Glass industry 1700s st.helens

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Doing our family tree we have miners, clock repairers etc coming up right across years like many at the time.However after recognising family glass workers nearer to today we find in1720s a relative classed as glassworker of sutton. Is this at the time a cottage or similar industry?

Maybe a double glazing salesman early years person!!-eeh,

It certainly wasn't Pilkington as they started in 1826

According to Theo Barker's book, in the early years of the 18th century there was a glass house in St Helens, which was Leaf's works, situated in the 'Thatto- Heath/Ravenhead area of Sutton'.

THANKS.Our prob is that the surname seems to be changing around the 1700s.So we are reluctant to confirm but trying to xref any info.This will be useful.
