On this day in 1836
Bill O'th Hoylus was born. His real name was William Wright and he wrote poems about local events in a dialect.

It was on the 22nd day of March, 1836, in a village midway between Keighley and Haworth, in a cottage by the wayside, that I, William Wright, first saw light. The hamlet I have just alluded to was and now is known by the name of Hermit Hole: which name, by the way, is said to have been given to it owing to the fact that a once-upon-a-timeyfied hermit abided there.

About Bill o th Hoylus here...
