AdminHistoryThe records of G Hattersley and Sons Ltd were deposited in the Bradford District Archives in 1983, following the liquidation of the firm. They cover the whole period of the firm's machine-making activities from its foundation in 1789, beginning with the production of screws and small parts for textile machines; developing from c1835 the manufacture and export of power looms; later adding such subsidiary products as tobacco machines and garden furniture, The firm was also involved in textile manufacture, which is part covered by these records; however, between c.1850 and c.1890 the weaving business was conducted separately by Mr Edwin Hattersley in Haworth and Keighley. The surviving records for this concern are deposited in the Brotherton Library, Leeds.
Although the records in this catalogue relate primarily to loom-making, there is also a significant quantity of material relating to the personal finances and outside business concerns of various members of the Hattersley family and their successors, the Smiths. There are some records for related companies, whether subsidiaries or firms taken over by G Hattersley and Sons Ltd
