Researching Measham Teapots

 

A fellow boater and blogger was interested in whether we had done any research into our recently restored Measham Teapot Emma. At present we have not done so, but now it has been restored and we are going to keep it, we may well do some research, however this may prove a little difficult as we only have the name “Emma Ross” and the date 1879 to go on.

However we may be more successful with our other teapots, which have more information on their plaques as follows:-

  • Mr & Mrs Mallender Orchard St. Newall
    Undated
  • Mrs H Mold. New End
    from Mary
    Undated
  • A present to Mr & Mrs Pinkard Tiffield
    from their son Thomas
    1884
  • Mr & Mrs Hickmough
    Warrington
    1882
  • James Ashwood
    Spinners Arms
    1881

I am not sure if the one from Thomas to his parents is Mr & Mrs Pinkard Tiffield, but more likely to be Mr & Mrs Pinkard of Tiffield, seeing there is a place called Tiffield in Northamptonshire.

I did try to do some online research on the Spinners Arms, but found nothing that I could relate to James Ashwood.
