Background

He is most likely the same John Glover that received a patent in 1800 for a method of bleaching linen cloths, per the Annual Register published in London in 1801. He previously owned the estate of Great Lever, in the county of Lancaster, before losing it to bankruptcy debt in 1805. His daughter Lucy married James Freeman in 1808.
