The following extract is taken from a book "The work and life of I. D. Hooson", written in Welsh by W.R. Jones
"...than the dear small boy in Victoria House, Rhosllanerchrugog, who was born on 2nd September 1880, and who was given the name Isaac Daniel Hooson.
A son he was to Edward and Harriet Hooson. Edward Hooson came from Holywell to Rhos as a young apprentice to Mr. Ben Davies, who kept a grocer shop in Pant St. During the first half of the 18th century came the first Hoosons to Wales, and it was to Flintshire that they came.
Lead miners came to Flintshire from Cornwall in a group at a time when lead mining was becoming too costly. As far as I know, there is no reference to them in the history, confirming what has been said. The numbers involved were not big enough, nor had stayed long enough, to influence the mining of lead.
Some of the Hoosons stayed in Flintshire, and when the young apprentice came to Rhos, he had lost all thoughts of his home parts in Cornwall: a Welshman was Edward Hooson."
