Merchant's Marks Merchant's Marks

Ref: GBI8094
ISBN:

Merchants used 'marks' from at least as early as the thirteenth century and continued to use them for the next four or five hundred years.

In medieval times the risk of piracy or shipwreck was ever-present and it became customary for merchants to divide consignments of goods between several vessels, rather than risk a full cargo in one ship. For this reason adequate marking of goods was essential to avoid confusion and a mark on a bale established legal evidence as to ownership.

Marks were also used by craftsmen such as masons, armourers and goldsmiths. Ownership marks can be found on items such as furniture and there are even 'Swan' marks indicating ownership of swans!

This book details the collection of Toby Elmhirst who owned possibly the largest private collection of marks ever known.

A Genealogical Guide A Genealogical Guide

Ref: GBI8093
ISBN:

Written by J. B. Whitmore and published in four volumes by The Harleian Society.

This was originally intended to be a supplement to Dr Marshall's 1903 book of the same name, but grew into a major revision of the earlier work which documents sources of pedigrees published in books, biographies, topographical works and many other sources.

It should be noted that this book does NOT contain those pedigrees but it is invaluable as a finding aid.

Kindly loaned to the Project by The Harleian Society.
