Oswaldtwistle is a large village within the Hyndburn borough of Lancashire, England.It lies on the course of the Leeds and Liverpool Canal, 3mi east-southeast of Blackburn and is contiguous with Accrington.HistoryThe name is derived from "Oswald" and "Twistle". The word "twistle" is an old English word meaning "brooks meet". Legend has it that St.Oswald, King of Northumbria passed through, giving the area its full title of Oswald's Twistle, which in time came to be Oswaldtwistle. However, it is more likely derived from the name of the Anglo-Saxon who farmed the land.The Peel familyRobert Peel was born at Peelfold (within the township) in 1723, and laid the family fortunes by innovations in calico printing. A particularly successful pattern featured a sprig of parsley and Robert became known as "Parsley Peel". The soubriquet helps distinguish him from his son also Robert Peel, who was born at Peelfold in 1750 and went on to became a successful cotton-mill owner (with large works at Bury and Burton on Trent), a very rich man, an MP and a Baronet. Sir Robert's son (Parsley Peel's grandson), born at Bury was yet another Robert Peel and in due course Sir Robert Peel; he was a full-time politician and rose to be Prime Minister. Another historical figure associated with the textile industry was James Hargreaves, inventor of the Spinning Jenny.
