10.30 am  Searching for Samuel .... and the fortune he never made

Speaker:  Chris Tombs

The talk is about the search for a Manchester business man, Samuel John Hackney.  Samuel was born in 1840 in Ancoats and raised there.  As a young man, he established a successful lamp making and oil dealing business in Manchester.  Samuel had quite a humble start in life.  He grew ambitious and set out to make his fortune, but that dream was to un ravel.  Sources of information, including the National Archive, will be described, and learning points from the presenter's "journey of discovery" will be shared.  The story is woven around the backdrop of an incredibly vibrant Victorian Manchester, where great wealth could be made ...  or lost.
