Narrative and Notes

Henry ARCHIBALD was born in or near Skipton, Yorkshire in 1804.

Apparently he moved to Blackburn and became a cotton weaver. He married a Blackburn girl, Sarah and had at least five children.

In 1826, when aged 24, an appeal to a removal order concerning him, his wife and their child Mary was heard. The order was originally made by two justices of the peace on behalf of the county of Lancaster for the removal of Henry, his wife Sarah and daughter Mary 'poor persons' out of the township of Blackburn and into the township of Askridd [presumably Askrigg]. The appeal, made by the inhabitants of Askrigg, failed and the original order was ratified and confirmed

The order to remove the family was confirmed executed by Thos Ratcliffe on 10 Jul 1826. Despite this order the family appears not to have left for good as his later children were baptised in Blackburn. At this time towns would have been responsible for the support of their poor, but would repatriate outsiders to their place of origin. It's interesting that Askrigg was given as the family's 'last legal settlement' as he was born in Skipton and we have no record of him or his father having ever lived in Askrigg. It is possible that the reverted to Henry's parents' legal settlement, but as Henry ARCHIBALD senior was a 'traveller' so they went with his mother, Mary SAGAR's place of birth.

The fact that Henry's son James was not mentioned in the documents suggests that he did not survive until 1826. Furthermore, his wife Sarah was likely pregnant with daughter Susannah during these proceedings. This must have been a extremely difficult time for the family.

Later Henry may have operated a beer house in Friday Street with his brother Robert who joined him in Blackburn in the late 1840's. Henry was still living at 9 Friday Street in July 1852 when he registered his mother's death.
