Isaac Blackburn was born on 18 November 1858 at Outwood, Wakefield. He was the son of John Blackburn and Sarah Preston. Isaac Blackburn was baptized on 10 January 1861 at Batley.
In the census of 7 April 1861 he was listed as aged 2, the son of John Blackburn at Kirkham Cottage, East Ardsley.1
In the census of 2 April 1871 he was listed as a scholar, the son of John Blackburn.2

Isaac Blackburn was presented with a musical box, with plaques in English and German recording its presentation to Isaac Blackburn on his coming of age on 18 November 1879 by the workpeople of Perseverance Mills, Schoenweide. This would seem to indicate that he was involved with his father John Blackburn's venture there at an early stage.3

Isaac Blackburn married Mary Louisa Walshaw, daughter of Joshua Walshaw and Eliza Pickles, in 1885 at Scarborough.4

Brickmaking in Germany

German records show that in 1897 his father John Blackburn transferred ownership of his German brickyard at Miersdorf to Isaac.5
In 1899 Isaac Blackburn was listed as a brickmaker at Schoeneweide, Berlin.6
He had a large brick factory at Zeuthen, to the south-east of Berlin.7
He was a mourner at his father's funeral in 1900 at Batley and was described at the time as being largely interested in the brick-making industry in Germany.
His father's will places on record that he has made provision for Isaac by transferring to him certain brickyards situate in Germany and expending money thereon, so no further provision is made for him.8,9,10
In 1902 additional land was purchased in Zeuthen.7
In 1907 Isaac apparently went bankrupt. My father was told that there were problems with the type of clay.7,11
In the census of 2 April 1911 he was listed as the head of household at 8 Clough Road, Hull, as an engineer for steam engines etc.and employed by brickworks.12
He died before 1937.

William Blackburn was born circa 1800 at Batley. He was the son of William Blackburn and Martha (?). William Blackburn was baptized on 19 January 1800 at Dewsbury as son of William and Martha Blackburn of Batley.1
He married Sarah Thompson, daughter of Thomas Thompson and Ann Chadwick, on 18 January 1821 at Batley Both made their marks,
witnesses were Jo. Chadwick, Thomas Wilby.2

A Manufacturer William Blackburn is something of a puzzle, for little information about him has come to light. He was described in John's obituary as a manufacturer in a small way of business. This could mean merely someone working for himself, but his son John makes a comment about being teased by "the men" which may indicate that others were employed.

A debtor
William Blackburn was listed in the census of 6 June 1841 at York Castle, a prisoner for debt, along with others I believe to be from Batley: Barnabas Ineson, Mark Terry, Thomas Hall and Joshua Drake, all of whom are missing from their homes in Clerk Green at this time.3
William was must have been home the following year, for it would have been then that that his last child was conceived.
He died on 26 July 1849 at Batley. His son John was present, but death was attributed to unknown causes and not certified.4
He was buried on 29 July 1849 as William Blackburn of Clerk Green, aged 49.2

Charles Blackburn has not been found in censuses in England after this, and it has seemed likely that he was living in Berlin.

Charles Blackburn and the Berlin Sailing Club

Confirmation that Charles was in Berlin in the 1860s has come from a surprising source; enthusiastic sailors in Berlin researching the history of the Berlin Sailing Club, first formed in 1867, of which he was a founder member. There are indications that he had earlier taken part in the burgeoning sport of regatta sailing on the waters of East Berlin, and he participated in the club's first regatta with his yacht "Warrior". A Mr Jachmann often skippered for him, perhaps a relative of his wife. For a time Charles was president of the club, and later honorary chairman. Interestingly in the development of the history of competitive sailing, another member of an English family he must have known was Edward Drory, whose father had come to Berlin in the 1830s to set up a gas supply. It was through Edward's connection with the gas business that he moved to Austria where he was co- founder of the Union Yacht Club.4

He married Theresa Agnes Laura Jachmann at Berlin The children listed below are those of a Carl Blackburn and Therese Agnes Laura Jachmann. The middle daughter Wilhelmine's other names are those of her English grandmother and great grandmother.
We first find him in a Berlin Directory in 1873 where his name is alongside that of his brother John at a Shoddy and Mungo factory on Engel-ufer, now Engeldamm.5

