Joseph was christened in Holy Trinity Church in Habergham Eaves on the 29th November 1868.
The 1871 Census shows Joseph as 2 years old, the 1881 Census shows him as a scholar aged 12 and in the 1891 Census he is a weaver aged 22.
Joseph married Elizabeth (Eliza) Jane Wilkinson (FM248) (b.c.1866) on the 11th September 1900 at Saint Matthew’s in Burnley (VRI). We think that they had a son called James Vivien but have yet to confirm this.
The 1901 census shows that Joseph and Eliza were living at 17 Ulster Street in Burnley. Joseph was a “Grocer shopkeeper” and Eliza was a dressmaker.
Joseph died on 25th December 1931 aged 63 in Blackpool. Probate was granted on the 14th January 1932 and read as follows:-
“Magnall Joseph of 62 Layton-road Blackpool died 25 December 1931 Administration London 14 January to Eliza Jane Magnall widow and James Vivian Magnall motor driver. Effects £2643 7s. 7d. “
