    John Sutcliffe of East-View was born at East-Lee, near Todmorden, 30th March 1825. He was the youngest son of John and Sally Sutcliffe the former of whom died in 1861, and when a boy, was sent to school at Cross-stone where he received a sound education which fitted him, when of sufficient age, for taking part in the business of a cotton spinner and manufacturer at Harley House Mills, in which his father and brother engaged – we believe at the same time – at the old cotton mill, Gauxholme, at Eastwood and at Harley House, Todmorden. For some time before his death he had been the sole surviving partner of the highly respected firm of W. & J. Sutcliffe

    Around 1855, he married Ellen Towne [1834-1889], daughter of Elizabeth (née Midgley) & Jacob Town. A family story says that Ellen was a lady-in-waiting to the Queen. Her family disapproved of the marriage and disowned her.

    He was a quarryman [1870].

    He was a well-known runner and took part in many races for prize money. By 1870, he was a semi-invalid, a consequence of his having been drugged before a race to prevent his winning.

    In May 1884, Thomas fell and broke his left hip at his home in Pennsylvania.

    Son of
    Richard Sutcliffe.

    Born in Wadsworth.

    Around 1855, he married Ellen Towne [1834-1889], daughter of Elizabeth (née Midgley) & Jacob Town. A family story says that Ellen was a lady-in-waiting to the Queen. Her family disapproved of the marriage and disowned her.

    Children:

    1. Emma [1857-1925] who was born 8 days after the family  arrived in America
    2. Ellen [1860-1933]

    In 1857, he and Ellen went to America with his brothers Henry, and Alfred. On 6th May 1857, they sailed on the Nonpareil for Philadelphia. The voyage lasted 6 weeks. They stayed for a time in the Philadelphia area, before the 3 brothers, and Thomas's family, moved to southwest Missouri [1860].

    A family story, tells how the brothers bought property – timberland – there, but were swindled out of it by unscrupulous speculators. Disillusioned, Alfred and Thomas returned to Pennsylvania, settling in Derry Township, but Henry remained in Missouri.

    He was a quarryman [1870].

    He was a well-known runner and took part in many races for prize money. By 1870, he was a semi-invalid, a consequence of his having been drugged before a race to prevent his winning. The drug also blinded him for a time, though he subsequently regained his sight. Brother Alfred helped Ellen look after Thomas's family. The family kept a boarding house for quarry workers.

    In May 1884, Thomas fell and broke his left hip at his home in Pennsylvania.

    He died August 1884

    Around 1855, he married Ellen Towne [1834-1889], daughter of Elizabeth (née Midgley) & Jacob Town. A family story says that Ellen was a lady-in-waiting to the Queen. Her family disapproved of the marriage and disowned her.

    In 1857, he and Ellen went to America with his brothers Henry, and Alfred. On 6th May 1857, they sailed on the Nonpareil for Philadelphia. The voyage lasted 6 weeks. They stayed for a time in the Philadelphia area, before the 3 brothers, and Thomas's family, moved to southwest Missouri [1860].

    A family story, tells how the brothers bought property – timberland – there, but were swindled out of it by unscrupulous speculators. Disillusioned, Alfred and Thomas returned to Pennsylvania, settling in Derry Township, but Henry remained in Missouri.

    He was a quarryman [1870].

    He was a well-known runner and took part in many races for prize money. By 1870, he was a semi-invalid, a consequence of his having been drugged before a race to prevent his winning.

    In May 1884, Thomas fell and broke his left hip at his home in Pennsylvania.

    He died August 1884
