by me William Midgley.
Thomas' first marriage to Hannah Smedley was 10 June 1832. at St Mary the Virgin parish church Eccles , Lancashire; which is on the south west outskirts of Manchester possibly this was Hannah's home parish. One witness was John Chatterton most probably Thomas' brother.See Original marriage cert
Thomas is listed as a publican (Inn Keeper) of The Bulls Head from 1835 to 1838
The 1841 census shows him as a Victualar in Dob Lane Failsworth and in 1847, and Newton in 1855
The Inn appears to have been situated just of the Main Manchester to Oldham turnpike some 4 miles NE of Manchester, between the turnpike and the Rochdale Canal.
In 1849 Thomas sold the Inn
Bulls Head has the oldest alehouse licence in Failsworth that can be traced back to 1731.
In 1734 a Turnpike Act was passed to improve the road from Manchester to Austerlands on the Yorkshire border, via Failsworth, Hollins and Oldham.
This increased the prospect of having horse-drawn vehicles passing by and their drivers and passengers coming in for refreshments.
By the 1830's there was a decline of the stage coach and the appearance of the first local omnibuses. These ran to Manchester from Bulls Head every day at 10:00am, noon, 5:30pm, 7:15pm and 8:30pm, and the service was well established by 1836.
