Biography
In 1816 a brass and reed band was founded by Peter Wharton in the Yorkshire village of Queenshead, -later to become Queensbury. John Foster, apart from being the founder of Black Dyke Mills, played French Horn in this band. It has been said on many occasions that Black Dyke was formed from it, however this is not strictly true, as "Peter Wharton's band went out of existence through loss of members". In 1833 a new band was formed named 'Queenshead Band',which may well have contained players from the former band. It is reported that this Band reached its Zenith from 1838 to 1843, at which time it consisted of 18 musicians".
