My Uncle (aged 87) tells me that his father’s family came from Brown Edge and were nail makers (the name would be Manifold I think). He remembers Sparrowbill Cottage as the site of the business.
Do you have any information to confirm this?
Indeed Sparrowbill cottage is called that because it was the name of the type of nails made there. I thought it was the charlsworth family that made them but thats only from memory.
