Friday 4th January 1833 Rec’d £92 from Blackburn – Wooley Farm. Decided on Mr Dickinson being retained as Clerk, and that Mr Bewcastle should have a retiring pension of £80, and Mr Martin one of £40 a year. Had an interview with Mr Boyd, of Ridley, Bigge & Co Bank, and opened an account with them. Instructed Mr Burnhope [Burnup] to value the Lead Wharf. Received Mr Storey’s answer declining to be Bailiff, as he considered it would be more than he could perform.
Sir Matthew White Ridley of Blagdon & Heaton and Charles William Bigge of Linden were banking partners.
