1800/1801 kept a grocer's shop at Crawshawbooth and had a hard time in 1800 and 1801 because of the failure of the harvest

On one occasion my father rode a great many miles in search of a sack of oatmeal, which he at length found and strapping it on his horse back he set off home. But on his way when he came at a village, such was the hunger of the people, he expected he should have it taken from him, but providencially he landed home and on his arrival such was the anxiety to get a bit that they feared its being taken from them after all his labour. They endeavoured to passify the people and by dividing it amongst them they passed away quietly.
