Thomas 
Garnett
, Stuff merchant (1861). Part owner of Gillies Garnett, silk dyers of Bingley of Oakwood Hall near Bingley (built ca 1864 by George Knowles (18??-1895)). 1881 census records him as a stuff merchant employing 34 men and 8 boys, also farming 9 acres. See:- http://www.oakwoodhall.co.uk/history-of-oakwood-hall.html part owner of Gillies Garnett, silk dyers of Bingley. Architect:George Knowles (18??-1895) was in practice at 9, Leeds Road in 1853. He took William Wilcox into partnership in the late 1860s. He built 1864 Oakwood, Lady Lane, Bingley - house for Thomas Garnett Grade II listed buildings in Bingley: Lady Lane (west side) Oakwood Hall 6.11.73 2/100 II Large mill owner's house, now hotel. C1864 by George Knowles and William Wilcox (Bradford) internal decoration to designs of William Burges and stained glass by Morris & Co. to designs of Burne-Jones and possibly Morris himself for Thomas Garnett (a local cloth merchant); mid C20 extension by R. A. Singleton. Hammer-dressed stone, ashlar dressings, Welsh blue-slate roof. 2 storeys with attic. Gothic Revival style. L-shaped entrance front with 3 gables and 4 bays. All are multi-light mullioned-and-transomed, windows except that to 1st floor of 1st bay which has a French-looking oriel. 2nd bay breaks forward and has doorway with Tudor arch and above, large stair-window. Over door is gabled Gothic gas-lamp, possibly to a design of Burges. 3rd bay has 4-light window to each floor and forms link to gabled 4th bay. Tall steeply-pitched coped gables. Stacks with diagonally-set flues to left and right. Left-hand return has 2 gables, one with 2-over-4 light stepped double-chamfered mullioned window in the local style. Stack of 3 diagonally-set flues to this range. William Burges's name is indelibly linked with the Gothic Revival in mid 19th century Britain. His design work for one of the richest men in the British Empire, the Third Marquess of Bute, along with major commissions executed at the Anglican Cathedral in Cork, Ireland, and Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut, earned Burges a truly international reputation. Thomas Garnett, a prosperous cloth merchant, built in 1864 a Gothic country house called Oakwood outside of Bingley in Yorkshire. He hired William Morris and William Burges for the interior furnishings. Burges produced remarkably detailed presentation watercolors for this commission, a set of which survives in the Royal Institute of British Architects in London. The floor plan of the drawing room reveals the original location of this card table. Three separate additional drawings record the table's overall form, carved details inspired by medieval bestiaries, and the marquetry inlay of birds derived from early tile decorations. The self-referential details of diamonds, clubs, spades, and hearts along the skirt, leave little doubt in the eye of the beholder as to the table's intended function.
