Thomas Beeley of Pole Bank.
David Barlow has sent us this interesting document....
"Thought this may be of interest to Hydonians...
Couple of documents highlighting Pole Banks history and the fragmentation of the Thomas Beeley Estate following his death in 1908 and subsequent auction in 1912 after which I believe Pole Bank Hall was then leased for 7 years to Thomas Kerfoot.
The Hall and Grounds were purchased in 1920 by George Frederick Byrom for £4200. George Byrom died in 1942 and in 1946 in accordance with his will and wishes Pole Bank Hall and Grounds were bequeathed to the Corporation of Hyde for the use and recreation of the general public.
This information is accurate to my knowledge however I stand to be corrected through your comments section!!"
Many Thanks, David. :)
