George Sheard was born on 22 April 1901 at Halifax.1 He was the son of Will Sheard and Mary Jane Wilson.
In the census of 2 April 1911 he was listed as at school, the son of Will Sheard at 27 Orchard Street, Savile Town, Dewsbury.2
George Sheard was educated at the Wheelwright Grammar School, Dewsbury, and then at the Bradford Textile Institute.
He was employed by Henry Hamer & Sons of Ravensthorpe, then primarily a manufacturer of men's overcoatings.
He married Marjorie Senogles on 10 March 1931 at Menai Bridge, Anglesey.3,1

Following their marriage George and Marjorie sailed for Canada, where George had been assigned by Hamers to establish a shoddy-based woollen mill in St. Georges de Beauce, Quebec. The objective was to retain Canadian clients otherwise lost by Canada's imposition of restrictive tariffs.1
In 1937 George bought a country mill in Way’s Mills, Québec, which became Geo. Sheard Fabrics Limited. It manufactured meltons and friezes, and much of it burned down in March, 1942. Due to the fact that the firm was working entirely on service uniforms and blankets during the War, it received the necessary permits to purchase new equipment, and started afresh in Coaticook, Québec from whence it is still operating.1

George Sheard and his son Douglas Sheard visited Batley millowner Theodore Cooke Taylor in Batley shortly after his hundredth birthday.1
Mr. Taylor told George that he had changed his Daimler car a short time before, having had the previous one, with the same chauffeur, for the last 30 years. His driver was now in his 70’s. As they were driving back on the first evening after having picked up the new car, he asked the driver how he liked it.
“Well,” he grumbled, “This….. was not as before, and that….. doesn’t work so well.” “Anyway,” he said, “If it lasts as long as the last one, we shan’t grumble.”
At the telling of this to George, Mr. Taylor burst into laughter.1

In 1964 George Sheard was George's businesss changed its direction, and is now manufacturing exclusive fabrics for commercial upholstery applications, (offices, public buildings, hotels, etc.).1
He died on 28 April 1985 at Coaticook, Quebec, Canada, at age 84.1

Douglas Sheard was born on 27 April 1932 at Québec City, Canada.1 He is the son of George Sheard and Marjorie Senogles. Douglas Sheard was educated at Bishop’s College School, Lennoxville, Québec, then Phillips Exeter Academy, in Exeter, New Hampshire, followed by Harvard University, Cambridge, Mass., then Leeds University.

Douglas Sheard and his father George Sheard visited Theodore Cooke Taylor in Batley shortly after his hundredth birthday.1 Theodore Cooke Taylor told Douglas that he had, as a very young man, been in partnership with his great grandfather William Sheard and invested in his enterprise.1

On graduation Douglas Sheard started working for George Sheard Fabrics Ltd., the firm established by his father.
He married Gönen Piyale, daughter of Tahsin Piyale, on 2 May 1957 at Istanbul The couple were to have three children.1
On his retirement in 1994 Douglas Sheard passed the business on to two of his children.1
Sadly Gönen died in 2005 after a long and happy marriage, but on 25 August 2007 Douglas married his charming second wife.

It was in part the slightly poignant sense of being the one in my own line who had moved away and had no connection with the textile trade after so many generations in wool in Yorkshire that prompted my work in family history. Thus I have been especially delighted to hear of Sheards still making cloth, with an impressively updated version of those ancient skills.
