Hamnett wrote in his notes: Thomas Rhodes, woollen manufacturer, Bottoms Mill (Rhodes
Mill) took an active part in putting down the Luddites in 1811-12.
The information he gave to the civil and military authorities led to
the arrest of many persons who had taken an active part in rioting
and destroying mill machinery. Several were sentenced to death and
to a diary which was the subject of an article in the Glossop
Advertiser of 21 January 1955: In 1792, John Platt entered into
partnership with Thomas Rhodes "in the business of scribling,
carding and billying of wool". This John Platt was probably the
brother of Molly Platt (see The Platt family of Glossop), the great great
grandmother of Tom Platt, water inspector for Glossop Corporation,
who owned the diary in 1955. A paragraph in a Hamnett article of 29
November 1901 says that the diary was that of George Roberts (see The Kershaw family of Hurst and Whitfield) and it had been
found by (Alderman) John Platt, Tom Platt's father.
