      1892 marriage certificate supplies the following information:
      James Ogden Holt, age 22, bachelor, Greengrocer, residence "West Gate," father's name = Samuel Holt. Father's profession = Licensed Victualler. NOTE: It came as a surprise to family members that James O. Holt's profession was listed as "greengrocer." Noting that the previous year in the census he was listed as "barman," perhaps the use of greengrocer on the certificate lent a higher degree of respectability.

      Frederick Whalley, a distant relation, writes, "One thing that does strike me from the census return is that James O Holt aged 14 is still described as a scholar which would suggest that he was probably attending the grammar school or was in private education. At that time children from ordinary schools in this area were working full-time at 12 years of age and in fact from age 11 years old attended school for half a day and spent the other half day learning their trade in the area's cotton mills."
