Frome Cloth Workers

The table below covers the people that we found in the course of our research. There will be omissions, as this document was not always at the forefront of our activities. But nevertheless it is a good start. We have noted the source although some prior knowledge is required.

References beginning DD are probably from the Somerset Archives
Gomez Smart  refers to a website (fromeresearch.org.uk) that was produced by David Smart  concentrating on research about the area.
Most of the other references are to the National Archives although others are identified. We also enjoyed time at the Gloucester, Wiltshire and Hampshire Archives; and, used document searches through the web to other archives.

We do intend to keep this updated, but that depends on our availability.  A spreadsheet version can be made available our email contact is info at woadtothis.com
