Criddle Estate

Postby Katykitten » Fri May 10, 2019 9:56 am

I am the great grand-daughter of John Frankland Criddle who built the Criddle Estate for his workers. In view of his philanthropic and generous approach we are currently looking into having a commemorative plaque for him and his wife Helah (an active Suffragette) somewhere on the estate. The museum are also looking into exhibiting some of the artefacts relating to his life and Criddles Treacle Factory, any input would be most appreciatex

Hi Katykitten welcome :D :D
John was a great benifactor reminds me of William Jones ,klondyke bill
the bootle Mayor who built houses in orrell for working class people
to use his own money from the sale to was it United molasses
and rent them out was a generous thing to do
to name the roads after emily pankhurst and ebinezer howard
was the thinking of a considerate man
pity the 1938 dir rectory does not have the roads down
but 1949 has Edgar Criddle at no 6 Pankhurst Road
one of your wagons is in the museum
hope your blue plague can be put up in the area
it would be nice if Sefton council would help :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:

They are currently saying there’s no funding for a plaque but we’re hopeful of changing their minds. Did you know my great grandfather “Mr John”, he died when I was three so I have no recollection of him at all. His three grand daughters are still alive and he has many great grandchildren, my sister Lucie is very like him in that she is also a philanthropist and her daughter studies Effective Altruism at Yale in the USA - must be in the genes!
