GEORGE SINGLETON 1754 - 1835
At one point, the owner of the White Bull.
George was born in 1754. He inherited Chingle Hall on the
deaths of his uncle Richard and his father, James. He married 
Margaret Higginson, who was 29 years his junior, b. 1783.

George built Broughton Hall. He was appointed Surveyor of Highways
for the parish of Broughton on 22nd September 1819. He was a member 
of Broughton Catholic Charitable Society from 1824 until his death.

George died on 25th March 1835 and his wife died on the 22nd February 1847.
They are both buried at Fernyhalgh where there is a memorial to George
Singleton on the west interior wall of the chapel at the 8th station of the cross.

George had older sisters, Elizabeth 1749 - 1820, and Ann, born 1751.

OBTAINING GOODS UNDER FALSE PRETENCES.
A man named John Harrison, was committed to the
House of Correction, for trial at the Sessions, on the
charge of having obtained a quantity of deal boards,
from Mr. Gillibrand, builder. The prisoner stated that
he was ordered to procure the timber by and for,
Mrs. Riley, of New Street. Having, by this representaion,
obtained possession of it, he immediately disposed of it
at a reduced price. The prisoner had nothing to say in
his defence.
He has, we are informed, been previously convicted
for a similar offence, and is a well-known character to
 the police.

ST. CRISPIN
The 50th anniversary of the "Sons of St. Crispin"
was held at the house of Mr. Jackson, the White Bull
Inn, New Street, on Thursday last, when upwards of
50 members, their wives and sweethearts, sat down
to an excellent dinner. After the cloth was withdrawn,
Mr. B. Richardson was called to the chair, when, after
the usual loyal toasts, due honour was done to "Our
patron saint, St. Crospin," "The Borough Members,"
"The Master Curriers," "The United Society of
Shoemakers," "The Town and Trade of Preston,"
and "The Worthy Host."
The song and dance occupied the remainder of
the evening.

TO COVER THIS SEASON
At his own stable, at the White Bull Inn, 
New Street, Preston, that well-known and
justly celebrated Grey Horse, LORD SALTOON
- Lord Saltoon is very handsome, speedy, and 
powerful, and his equal for endurance is yet 
unknown.
The proprietor recommends all breeders of first
rate cattle to look to stock instead of pedigree.

The horse is stinted to 20 mares.

William Atkinson has also one of the best bred
BOARS in the U.K., which he designates the 
YORKSHIRE WONDER.
W.A. has stinted him to a certain number.
The stock surpasses all in the country for
symmetry, but more particularly for size and
weight.
Apply to William Atkinson at the White Bull Inn,
New Street.
