Surrey Record Society, Vol XXXVI. Gunpowder Mills: Documents of the 17th and 18th Centuries, edited by A G Crocker, G M Crocker, K R Fairclough and M J Wilks, 2000

£5.00
By the 1540s, England had begun domestic production of gunpowder at Rotherhithe on the Thames. Surrey remained a prominent county for its manufacture and in the late 17th century the powder mills at Chilworth were by far the largest in the country. This volume reproduces a deed of sale and inventory of Carshalton Gunpowder Mills, 1661, an inventory of William Buckler, 1678, detailing his powdermills at East Molesey, Wandsworth and Faversham, an inventory of Thomas Pearse and Company, 1753, relating to the mills at Chilworth and Faversham, and a letter book of William Tinkler, 1790-91, the then owner of the Chilworth mills. The introduction provides a brief history of the manufacture of gunpowder to the end of the 18th century and a detailed, illustrated, description of the manufacturing process.
