This stunning 16 seater extending dining table was almost certainly made by Gillow or by a journeyman working around Lancashire. It is of the highest quality and with a rich history, it is quite unique.
The table was once owned by the Ayres family of Colne, Lancashire who were cotton spinners in the area. Around 1936, Mr Frederick William Thomas Craske became vicar of St John’s church, Blackburn and the table was given to him by the Ayres family along with other pieces of furniture to help furnish the vicarage.

The Rt Rev Frederick William Thomas Craske was Bishop of Gibralter from 1953 to 1959. Born on 11 May 1901, he was educated at King’s College London before embarking on an ecclesiastical career with curacies in Manchester and London. After this he held incumbencies in Read-in-Whalley and Blackburn. From 1939 to 1953 he was Education Secretary to the Missionary Council of the Church Assembly and then (before his elevation to the Episcopate) founded the Church of England Youth Council. A Sub-Prelate of the Order of St John of Jerusalem, he died on 10 March 1971.
