After the Norman Conquest the area became part of two Norman estates and in the 12th century the presiding family took the name De Dokenfeld. An interesting point to note is that 'Dokenfeld' in Old Norse translates as 'field of ravens'. During the English Civil War, Colonel Robert Duckenfield of Dukinfield Hall was a noted commander in the New Model Army. His son was created a Baronet in 1665. Industrialisation - particularly the cotton trade - helped shape the town, but its rapid development destroyed its former pasture and meadow land. Most of the cotton mills have now been demolished, but some have been preserved and have been converted into apartments. Coal pits were also a major part of Dukinfield's industrial history, one pithead was located on Birch Lane, now the site of All Saints' Catholic College, with another near the northern border with Ashton-under-Lyne. There are three major historical characters in Dukinfield's history - John Astley, Samuel Robinson and Daniel Adamson. Astley, born in 1724 was a coal, iron and cotton industrialist who built Dukinfield Lodge. Robinson, who was a Unitarian, industrialist and scholar founded the village library in 1833 and was dubbed the "foremost promoter of education in the district" before his death in 1884. Adamson was a mechanical engineer who also became the first chairman of the world-renowned Manchester Ship Canal Company. He died on 13 January 1890. The Adamson Military Band, (which received support from Daniel Adamson and is named after him) set up for the workers, is based in Dukinfield. On 14 April 1874, a large underground gas explosion occurred in the town's Astley Deep Pit coal mine, known locally as The Astley Deep Pit Disaster. 54 men were killed. Dukinfield and its surrounding towns were major centres of civil revolt during the Nineteenth Century and briefly the area was a hotbed of Chartism, the popular movement calling for universal suffrage via a "People's Charter". The famous Chartist leader Reverend Joseph Rayner Stephens is buried in St John's Church cemetery in the town.
Dalbeattie In Dumfries and Galloway Is Said To Be The Birthplace Of Granite Polishing. Granite Quarrying Craignair quarry is a notable town landmark Formerly granite quarrying was an important part of the Dalbeattie economy. The most prominent of which is the characteristic Craignair quarry which is clearly visible to the west of the town. Dalbeattie Granite works was established in 1820 and was situated in Craignair Street, following a direct route from Craignair quarry. The industry died down locally around 1883 due to cheaper imports from Denmark. Many of the workers immigrated to other parts of the world in order to find work, a number immigrated to the USA to work at a sister quarry in Westerly, Rhode Island. Dalbeattie is credited with developing the technique of polishing granite stone to form a shiny surface. This technique was exported throughout the world by the skilled workers of Dalbeattie as they travelled.
