Humphrey Lyttelton "The need for new housing in Halifax during the Industrial Revolution prompted the formation of building societies. The first was suggested in 1853 by Samuel Hansen, a local businessman, who became so disillusioned with depositing his money with traditional banks it began to affect his marriage. As his wife relates in her diaries, Hansen would put it in, lose interest, and take it out again."
