  • Note: 1

    Hugh Amory, whose birthplace and parentage we do not know, was living in the year 1605 at Wrington in Somersetshire, under the northern side of the Mendip Hills. In the enterprise of cloth manufacture, which had within fifty years transformed England's industry and commerce, Somerset and Devon were the leading counties. Wrington, as a market town in the midst of th wool district, eleven miles from Bristol the great port of the west, must have been a centre for collecting the wool, and probably for weaving it. It is not unlikely that Hugh, one of whose sons was a mercer and the other apprenticed to a woolen-draper, had himself something to do with cloth.
