Papermaking in Lincolnshire: 1600 to the present day

Paper and board manufacture was a minority industry in Lincolnshire, which started in the seventeenth century and still continues some four hundred years later. This booklet is designed as a stand-alone publication, which tells the general story of the craft in this beautiful East Midland shire county. However, it works best when read in concert with Hugh Nott's magnificently researched and illustrated Papermaking In Lincolnshire 1600-1900. In particular, this booklet updates work in Nott's publication, adding new research on several of the mills, including Caistor mill which was missing; it also brings the story up to date, correcting some errors in previous works and encompassing two mills from the twentieth century, before concluding with a modern enterprise which manufactures 3-D objects using a process similar to paper manufacture - Moulded Fibre. The booklet includes a short section on paper converting operations, and a chapter on Family History containing a detailed listing of names associated with paper mills operating in Lincolnshire, culled from Parish Registers and Census Returns, before concluding with the most detailed reference listing yet published, providing ample information for any Family, Industrial and Local Historians wishing to pursue further research.