In 1883 Charles won a Berlin sailing Trophy with his yacht "Nameless."
It seems the Sailing Club lost its identity for a time in the mid 1880s through a merger, but it was largely through Charles's efforts that it was re-founded in 1885.4

Charles Blackburn at Kopenick

Charles Blackburn purchased part of John Blackburn's business interests in Berlin around 1891. In 1893 Charles Blackburn was listed in a directory apparently replacing John.5
In 1896 Charles Blackburn was recorded as the owner of the mill at Kopenick, and at this time there was some rebuilding there following a fire. A carbonising drum was installed for filling with hydrochloric acid to remove cotton. Charles continued to be listed in directories as a manfacturer of shoddy cloth (Kunstwolle) and also as a rag merchant.6

In 1898 Charles Blackburn appears on the 1878/1879 membership list of the Berlin Sailing Club along with other Blackburns, a Charles junior, John, possibly his cousin who we know was in Berlin for a time, Mark Blackburn , his nephew, and a Max Blackburn.4

In 1899 Charles was in Batley for the funeral of his cousin George Blackburn.7
In later life Charles was drawn back to Wendisch Rietz on the Scharmützelsee, a lake to the south-east of Berlin where he had sailed, and spent summers on a houseboat there.4
He died on 25 July 1914 shortly before the outbreak of the first World War.4

John Sheard was born on 7 June 1820 at Batley.1
He was the son of Michael Sheard and Sarah Newsome. John Sheard was baptized on 2 July 1820 at Batley.2
In the census of 6 June 1841 he was listed as as a cloth ---- the son of Michael Sheard.3

John Sheard married Sarah Ward, daughter of Charles Ward and Ann Birkby, on 4 April 1844 at Batley by licence, the witnesses being Samuel Ward, William Walker and John Newsome.2,4
In the census of 30 March 1851 he was listed as the head of household at Havercroft, Batley, as a woollen manufacturer employing 350 people and living next to his brother Joseph also so described, the firm of Michael Sheard and Sons at this time comprisng father Michael and his two elder sons.5
John Sheard's entry in the Poll Book in 1859 gives an address at Wellington Street.
He was listed as the head of household in the 7 April 1861 census at Wellington St, Batley, now a wool cloth manufacturer employing 511 persons.6

His father died in in 1861 and his mother two years later. It may have been soon after this that he and Sarah moved into Dryfield House, his parents' former home. The house was actually left to Richard Arthur, the youngest son, and the only child still at home, but there must have been some family arrangement made, for Richard Arthur seems to have moved out on his marriage.

Hick Well Mills
in 1861 Burnleys' Hick Well Mills were offered for sale, and presumably it was at this time that the Sheards purchased them. The sale particulars mention rag grinding rooms and also additional land and nineteen cottages.

Sheards appear to have been at this time in possession of The Old Mill. It may have been as a consequence of the Hick Well purchase that the Sheards were to offer it for sale. John Blackburn was to purchase it in 1862.7

A Civic Role
in 1869 John Sheard was elected a member of the new Town Council for the West Ward, being described as a moderate Liberal in politics. At the inaugural meeting he was elected one of Batley's first Aldermen.

On the 9th of November of that year he was elected Mayor, following Mr John Jubb.
Early in in 1870 John Sheard was was elected one of the first ten magistrates for the Borough Commission of the Peace.

John was listed as the head of household in the 2 April 1871 census at Dryfield House, Healey, Batley, as an Alderman, J.P. & retired woollen manufacturer. A housemaid, his wife Sarah's niece Hannah Phillips, and kitchen maid Harriett Robinson are employed, and a coachman, Robert Perkin is living next door.8

He died on 13 September 1875 at age 55.
He was buried on 16 September 1875 at Batley Cemetery. The funeral arrangements were said to have been admirably carried out by  Eli Ibberson , primarily a draper, but a former neighbour and fellow councillor who was probably happy to do this service for an old friend.1,9

