James Simpson I of Foxhill Bank, Oswaldtwistle who had made a large amount of money in the calico printing business retired from Foxhill Bank Printworks in 1830 and let the business to Thomas Coates & Co. of Pendleton. However by 1838 the business was back with the family and a partnership was formed called Simpson Rostron & Co. calico printers and appears as such in Slater’s Directory. The partnership consisted of Thomas Simpson (nephew of James Simpson I who is said to have returned from America to where his father, William Simpson, James Simpson I’s elder brother had emigrated), Lawrence Rostron (James Simpson I’s son-in-law), James Simpson Young, and William Gregory Langdon, the last of whom looked after the marketing end of the business in Manchester (Blackburn Standard 30 October 1844).

In 1840 Thomas Simpson of Foxhill Bank became the owner of the Broadfield Colliery in Oswaldtwistle. James Simpson Young joined him in this enterprise and the firm became known as Simpson and Young. It became one of the biggest employers in the district with a coal depot at Knuzden Brook and tramways from their collieries at Bank Moor to Knuzden and from Broadfield to the Moscow Mills of the Walmsley family and to the Foxhill Bank Print Works.

By the 1841 census we find James Simpson Young at New Brighton, Wallasey a fashionable seaside resort on the Wirral, in the company of Edward Phillips, Charles Buchanan (first cousin from America? He could be the son of Mary Simpson b.1781 who married William Buchanan of New York), Marion Young (probably his sister) and James Simpson (more likely to be his cousin James Simpson II, later first President of the Vegetarian Society than his father, James Simpson I, even though the latter is not at home at Foxhill Bank Hall in the Census). They are all described as being of independent means and no relationships are given in the census.

James Simpson I died at Foxhill Bank aged 71 in 1847 and left a will in which the legacies and annuities alone amounted to at least £110,000 besides the uncalculated balance of his estates which passed to his younger son, James II. James I’s sister Jane Young received £52 plus the income from all his property in Methven for life, and her son James Simpson Young received a legacy of £1,500 payable in 1859 (which was the same as his cousin Thomas Simpson).

Robert Shaw, who died on 28 August, 1978, aged 51 was a wonderfully versatile actor and a larger than life character off screen too.

He was compelling as a Bond villain, fearsome as a New York hoodlum, an Oscar nominee as the young King Henry VIII and a veteran of both the West End and Broadway stage.

Away from stage and screen, Mr Shaw was an accomplished writer of novels, plays and screenplays.

But it is for one role alone Mr Shaw will be forever remembered - the drunken, salt-licked, foul-mouthed, shark obsessed skipper Quint in Steven Spielberg’s cinema classic Jaws.

Robert Shaw was born in Westhoughton, Lancashire on 9 August 1927. He had three sisters and a brother and at the age of seven moved to Stromness, Orkney, where five years later his father Thomas, a doctor reportedly died of alcoholism.

He grew up in Cornwall and became a teacher in Saltburn, Yorkshire for a short time before heading south again to the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London .

Cutting his teeth with the Royal Shakespeare Company, he made his debut in 1949 before beginning his film career with an uncredited role in the Ealing Comedy The Lavender Hill Mob, two years later.

His early career saw him cast in many war films, of which The Dam Busters (1954) was the most famous.

In 1963 his became a household name when he played Donald ‘Red’ Grant, the SPECTRE spy intent on killing Sean Connery’s 007 in From Russia With Love. In the same year he played the troubled Aston in Harold Pinter's The Caretaker. In 1966 he won an Oscar nomination as young King Henry VIII in A Man for All Seasons.

Among his other notable successes were The Valiant (1962), Battle of the Bulge (1965), The Battle of Britain (1969), the Redford/Newman classic The Sting (1973), The Taking of Pelham One Two Three (1974), The Deep (1977) and Force 10 From Navarone (1978).

He had five published books, including The Hiding Place (1960) and The Man in the Glass Booth (1967) about the Nazi War criminal Adolph Eichman, which were both developed for the screen and the latter also became a Tony nominated Broadway play.

Arguably his best novel, however, was his second book published in 1961, The Sun Doctor, which won the Hawthornden Prize, one of the UK’s oldest literary awards.

Three times married, with nine children, Mr Shaw died of a heart attack in Tourmakeady, County Mayo, Ireland. His final film, Avalanche Express, which was in mid-production, was released the following year.

Real life in many ways mirrored Mr Shaw’s film career. His rough-hewn appearance lent itself to hard-case, hard-living characters. Like his alter ego Quint – voted at 28 in Premiere Magazine's 100 Greatest Movie characters of all time – he liked to drink and once admitted: “I drink too much. Will you tell me one great actor who doesn’t drink?”

Along with the many plaudits he achieved during his lamentably short, but action packed career, one more can be added to the lengthy and distinguished list - a pub in his home town named The Robert Shaw after his memory, something he would undoubtedly have approved of.

Wilfrid Greville Clouston was one of the first New Zealand air aces of the Second World War. He survived the Battle of Britain only to spend the majority of the war in a Japanese prisoner of war camp.

