  Trades 1858: flannel manufacturers  
Don't forget!
The surnames are first.
The list above shows many (but not all) of the flannel manufacturers in the area in 1858. Most of them were probably handloom weavers working at home. Some worked together in workshops.  
  For more on the production of cloth and the lives of the workers, see the pages on the local Flannel Industry.
