John Smith, Papermaker of East Morton, 1794-1871

John Smith was a papermaker who provided technical expertise at the beginning of the company that became Joseph Town and Sons Ltd of Keighley and Leeds. John Smith, soundly trained in Scotland, spent all his working life in Yorkshire. He made a significant contribution to the Yorkshire campaign for the repeal of the iniquitous paper tax. After striking out on his own, in 1831, John Smith had a mixture of good and bad luck, made and lost a good deal of money, and ended his life in an obscurity, from which he has now, thanks to this monograph, been rescued.
