About James Illingworth

James Illingworth, of Upland, California, was born in Esholt, Yorkshire, England, August 3, 1843. His father was James Illingworth, of an old English-Scotch family, he was a stationary engineer, for many years in the employ of the Baildon Worsted Mills. The son learned the trade of house painting and followed it until he came to America in 1866. There is a record of a James Illingworth, “Joiner” listed on the passenger list on the “S.S. City of Manchester” that sailed from Liverpool, England and Queenstown, Ireland that arrived in July 1866 in New York that appears to be this James Illingworth. A “Joiner” was basically a carpenter, which is certainly in the same industry as a house painter.

After his arrival in this country he worked at his trade, at first in Lawrence, Massachusetts, then in Missouri, Illinois and Kansas. In Kansas he also engaged in farming.

In 1887, Mr. Illingworth came to California and purchased ten acres of citrus land in the San Antonio Heights tract, Ontario. Later he located at his present home in the mouth of the San Antonio canyon, where he has ten acres in citrus and deciduous fruits. August 3, 1869, Mr. Illingworth married Emaline Jacobs, a native of Springfield, Illinois.

On 29 July 1888, James Illingworth became a naturalized citizen of the United States, and the Court Record was published in "The Daily Courier" newspaper in San Bernardino, California, as shown below:

James and Emaline [Jacobs] Illingworth had four children together - Joseph F., a graduate of Claremont and post-graduate of Stanford University, class of 1891, now at the head of the department of biology, Seattle High School, and Charles Grant, merchant at Randsburg. Flora M and George E. are dead. [Source: Ingersoll's Century Annals of San Bernardino County, California]

James Illingworth died on October 7, 1907, in Los Angeles, California, at the age of 64.
