Joseph Glossop was a farm labourer, born in Kirkby Green c1796.  In May 1819 he married Ann Warsop (born Welbourn) in Wellingore.   They settled in Brandon and (by around 1850) were living in a cottage just to the east of the church (occupying a site now shared between Church Farm Cottage and the land next to the church, which is now owned by the parish council).  The property was sub-let from William H Preston of Brandon Hall.  After Anne died in 1851 he moved to Hough, taking his daughter Jane who was an 'imbecile'.  He was still in Hough in 1871 (though now shown in the same household as his son William, having previously lived next door). He later moved to Gelston, presumably with one of his sons and died there in 1880, aged 84.  Joseph and Mary had 10 children, all born in Brandon:
