1883. Pictured is Andrew Marshall, centre, owner of the Rothwell Times, with his staff. Andrew Marshall was born in Newfoundland in 1844, and his family moved to Rothwell in 1855 when his widowed mother married Richard Seanor, owner of Rothwell Match Works. The paper operated from Marshall's stationery shop on Commercial Street, and was published weekly on Fridays from 1873. It became part of the Rothwell Courier & Times from 1913 to 1923. Marshall's son Percy later joined the business. In the 1911 Census Andrew Marshall is listed as rate Collector for Rothwell Urban District Council. He died in 1923.
