Hello,

I have just found "worsted wool" textile ancestors, in the Bradford area , so I am looking for any information , preferably in book form on this subject, they were in this trade from 1851 to about 1865.

thanks.

Horseshoe.

Have a look at books.google, type in Bradfors worsted woollen industr, some of the books can be read on line

Try Bradfod on wiki

http://www.old-maps.co.uk/index.html, you should be able to see the mill most probably nearest to your ancestors home, were they may have worked.
