William Coulson (1739-1801) established this damask linen weaving company in Lisburn in 1764, and developed its reputation for fine table linens. His sons John, William, Walter and James continued the business, and brought it to the height of its fame and achievement with royal orders from the Prince Regent and Queen Victoria. The original thatched factory continued to produce hand-woven table linen for royal and other prestigious clients until the 1950s.
