was carried home as one dead but fortunately survived. He still bears the scar where he was struck. Standing close by were the late Mr. George Blackburn and Ald. J.W. Blackburn who considered themselves very fortunate in escaping unhurt, as Pieces of Iron were flying in all directions.

Out of the 230 workpeople employed by Mr. Blackburn.

4 have served between 40 and 50 years
9 have served between 30 and 40 years
14 have served between 20 and 30 years
15 have served between 15 and 20 years
20 have served between 10 and 15 years

Most of these old employees are engaged in the shoddy department, the carpet weaving which employs nearly 100 hands having only been recently established.
