Velvet mills and the Armitage family
« on: Friday 12 May 06 16:20 BST (UK) »
Hi all

Does anyone know if there was a velvet mill in Yorkshire in the late 1700s or earlier owned by the Armitage family?  I am afraid that I have no idea where in Yorkshire this mill might be but would be grateful for any help.

Hopefully

hi there

My Armitage ancestors all originated and lived in Kirkburton, near Huddersfield.  Most of them were fancy woollen weavers.  Can't say I have heard of the velvet mills either. 

Sandra you say your forebears are the Norths being linked to the Armitages, I have Norths in my family, they are connected to the Howes who are also connected to the Armitages.  Don't have much info on my Norths though.

This is a very old thread but might be worth a post to see if there's any life left in it.

My 6gGrandparents were John North and Love Armitage so there is at least one North/Armitage connection. They were married in 1724(April 2nd Huddersfield St Peter) There seems to be some variation in what is regarded as a true genealogy for the Armitages. Does anybody have a definitive version? I don't know anything about the Norths.

The Armitages or Armytages were a distinguished family and several were High Sheriffs of Yorkshire at various times and their roots are stated as being connected to the Houses of Stewart/Stuart, Plantagenet and Saxe-Coburg Gotha. I am particularly interested in the Stewart line at the moment because I have Stewarts in my lineage and DNA consistently links me with people who have demonstrable royal Stewart ancestry. Any info on the connection between Armytage and Stewart would be appreciated.

There is / was a velvet mills ( and shop, because I recall buying a lovely length of green devore [can't "do" accents on here] velvet in the late 60s / early 70s) near Denholme near Keighley in West Yorkshire. I've a feeling it may even have been called "Denholme Velvet" - but I've also a feeling that the last couple of times I've been near there, clearance and/or new building was taking place on the site. Local trade directories may help?
Threlfall (Southport), Isherwood (lancs & Canada), Newbould + Topliss(Derby), Keating & Cummins (Ireland + lancs), Fisher, Strong& Casson (all Cumberland) & Downie & Bowie, Linlithgow area Scotland . Also interested in Leigh& Burrows,(Lancashire) Griffiths (Shropshire & lancs), Leaver (Lancs/Yorks) & Anderson(Cumberland and very elusive)
