Good evening guys,

I am currently writing a historical fiction novel in which a group nicknamed the Burnplatters also known as 'Duediz' feature heavily. They at one time dwelled on the 'Burnt Platts' at Worsell now known as Worts Hill at Pole Moor in Scammonden on the border of Yorkshire and Lancashire. I do know they would move around the Marsden Moor estate at the time, probably because the estates in the Worsell area were owned by the Earl of Dartmouth. On the Huddersfield Exposed Website, it seems that someone had been also researching the same thing. I've emailed the person that runs the website and he is unable to corroborate whether the Burnsides' really were the family that dwelled on the Burnt Platts.

I first stumbled across the group when reading the D.F.E. Sykes novel 'Miriam - A Tale of Pole and the Greenfield Hills.' What I will say is, if it is true, (which I think it is.) I am sure they were not the only family that were living on the Platts at that time. Other names I have come across that were possibly residing there were Sykes, Armitage, Parkin, Pearson, Sugden and Shaw (mostly typical Yorkshire surnames). The Scot heritage seems to fit with the Burnsides, Morrison and Stewart; names of more Scottish heritage. Another reference to 'Duediz' is a rumour that these families were former Jacobite militiamen of Bonny Prince Charles, and they took refuge in the wilderness following the abandonment of the Jacobite cause and his flight from the front lines. The fact that the platters were travellers and were 'hawking' and pushing wares seems to fit with other references I have come across which points towards these being the real Burnplatters. I am very excited at the potential of finding the peoples that actually dwelled on the Burnt Platts in their stone and mud hovels thatched with sods. The following is the link directly to the location of Burnt Platts as referenced on Huddersfield Exposed. https://huddersfield.exposed/wiki/Burnt_Platts,_Slaithwaite

I would love to get into contact with any Burnside, Morrison, Stewart, Shaw, Sugden or anyone else for that matter with any information, family folk tales of old about these families that would dwell on the Burnt Platts. Any help would be absolutely brilliant!

Thanks

Steve
