Uncle Robin DELVES says that his father Fred lost his driving license through drink-driving in 1949, the same year as his mother's death. He will have been charged through the "1930 Road Traffic Act" where it was an offence to drive, attempt to drive or be in charge of a motor vehicle on a road or any other public place while being "under the influence of drink or a drug to such an extent as to be incapable of having proper control of the vehicle."
This was the start of a family tradition!

When they burnt the chicken shed down
During the war John, Robin & Dick used to kick about with four local lads from Denholme, their names were Brian Battersby, George Feather, Morris Metcalf and Hogan. The lads used to steal Dunhill Sunripe fags from behind the counter at the Mrs Holgate's Store by Foster's Mill in Denholme. The old lady, who owned the store, wore wooden clogs. The technique for the skullduggery was to ask her for a dandelion & burdock which she kept cool in the cellar. Her footsteps could clearly be heard as she descended down, and back up out and in that time the cigarettes were raided. Their favourite smoking venue was the chicken shed at Bracken Hill.
Phoebe heard a crackling sound while she was in the sitting room and thought the Germans were invading, looking outside she saw flames coming out of the chicken shed. Denholme fire brigade were called and couldn't find their driver so three of them walked three-quarters of a mile up the hill carrying the hose. Unfortunately, there was only a trickle when they plugged the hose into the back-yard fire hydrant causing one firemen to exclaim "Eee by gum, I could piss better than this!"
As Fred was a Major in the 'Home Guard' five engines eventually turned up to put out the fire. Eight hens survived from the flock of eleven, and the next day the three brothers were lined up in the sitting room by policeman and all was confessed. They were gated for several weeks.
Fred bought a new chicken shed which was taken with them when they moved to Heathfield in 1951. The new chicken shed was later to be the perfect location for Dick to propose to B in 1963!

LIved there between 1936 - 1951.

Fred & Phoebe did not own Bracken Hill it had previously been Mr Foster's house who was the owner of the Mill. In 1939 Fred bought Ballabooye Farm, St. Germains on the Isle of Man, so if the Germans invaded they would be able to feed themselves. They had family holidays there during the war and saw detainees behind fences. Fred sold the farm in 1964 as none of his sons were interested, he used the money to pay off the mortgage on Heathfield, which cost about £4,000 in 1964. During the war Fred was Major in the Home Guard and frequently defended The Flappit in Denholme. The main concern of the Denholme Home Guard was that the Germans would invade by parachuting onto the moors.

During the war the Fosters and Fred Delves were the only ones in Denholme with cars.

John, Robin and dick called Mary HESELTON 'Aunt Bezel'. Aunt Bezel used to hang around Denholme during and after the war much to Phoebe's irritation.
Aunt Mary HESELTON was 4th in command in the YWCA (Young Women Christian Association) at the end of the war.

Denholme Mill was owned by W+H FOSTER & Sons. By the time this photo was taken FW was probably Managing Director.
Fred's cousin Jim ARMISTEAD was influential in getting FW DELVES job at F+H Foster Ltd as the FOSTER's and ARMISTEAD's were family friends.
Jim ARMISTEAD was chairman of the West Riding County Council, he was a solicitor and one of his clients was W+H FOSTER Ltd. The ARMISTEAD family owned property in Bradford and Uncle Robin believes W+H FOSTERS rented some offices from them which were situated next to the Bradford Wool Exchange.
FW DELVES was an apprentice salesman to Herbert ROBERTSHAW, who died soon after so FW drafted in at age of 23 yrs in 1923 to top salesman.

1938
Wool came in through the furthest distant large door on the left. It was washed and combed and stored in the left building as it worked its way up through the floors. It was taken across the bridge and it was spun as it worked its way down the building on the right. It arrived on the ground floor as 'tops' and then was taken across to the weaving sheds.
In the weaving mill the threads were weaved in differant ways to make 'Wefts' or Warps'. It finally finished as 'Worstead', used to tailor Gabardine.
Dickie thinks the car at the back was Mr COOPERS, the Mills' designer.
The Mill packed up in 1964, the orders had dried up as Gabardine was no longer in fashion.

The petitioner was Mary and she lived at West End, Long Preston. The respondent was Allison he lived at 20, Wood View Terrace, Manningham, Bradford.
The petition of Mary HESELTON for the dissolution of marriage was because the "respondent had frequently committed adultery with Mrs Helen FITZMAURICE."
It was awkward for Fred to meet Allison socially after Mary & Allison were divorced.

DEATH OF MRS. DELVES
The death of Mrs. Delves, widow of Mr. Thomas Hirst Delves, took place at her residence, "Lochinvar" on Saturday evening as the result of a seizure. She passed away without regaining consciousness.
By her death, a familiar figure has been removed from a village in which she was born and lived all her life. Of a genial, quiet disposition, she was very highly respected. She took an interest in the concerns of the village, and was always ready and willing to take her share in promoting any worthy object. She was a devoted mother.

