Supporting the Homfray Trust


We are pleased to support and work with The Homfray Trust
Homfray first became a company in the 18th Century when Francis Homfray undertook iron mining.
At Homfray & Co.’s Penydarren iron works an engine built by Richard Trevithick in 1804 for Samuel Homfray undertook the World's first railway journey on the works tramway, winning Samuel Homfray a thousand guineas and becoming the World's first locomotive.
Henry Homfray founded the second incarnation of Homfray & Co on the 23rd May 1891.  He was Francis Homfray's great, great grandson and returned to Yorkshire, with his wife Marie Theresa Woodward, the daughter of carpet manufacturer Henry Woodward.  Henry Homfray started producing carpets in Sowerby Bridge and later in Halifax. Over time Homfray & Co. expanded, particularly under the management of Henry Homfray's grandson Henry James Homfray Gillam to become one of the largest carpet manufacturers in the World, employing over three thousand people in the Halifax area as well as having operations as far afield as Australia.  In 1952 Homfray & Co. was the first company to make carpets by the tufting process on a narrow machine at Albert Mill, Halifax. Homfray & Co included Riding Hall Carpets, British Furtex and Homfray Carpets.
The Homfray Trust was created by Henry Homfray in 1928 to supply former employees with coal in winter. Today the Homfray Trust supports charitable funds and organisations connected with Yorkshire.  Henry Homfray's great grandson, David Murray Wells, a former director of Homfray Carpets, is a trustee of The Homfray Trust.
