However, research by staff and volunteers of the Williamson Tunnels Heritage Centre has shown that he was born in Yorkshire and that his father was a glassmaker in a small village near Barnsley.
At an early age, his family moved to Warrington. In , when he was aged 11, he left his family and went to Liverpool where he was employed in the tobacco and snuff business of Richard Tate. He gained promotion within the business and also developed his own merchant's business in partnership with Joseph Leigh. The following year Williamson purchased the business from Thomas Moss Tate and from this, together with his other business enterprises, he amassed a considerable fortune.
In Williamson bought an area known as the Long Broom Field on Mason Street, Edge Hill, Liverpool, which was a largely undeveloped outcrop of sandstone and around this time moved into a house on Mason Street. He then began to build more houses in Mason Street which were built without any plans and which were "of the strangest description". The land behind the houses dropped sharply for about 20 feet 6 m and, as it was the fashion to have large gardens and orchards behind them, he built brick arches onto which the gardens could be extended.
Following this, he continued to employ his workmen, and recruited more, to perform tasks, some of which appeared to be useless, such as moving materials from one place to another and then back again. He also used the men to build a labyrinth of underground halls and brick-arched tunnels.
Labour was plentiful at the time and with the ending of the Napoleonic wars in , there were even more unemployed men in Liverpool. The tunnels were built between the early 19th century and at depths between 10 feet 3m and 50 feet 15m and they stretched for several miles.
Their full extent is not known and many of them are still blocked by rubble. They vary in size from the "banqueting hall", which is about 70 feet 21m long, between 20 feet 6m and 25 feet 8m wide and 20 feet 6m high, while the smaller tunnels are 4 feet 1m wide and 6 feet 2m high. In August the Liverpool Porcupine described the tunnels as being "a great nuisance" because drains ran straight into them, in one place creating a cess pool full of offensive water 15 feet 5 m deep, and they were being used for dumping refuse, including down chutes built into the buildings above for the purpose.
Williamson retired from his business in but continued to be a landlord, one of his tenants being the Unitarian philosopher, James Martineau. Williamson's wife died in and he then became increasingly eccentric, devoting almost all of his time to supervising his excavations and tunnel-building. In the s he came into contact with George Stephenson who was building the extension of the Liverpool and Manchester Railway from Edge Hill to Lime Street Station and whose own excavations passed through those of Williamson.
There is much evidence of Williamson's eccentricity in addition to his tunnel-building activity. His own house and the other houses built under his direction were unorthodox and often impractical in design. On the day of his wedding, following the ceremony he went hunting, still dressed in his wedding clothes.
On one occasion he invited guests for dinner but served them only a simple meal of porridge and hard biscuits. Many of the visitors then left. He described those who remained as his real friends and invited them to stay for a more lavish feast. Relationships with his wife were not always amicable and he said himself that they led a "cat and dog" life. On one occasion Williamson set free all the birds in his wife's aviary, declaring that it was a pity that men did not also have wings to enable them to enjoy liberty.
His manner varied from being "rough and uncouth" to "kind and considerate". His clothes were patched and untidy but his underclothes were clean and fine. He was a religious man and held a pew at St Thomas' church.
Williamson died in aged 71 at his home in Mason Street, the cause of death being "water on the chest". The tunnelling ceased with his death. In St Thomas' church was demolished. Many of the graves were removed but the Tate vault remained. In the site became a car park. Click here for photos of the dig. The developers of the site, Grosvenor Henderson, built a memorial garden to Williamson when the development was complete. The reasons for him building the tunnels have been widely discussed. According to Stonehouse, he was secretive about his motives.
This has led to speculation that he was a member of an extremist religious sect fearing that the end of the world was near and that the tunnels were built to provide refuge from himself and his friends. However the most likely explanation is Williamson's own, that his workers "all received a weekly wage and were thus enabled to enjoy the blessing of charity without the attendant curse of stifled self respect", his prime motive being "the employment of the poor".
In the early 20th century soldiers from the West Lancashire Territorial Forces Association explored the tunnels. Their drill hall in Mason Street stood on top of one of the tunnels. In the Association produced a map of the tunnels, which was incomplete because many of them were filled with rubble. The tunnels remained derelict and filled with rubble and refuse until , when a geology student from Liverpool University carried out a micro-gravity survey of the site.
