Thomas Bore - tinplate worker
« on: Tuesday 04 August 20 05:29 BST (UK) »
Hi,

I was wondering if someone would be able to help me please. I have Thomas Bore b. about 1757 who became a Master Tinplate Worker and took on many apprentices between 1785 and 1805 in St Paul Shadwell, Middlesex.

Is there somewhere he must register as a Master before taking on apprentices? Also, I have gone through all the records to do with master and apprentices and I can't seem to find where he may have been an apprentice himself in any part of Britain.

I would appreciate any help offered as I'm stuck.

Thanking you all.

Try contacting someone from this link

http://liverydatabase.liverycompanies.info/networks/627/index.html

It is for this company

The Worshipful Company of Tin Plate Workers alias Wire Workers

They may know where you can look for records.

The other possibility is the London Metropolitan Archives - link below

https://search.lma.gov.uk/SCRIPTS/MWIMAIN.DLL?GET&FILE=[WWW_LMA]intro.htm

It is temporarily closed at the moment but you should be able to find out when they are reopening again and there may be a means of making contact to make an initial enquiry.

Hi,

Thank you so much for that. I'll give the Livery link a go. MLA isn't open until September and then only for essential records. I'm in Australia so will have to get someone to have a look for me if I find something.

I wonder if Thomas Bore came from Herefordshire.  There’s very little online for that county at the moment, so his records might not show up.

It may be worth nudging this up once the London Metropolitan Archives reopen, as they may hold some answers, or clues.

They hold papers of John Pugh, as executor and trustee of Thomas Bore, which include:

1768 - Copy probate of Will of William Bore of Pembridge, Herefordshire

Copies of birth certificates of Mary Bore 1790; Sarah Bore 1793 and death cert. of Mary Pugh 1847

1734 Grant by Mrs.Martha Boare to son William Boare of her personal estate at Herefordshire.

Hi,

The LMA holds a lot of records pertaining to the Pugh and Bore family - some are inheritance disputes.

I have a copy of Thomas Bore's Will - it's a bit hard to read but he owned a lot of houses/property around Middlesex and Essex area. I have his DC 1845. I originally thought he may have been from Ribbesford, Worcestershire but Herefordshire sounds more likely.

I'm in Australia, so I'll have to see if I can get a researcher to look a few items up for me but they aren't cheap to do so. I did follow up on the link to Worshipful Tinplate Co. and was sent a further link to look at but this place is shut too.

I found a copy of each of the Bore children BC - Thomas 1788, Mary 1790, Sarah 1793.

Sarah married John Pugh - I have both their DC. Oddly both died in the workhouse - from Cerebral Decay so maybe family didn't want to look after them.
