After the Newell family came the Earnshaws who probably moved there in 1808 when John Earnshaw married Betty Stansfield. Betty died at Clinton in April 1812, and John married again in the September of 1812. His second wife was Mally Butterworth and they continued at Clinton until after 1819, although as John’s occupation was a labourer and stone getter it is unlikely they farmed the land.
In 1841 the farmhouse is unoccupied, although two cottages have tenants. One of these is Edmund Newell, the son of Edmund and Mally who farmed at Clinton from about 1800. It is possible Edmund junior was born at Clinton. He worked in a stone quarry close to the farm, supporting his wife and nine children as best he could. He died tragically in June 1849, as evidenced by the following newspaper report:
23 June 1849
Fatal Accident in a stone quarry
A serious accident occurred on Wednesday last to a man named Edmund Newell of Clinton who was engaged in working a small stone quarry, situated at the top of Flowerscarr a few miles from Todmorden. The deceased was found by his brother about noon, laying with his face towards the ground, being partially covered with earth and quite dead. A quantity of earth projected above where the deceased was at work, and fell upon him and caused his death. He has left behind a wife and nine children, who are represented to us as deserving objects of Christian benevolence.