Some of his findings were ambiguous because of the rubble filling the tunnels and not all of his findings corresponded with those of the Forces Association. Later that year a professional firm, Parkman, carried out a survey on behalf of the Joseph Williamson Society. Since then further investigations and excavations have taken place and part of the labyrinth of tunnels has been opened to the public as a heritage centre.
The Joseph Williamson Society was founded in It was incorporated as a private limited company in and acquired charitable status in Its aim is to promote interest in the life and philanthropic achievements of Joseph Williamson and takes the form of talks, tours, publications and educational visits. In autumn , after much excavation, removal of rubble and renovation, one of the three sections of the site, the Stable Yard section, was opened to the public as the Williamson Tunnels Heritage Centre under the trusteeship of the Joseph Williamson Society.
Visitors are taken on a guided tour which includes the south tunnel and the double tunnel and various artefacts are on view, including some of the items which have been uncovered in the excavations. A programme of events and entertainments is organised on the site. The entry to the heritage centre was formerly part of the Lord Mayor's Stable Yard which closed in The stable became the home for a horse again when Pop arrived in The Friends of Williamson's Tunnels was formed in and are a group of enthusiasts distinct from the Heritage Centre whose aim is 'To advance the education of the general public in all matters relating to Joseph Williamson, in particular to preserve It received charitable status in They do not directly fund the Williamson Tunnels Heritage Centre.

He married Anne, daughter of the Rev. Gilbert Wakefield, and died at his house in Bloomsbury Square on 20 March, He was also a devoted Methodist and he played a large part in the civic matters of the town.
He was born in Winwick, Lancashire, but his family soon moved to Cheshire and eventually settled in Runcorn. Thomas was involved in various business enterprises before establishing a soapery soap manufacturing factory on the north bank of the Bridgewater Canal on land between the canal and High Street in Originally the alkali necessary for making soap would have been obtained from vegetable sources, probably kelp.
However, by he was making his own alkali by the Leblanc process. His venture became very successful and in his business was in the top 20 soap manufacturing factories in Great Britain. In order to disperse the pollution resulting from the Leblanc process he built an enormous chimney over feet 91m in height which was one of the highest chimneys in the country at that time.
In Thomas had a daughter, Eliza, who died in infancy. As a result of this Thomas was converted to Methodism and he played a great part in the development of the denomination in the town. At the beginning of the 19th century there were very few Methodists in the town, but by the movement was sufficiently prosperous to be able to build a substantial two-storey chapel and schoolroom, Brunswick Chapel. Thomas was extremely pious, praying in the morning, at noon and in the evening and not allowing this to be interrupted by his business or by visitors.
After his death the business was continued by his sons. He was buried in the churchyard of All Saints, Runcorn. Edmund Aikin born 2 October in Warrington, died 11 March in London, age 39 was an architect. He was the youngest son of John Aikin , M. He was assistant to General Sir Samuel Bentham, the architect of the Millbank Penitentiary, and published some designs in concert with him.
About his business took him to Liverpool. He settled there, and furnished designs for various buildings in that city.

Lucy Aikin born 6 November in Warrington, died 29 January , age 82 born into a distinguished literary family of prominent Unitarians, was a historical writer.
Lucy Aikin's aunt was Anna Laetitia Barbauld profiled earlier , a woman of letters who wrote poetry and essays as well as early children's literature. John Aikin, was a medical doctor, historian, and author. Her grandfather, also called John Aikin — , was a Unitarian scholar and theological tutor, closely associated with Warrington Academy. Lucy's brother was Arthur Aikin — , chemist, mineralogist and scientific writer, featured above.
Lucy was educated by her father and her aunt, an early critic of the education system. She "read widely in English, French, Italian, and Latin literature and history", and began writing for magazines at the age of seventeen, and at an early age assisted her father as an editor in his writings as well. Aikin was interested in early education, and as such published several works to assist young readers: Aikin also translated the French texts: She was also responsible for two creative works: She produced biographical works: However, as memoirs and obituaries are quick to point out, she was probably most famous for her historical works: Under the pseudonym Mary Godolphin, Lucy Aikin is also attributed for producing versions of: She was remarkable for her conversational powers, and was also an admirable letter-writer.
