Notes for Thomas WROE

In 1803 Mr Thomas Wroe of Hollinwood son of Mr Isaac Wroe of Blakeley erected a cotton mill at Hollinwood.

Mr Wroe and his partner Mr Duncuft erected a cotton mill at West Houghton near Bolton about 1810 where by introducing power looms the manufactory became obnoxious to the populace and on the 24th of April 1812 was attacked by a riotous mob wilfully set on fire and destroyed.

For this outrage three men and a boy were executed at Lancaster on the 11th of June the same year. [97]
