    Friendly Societies Remembered by the Odd Fellows  [1
    24 May 1915 
    • Fred followed in his father's footsteps in being active in the Odd Fellows in Knaresborough.

      At a meeting of the Manchester Unity of Odd Fellows in 1915 in Manchester Free Trade Hall the Grand Master delivered his presidential address. In this he remembered those who had died, as follows:
      "Once again the transient character of earthly life is brought before us when we remember that during the past year some 11,434 of our brethren have been laid at rest in hallowed ground. We cherish sacred memories of them. Their earnest efforts in the past will inspire us to greater zeal in the future. We think of men like P.G.M. Grimes, who passed away three short weeks ago - a man who left his mark on the great society he loved so well. I shall not soon forget the kindly, hopeful words he spoke when I heard him at Birmingham last. Gratefully we remember:-
      P.Prov. G.M.'s:- ... F. Inman, Knaresborough; ..." (Frederick was one of 30 P.P.G.M.s remembered that year; 27 others out of the 11 434 were also remembered by name)

      Why didn't Philip and Sarah marry until 1846? Hannah was born in 1843, but Philip was Hannah's father (according to his will) and both Philip and Sarah had witnessed the wedding of Philip's brother Isaiah Inman in 1838, so they must have known each other for some time. But it was only when Hannah was pregnant with their second child that they married. Apprentices were not allowed to marry, but Philip was too old to be an apprentice, nor does he appear to have been away in the forces.
      Curiously, he didn't marry his second wife either until after his first child with her was born (again, he claimed her daughter as his natural child in his will).

      David Greenwood and Jane Clough witnessed the marriage. I don't know the connection to either, but a Jane Clough (age 45) was in the same household as Emma Craven (age 15, a linen winder) in the 1841 census, so maybe Jane was a Craven relation. (In the same house there was another Jane Clough age 35 b Scotland with a Matthew age 30 and Frederick age 8 - both born Yorks)

    The Inmans: a family of characters
    My great grandfather John a servant but described himself as a 'gentleman'; pretended a golf's club money was his - and in his 60s asked for the hand of a young woman in her 20s - but accepted her older sister instead.

    His brother - commemorated by a plaque in Knaresborough Church due to his work for it.

    Their half-brother - elevated to the peerage.
