My great grandfather, a Henry King, went to the grammar school in Keswick, running away at 16. His family owned a bobbin mill at Braithwaite. Henry later married Elizabethe Kyle. Henry spent his working life as a gardener in various 'big houses' working into his 80s.
I would be interested to learn of any other stories of Henry King and family and particularly is there are any photos/information about the mill which I understand no longer exists.
