Crimbles Terrace, looking towards Huggan Row (Pudsey) (1 comment)
Colour image1975. View of Crimbles Terrace looking towards Huggan Row at the bottom. This is a street of stone terrace houses built in the nineteenth century. Huggan Row is named after William Huggan 1802-1869, a local cloth-maker and benefactor. He had held the office of Guardian of the Poor and the Overseer of the poor. In the late 1860s William Huggan was a councillor of the Bramley ward in Leeds Town Council. On the census of 1851 he is recorded as residing at Crimbles Green, a woollen cloth manufacturer with 73 men and 55 women in his employ. He purchased property at number 3 Crimbles Road which became a Grocer's shop run by his son, John Huggan (as listed on the census of 1851.)

Huggan Row, Crimbles (Pudsey)
Colour imageUndated. View of Huggan Row in the Crimbles area of Pudsey. This short row of stone terraced homes is typical of early housing in Pudsey, particularly in the Crimbles area. Crimbles Green was common land until the Enclosure Act in the early nineteenth century. This led to the land being divided into small plots which were only suitable for building on. Huggan Row is named after the Huggan family, possibly by William Huggan, born in 1802 who lived in the Crimbles area. The 1851 census records him with his wife, Esther and children, William, Thomas and Esther. His occupation is listed as a clothing manufacturer with 73 men and 55 women in his employ. In 1871 one of the houses in Huggan Row was occupied by cloth manufacturer Thomas Huggan, son of William, and his wife, Hannah and two young children. Next door was his older brother, William Huggan, also a cloth manufacturer, with his wife Jane Ann and their four children. Nearby, in Crimble Road, was the Grocer's shop of John Huggan (also a farmer of 22 acres). He lived with his wife Sarah and five children. In 1871 his eldest daughter, Rhoda (16) was assisting him in the shop. William Huggan (born 1802) was an overseer of the poor and became a Leeds Councillor for the Bramley Ward.

Kent Road, looking towards Lowtown (Pudsey)
Colour imageUndated. View of Kent Road (formerly Crimbles Road) looking in the direction of Lowtown. This is a very old part of Pudsey. The white-rendered house on the left was number 3 Kent Road though it has since been renumbered and is now number 6. It was built in about 1840 on behalf of grocer, Mary Webster, wife of the late John Webster, a Lowtown clothier who died in 1839. The house was once part of a row of three houses. The other two, now demolished, were built at an earlier date of 1820s/30s by John Webster. Mary Webster was formerly Mary Threapleton, the widow of shopkeeper Samuel Threapleton and had inherited her husband's estate. The white house in the image became the property of the Huggan family from about 1854 when it was sold to William Huggan. At that time it was occupied by William Briggs. However, later in the nineteenth century it became the residence of William Huggan's son, John. The 1871 census lists him as a grocer but also as a farmer of 22 acres. He was assisted in the shop at that time by his 16 year old daughter, Rhoda. (The grocery shop is thought to have been in the house next door, one of the ones built by John Webster and now demolished, but we have no evidence to confirm that at the moment.) The next old stone building, on the corner with Lowtown, was a well-established nineteenth century grocery business, that of Emanuel Mortimer, at numbers 87 to 91 Lowtown. At one time he had two shops in Pudsey. Opposite the junction with Kent Road is Lane End.
