Notes for James IBBETSON
3rd generation cloth merchant. Made a large fortune exporting West Riding Cloth.

Bought the Denton Estate Nr Ilkley, from Lady Fairfax, wife of the 5th Lord Fairfax , or her son Thomas, 6th Lord Fairfax, in 1717. The Ibbetson family did much to improve the Estate and were great farmers, famed for breeding shorthorn cattle. They did have their fair share of misfortune, however, the original Denton Castle was burnt down around 1734, and rebuilt by Samuel Ibbetson, only to be destroyed, once again by fire, in 1743.

Will in National Archives Kew.
