Note on Husband: Thomas CRESWICK - shared note

From the History of Old Sheffield Plate - Frederick Bradbury-


"Particular mention should be made of the mark, the cross arrows, registered by T. & J. Creswick in the year 1811 ~ It is most often to be met with on the larger articles of plate of the later period. The mark itself is not as a rule displayed in a very conspicuous place. On removing the nozzle from a candlestick, the centre light from a candelabra, or on thecap inside a dish cover, it very frequently meets the eye of the observer.

The old plated goods bearing this mark are invariably of excellent workmanship, as is the case with the hand, bell, sun, etc., etc.previously noted. Creswick's mark has also been found on articles in conjunction with unauthorised impressions from other punches ~ ~ (This mark which seems almost too large for a workman's mark ~ ~ was taken from a candelabra of a very late period.)

Creswick is a name associated with the silver and plated trade of Sheffield from the earliest times until comparatively recently. A Richard Creswick was formerly connected with the writer's firm, being in partnership with Matthew Fenton before the year I773 (see page 37). The family of Creswick is one of the oldest in Sheffield, being resident inthe district for nearly six centuries. T. J & N. Creswick were continuing the old process of plating as late as I85I, when the excellence of their wares won a prize medal at the great Exhibition (see page I4I). But in course of time their valuable clies were dispersed, and the mark i~ is no~,v used by W. Hutton Sons, its present owners, on electro plate. J Love & Co.'s mark is often found on plated tankards made between the years I785 and I805. The mark was also very regularly used by this firm when making all kinds of hollow-ware. ~ Gainsford's elephant's head is a very striking looking mark, often to be found on communion plate, heavily mounted waiters and close plated goods made in the early part of the I9th century. It was registered in the year I808."

Titbits relating to Thomas Creswick...



Henry Rodgers.--A great many of the best known legal businesses in thecity have descended from father to son through many generations, and this was observed in connexion with Messrs. Rodgers & Thomas when Mr. Henry Rodgers died in 1882, at the age of 67, at Broomfield. He was the youngest son of Mr. Robert Rodgers, founder of the firm in 1800, and after hisfather's death became partner with his brother, the firm taking the style of T. W. & H. Rodgers. In 1859 Mr. T. W. Rodgers retired, and in 1860, Mr.Henry Rodgers took in his nephew, Mr. Arthur Thomas, and thus formed the firm of Rodgers & Thomas, the senior partner retiring in 1872. He hadmarried, in 1846, Mary, daughter of Thomas Creswick, of Ecclesall Grange.

Hello Sheena,

A search for Thomas Creswick at finds an entry for him in the Ancestral File & IGI with his birth, marriage & death data, as well as entries for his father, James Creswick and Thomas' sons, James & John. I know one has to be very careful with records made by LDS church members (as are these Creswick records) but it gives you a starting point - also, in this case, the submitter's name & address is given so you may be able to contact her & obtain source documentation.

Good luck,

Barry in frosty(but sunny!) Tasmania, Australia.
