Biography of John Bacon

INH found the following about John Bacon.

Born in 1818 in Normanton Derbyshire, son of Derbyshire collier Daniel Bacon.

John Bacon 32 married Hannah Buckler at Church Gresley 19th August 1860. Recorded at the time as a resident of CG.

Additional information found, courtesy of Pat Halfpenny.

I found no record of children from the marriage.


No record, other than birth before 1851 and even that might be for the wrong person. There were other John Bacons in Derbyshire at the same time.


John Bacon, potter may have been a journeyman rather than a prince.
