Several generations of the Howard family worked in the woollen industry which had established itself in the Holmfirth area by around the late 18th century. We have traced the family to Stockport, Cheshire, the Saddleworth area, Manchester and to what would nowadays be the suburbs to the south of Leeds. There is a link by marriage to the Bradbury family from Saddleworth. If you have a connection to any individual or family featured on this site, or if you want to leave us your feedback contact us.
