Its name is of Saxon origin. It was named "Gisele" in the Domesday Book, much of the Aire valley was once wooded and "ley" means a clearing in the woodland.[2] Guiseley's church dedicated to St Oswald was the centre of a large parish that included many surrounding villages. It used by generations of the Longfellow family. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's grandfather left here for the New World in the 18th century. The rector of St Oswald's for several decades was Rev. Robert More, who died in 1642. He was the father-in-law of the English explorer, Capt. Christopher Levett.[3] Patrick Brontë and Maria Branwell were married at St Oswald's and became the parents of six children, including Anne, Charlotte and Emily Brontë. Business Harry Ramsdens Crompton Parkinson was a major employer in the town until its factory closed in 2004. The town was also the home of Silver Cross, a pram manufacturer, whose factory was in Guiseley from 1936 to 2002.[4] The town is most famous for Harry Ramsden, who sold fish and chips from a small shed next to the tram stop. In 1930 he opened his first fish restaurant (which is still trading) and was, for many years, "the world's biggest fish and chip shop". Harry Corbett's famous children's television glove puppet character Sooty stage act was conceived in his parents' "Springfield" fish and chip shop on Springfield Road in Guiseley. The restaurant was featured in a BBC documentary in Spring 2008 and now boasts the slogan 'As Seen on TV' on the shopfront.
