Brick Making – 1649

Mr Barley says in The English Farmhouse that there was enough demand for brick s in the Isle of Axholme, Lincolnshire, to encourage men to make them anywhere, anyhow. William Occarbie of Crowle was presented to the manor court in 1649 ‘for making brick s on the common and selling them out of the manor’. Barley M. W.
