John Galloway (1825-1896) of Galloways

1897 Obituary [1]

JOHN GALLOWAY died at Seymour Grove, Old Trafford, on December 16, 1896.

Born in 1825, he was early associated with his father's profession of engineering. He continued to take an active part in the management and development of the Knott Mill Iron Works until that concern was turned into a limited liability company a few years ago.

He did not take an active part in politics, but was intimately associated with many social and philanthropic movements, and was a Justice of the Peace for the city of Manchester and for the Hundred of Salford. He was President of the South-West Manchester Conservative Association from the formation of that division, of which his son is the present representative in Parliament.

Mr. Galloway was elected a member of the Iron and Steel Institute in 1875.
