Memo. on rough sheet of an ac-
count book in Pim Nevins' writing.
"Pim Nevins senior married Eliza-
beth Jowett at Gildersome Meeting
(of Churwell) and commenced house
keeping in Hunslet(?) home in a
house occupied by Uncle B. Jowett
& in August that year they set out
to visit his relations in Ireland Kil
glassie. When P.N. was born in 1790
I bought 2 acres to build myself
|a house & warehouse & entered into
the house in May 1791. I was
partial to larches & called the place
Larchfield. Pim, Maria & Henry were
born there(?) the other children born
opposite the house belonging to Uncle
Benjamin Jowett. My partner who
I took 1793 began to make use of
my money when I decided to go to
America to investigate when my
wife suddenly died & I altered my
plans. Instead of going myself I sent
my son John in 1802 who was
only 15 years of age. In July of that
year I shut my house up & put the
children to school & sailed for New
York. On my return 2 years later
|I found all my children in Larch-
field house waiting for me short
of money then went into the cot-
tage & after prospering again went
into Larchfield again."
