My ancestors were named Bateson and I do know that there were four brothers manufacturing cloth in Wortley in 1817. They were Matthew and James Bateson trading under the name of M & J Bateson and John and Joseph Bateson trading under the name of J & J Bateson.I know that the latter pair were made bankrupt after the stock market crash of 1825 and Matthew died in 1822.

James was more successful and lived at Highfield House, Wortley which is still there today and a grade 2 listed building. Do you have any information about their mills and where they where located please. I would be most greatful. Yours sincerely John S Wilkinson
