Ralph Thoresby (1658 – 1724), was born in Leeds and is widely credited with being the first historian of that city. He was besides a merchant, non-conformist, fellow of the Royal Society, diarist, author, common-councilman in the Corporation of Leeds, and museum keeper. The son of John Thoresby, a Leeds merchant who for a time was an officer under Fairfax during the English Civil War, and was by inclination an antiquarian. When the local historical society was launched on 10 July 1889, it was named The Thoresby Society to honour "one of the greatest worthies Leeds had known".
