Report of a speech made in Bristol Times & Mirror, 16 September 1872, by Handel Cossham at colliers’ demonstration at Mangotsfield.
“Mr Cossham said that “unions were useful just as they were wisely worked. The right of every man to combine for the purpose of improving his position was right that only a man could deny who was a noodle and a fool (laughter), But it did not follow that because men combined they would always do right. He had seen combinations go wrong as well as right; but he had seen combinations in the upper ranks of life go wrong as well as these combinations of men in the lower ranks of life, He did not think the working men were more liable to err than others. He had seen aristocrats and lords make mistakes (laughter). Those lords were the greatest blunderers that ever lived. (loud laughter). They had made ten times more blunders than the colliers (renewed laughter). He had seen the bishops make mistakes and he had seen colliers make mistakes; but that was no reason why they should not combine. If rightly looked at, he did not think the interests of the masters and men were opposed. He hoped to see them become masters themselves. He could not see why there was not power enough in that neighbourhood and in every neighbourhood to save their shillings and their half crowns and have a colliery themselves. (hear, hear.) He would like to see the men in every district have a colliery of their own. That would bring them in contact with wages and with trade, and he would guarantee that whatever they could the masters would pay. He did not agree with strikes and lock outs for of all things in the world that did not pay it as the man who had labour to sell and would not sell it. He would get the best price he could for his coal and they would get the best price they could for their labour. It did not make any difference to a master what wages he paid if he got a corresponding price for his goods. Let them be moderate, just and manly, and try to gain what they had to gain by honest, intelligent and manly means. He wanted them in their prosperity to make hay while the sun shone. He did not believe that because they prosperous today they would always be prosperous, but he believed they had before them some months of prosperity. (applause.)” (I am indebted to Jane Baker for this.)

It contains remedies for various complaints and a great deal about the weather, but also some personal, parish and newsworthy items from the wider world. An undated note reads (about himself): “By the Hanham Chappell Register Book, John, the son of Jonathon & Betty was baptised Jany 8th 1775, but this register is wrong. He was baptised in either Oct or Novr as he was born 6th October 1774 by his mother’s account.” “1835, Sepr 16, broke my legg at Batheaston & came out of hospital at Bath the 2nd November”. “Aug 9th 1850, fell in quarry and injured my head.” “Oct 24 the Crane fell down nock’d me into the quarry, cut my head very bad and very much hurted my back.” It ends ” —carried on to other ledger” – but I haven’t got a copy of this.

John, “was married at St James Tide in a clandestine way without banns, not by me nor having any certificate from me; John Shepherd was married at Christmas without any certificate from me or his banns thrice published in church; Charles Smith, ditto, about St James Tide: (signed) Robert Drew, clerk, 1681.” BTs, Stapleton (John Cripps, Stapleton, gent/and Susan Harvey, Stapleton, 24, bondsman Samuel Harvey, Stapleton, gent, “at St Augustine” 25.2.1681/2, BMLB) They had a dau Mary bap in 1683. Sadly, Susanna died in 1685. In 1694, John Crips, gardiner of Stapleton, took out a licence to marry Susanna King, St James, (BMLB). As there is no further mention in the Stapleton BTs up to 1700, it is possible he moved to Bitton where he came across Mary Dafter, as she refers to John Cripps, gardener, his cottage, late Baylis, in 1722.

This family is very interesting in the Annals of Kingswood, for a remarkable member, Mary Dafter, the widow of Thomas, who worked as Steward to Sir John Newton of Barr’s Court, at a time when women did not normally have professional employment. The Newton family had removed to London, and Mary’s duties involved making complicated leasing arrangements on Sir John’s behalf with his tenants, all of whom are named in her letters 1713-26. She also refers to local events, which include a multiple execution and the local invention of what seems to be a prototype steam engine. In the later years, after her “great trouble” Mary occasionally unburdens herself to her master and mistress about family matters, and the story which unfolds is ultimately a tragic one. Mary’s letters are preserved amongst the Newton papers at Gloucester Record Office, and I am indebted to the late Mollie Ashley for the transcription. I hope (2013) to write this as an article in a forthcoming BAFHS Journal (2013)
