Families in the Colden Valley
Families such as the Sutcliffes, Mitchells, Ackroyds, Helliwells, Uttley, Ingham, Fosters and Murgatroyds were and still are common to the area and many can trace their ancestors back to the middle ages and earlier. Many of the families owned and leased mills up and down the valley and an inspection of the census of the time shows an abundance of the names as both mill owners and workers.

The involvement of these families in the mills and the marriages between these families can be clearly seen in the family tree of the Sutcliffes.
