    About the Sampler from Nicola Parkman:

    "Margaret is one of a pair of sister samplers and was stitched in 1854. Margaret finished her sampler at the age of 10 years in 1854 at Hoghton School. Her sister Charlotte finished her sampler in 1860. Using the clues that the two sisters recorded in cross stitches, we were able to locate the girls in family history records.

    Margaret was born on December 23, 1843 and Charlotte in 1848. Their parents were Thomas Entwistle, a farmer and his wife Charlotte (née Whitehead). There were six children born to the couple between 1841 and 1848. Their mother certainly had her hands full!

    When Thomas and Charlotte (senior) married on December 23, 1839 in St James, Thomas was an agricultural labourer. In the 1851 census return, Thomas farmed 36 acres at Top o’th Lane in Brindle, Lancashire. The school at Hoghton was some 2.5 miles from the farm.

    The Entwistle family prospered and in the 1861 census return, Thomas had a holding of some 115 acres at Top o’th Lane. Thomas was appointed a governor of the Brindle Workhouse in the November of 1866. We have also found a reference to Thomas holding the positions of market inspector and trustee of the Shuttlingfields Charity and funds for the poor. He was a respected member of the community."
