Statement of Interest

Part of the former thread and linen manufactory established on an unparalleled scale by George Robinson and his brother William, who imported Dutch techniques. From the 1780s production concentrated on linen stockings knitted "on a highly improved frame, of which these gentlemen are the sole patentees" (OSA) and employed 560 persons. The elder George Robinson (1713-98) built in 1786 the world's first

steam-powered textile mill in Nottinghamshire. This is its direct

antecedent.
