Calderdale F.H.S – Stories of the Waterhouse Family

David Glover will be giving a talk to the Calderdale Family History Society on Thursday 28 June, 7:30pm-9:30pm at The Shibden Room of North Bridge Leisure Centre, HX3 6TE.

In this fascinating talk, David Glover outlines the many interesting characters of the Waterhouse family. This ranges from the 15th century, to the family owning Well Head Mansion a century ago.

Along the way you will hear about the owners of Shibden Hall:

  • Nathaniel “The Great Benefactor of Halifax”;
  • John the noted 19th century scientist and inventor;
  • and Catherine, the very last of the line. She mysteriously separated from her husband, but endowed several local churches.