Born in Auckland on 15 January 1916, Clouston grew up in Wellington. He completed most of his schooling in the capital but spent his final year at Nelson College before starting work as an office clerk.

Clouston learnt to fly with the Wellington Aero Club at Rongotai. After gaining his pilot’s licence in 1935 he left New Zealand for Britain a year later to join the Royal Air Force (RAF). In June 1937, he was posted to No. 19 Squadron at Duxford, near Cambridge - the first RAF squadron to be equipped with the new Supermarine Spitfire fighter in August 1938.

Following the outbreak of war in September 1939 Clouston’s squadron was tasked with protecting allied shipping in the North Sea. These defensive patrols were largely uneventful and it wasn’t until the German invasion of the Low Countries and France in May 1940 that Clouston had his first taste of combat. With French and British forces in full retreat across the English Channel, No. 19 Squadron was shifted south from their Duxford base to cover the withdrawal of the encircled British Expeditionary Force (BEF) from Dunkirk. Over the next ten days the 24 year-old shot down four planes and claimed another two probable victories. With the remnants of the BEF successfully evacuated, 19 Squadron returned to Duxford. Clouston was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross (DFC) for his efforts during the Battle of France.

Clouston’s squadron entered the Battle of Britain in late August 1940. Over the next two months he destroyed three aircraft, had two probable victories and shared in another. Two of these victories were achieved on 9 September 1940 when Clouston’s patrol intercepted a formation of Messerschmitt Bf 109 fighters over southwest London. He describes the ensuing action:

[I] was about to attack when two crossed my sights so turned on them. The rear one emitted smoke after a short burst and then caught fire. Attacked the second firing the rest of my ammunition, saw my shots register and he went down apparently out of control.

In November 1940 Clouston was given command of the newly formed No. 258 Squadron. The majority of the squadron’s pilots were New Zealanders and the silver fern was adopted as the unit’s unofficial insignia. Based in the north of England, they were initially tasked with defending the city of Belfast and northern English ports before flying offensive sweeps over France.

In August 1941 he was appointed to command No. 488 (NZ) Squadron, which was being formed in New Zealand for service in the Far East. Clouston was already in Singapore when the squadron arrived from New Zealand in early October. He quickly set about bringing it up to operational standard - a difficult job given the inexperience of the pilots, shortage of tools and spare parts, and poor weather. On the ground Clouston’s mechanics and engineers were constantly overworked ensuring the squadron’s fleet of ancient Brewster Buffalo fighters remained airworthy.

The New Zealanders were still finding their feet when the Japanese landed in Malaya on 8 December 1941. Five weeks later No. 488 Squadron took part in its first major operation, with its first combat encounter nine days later. Clouston’s pilots soon discovered their Buffalos were no match for the more manoeuvrable Japanese fighter planes. Outnumbered and facing well-trained Japanese pilots, the Allied squadrons defending Singapore suffered heavy losses. By the end of January, No. 488 Squadron had only two serviceable planes left.

With the situation in the air looking increasingly hopeless Clouston was posted to RAF Headquarters in Singapore, handing over the squadron to another Battle of Britain veteran, Flight Lieutenant John Mackenzie - grandson of former New Zealand Prime Minister Sir Thomas Mackenzie. After the island fell to the Japanese Clouston was taken prisoner off the coast of Sumatra and spent the rest of the war in captivity.

Clouston remained in the RAF until his retirement in 1957, by which time he had attained the rank of Wing Commander. He returned to New Zealand to take up farming and died in Waipukurau in 1980 at the age of 64.

My oldest brother, Alexander, died the 18th of July 1829 at the age of 17 years. My youngest brother, William, died in infancy, the 30th of August 1823. My father, David Ririe, died the 20th of August 1830 at the age of 52 years. In the month of November, following my father's death, my mother moved about three miles east in the same parish. When I was five years old, I was sent to school. When I was eleven, I was sent to service, in the summer seasons, on the agriculture line. I was taken home in winters to school until I was thirteen years old. I then went to the milling of wheat and continued two and a half years.

My mother died on the 1st of May 1845 in the 56th year of her age.

[James joined the Mormon church, did missionary work, had a disagreement with one of his leaders and was excommunicated. A higher up authority heard his side of the story and rebaptized him.]

Ten Pound Company (Cost of Immigration)
By this time, I was making at the average of 11 shillings per week. I had commenced to save up to get away to the Valley. On the 24th of January 1852, I had put into the bank, two pounds and ten shillings as a commencement. I still continued to save all I could. On the 26th of January I agreed with President McNaughton to go to the Valley, and about the first of February 1852 gave President McNaughton 6 pounds to be my deposit money and to pay for my outfit on the plains in the Ten Pound Company.

At that time only eleven made their way to Utah: Mrs. Mitchell and three daughters, Brother Robb and wife, Brother Brown and wife, Brother Noble and wife and myself. On the 24th of January 1853 I drew from the bank my money, 17 pounds, and on the 8th of February I left work to go. I left Aberdeen on the 12 of February 1853. Before leaving, I took farewell of my friends and relatives. Some of them were very opposed, also some of them in the Church. I also promised to do my best to take out Helen Mitchel the following season. Leaving Scotland, 1853