Descendants of Michael Sheard born 1688
Michael Sheard was born on 8 April 1798 at Batley. He was the son of Michael Sheard and Sarah Lister. Michael Sheard was baptized on 29 April 1798 at Batley.
He married Sarah Newsome, daughter of Abraham Newsome and Hannah Sheard, on 3 April 1820 at Batley Witnesses were David Sheard and Jo Chadwick.1
In 1822 Michael Sheard and his father Michael Sheard were listed as flushing manufacturers in Baines Directory.2
In 1834 Michael Sheard was listed in Pigot's Dewsbury directory as:-
Sheard Michael, jun. Batley, flushing and drugget manufacturer.3
He was one of the executors and a beneficiary of the will of his father Michael Sheard the Elder. If, as eldest son, he seems less generously provided for than the next but one son, George, this may reflect that he was already established in business on his own account.
In 1838 Michael Sheard gave his workmen a dinner to celebrate the royal coronation.4

He soon moved to a new house at the Hick Lane end of Commercial Street, which is said to have borne the inscription M.S.S. 1840.
His father's will had mentioned looms and jennies, but these were still hand machines, and could have been housed alongside domestic premises.5
In the census of 6 June 1841 he was listed as the head of household at Havercroft, Batley, as a Cloth manufacturer.6
In 1842 an entry in a Leeds Directory for Mcl and Son as Flushing, etc. manufacturers may now refer to Michael with his eldest son.
In the 30 March 1851 census he was listed as the head of household at Havercroft, Batley, as a cloth manufacturer, firm of 3 listed as employing 350 hands.7

In 1852 Joseph Megson , who had married the sister of Michael Sheard the younger,was described as agent for Messrs Michael Sheard and Sheard and Senior when he gave a dinner for between 30 and 40 weavers at the Flying Horse Inn, Ossett Street on the 10th of April.8

Hick Lane Mill

Willans tells us that Sheards bought the shares of other partners in Hick Lane and added mill after mill, taking the first one down entirely and rebuilding it. Much of this seems to have happened in this Michael's time, with the Old Mill and Valley Mills in Sheard occupation.9

By this time the old jennies would have been replaced by better machinery in the mills, and power looms
would have been introduced, though still supplemented by out work on hand looms.

Sheard and Spedding continued to be listed in directories until in 1854 , the year before his brother George's death, the partnership was dissolved.10

In 1854 Michael Sheard purchased 3 closes of land at Healey from members of the Woodhead family of Gomersal. It is interesting that this transaction was made in his name and that of his fourth son, another Michael , described as land surveyor and just becoming established as an architect.
By 1857 Michael Sheard and family had moved into their new house at Healey, and at Dryfield House, an elegant residence set back from the road with a carriage drive, were able to live in some style. According to James Willans Eli Ibberson's drapery business later occupied Michael's former residence.9

On 1 January 1857 Michael Sheard withdrew from the business partnership with his three elder sons, beig replaced by his fourth son, George.10
In 1858 Michael Sheard was listed as a manufacturer and merchant, Dryfield House, Michael Sheard & Sons were listed as scribbling & fulling millers at Old and Valley Mills. and also an entry for woollen manufacturers says M.S. & Sons (Joseph and John) Residence given as Dryfield House.11

Valley Mills.

It isn't yet clear when Valley Mills was built, but whereas Hick Lane Mill has gone, and Hick Well consists largely of later buildings, it looks to me as though what survives of Valley Mill may be part of the original. The section with the tall blocked up window visible in my left hand photograph could, by comparison with other early mills, be where the engine was located. The other photo shows the building from the other side, where again this part shows as a projection. Beyond it the brickwork looks later; one would suppose there to have been once an adjacent chimney.

I do not know if it was Michael Sheard's mills Walter White visited in 1858 but he gives a good description of what would have been happening there at that time which can be read by clicking on his name.12
Michael Sheard made a will on 2 January 1861.13
In the census of 7 April 1861 he was listed as the head of household at Dryfield House, Healey, Batley, as a manufacturer, out of business. Adjacent entries give gardener William Kershaw and coachman Charles Oliver with families.14
He died on 23 June 1861 at Batley at age 63.
He was buried on 26 June 1861 at Batley ; with three children who died in infancy, Matilda, Edwin and David.15
