  • 1863
    Age 71
    Died in 1863.
    More Details Hide Details
  • 1862
    Age 70
    As at Whalley Range, so at Brooklands he built a private road in 1862 with land available for superior residences.
    More Details Hide Details This road was four miles long and led to the station. It was wide and tree lined, with a sound stone foundation. From Brooklands Station it led straight in a south-easterly direction for 2 ½ miles. This part is called Brooklands Road on the 1872 six inch map. It crossed the Stockport-Altrincham turnpike (now the A560) and two minor roads: Dobbinetts Lane and Whitecarr lane. This was called Hale Road. It then used Roaring Gate Lane to Davenport Green before providing a further new road (Ashley Road) to the Altrincham-Wilmslow road (now the A538) in the village of Hale. The name Brooks’s road gradually became accepted for Hale Road and Ashley Road. It can easily be followed today (2007). Beyond the immediate vicinity of Brooklands, most of this road was not used for development. It may have been made for Samuel’s own convenience in travelling around his estate. Since World War II, development has been restricted by planning laws and some of the road still passes through greenbelt agricultural land. Other parts are likely to be developed in the near future.
  • FORTIES
  • 1836
    Age 44
    In 1836 he bought Jackson’s Moss, a swampy area south of the city centre.
    More Details Hide Details He drained it and built villas for wealthy businessmen such as himself. The house he built for himself was named Whalley House and the area acquired the name Whalley Range probably after his boyhood home. Tollbars guarded this exclusive area and the site of one of them is still called “Brooks’s Bar” though simplified in local pronunciation to Brooks' Bar (with long "oo"). Here is the Whalley Hotel on the corner of Withington Road and Upper Chorlton Road. In 1856 Samuel bought a vast area of land in North Cheshire (within Trafford since 1974) from the Earl of Stamford and made further purchases later. He enhanced its value by draining, scrub clearance and tree planting. The area was crossed by the Manchester, South Junction and Altrincham Railway, opened in 1849. A road crossed this railway between Sale and Timperley stations, and in 1855, 45 residents petitioned for a station there. The company took no action but in 1859, Brooks negotiated terms for a station. He offered an acre of land for £200, and guaranteed to pay the company £300 if annual receipts had not reached £100 after five years. The unofficial name "Brooks’s land" soon became Brooklands, and the station so named opened there on 1 December 1859. Annual receipts reached £100 after two years.
