This house was built for Wigan Coal and Iron Company it was built in 1869 and demolished on the 8/11/1991, I have all the people's names dates and positions they had within WCIC, Thomas McLeod Percy and his Brother Matthew both were managers both lived in Hemfield House, the Percy's were very important people, in the coal industry there father Francis was also manager he lived in kirkless Hall from 1869, Thomas was also chairman of the council in 1903 I hope to start a blog showing the history of WCIC that time forgot
