Person Details
He was the son of Kate Millhouse and the brother of Fanny Hilda Millhouse of 13 Manchester Cottages Denman Street New Radford Nottingham.
He was a Levers cotton lace maker. Leavers lace machines John Levers adapted John Heathcoat's bobbinet machine in Nottingham in 1813. The name of the machine was the Leavers machine (the 'a' was added to aid pronunciation in France). The original machine made net but it was discovered that the Jacquard apparatus (invented in France for weaving looms by J M Jacquard in about 1800) could be adapted to it. From 1841 lace complete with pattern, net and outline could be made on the Leavers machine. The Leavers machine is probably the most versatile of all machines for making patterned lace and was widely used throughout Nottingham's lace industry . (Wikipedia)
