John Armitage 1672, Longwood House, Huddersfield
« on: Friday 23 November 18 13:41 GMT (UK) »
I've just discovered that John is, I think, my6gGrandfather. His DoB is given as 1672 Longwood House, Huddersfield but I can't find much about the house online. Can anybody help with details of him, his lineage and the house itself.

I'm interested in the inter-relation of Armitage and North families. What's the connection between Armitage and Bolling Hall?

There is a district of Huddersfield called Longwood above Milnsbridge but Longwood House is located in another district of Huddersfield called Fixby on the other side of the town. - see link

In my opinion the marriage residence is not always the place of birth. Never forget Workhouse and overseers accounts records of birth

Thanks for the reply.

I've worked out what the North connection is.

It seems these Armitages are quite a significant family. Most references seem to relate to later generations at High Royd and Milnsbridge so I'm not entirely sure where my John Armitage at Longwood  fits in at the moment.

Paintings of Milnsbridge show it to be a very impressive house and it's quite sad to see what it has become today.

Genuki describes it thus: "LONGWOOD HOUSE, a farm-house in the township and parish of Huddersfield, 2 miles from Huddersfield."

Exploring further, I find a John Armitage baptised 6 October 1672 at St Peter's Huddersfield, father Rich.  Born in Fartown near Huddersfield.  Then I found this https://huddersfield.exposed/wiki/Longwoodhouse_Farm,_Longwood_House_Road,_Fartown,_Huddersfield
