I don't think they are that old! I believe it was more to do with the
availabilty of woll in Yorkshire and the slow six bell rining which requires
one to hold up at backstroke big-time.

Re-reading the February 7th Article in the Ringing World I wondered if
Yorkshire Tails were a left-over from the days of deadrope ringing. I am
unsure about the exact way this was done, but if the tail end of the rope
had to be handled continuously, a Yorkshire Tail would make the operation
more comfortable.
