Hi My family came from Rawdon and were rom the woolen mills. I don't know much about
most of the mills. I know that there were three in the Thompson family Low mill, Park mill
and Larkfield mill. Is there any books on the woolen mills. Or could you suggest some one
or some way to find information. Also did any one take the name Thompson back in time
find where it came from. Looking at what I could with the area of England and did not know
if it could be from the Norse. and who were they. Part of old England. Everything would
help.. Thank you. hlp401@verizon.net

R123 I think Tom Houlden was my Uncle John's father. I remember the family saying he used to be in the brass band and played the big brass drum. They lived on Intake just off Town street Rawdon. Uncle John was best friends with Arthur Wood also my uncle who had the farm on Town street they later became brother in laws. They were also friends with my late father in law Joe Rawnsley. They went to St. Peters School. 😁
