William Hand

Although William wasn’t born in Whittington he lived and worked in the area. He certainly had an interesting and varied life.

According to the 1881 census the address for the Hand family was “near the church” Old Whittington. In 1891 the family had moved to High St and were still there in 1901, by 1911 they were living at Holland Road, but according to the newspaper report of 1914 the couple had moved again and were living at 66 Church St.

As far as I can check without certification William Hands died in 1922.

Hope you find this excerpt from the Belper News 3 April 1914 interesting. Love the fact that at 75 William Hands was still working.
