George Stanislaus Swarbrick - The Character!
George Stanislaus Swarbrick was my great-grandfather. He was a bit of a character and changed jobs frequently, working in the cotton mills, on the railway, at Fulwood Barracks, and, for a short time, as a beer seller at the "Market Inn".

His wife, Ellen (Boocock) Swarbrick was a talented tailoress and supported the family during George's many periods of unemployment.

Their youngest son, my grandfather Richard Swarbrick, was a professional roller skater (no, I'm not joking) and emigrated to the USA in 1911. More on this family on my website: www.swarbrick.info
