John Land is my great great grandfather - Maggie Land Blanck
Birth, 1818, Leeds
John Land, the son of Charles Lewis Land and Anne Land of Leeds, was born on May 5, 1818 and baptized on July 12, 1818 at Queen Street Chapel, Leeds. (Queen Street Chapel Records LDS microfilm 0828139).
Queens Street Chapel was a congregational parish. Congregationalists were also called non-conformist or dissenters.
Anne Land was the former Anne Dinsdell.
Occupations of John Land and his father, Charles Land
On almost every documents that included an occupation John Land and his father, Charles Land, were listed as "cloth drawers".
I have found two exceptions for John Land:
Throughout most of his life John Land was listed as a "cloth drawer" as was his father, Charles, before him.
I have found several definitions for "drawing" and "cloth drawer".
"finishing or dressing the cloth is the next and last process of importance: it may be considered as including burling and drawing"Although Judd described most of the steps and occupations in the process of making woolen cloth and shoddy, he never described the process of "drawing". He did say that there were 70 "drawers" in Batley in 1858 and that they made 30 shillings a week. This was one of the highest paid jobs connected with the shoddy business that Judd listed.
In a further attempt to determine exactly what a cloth drawer did I wrote to Museums and Libraries in England including Leeds Local Studies, The Bradford Industrial Museum, the Armley Mill Museum: They seem to think that a clother drawer worked in the finishing process:
"I'm afraid I'm not able to give as much time to your enquiry as I'd like but I would err towards your ancestors working in finishing. I suspect if they were drawing on the loom at an earlier stage they would be referred to as woollen or worsted drawers as the cloth hadn't been made yet. Finishing workers also tend to get paid highly, especially those who are burling and mending - sadly most of our text books are technical and ignore the manual processes quite often but I would suggest that as your ancestors were also dressers then drawer as mender is probably the most likely definition."Volume II of "The Civil, Ecclesiastical, Literary, Commercial and Miscellaneous History of Leeds, Bradford, Wakefield, Dewsbury, Otley and the District within Ten Miles of Leeds" by Edward Parsons (1834) which examines the effect of industrial working conditions on public health states:
"Cloth-drawers, men who with needles draw up minute holes or repair injuries in the cloth, are kept almost all day with the spine curved, and the abdomen consequently compressed. In lettering, especially, the men are obliged to lean forward. Cloth-drawers sometimes sit, with short intervals only for meals, from five in the morning till eight at night. The air they breathe is often too confined; and occasionally, when working low-priced goods, they are annoyed with the dust from fullers' earth. Cloth-drawers are generally delicate, short-breathed, and subject especially to stomach complaints and headache. These indeed we found to affect in a greater or less degree more than one-half the men we examined. The eyes frequently become inflamed, particularly in drawing scarlet. No cloth-drawers live in health to a great age. Cloth- drawers earn high wages, and, though occasionally required to work closely and for an improper period, they have frequent intervals in which not Half the day is devoted to labour.In June 2011 I found THE CLOTH DRAWERS CRAFT in a Google Book from 1908 that gives a lenghty discription of the "art" of cloth drawing with illustrations.
This is about the only branch of textile finishing for which there is no literature. Articles more or less comprehensive have been written on every process with the exception of the drawer's art, and text books ignore it altogether. As it is a handicraft which requires a long apprenticeship and skill in manipulation, recipes and formulae cannot be given.
A Cloth Drawer was also know as a Fine Drawer". In speaking of impurities and foreign particles in the fleece:
If twisted into the thread and wrought with the substance of the cloth they become the object of the burler's notice, who leaves, for every particle which is extracted, a hole in the piece to be repaired at the fulling mill, or by the nicer operation of the fine drawer.Another reference to the drawer's occupation as "fine drawer":
The cloth might probably at this stage be examined by the fine drawer and finishing burler, after which" it is pressed and steamed."It was also known as "Reentering", "rent mending", "invisible mending" and "finishing".
John Land was listed in the 1842 Leeds Directory as a Cloth Dresser.
Cloth Dressers were woolen workers who cropped the nap of the cloth after it was fulled.
This was one of the last steps in the process and it is quite possible that the Lands were both dressing and "drawing" the cloth.
"Cloth-dressers or Croppers, working at the shears, seem to be little injured by their employment; they are, however, too much crowded, and hence they occasionally suffer from disorders of the stomach. Affections, termed rheumatic, are also rather prevalent. We found few cloth-dressers aged; indeed in one large establishment they were almost all lads. This, however, results chiefly from the introduction of, "cutters" or the dressing cloth by machinery, in which old men are rarely employed. By the confinement, indeed, rather than by the nature of the occupation, is health affected."Cloth Draper
John Land was listed as a cloth drapper at this second marriage in 1857. I believe that a "cloth draper" was a clothier or woolen cloth maker.
The Lands as Cloth Drawers
A 1822 Gazetteer of York County does not have any listings for Charles Land. John was only 4 years old at the time. There were, in fact, no listings for Cloth Drawers under a heading of Cloth Drawers. But there were a number listings under individual names. There were categories for: Cloth Dressers, Cloth Friezers and Cloth Glossers listed in Leeds in 1822. Cloth dressers AKA as shearers and croppers cut the nap of the woven cloth. Friesers raise the nap on the cloth. Glossers smooth the cloth by dragging it over hot irons.
Neither John nor Charles Land were listed in the 1837 Gazetteer in Leeds. Again there was no separate listing under PROFESSIONS for Cloth Drawers, although there were individuals listed as such.
Class, sect, and party: the making of the British middle class: Leeds, 1820 to 1850 By Robert John Morris states that there were 85 cloth drawers in Leeds in the 1834 Trade directory. I do not know if this included Charles Land.
John Land was listed as a cloth dresser at Back Nile Street in the 1842 Leeds Directory.
In the 1853 Leeds Directory there was no listing for Cloth Drawers.
I believe that cloth drawers were master tradesmen who served a seven year apprenticeship. I have not determined if they worked on their own premises or if they worked in the mills. Since there did not seem to be a need for advertisement in the trade gazetteers, I would assume that they worked in the mills.
I also have the impression that cloth drawers may have worked in a factory setting as "overlookers" of a group of burlers who were mostly females.
In the USA fine drawers worked at the fulling mill.
It appears that the cloth drawer worked closely with the cloth dressers. And he may have worked in the cloth dressers shop.
John Land was literate enough to sign his name at the times of his marriages and the births of his children. His first wife, Mary Dyson, signed with her mark, indicating that she could not write. His second wife, Lydia Law, was literate enough to sign her name at the time of her marriage and the births of several of her children.
Note: There were people who could read but could not write.
The Marriage of John Land and Mary Dyson, 1840 Leeds
John Land, full age, bachelor, clothdrawer, of Holbeck, son of Charles Lewis Land, clothdrawer, and Mary Dyson, full age, spinster, Bell Street, daughter of Samuel Dyson, cloth dresser were married in the parish church of Leeds November 11, 1840. (Civil marriage record)
The copy of the civil registration does not include the signatures but indicates that John Land signed his own name and Mary Dyson signed with her mark. The witnesses were Thomas Hoyle and R. H. Pickard.
In July 2011 (thanks to Ancestry.com) I was able to obtain a copy of the Parish Record.
The 1851 census indicates that Mary was the daughter of Hannah Dyson and that she was born in Huddersfield, Yorkshire circa 1820. The marriage certificate indicates that she was the daughter of Samuel Dyson, cloth dresser.
Samuel and Hannah Dyson of Huddersfield had:
Samuel Dyson married Hannah Hoyle, August 13, 1804, St Peter's Huddersfield. Both made their mark.
Note: Thomas Hoyle was one of the witnesses at the marriage of John Land and Mary Dyson,

