1635 Sep 15

On 15th September 1635, the following Conveyance was recorded:-

" For 2400 pounds: Robert Tetlowe of the Chamber Hall and William Horton of Berkeslande in the County of York, gentlemen, to George Wood of Growby in the County of Leicester and John Wood of London, gentlemen. Properties in Wernith, Oldham and Greenacres with manors of Wernith and Oldham. Witnesses John Tetlowe, William Horton (and others)."

It is recorded that George Wood was the husband of Roberts 'daughter and sole heiress Jane' (Baines). Perhaps Jane was a Tetlow, but as shown un The Visitation of Lancashire by Richard St. George 1613, she was not Roberts sole heiress. The reason for the sale of Chamber Hall after so many generations is not known, but perhaps there were debtsand the estate had been mortgaged to William Horton, or perhaps the move was triggered by religious or political strife and Roberts position in Oldham had become intolerable. It my be significant that Skirden on the Yorkshire side of the River Ribble was a Roman Catholic stronghold at the time. But what must have been the feelings of Roberts eldest son Richard who could have expected to inherit the Chamber estate?

(I totally agree with this account. It's also noted that in Roberts will, no mention of a Jane is shown suggesting she either never existed or was completely ostrasized. No record of a marriage is shown between Jane Tetlow & George Wood. William Dowdell).

A new Chamber Hall was built in 1640 next to the older premises by the Woods, whose initials appeard with that date on a lintel. But the Woods did not stay long at Chamber, for in 1646 it was sold to Henry Wrigley, a linen draper of Salford who in 1651 became High Sheriff of Lancashire. The front was rebuilt in 1752 by the Gregg Hopwoods who succeeded the Wrigleys by marriage. The building was demolished in the 1930's, but the name survives in Chamber Road near to Oldham Grammer School.

Tetlow Fold, Hyde, SJ96739546. Tetlow Fold was named after Reginald Tetlowe to whom a 90 year lease was granted in 1649 for the 'New stone buildings ... and the adjacent buildings with certain fields'. Two lintel stones on the oldest part of the Tetlowfold buildings give dates of 1645 and 1726. The initials of Reginald Tetlowe are inscribed with the earlier date, which is presumably the time of construction and the initials probably marked the re-building and enlarging which took place. 

[Country Houses of Greater Manchester]


Mottram. Edmund Ashton of Chadderton, leased to Reginald Tetlow of Godley, husbandman, eldest son of John Tetlow of Godley, "the new stone buildings lately erected by him" and adjacent buildings, together with certain fields, closes, etc, for 90 years. Now called Tetlaw Fold. (Footnote) A new lease was granted in 1663 to Reginald Tetlaw the son, (after the death of Reginald Tetlaw, the father), for 3 lives, his own, that of Martha his wife, and Alice his daughter. There are many other deeds relating to Tetlaw Fold, none of which are of much interest. Reginald died 1708 and his son William Tetlow in 1746, his next heir being Thomas Tetlow, apothecary, of Prescot, Lancashire.
