  • Notes 
    • From website Old Ilkeston:
      Giving evidence to the Children Employment Commission in 1840/41 as an eleven-year-old coalminer at Barber and Walker’s mine at Strelley, Patrick Pollard (George's older brother) stated that he had worked in the pits from the age of nine, had to walk two miles for a six o’clock start, worked until five in the evening with no dinner break, and earned a shilling a day driving the asses.
      Patrick’s younger brother by two years was George, who, aged nine, walked to the same Strelley pit as Patrick,
      did the same work for the same hours and got the same pay.
      His education had also followed the same path as that of his elder brother though George could not write.
      In April 1856 George walked into the Bath Street chemist shop of George Purcell and purchased a few ounces of oxalic acid.
      The chemist warned him to take great care with the compound which George said was for use in his trade as a cordwainer.
      It can legitimately be used to ‘clean’ grubby leather before it is further treated. However this was not his true intention.
      George believed that he had recently been ‘spurned in love’ and a quick drink of the acid would relieve his broken heart
      permanently. But no sooner had the mixture slipped down his throat and the subsequent and severe effects been felt than
      George realised his mistake. He cried out for help which was fortunately and quickly available.
      The cordwainer was saved!!
      Within a few years he had left the town for North Shields where he married a local lass.
