Pigot and Co.'s Royal National and Commercial Directory of August 1841: Honley, South Crosland, Farnley Tyas and Neighbourhoods

The following section is reproduced from Pigot and Co.'s Royal National and Commercial Directory of August 1841.

Honley, South Crosland, Farnley-Tyas and Neighbourhoods

Honley is a populous chapelry, in the parish of Aldmonbury and wapentake of Agbrigg, West Riding ; situated about 34 miles south from Huddersfield, upon the river Colne. Fancy and other woollen goods are manufactured to a very great extent ; there are, besides, scribbling and fulling mills, and dye works — the entire furnishing employment to a great number of persons. The Earl of Dartmouth is lord of the manor, and holds a court, by his steward, annually in October, when a constable is appointed, and cases of trespass and damage adjudged. The places of worship are a chapel of ease, and one each for Wesleyan methodists and independents : the living of Honley is a perpetual curacy, in the gift of the vicar of Aldmondbury ; the present curate is the Rev. Charles Drawbridge. The chapelry contained, by the returns for 1831, 4,523 inhabitants.

South Crossland is a township in the same parish as Honley, a short distance from that place ; and the manufactures are of the same description. The chapel of ease here was erected at an expense of about £2,300 out of the fund at the disposal of the church commissioners : the living is a curacy, in the same patronage as that of Honley ; the Rev. George Hough is the present curate. A national school is in the township. The number of inhabitants, in 1831, was 2,258.

Farnley Tyas is a township in the same parish as the preceding places, about three miles from Huddersfield and two from Honley. But few manufacturing establishments are in this township, and, divested of these, it is a place of very little importance. The Earl of Dartmouth has, at his own expense, erected and endowed a church in this township ; and he contributes £30 annually to the support of a school in which thirty children are instructed. Population, about 900.