She died at Hampstead, London in , where she had lived for forty years. Maria's father died between and Her mother remarried to Mr. Greenhall, a recruiter for the British Army. In , her mother then died in Tuam, Ireland. Greenhall brought Maria to Canada in She was referred to as a "Daughter of the Regiment" because of her stepfathers' service to the British Army. Some say that Maria disguised herself as a man and followed her husband into battle, with her identity as a woman only being discovered after she was run over by an ammunitions cart.
It is now known, however, that there were some women mostly wives and children who were allowed to travel with the Regiment so she likely served under her own identity. Maria served the th Regiment in the Battles of Lundy's Lane and Chippawa as a surgeon's assistant.
After the war, in , Maria and her husband, Andrew Hill, were reportedly boarding a ship to return to England when they were offered land and a years' provisions to create a settlement for veterns of the th Regiment of Foot.
They later opened a tavern and smoke house for the Regiment in Richmond, Ontario at McBean St, where it still stands. It was there that Charles Lennox, 4th Duke of Richmond and Governor General of Canada, spent his last night before dying of rabies from a fox bite two months previously.
After passing away at the house of Dr. Collis, a former surgeon to the regiment, the Duke's body was brought back to the tavern where Maria prepared the Duke for his final trip to Quebec City for burial using the Duke's own quilted bed covering as a shroud. After the visit, the Hill's tavern name was changed from the 'Masonic Arms' to the 'Duke of Richmond Arms' in honour of the visit.
Andrew Hill died in Maria remarried Andrew Taylor, a Sergeant from the th Foot. They lived the remainder of their lives in Richmond, Ontario. Andrew Taylor died 29 March, , aged 79 years and Maria died 11 September, , aged 90 years. She left her estate to the St. John's Anglican Church in Richmond for a new church spire.
Although most of Maria's life in Canada is well documented, how she ended up in Canada is largely unknown. But his given name and profession cannot be proven.
Her mother's given name is also unknown but thought to be Mary. Finally the spelling of the surname of the soldier who brought her to Canada is thought to be Greenhall or Greenhaugh, likely from the Colour Guard but this still needs to be confirmed in Regimental Records with Archives Canada. Joseph Crosfield born 5 October in Warrington, died 16 February , age 51 was a businessman who established a soap and chemical manufacturing business in Warrington, Lancashire.
The Crosfield family had been Quakers since the time of George Fox and this tradition was maintained by George and subsequently by Joseph. George Crosfield was a wholesale grocer in Warrington who also had interests in a sugar-refining business in Liverpool. The family moved to Lancaster in for George to develop a sugar-refining business there, while still keeping an interest in his grocery business in Warrington under the care of his assistant, Joseph Fell.
From September , a time close to his 15th birthday, he was apprenticed for 6 years to Anthony Clapham, a druggist and chemist in Newcastle-upon-Tyne. By Anthony Clapham was also a soap manufacturer. At this time soap manufacturing was growing rapidly in the Mersey valley. This was largely because of the recently developed canals and river navigations in the area, which allowed for easier transport of the raw materials into the factories and for the distribution of the finished products.
A number of new large soap businesses had recently been established in the nearby towns of St Helens, Runcorn and Liverpool. It struggled at first, partly due to the trade depression at the time, but by it was making a profit. In Joseph was joined in the business by his younger brother William Around this time Joseph Fell also became a partner in the business and Joseph Crosfield bought the machinery from a nearby corn mill.
In addition to making soap, like many other soap makers Joseph Crosfield was involved in making candles. In they were the 25th largest business in the list of soap makers in England and Scotland that year. Joseph carried out most of the clerical work himself in the business, employing only one clerk.
By the s Joseph Crosfield was manufacturing his own alkali by the Leblanc process, rather than using alkali from vegetable sources. Rather than manufacturing it in his Bank Quay site, he took over a bankrupt alum works in St Helens with his older brother James — and Josias Christopher Gamble. Here he continued to make alum and also manufactured alkali by the Leblanc process.
He took out a patent for an improvement in the manufacture of plate glass, but the company failed. He also lost a considerable amount of money in a partnership in the Wharf Meadow cotton-mill.
