Sam Fitton was born in Cheshire, England in 1868. He spent most of his life in the village of High Crompton where he developed his skill in the Lancashire dialect of the area. His early verse includes the comic tale 'Eawr Sarah's Getten a Chap' which was later set to music and remains a popular local folk song. Fitton himself went on from verse writing to recitation and performing. He also developed a skill as a cartoonist and became the premier working-class cartoonist in the country.

Born in Cheshire in 1868, he lived almost his entire life in and around High Crompton, a village between the great cotton towns of Oldham and Rochdale. It was here that he developed his interest and passion for the Lancashire dialect culture. A number of his verses - 'Eawr Sarah's Getten a Chap' and 'My Owd Case Clock' - became standards in the dialect repertoire.
