Hi,

I am the new owner of "Wait and See", Crowther and Johnson Burrell Showmans Engine, I was wondering if anyone had any information on the engine, or the history.

Kind Regards

Jack

Well it has been a couple of years and i hope my Crowther relative are ok. I have had a look recently on ancestry to see if any further info has appeared on our family. I found very little new unfortunately maybe we were so thorough first time. I did find a bit on Azubah Johnson who married Ben Crowther. I think her family is from Lincolnshire as there are alot of that name in east Lincolnshire. The name means desolation or wasting. It comes from the Jewish community that was chased put of Lincoln in the 12-13c. Some of her siblings are born out that way .
And Wait and See the traction engine once owned buy Herbert Johnson and Joe Crowther is being refurbished maybe for next year.
Cheers.
