Excerpt from Some Account of the Family of the Armitages: From 1662 to the Present Time

Tions, and by the request of highly-valued relatives, I have been induced to put into shape those tra ditions of our family that have survived to the present time; and whatever else I have been able to glean from the few old letters that have come into my possession. I feel my inability to do justice to the task I have entered upon, but I wish to do all in my power to transmit to our children's children whatever may be the means of urging them forward in that path of industry, integrity, and piety, which I believe our ancestors have tr'od before us; and if this end is but partially attained, my labour will not have been in vain. I may here state that the traditions I have received have been principally from Hannah Howorth and Elkanah Armitage, the last surviving children of John and Hannah Armitage, of Waterhouse, in the parish of ashton-under-lyne and from my mother, who was the widow of Enoch Armitage, of Failsworth, brother to the above Hannah and Elkanah. The letters are mostly from Enoch Armitage and his son Reuben (at that time in America), to John Armitage, my grandfather and to my father; and some further particulars are from my brother, Benjamin Armitage, written after he had visited the family settlement in America, in 1793.
