Shackles, Thomas (1796-1834)

Shackles, Thomas, Hull, Yorks., cm and u (1796–1834). In 1802 had a residence at Hedon, near Hull, but by 1803 living at Lowgate, probably the house previously occupied by John Shackles. He was still shown at Lowgate in one directory of 1828, although others of 1814–31 give 2 Pryme St. His shop was at Eaton St, 1803–34. Directories also state that from 1823–31 he was additionally a ship-owner. In July 1801 took as app. Thomas Dickson (or Dixon) of Sculcoates, near Hull. Patronised by Sir John Nelthorpe who paid him £6 12s in December 1796 and £6 8s in December 1798. The latter payment may have been for 35½ yds of Scotch carpet and sundries supplied on 7 November 1798 at a cost of £6 8s 2d. [D; app. reg.; Lincoln RO, NEL 14/37/72, 74, 75]
