Flaggoners from Farnham

Before I start, I need to clarify what is included in this book and what is not, because I would hate you to buy it and then complain that there was nothing on … or …. The volume looks explicitly at the history of the names on stoneware flagons and bottles in the 19th and early 20th centuries in Farnham, Surrey and Aldershot, Hampshire. It does not look at the manufacture of these products, nor does it talk about their makers. Largely it does not look at glassware used in the towns either, and thus, deftly avoids glass bottles.
Having mentioned all the negatives (a terrible way to start any advertising blurb!), it does aim to look at the users of stoneware, by which I mean it looks at the people, families, and companies who put their names on the containers. The work is an exercise into the history of the traders in the area.