The last real record I have for her was in the 1871 census with her brother, Sam.
However: It is possible that Elizabeth Land also immigrated to Philadelphia. The Records for St Timothy's Parish in the Roxborough section of Philadelphia have a very limited number of entries for the name Land. This include:

Death: Charles L Land birth c 1853 death March quarter 1942 Keighley FreeBMD
More on the Shuttleworths: In October 2011 Ian wrote that Charles Lewis Land was the second husband of Elenore Shuttleworth (nee Swire).
Her first husband was Harry Shuttleworth, and there were four children: Ada Winifred, George Henry, Sarah Elizabeth Shuttleworth, and John Swire. The family story/myth was that Sarah & Harry went to Cape Colony as missionaries, had a daughter out there, and that Sarah & daughter (Sarah Elizabeth Shuttleworth) returned without Harry & he was never seen again.FIND A GREAVE (added by W Sutherland, July 2011) contains a picture of the tombstone of Harry Shuttleworth. Which reads:
In Loving Memory
Later Lands in Keighley:
You may be interested to know that my mother's cleaning lady was "Mrs. Stell", and she lived on Fell Lane. There was also a mill on the North Beck (Stell's Mill), which was burned down around 1950. One of my school-friends married a Jean Land, so there were still Stells and Lands in Keighley in the 1950's-60's.
Birth: James Dunford Land was a name used in at least three generations of Lands. Charles Land and Elizabeth Dunford had a son named James and a son named Charles Lewis Land. Charles Lewis Land was the father of John (1818) who named his sons, James Dunford Land (1855).
Civil Record: James Dunford Land, the son of John Land, cloth drawer, and Mary Land, formerly Dyson, was born March 8, 1855, Carlinghow, Batley. The birth was reported by Mary Land, mother, who signed with her mark.

