- Mr. Abraham Brooke might almost be termed a Soothill worthy, because he resided in that district and the business which he established was in the Old Soothill urban district. He was the head of a firm of wool merchants, and was at first in partnership with his brother, Mr. George Brooke, the style of the firm being "Abraham Brooke and Co.". Mr. Sunderland was also a partner with Abraham Brooke and others associated with the concern were Sir Norman Rae (as a young man prior to his going to Bradford), Mr. Oswald Whitehead and Mr. Rishworth.
