  The purpose of this page. All the fields around this mill, above the present water level, have been searched by Ged Dodd with no seals being found. They should be there. He then did the fields on the other side of the reservoir out to Thruscross Hamlet ... and found one seal. The information here may enable some other searcher to locate the lost seals

 

Thruscross, Scott Lane. Ratten Row and East Gate

 The search for flax bale seal sites continued on the other side of Thruscross Reservoir along Scott Lane, Ratten Row and East Gate .. with only one seal being found, as yet up, in Thruscross Hamlet... unfortunately this seal is identical to one already found at Little Patrick Mill and presumably was brought there by a villager who worked over the valley at Little Patrick Mill.

   A brass coin weight of 1747 for checking the weight of a Portuguese 8 Escudos gold coin was found by Ged Dodd near the old Gate Inn showing how international the flax trade was at that time, with buyers using gold coinage from many European countries such as Portugal, France and Spain.

The weight has the maker name I.KIRK.F.LONDON

 inscribed around the outside rim. (Circa.1747).

 Another indicator of international trade was a small silver filigree brooch with a cabochon of Delft Blue Porcelain  .. made in Holland c.1600 - 1800 .. found on a footpath from Thruscross Hamlet down to Low Mill..

Pre Industrial Age at Thruscross Hamlet

An Annular Bronze Cape Brooch was found in a field near the hamlet showing the village was active during the Middle Ages ... long before the Industrial Revolution.

This was the 13th/16th century equivalent of a heavy duty safety pin.

Mr Murgatroyd lived in this now demolished house on Scott Lane.
