Michael Spedding was born on 30 July 1786 at Batley.1 He was the son of Charles Spedding and Mary Ellis. Michael Spedding was baptized on 6 August 1786 at Parish Church, Batley.1
He married Hannah Ineson, daughter of George Ineson and Alice Taylor, on 14 December 1806 at Parish Church, Batley.1

Hick Lane Mill

Michael Spedding and Michael Sheard were two of those mentioned in the fourth part of a deed as in occupation of "that large and commodious scribbling and fulling mill lately erected" ------- this on a piece of land near Rouse Mill , and mentioning appurtenances and rights to draw water from Wooler Beck to work a steam engine or engines.
This must refer to Hick Lane Mill.
John Whitaker was said to have been apprenticed to later himself in business as a manufacturer and when that venture hit hard times a rag merchant, was said to have been apprenticed to Michael Spedding.2
In 1837 the firm of Sheard and Spedding was one of a number of local firms fined for offences against the Factory Acts.

From around 1837 Michael Spedding was in a partnership with Joseph Parker ,Phineas Fox and James Hall and Leeds cloth merchant Matthew Johnson. The partnership, styled Hall, Johnson, Spedding & Co are said to have been in business at Purlwell Mill.3
He was listed as the head of household in the 6 June 1841 census at New Road Side, Havercroft, Batley, as a wool manufacturer. Martha Ineson, 15, is listed as a servant.4

The Plug Riots of 1842

Michael Spedding was reported to have boasted, when the boiler tappers made their appearance at Hick Lane boiler house
"If I had had a good ash plant I could have driven them all away"
]In connection with the same event, a mother said,
"If my lad had not gone to the mill that morning things would have been different".
In those days the firing place had little protection, and a warm fire was apt to draw men who had more zeal for talk than work. This young lad-this mother's son- was there when the tappers came. They had considerable difficulty in carrying out their designs, and it was not accomplished until this young lad not only showed them how to do it, but actually did it for them. That lad and his mother were years before they saw each others faces. Some thirty years after, when walking down Hick Lane with him, he referred to this episode, and pointing across, said, "That is the mill whose boiler I tapt."
Men wondered how he had got away. His version was; "I got to a stream of water and laid me down in it, with only my face clear; there I lay for hours"

The same article tells us that Michael Spedding was the chief Magistrate for the area at the time.3
He married Hannah Butterworth, daughter of Thomas Butterworth, on 5 January 1844 at Batley.1
In the census of 30 March 1851 he was listed as the head of household at New Road, Batley, as a wool manufacturer and merchant.5

Charts
Ancestry of Vivien Eley Tomlinson
Robert Spedding was born circa 1708.
Robert Spedding may have married Mary Parker in 1733 A marriage bond for that year permits a wedding between the two in Batley or Dewsbury on the 4th of September. I have found no such marriage, but there are no marriages for that month recorded in Batley, and this could be an omission.
In 1751 Robert Spedding was parish constable, the year after John Spedding whose age was such that the two could have been brothers.1
(A John married Susannah Healey in Batley on the 30th October 1729).
In 1752 Robert Spedding signed an attempt to revive the workhouse, as one of the chief freeholders and leaseholders.1 In 1756 a valuation shows Robert Spedding to have a house and 25 acres. John had 6 acres, other houses valued at £2.00.1
He died in September 1773 at Batley. He was buried on 22 September 1773 at Batley.2
