      CALEB K. MARGERISON,
      Died August 24th 1922,
      Mr Caleb K Margerison, who died at Crogga, near Port Soderick, on above date, was a member of the celebrated firm of soapmakers bearing that name, and is reputed to have been a man of considerable substance. About ten years ago he came to reside in the beautiful mansion at Crogga, originally occupied by the late Mr Mark Hildesley Quayle, Clerk of the Rolls, and he had lived quietly even since. He was a gentleman whom acquaintance could not fail to respect-kindly, unassuming, upright, intelligent and well-informed, and liberal-minded. He leaves a widow and several sons and daughters All his sons were educated at King William's College -where one of them had a remarkably distinguished career-and one of his sons, the late Lieut. George Jaffrey Margerison, was killed in the Great War.

  • Notes 
    • Chrissie Blackburn
      My mothers grandfather was Caleb McKune Margerison (through his elest daughter Margaret) Born Gloucester Bristol 1863. He was the son of Joshua and Margaret (nee Cooke) of Preston. I believe that William the brother might have been Mayor of Preston 1904-05 and 1910-11. #

      PS I believe Caleb retired with his family to the Isle of Man due to ill health*. At least three of his children went farming in Southern Rhodesia, Margaret (grandmother), Arthur and Richard (Dick).

      *Note Louis gave his father's address in the Isle on Man when he enlisted in 1916.
