ABIMELECH ANDREWS’ BOOK 1822 - 1890
The manuscript derived from the personal journal known as Abimelech Andrews’ Book, is a simple record of events happening in the village of Farsley, resembling similar journals, such as the one kept by Reuben Gaunt. The book isn't solely the work of Abimelech, it was started before he was born, perhaps by his father or his Uncle George, and although Abimelech died in 1866, the journal continues, the last entry being in 1890. That entry and the two previous ones mention Charles Henry Andrews, so it may be that the book was discontinued whilst in his care.
The importance of the book is that it is mainly about local events, and practically every family in Farsley during the period 1822-1890 gets a mention, and although the detail is plain and sparse, one can find interesting snippets that embellish a simple vital record. There are gaps, most noticeably, the period after 1859. The journal changes style there, and lists some earlier family events from 1769 to 1890.
The document appears here in its entirety. Some names have been given their correct spelling to aid reserachers in finding them (eg Elis to Ellis). Some comments have been added by us for the sake of clarity and these appear in bracketed italics.
