Quakers, or the Society of Friends, have a long association with the development of the linen industry in Ireland, particularly as linen drapers and bleachers. On his death the Quaker John Hancock, who owned a bleach green at Glenmore, Lisburn, left an endowment for the establishment of the Ulster Provincial School (now Friends' Lisburn) at Prospect Hill in the town. It was here, in 1810, that Hannah Morrison (b1796) practised her sewing and embroidery skills on this linen sampler.
