Bolton's mills, how the spinning mule changed the textile industry, 1672-1929

The Crompton papers, 1672-1929

You are here: Bolton's mills, how the spinning mule changed the textile industry, 1672-1929 : The Crompton papers, 1672-1929

The Crompton papers are arranged chronologically. About half the documents date from the lifetime of Samuel Crompton, though relatively few are from the pre-1790 period. The emphasis, therefore, is on the later part of Crompton's lifetime when the mule had become the dominant spinning machine and Crompton had been left a widower, with five sons and a daughter to bring up. Most of the remaining documents cover the years up to 1860 and provide insights into activities associated with Crompton's commemoration, as well as into the business concerns of his sons. Letters predominate in the archive. Bills and accounts concerning both business and domestic transactions are also well represented in the archive. Amongst other items are newspaper cuttings, which mostly relate to Crompton's commemoration, and property descriptions and valuations. Accompanied by a detailed description to the Crompton Papers.