Danny DELVES from Jacksonville, Florida writes:-
The 5 button "collar down" tunic in this photo with mustache was British made and issued when the original tunics wore out.
The collar and hat badge show the "Canadian Machine Gun Corps" insignia. The Canadian Machine Gun Corps were formed in France in 1917.
The hat was a unique "campaign hat" made by Stetson, issued to the Canadian 19th Alberta Dragoons and kept by the same regional parts of the Canadian Corps Cavalry Regiment, the style of the 4 pointed "crimp" on the top is called the "Montana crease."

INTERESTING MARRIAGE. - On Wednesday morning, at the Baptist Chapel; Miss Mary Armistead, daughter of Mr and Mrs Thos. Armistead was married to Mr Edward Delves, Liverpool, Youngest son of the late Mr George Delves, of Longpreston.
The bride was escorted by her brother, Mr Wm. Armistead, and attended by her cousin Miss Isabella Armistead, and Miss Delves, sister of the bridegroom.
Mr Bozmin, of Liverpool, acted as best man.

The chapel was made brighter by flowers and plants, and nearly every young lady in the place was present.
The dresses of the guests were of various shades and patterns, making altogether a very pretty scene. Eight little girls stood near the entrance with baskets of flowers.
The ceremony was performed by the minister, the Rev J. Davis.
The bride's dress was of pearl grey cashmere and silk, with hat of same shade rimmed with feathers to match. She carried a bouquet of orchids and other choice flowers.
Miss J. Armistead's dress was of grey blue cloth, and Miss Delves's of crushed rose cordroy, and each carried bouquets.
At the close of the service Mr John Wrathall played a wedding march on the organ.

The bridal party then left the chapel, and were conveyed by carriages to the house of the bride's parents, where breakfast was served.
During the afternoon the happy pair left for Windermere to spend the honey-moon, after which they are going to reside at Egremont.
Amongst the numerous costly and handsome presents were two solid silver salt cellars and spoons in a case, from the chapel choir, of which Mrs Delves has for twelve years been a member. Her voice and able assistance will be much missed.

The wedding guests were:- Rev J. and Mrs Davis, Mrs Wrathall, Mrs John Armistead, Mr and Mrs T. Delves (Longpreston), Mrs Horrocks, Mrs and Miss Higgins (Manchester), Mr and Mrs R. Armistead (Bingley), Mr and Mrs John Wrathall (Skellands), Mrs R. Knowles (Malham), the Misses Simpson (Settle), Miss Entwhistle (Accrington), Miss Wrathall, Miss Brennand, the Misses E. and K.M. Wrathall, and Miss Cuckson (Longpreston).

The present owners of the farm did not know to whom the initials belonged but I reckon that they would have been put there by Thomas Cockshott when he moved with his wife Jane form Deepdale Head.

7th Aug 2014 Email from Anne BANKART nee ROCHE to Jeanne Marie INGRAM nee DELVES:
"Now Lochinvar-my grandfather, whom I never knew, knocked down a cottage beside the road into Long Preston to build a new house, in those days it was only a small country road but it soon became much busier and really the house is not at all well situated. I do not know if space further back was available to him, they certainly had a field behind the house which the children played in, which they called the Croft, perhaps it was only rented to him, it is a bit of a mystery. Certainly the house would have benefited from being further back, as it is it is right on top of the road and really rather ugly. However inside it is much nicer than you would imagine. It got its name from my Grandmother who was very fond of Walter Scott novels and she opened Ivanhoe at random saw the sentence "Now young Lochinvar rides out of the West" and so she chose the name! any -way that is the story I was told! I had never been in the house until about 20 years ago when we were visiting the church and got in conversation with a lady doing the flowers who said that the house had been converted into flats and that her sister lived in the bottom one, this is how I got in. I saw the kitchen and the sitting room of the original house and also a room that Grandfather had used as his office. My Mother had told me how her mother had had the staircase walls painted with a strong leaf green gloss paint in order to mitigate against children's dirty hands. The lady in the flat said that she had had a nightmare trying to get rid of this paint and in fact it was still there in the office now about 100 years old!
I suppose with the attics there may have been 21 rooms but I never heard anything about Arabian horses they certainly had horses to ride and a pony for the trap. My grandfather Delves who, as I understand was a Corn and Cattle Merchant was actually found dead in a barn by my mother, having shot himself (I think they tried to claim it was an accident) however this was at the time of the great depression and his finances were not too healthy indeed the family, including my father his son-in -law, all contributed to keep Grandma Delves in Lochinvar until her death, she died not long before I was born."

I write these few lines to you hoping to find you well as these leave me at present, hoping you will be good as to write me an answer to this letter and send me all particulars about my father and sister.
I am at present a soldier in the 75th Regiment of foot at Chatham and enlisted on the 6th day of April at York.
I did not mean to enlist but I was very drunk for which I am very sorry. But it can not be helped now. I do not like soldiering very well but I must make myself as comfortable as I can.
So no more at present from your Dear Nephew
