William Higgins brick maker
William Higgins & Son were bricklaying contractors (ca 1820-50's) and later (1860? onwards) a brick manufacturer in Cheetham Hill well into 20th century. Does anyone have more details of their operations? They operated out of Exchange St, Cheetham Hill Road in 1860's and had some brick works in Broughton Street. William Higgins senior retired to Stocks Farm,where he died in 1872 and his son, also William, lived at Moreton House, 1 Petworth Street, where he died 1871. I believe a further 2 generations of Higgins ran the business at least. Is this business still in being today? Are the brickworks still standing? Can anyone give me more information about Stocks Farm & Moreton House?
