Family: Sarah Ann Bailey (b. about 1840, d. 23 April 1914)

Main Events

  • Reference Number: William Henry Snelson had reference number SNELW$33.
  • Birth: He was born about 1833 in Withington.2
  • Biography: His great grandson Peter John Snelson of Queen's Park, Handbridge, Chester records that his father told him that William alighted from the wrong side of a train when he was pissed, and was killed by a passing-through train at Biddulph Junction

    On 10th November 1877 an article appeared in the Macclesfield Courier reporting "The Shocking Death of a Cheshire Farmer"

    A verdict of accidental death was recorded by the Coroner, Mr Dunstan at the inquiry held at the Railway Hotel.

    Evidently the deceased probably had travelled by the Biddulph train and got off at the Junction, trespassing on the line, where he unfortunately met his death by accident.

    This is not entirely consistent with the evidence reported in the Macclesfield Courier which was presented to the Coroner. Assuming that there was only one William Snelson killed by a train on this spot at this time, then my interpretation of the inquiry evidence is as follows.

    William was on seen on Congleton Station; an express train came through; probably, William got on board the Biddulph train and alighted at the Junction illegally when that train stopped to be shunted.

    The shunting was necessary as Biddulph is south east of the junction which is north of Congleton. About 1 mile north of Congleton Station, I can see that the line crosses the Macclesfield Canal. Some 100 yards to the south is the road to Brook House Farm, which is only about 200 yards away. William may have had a few bevvies too many, in spite of what the Coroner said.

    So, I think that William was killed by the Stafford to Macclesfield (and on to Manchester train) having alighted illegally at Biddulph Junction on his way home to Brook House farm, perhaps in a drunken stupour from the alehouse, after celebrating a day at the markets.

    In fact, he wasn't in my opinion going home at all. I think he was on his way to stay with his brother-in-law.

    All of this is quite easy to summise from a modern Ordnance Survey map which clearly shows the Biddulph Junction and the now dismantled railway which goes south-east from a point just north of Congleton to Biddulph.

    William I believe, had caught the train to Biddulph which went north from Congleton to the Junction where the train was shunted onto the other line to Biddulph.

    When the train stopped to be shunted, he must have got off illegally, as there was no station there; but it is within 200 yards of Brook House Farm - I can see it on the map ! At least, that is my reconstruction of how William came to nut the evening Manchester train from Stafford.

    What amazes me is the evidence given by Inspector Harris presumably reporting what I think must have been said to him by the train driver Briggs : " Not a minute elapsed from the time we first saw the man to the period we lost sight of him ". Does this mean that the driver and his fireman had William in their sights so to speak for a full minute and STILL HIT HIM !

    Had he been on the bottle or not, the evidence is very strange isn't it ? Everyone seems to be tripping over themselves to explain that (1) " There was not the least smell of drink " and (2) " He could not tell whether he was under the influence of drink or not " and again (3) " There was no evidence to show that the deceased was intoxicated ". All very strange.

    Nevertheless, it is still a tragic, unfortunate and very sad story. He left an estate of about 800 pounds in his will. [:CR:].
  • Residence: He resided in Brook_House Farm, Old Withington, Cheshire.
  • Occupation: He was a farmer.
  • Marriage: William Henry Snelson and Sarah Ann Bailey were married in December 1856 in Macclesfield.2

  • Burial: William Henry's remains were buried in November 1877 in Grave 37, St. John the Evangelist, Chelford.
