The Greg Family
Samuel and his wife Hannah built a community surrounding the Mill, including a village for the workers and the Apprentice House; they even built their family home next door to the mill and developed the surrounding landscape into beautiful gardens.
As Samuel's business enterprise grew he acquired several other mills, all of which were passed down to his sons. Robert Hyde Greg inherited Quarry Bank Mill, which was passed down to Alexander Carlton Greg, who donated it to the National Trust in 1939.