Move from Leeds to Wakefield and then to Batley
As indicated by the places and dates of births of Charles in Leeds in 1845 and William in Wakefield in 1847, the lands moved from Leeds to Wakefield between those dates.
Why did they make this move at this time? John Land's work was connected to the woolen industry. In fact, woolen manufacturing in Wakefield was waning in the mid 1800s while it was rising in other towns in the district, particuarly in Leeds.
Wakefield, considered as a clothing town, has fallen from its once high position: it has been superseded by other towns. Leeds, Halifax, and Wakefield were once the three great centres: the two former still retain their eminence; while Wakefield has given way, and Bradford and Huddersfield have risen to distinction. In Leland's time we are told that " Wakefield standeth now al by clothying;" and at a later period woollen cloth, stuff goods, and worsted yarn were the main products of the place; but now, although there are still woollen and stuff manufacturers in the town, the number of them bears but a small proportion to those in the other towns we have named. The wool-market, too, is gradually leaving Wakefield for Bradford. Wakefield, on the other hand, has greatly risen as an emporium for the com and malt trade, and also as a cattle and sheep market; so that the prosperity of the town has not declined, it has merely taken a different direction.
As indicated by the places and dates of births for Charles Lewis Land in Wakefield in 1852 and James Dunford Land in Batley in 1855, John Land and his family moved to Batley between those dates.

Directory Listings for John Land
John Land was not listed in Batley in the 1857 or 1863 Directory of Leeds. Batley was not included in the 1872 Directory of Leeds.
Death of Mary Dyson Land
Church Record: Mary Land of Havercroft, age 38, was buried in Batley parish March 21, 1857 (LDS film #1542210).
Civil Record: Mary Land, wife of John Land, cloth drawer, died March 19, 1857, of consumption (certified), the death was reported by John Land, present at the death, King Street, Batley.
Marriage of John Land and Lydia Law★, November 7, 1857, Birstall
Not quite eight months after Mary's death John Land married Lydia Law. John was about 16 years older than Lydia and had six children still living from his first marriage: John age 16, Samuel, age 15, William, age 9, Elizabeth Ann, age 8, Charles Lewis, age 4, and James Dunford, age 2. Lydia was 22 years old. Only 6 years older than John Land, Junior. One can easily see the advantage to John of this marriage. What was the advantage to Lydia?

Children of John Land and Lydia Law
Lydia Law and John Land had:
1861 Census Batley
John Land and family were listed at Wheats Croft Batley in the 1861 see Lands in the Censuses
Changes in the Naming Pattern for the Land Family
With the exception of Law who was named for Lydia's maiden name, none of the children of John Land and Lydia Law were given names that appeared in the records up to that time.
This represents a big break in the naming pattern in the Land family, who tended to name their children after their ancesters. It should be noted that family names were used with the children of the first marriage. It is only with the second set of children that new names enter the name pool. It is clear that new names were introduced into the family around the time of many other social changes. Some of these new names were used by several other branches and/or generations:
Frederick, Edna and Herbert were introduced in the next generation:
1871 Census Batley
John Land and family were listed at Wood Wele Batley in the 1871 see Lands in the Censuses
Death of John Land
John Land, age 59, cloth drawer, died on October 26, 1877 at Nussey Mill Yard, Batley, cause of death "probably apoplexy", reported by Lydia Land widow of the deceased, present at the death, Nussey Mill Yard, Batley (Civil Record)
LDS microfilm 1482951 contains the death records for Batley parish cemetery from 1867 to 1967. John Land's burial was not listed.
According to Webster apoplexy is,
"A sudden and total loss of movement and consciousness, commonly called 'a stroke', due to rupture or clotting of one of the blood vessels in the brain"
Repercussions of the death John Land
When John died in 1877 the children of his first marriage were all adults. The eight children from the second marriage ranged in age from 19 to 4 years old: Law born 1858, Albert born 1861, Percy born 1862, Arthur born 1864, Harry born in 1867, Adelaide born 1868, Poly born 1871 and Walter born 1873.
How did Lydia manage?
In the 1881 census Lydia was listed without an occupation. Albert and Percy, 20 and 18, were piecer in a woolen mill. Arthur, 16, was a cloth finisher and Harry, 14 was a mechanic spinning machine. There appears to have been four children supporting the family.
