Individual Note

George Thomas Gunning was born in Dublin, Ireland about 1860, when his mother Ellen returned home to her parents for her first confinement (whilst his father was likely posted abroad in the British Army). His father was Thomas Gunning, a Corporal in the 36th Foot, and his mother was Ellen Gunning nee Keenehan. In 1871 aged 10 he was a scholar in Hulme, Manchester, his father having left the Army. In 1879 aged 18 George, then a Chair Maker, married Emma Kirkwood, in Lower Broughton, Salford. By 1885, the family had moved to Keighley. George continued to be a Chair Maker, taking on his brother Leonard as an apprentice by 1891. Thomas & Emma had 9 children, 1 dying in childhood. Louisa Gunning was one of the survivors, being born in Keighley in 1890. George Gunning died of tuberculosis comparatively young in 1909 aged 48, having survived his wife by one year. George's youngest daughter was 8 at the time of his death.
