Title: The papermakers of Snodland c. 1740-1854
Abstract: A survey of people known to have owned or worked at Snodland paper mill c. 1740-1854, based on documentary evidence from registers, censuses, parish accounts, etc., intended to supplement previous studies which were based rather on official returns and deeds. Attention is drawn to the influence of some owners in establishing non-conformist worship locally and the attachment of many workers to this.
