As ofit is still open and free to use. A number of inhabitants supported the Glorious Revolution in They became discontented with the Tory clergy at the collegiate churchand a separate church, more to their tastes, was founded by Lady Ann Bland.
St Ann's Church is a fine example of an early Georgian church, and was consecrated in The surroundings, what is now St Ann's Square but was previously known as Acresfield, were in imitation of a London square. About this time, Defoe described the place as "the greatest mere village in England", by which he meant that a place the size of a populous market town had no form of local government to speak of, and was still subject to the whims of a lord of the manor.
Despite its previous radicalism, the town offered no resistance and the Jacobites obtained enough recruits to form a ' Manchester Regiment '. It is suggested that this was because the town had no local government to speak of, and the magistrateswho could have organised resistance, were mostly conservative landowners. Moreover, these Tory landowners had taken to apprenticing their sons to Manchester merchants, so the political complexion of the town's elite had changed. The Jacobite army got no further than Derbyand then retreated.
On their way back through Manchester, the stragglers were pelted by the mob. The luckless 'Manchester Regiment' were left behind to garrison Carlislewhere they quickly surrendered to the pursuing British Army.

The overhang contained privies, whose waste fell straight into the River Medlock below. The Spinning Jenny in marked the beginning of the Industrial Revolution bringing with it the first fully mechanised production process, although some sources define the start of the Industrial Revolution as Julywhen the Duke of Bridgewater's canal reached Castlefield.
Indeed, it was the importing of cottonwhich began towards the end of the 18th century, that revolutionised the textile industry in the area. This new commodity was imported through the port of Liverpoolwhich was connected with Manchester by the Mersey and Irwell Navigation - the two rivers had been made navigable from the s onwards.
Manchester now developed as the natural distribution centre for raw cotton and spun yarnand a marketplace and distribution centre for the products of this growing textile industry.
Richard Arkwright is credited as the first to erect a cotton mill in the city. His first experiment, installing a Newcomen steam engine to pump water for a waterwheel failed, but he next adapted a Watt steam engine to directly operate the machinery.
The result was the rapid spread of cotton mills throughout Manchester itself and in the surrounding towns. To these must be added bleach works, textile print works, and the engineering workshops and foundries, all serving the cotton industry.
During the midth century Manchester grew to become the centre of Lancashire 's cotton industry and was dubbed " Cottonopolis ", and a branch of the Bank of England was established in The city had one of the first telephone exchanges in Europe possibly the first in the UK when in one was opened on Faulkner Street in the city centre using the Bell patent system.
Manchester Central exchange was still the largest outside the capital in Edwardian times when it employed operators and the city had several other important roles in the history of telephony. Transport[ edit ] The growth of the city was matched by expansion of its transport links.

Manchester is as great a human exploit as Athens The commissioners were also given responsibility for road-building, street cleaning, street lighting and the maintenance of fire engines. There were food riots inand soup kitchens were established in Manchester was the scene of the Blanketeer agitation in Popular unrest was paralleled by discontent with Manchester's lack of representation at Westminsterand the town quickly became a centre of radical agitation.
Protest turned to bloodshed in the summer of A meeting was held in St Peter's Field on 16 August to demonstrate for parliamentary reform. It was addressed by Henry Hunta powerful speaker known as Orator Hunt. Local magistrates, fearful of the large crowd estimated at 60,—80, ordered volunteer cavalry from the Manchester and Salford Yeomanry to clear a way through the crowd to arrest Hunt and the platform party.
The Yeomanry were armed with sabres and some reports say that many of them were drunk. They lost control and started to strike out at members of the crowd.
The magistrates, believing that the Yeomanry were under attack, then ordered the 15th Hussars to disperse the crowd, which they did by charging into the mass of men, women and children, sabres drawn. These events resulted in the deaths of fifteen people and over six hundred injured. The name "Peterloo" was coined immediately by the radical Manchester Observer, combining the name of the meeting place, St Peter's Field, with the Battle of Waterloo fought four years earlier.
One of those who later died from his wounds had been present at Waterloo, and told a friend shortly before his death that he had never been in such danger as at Peterloo: The Great Reform Act led to conditions favourable to municipal incorporation. Manchester became a municipal borough in and what remained of the manorial rights were later purchased by the town council. Industrial and cultural growth[ edit ] The prosperity from the textile industry led to an expansion of Manchester and the surrounding conurbation.
This wealth fuelled the development of science and education in Manchester. The Manchester Academy had moved to York in and, though it returned inin it moved again to London, eventually becoming Harris Manchester College, Oxford. In Owens College was founded by the trustees of John Owensa textile merchant who had left a bequest for that purpose.
Owens College was to become the first constituent college of the Victoria University which was granted its Royal Charter in This flowering of radicalism and reform took place within the context of a ferment in Manchester's cultural and intellectual life. The Plaintiff has provided a copy of the sale agreement, evidence of appointment of the agent by the Defendant and evidence of payment of the said deposit.
The completion date in the said sale agreement was 15th January The Plaintiff states with regard to the completion date that the Defendant, in a letter dated 29th Januaryinformed it of new Board of Directors elected on 23rd January The Plaintiff further submits that the Defendant, by asking it to transact with the new board of directors in the said letter thereby waived the terms as to the completion date.
The Plaintiff also states that it informed the Defendants through a letter from their lawyer dated 10th Marchthat they were willing and ready to complete the transaction. The Defendant admits that a sale agreement was entered into on 24th October with the Plaintiff, but that it was illegal, null and void for various reasons.
Firstly the Defendant states that the purported sale agreement was executed by people who were not its directors, and had no capacity to enter into the agreement. Secondly, time was of the essence and since no extension was sought, the transaction ought to have been completed on or before 15th January Finally the Defendant avers that no consideration flowed from the Plaintiff to the Defendant. The evidence tendered by the Defendant is a ruling made by the Registrar of Companies dated 16th April directing that a new board of directors be appointed, and the sale agreement dated 24th October The Defendant accordingly indicated in a letter to Walker and Kontos Advocates dated 29th July that it was not willing to complete the sale agreement, and demanded the return of the original title document to the suit property from the Advocates.
Walker and Kontos Advocates were initially the advocates for both parties in the sale agreement. The Plaintiff thereupon on 17th August filed a plaint and an application in a Notice of Motion, which application is the subject of this ruling. I have read and carefully considered the pleadings, evidence, written submissions, authorities and oral submissions by the respective parties to this application.
I will proceed by addressing the substantive prayers sought by the Plaintiff in the application. On the first requirement of a prima facie case, there is evidence of a sale agreement signed between the Plaintiff and Defendants, and both parties have relied on the terms of this agreement in their pleadings and evidence.
There is also evidence of the Plaintiff and Defendant undertaking some acts pursuant to this agreement.
