Pilkington of Lancashire

The Pilkington family has its origins in the ancient township of Pilkington in the historic county of Lancashire, England. After about 1405 the family seat was Stand Old Hall, built to replace Old Hall in Pilkington; the new hall was built on high land overlooking Pilkington's medieval deer park. Stand Old Hall was replaced by Stand Hall to the south in 1515 after the Pilkingtons were dispossessed. Stand Old Hall became a barn, it is possible that Sir Thomas Pilkington had permission to “embattle” his manor house in 1470 building a stone tower. It was demolished in the early 1960s; the Pilkington name is taken from the manor of Pilkington in Lancashire. The Pilkington arms consist of an argent cross patonce voided gules; the Pilkington crest has a mower with his scythe and has a legend that an ancestor of the family, being sought at the time of the Norman Conquest, disguised himself as a mower and escaped. Ye Olde Man & Scythe Inn in Bolton derives its name from the reaper, its sign depicts a man using a scythe.

The Horwich Town crest incorporates the arms of the family within its design. The crest was first recorded on a seal from 1424. Throughout the county there were a number of branches of the family, including those from Rivington Hall, Rivington near Chorley and from Windle Hall near St Helens, founders of the Pilkington glass manufacturers; the first known is Alexander de Pilkington, his sons were Alexander de Pilkington and William de Pilkington and daughter Alice who were party to a Final Concord in 1202 regarding land in Rivington, where Alexander had inherited six Oxgang of land on which he paid Tallage, in the same year Alexander and Alice recovered from Thomas de Rawinton release of two and half Oxgangs with appurtenances in Rivington and Worsthorne, Alexander retained one and a half Oxgangs in Rivington and granted Thomas de Rawinton one Oxgang in Worsthrone and through legal action known as Assize of mort d'ancestor Henry de Pulkinton released his rights to Alexander of three Oxgangs in Rivington and Worsthorne.

Alexander had a possible third son named John, whose son Richard married Joan de Pennington in 1309. On the death of Roger c.1270 his son Alexander inherited titles and estates, he increased his land holding at Rivington, by buying up smaller holdings.

Roger's eldest son was named after his father, two younger sons were John, whose sons Thomas of Salford is recorded as paying lay subsidy, the third son held three burgesses in Salford and his youngest was Adam of Bolton and Sharples. Adam the younger son married Maud de Pendlebury, inheriting life interest in the Manors of Wickleswick and Pendlebury and land in Sharples on the death of his wife. Adam died without issue. Roger married three times, his first wife was daughter of Sir Gilbert Barton, with whom he had two sons William. He inherited a sixth of the Manor of Barton on the death of his wife in c.1295, his second wife was Alice, daughter of Sir Ralph de Otteby, they had one child Alexander. He received for his heirs the Manor of Otteby in 1295 by this marriage, his third wife was Margery Middleton, from whom he received lands in Great Lever in Bolton along with one third of a mill at Reddish. After his death his widow Margery remarried in 1323 to Sir Adam de Swillington and recovered estates that were seized by the King.

Roger had inherited the Manor of Pilkington. He was granted free warren of shooting rights at Pilkington, Unsworth, Crompton and Wolstenholme in 1291. Roger held the revision on the lands at Sharples in which his brother Adam had life interest. In 1312 he had settled the Manors of Pilkington and Cheetham on his son eldest son Roger, with provision that his younger son William would inherit should his eldest son Roger not have issue. In 1314 he served at the Battle of Bannockburn, he was captured during the Battle of Boroughbridge March 1322 and held at Tickhill Castle until July. He died in the same year.

7 Hammersmith Terrace

7 Hammersmith Terrace is an historic house in the London borough of Hammersmith and Fulham and the former home of English engraver and printer Emery Walker. Walker was an important figure in the English Arts and Crafts movement, a close friend of textile designer William Morris, who lived nearby. During his life, Walker furnished the home in an Arts and Crafts style, reflecting his friendships with Morris and others; the terraced house is a Grade II* listed building. It is four storeys tall, two windows wide with a Doric porch and built of brown brick with stucco to the ground floor. A blue plaque was erected by London County Council. After Walker's death, his daughter Dorothy sought to preserve the interior of the house, while adding further items from the Morris family; as a result of this preservation work, the house now offers a unique example of an Arts and Crafts interior, preserved as it was during the life of its former inhabitant. The property is under the ownership of the Emery Walker Trust, a registered charity, who describe it as "the last authentic Arts and Crafts interior in Britain".

The house may be visited through prebooked guided tours. Hammersmith Terrace is located off the A4 road, west of Hammersmith Broadway; the seventeen houses on Hammersmith Terrace were built c. 1755, offering a cheaper alternative to more central London housing. In the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, the Terrace was home to several artists and creative professionals, including the actor F. G. Stephens and calligrapher Edward Johnston. Emery Walker moved into number 7 with his wife and children in 1903, having spent the previous 24 years living at 3 Hammersmith Terrace; when Walker died in 1933, ownership of the property passed to his daughter Dorothy, who attempted to preserve the house and its contents. Upon her death in 1963, the house became the property of Dorothy's nurse-companion, Elizabeth de Hass, she followed Dorothy's attempts to preserve the house, which remained in a similar state to when Walker was alive. Before her death in 1999, de Hass approached experts at various institutions, with a view to setting up a trust to continue managing the property.

The Emery Walker Trust was established in February 1999, using money raised by selling print items in Walker's private collection. This Trust subsequently gained ownership of the house; the Emery Walker Trust opened the house to the public for the first time in April 2005. There were fears that financial constraints would prevent future openings, but the house offers prebooked guided tours to individuals and groups each summer since; the house has a blue plaque to commemorate the life of its former resident. The house has an Arts and Crafts interior that has changed little since Walker resided at the property, owing to the preservation work of his daughter and her nurse-companion. In particular, the house and contents bear witness to Walker's friendship with the textile designer William Morris, who lived nearby. Walker and Morris became friends after Walker had first moved to Hammersmith Terrace, the relationship between the families continued after Morris's death, with frequent visits to each other's homes.

Morris's daughter May contributed several items to the Walker household after her father's death in 1896, whether given to Emery himself or to his daughter Dorothy when she inherited the property. The linoleum in the entrance-way was a Morris design, is the only known example of a Morris linoleum still in its original domestic setting; the property features patterned wall-hangings and a blue flatweave rug from the Morris household, the latter bought by Dorothy at a house contents sale in 1939. There are a few personal items belonging to Morris, including his spectacles and a lock of his hair. Other items within the house came from individuals connected with the Arts and Crafts movement; when the architect Philip Webb died, Walker inherited all of his possessions, including items of furniture that are still in the property. The drawing room of the house contains a secretaire designed by Ernest Barnsley; the house's inventory includes documents, such as an original proof of The Earthly Paradise by Morris and letters from Rudyard Kipling, a teapot belonging to Dante Gabriel Rossetti.

Miscellaneous personal possessions of Walker's remain in the house, including souvenirs from his voyages abroad, his 1933 National Trust membership card. Artworks include two oil paintings by Samuel Butler, better known as a novelist, of Soglio and Westminster School. Official website BBC Radio 4 programme on the house, broadcast 28 January 2005
