Shelley History - The People

William Shelley (1786-1841)

There is no information relating to his early years or to the type of work that he undertook. However in 1812 he is known to have returned to the area and carried on his father’s business working at the factory. The factory went under the name Shelley, Pye & Company, although this did not last too long as he left the factory in 1821.
