Birth
Note: Johns birthplace has not been determined with complete certainty, the Parish register entry for his marriage to Alice shows him as being from Twemlow Parish in the Chapelry of Goostrey Barnshaw in Cheshire, other records show him as being from Gloucestershire or Cheshire. His marriage certificate to Nancy shows his father as Henry, a farmer from Gloucestershire, on balance I think I've got it right

Birth

Johns birthplace has not been determined with complete certainty, the Parish register entry for his marriage to Alice shows him as being from Twemlow Parish in the Chapelry of Goostrey Barnshaw in Cheshire, other records show him as being from Gloucestershire or Cheshire. His marriage certificate to Nancy shows his father as Henry, a farmer from Gloucestershire, on balance I think I've got it right

Story

He was named in a document titled Persons entitled to vote for MPs in the hundred of Macclesfield, township of Dukinfield which showed him as occupier of house & land as tenant. the rent in 1835 was £50

John Drury starts horse drawn coach service to Manchester - bets on horses

Quote fromDukinfield Past and Present

The Astley Arms, comparatively a modern hostelry, was built by John Astley, and at first was known as The White Horse. Its most famous landlord was John Drury, under whose management it acquired a wide reputation. During the summer months it wasmuch frequented by parties from Manchester and Stockport, and a coach service was established by Drury from his hotel, through Ashton, and on to Manchester.

The Wakes

On this hill theDukinfield wakes were held [...] Races for saddles and bridles were often run between the Old General and the Globe Inn, Dukinfield Hall. Drury, of the Astley Arms, was wont to assert that he made a year's rent during these few days of festivity.
