WOMENFOLK 20TH CENTURY
Ellen's story is fairly typical of a working class woman of the period, so I will use the story as a portrayal of that time, and also the story of my Mother. The story also depicts the sadness and hardship women and children endured, less than 100 years ago.
The women were often dominated by their husbands, and at the turn of the 20th century still had not been given the right to vote at an election. Tragic deaths , hunger, and poverty were constant companions. Making ends meet was not just a saying it was a very real way of life.
Women back then were great improvisers , making clothes, making meals out of sparse supplies, keeping clean in an atmosphere of grime and soot, and managing the household budget amongst a great many other things. Despite the hardship, the workload, the grimy surroundings, and the heartbreaks the spirit of these women was indomitable.
THE STORY OF ELLEN FAIRHURST
Ellen Fairhurst, was
born 1876 in Wigan Lancashire she was the daughter of William Fairhurst a
coalminer and Margaret Fairhurst nee Pendlebury, in 1881the family consisted
THE STORY OF MARGARET JANE CHESWORTH
Shortly after the death of her Mother, Margaret returned home from School one afternoon to be confronted with her Father.
" Margaret that's it, you won't be going to School anymore you will stay home and look after things. "So at the age of 9 with the sad loss of her Mother to bear Margaret Jane Chesworth was then faced with the daunting task of looking after her father, brother Harry, and also her half brother William Jackson.
Dedicated to our Mothers and
Grandmothers, they left behind a memory of proud, thrifty, hardworking women
with hearts of solid gold.
