Jacob was a very out of fashion farmer and his eldest son Jack ran away from home in 1964 because of a row with his father over intensive farming. Jacob drank away the farm's profits in the local pub The Woolpack leaving the farm in a sorry state. He left a will and died on the 10th October 1972 of pneumonia related to liver failure. He had left the farm to his eldest son Jack.
