1870 At the Assizes John Tyldesley of Riley St Halliwell, overlooker at Hesketh's, was charged with bigamy when he pleaded not guilty and was put back. Afterwards he was brought up again and advised by his counsel (Mr Richardson) to withdraw his plea, and he accordingly pleaded guilty to the charge of marrying Alice Crompton, on the 8th of January, 1860, at Holy Trinity Church, Bolton, knowing at the time that Eleanor Tyldesley, his first wife, whom he married on the 15th of July, 1857, at the Wesleyan Chapel, Farnworth, was still alive. He was sentenced to 15 months' imprisonment with hard labour.
