 Russian Flax/Hemp Bale Seals from

Dundee and District

(58 seals known to date with 0 seals awaiting translation as of 21st October 2020)

The object of this page is to collect as much information as possible relating to the flax trade in Dundee

hoping to find some correlation between the flax bale seals and the actual mills where they were used.

    About PeaceHavens - This database is an ongoing project involving the daily finding and identification of Russian Lead Flax Bale Seals from the disused 18th/19th century Flax Mills of the Industrial Revolution in the UK. For many decades in the 18th & 19th centuries, Russia was by far the world's greatest exporter of these flax stems via Archangel, St Petersburg, Kronstadt, Narva, Riga, Libau, Memel, Konigsberg, Pilau, Pernau, Revel, Windau and Tilsit and Great Britain was Russia's major customer. Every bale of flax stems was fastened together with a lead seal by a quality control inspector. The discarded stems of the flax with seals still attached were prized as fertilizer by local farmers and were spread onto the land mixed with night soil manure... where they are being found today.

Dundee's most famous export was the word "Heckler".

   The flax hecklers of Dundee established a reputation as the most radical and stroppy element in what was a famously radical town and by 1800 were already operating as a powerful trade union, to the extent that in 1809 a local employer noted that they were to some extent in control of the trade, dictating wages, conditions and bonuses (mostly alcoholic). The Heckling Shop, said another observer, was frequently the arena of violent harangue and ferocious debate. One heckler would be given the task of reading out the day's news while the others worked. When they moved from factory floor to public meeting, they then fired off interjections designed to tease or comb out truths that politicians might prefer to conceal or avoid. Thus heckling entered the world of political debate, combining an incisive comment or question with spontaneous wit - quick-fire challenges enjoyed by those speakers who could deal with them and amuse their audience with a ready riposte.

Russian Lead Flax/Hemp Bale Seals from

Dundee (DUN) McManus Galleries & District

  Flax-spinning by machinery was first tried in Dundee, in a small mill built at Chapelside, by Messrs Fairweather & Marr, about the year 1793. The machinery was propelled by a ten horse power steam-engine. A second mill, of about the same extent, was built soon afterwards; but though both were kept going for some time, the element of success was wanting, and the enterprise was abandoned for a time. In 1798 five spinning mills, having an aggregate of sixty horse power and 2000 spindles, were erected in various parts of the town. One of these—the Bell Mill—was considered to be a gigantic concern at the time, the building and machinery having cost about £17,000. The early years of this century were disastrous to the trade, owing to the foreign markets being in a state of stagnation, arising from political complications and war. In 1811 only two spinning mills continued in operation, and the Bell Mill, which had come to a stand, was offered for sale. Between that time and the year 1822 a great change took place in the district. In 1822 seventeen flax-spinning mills were in operation in Dundee, all of which were driven by steam-engines, representing in the aggregate 178 horse power. About 2000 persons were employed, and the number of spindles going was 7944. In the neighbourhood of Dundee there were thirty-two spinning mills, containing 6978 spindles. The mills in operation in Dundee and neighbourhood in 1832 were driven by engines of 800 horse power, and the yearly consumption of flax was 15,600 tons, which produced 7,488,000 spindles of yarn. 3000 persons were employed, and the capital invested in machinery was estimated at £.240,000. In 1846 there were thirty-six spinning mills in Dundee, with a motive power equal to 1242 horses, while the number of spindles was 71,670. Five years later the number of factories was forty, but some of these were devoted to power-loom weaving.
  Experiments were made with the power-loom in Dundee so early as 1821, but the result does not appear to have been favourable to the introduction of that machine. Messrs W. Baxter & Son built a factory in Lower Dens, into which they proposed to introduce ninety power-looms; but they appear to have had misgivings as to the practicability of weaving by power, and did not carry out their intention. In an account of Dundee written in 1833, it is stated that " power-looms have not been employed here, or at least not to any advantage, and they are understood to be entirely laid aside." In 1836 Messrs Baxter built a power-loom factory at their Upper Dens Works, and that was the first establishment of the kind in Dundee. Three other power-loom factories were erected soon after, but for a considerable time there was no addition to the number.
   At the start of the 19th century St Petersburg was Dundee's most important trading partner with 28 vessels arriving from Russia in 1815. This trade was mainly flax and remained important throughout the century but the raising of prices and poorer quality led to a relative decline. By 1829, imports of flax and hemp from St Petersburg were around 80000 cwt but this was half that coming from Riga. The same pattern can be seen in Arbroath. If flax trade decreased, it was replaced by animal skins with more than 1400 reaching Dundee from St Petersburg in 1829 on the 35 ships docking from that port. The number of ships more than doubled by 1836. St Petersburg was one of the few European ports to which Dundee exported in the early 19th century with three of four vessels sailing each year. Most of the figures for St Petersburg - Dundee trade in the 19th century combine the figures for St Petersburg and Kronstadt. St Petersburg was an awkward port to enter, nothing deeper than 8ft 9in could pass the bar so the larger vessels, which could not sail up the river Neva, were loaded and unloaded at Kronstadt and shipped upstream on shallow draught barges.

      The 1300s and 1400s saw the steady growth of Dundee, fuelled largely by trade with Baltic ports. Town walls were built in 1545, but they did little to protect Dundee from the English fleet, who bombarded the town in 1547, destroying much of it. The second half of the 1700s saw the city start to grow again, and the population more than doubled as imported flax started to fuel a linen industry. Meanwhile the harbour was improved, and four whaling ships began to operate from Dundee.
The city is known for being built on "Jute, Jam and Journalism". 1797 saw James Keiller & Son set up a jam factory in Dundee, while in 1801 the Dundee, Perth and Cupar Advertiser was established. By 1835 Dundee had 36 steam powered flax spinning mills, employing a significant proportion of the 40,000 population. Meanwhile life expectancy in this heavily polluted city had shrunk to 32 years, just two-thirds of the average in Scotland at the time. 1835 also saw the first imports of jute from India, which then started to replace European flax for carpet backing and for sacks: important in a world in which almost everything was carried in sacks. Railways and trams arrived in the mid 1800s, and by 1860 Dundee was producing vast quantities of linen for sailcloth and jute for sacks. In that year the textile industry employed over 35,000 people out of a total population of just over 90,000.

Jute. At its peak in the 1860s and 1870s the jute processing industry in Dundee employed some 50,000 people in over 60 factories scattered across the city. The Verdant Works lies just to the west of Dundee city centre. It was once home to three steam engines running 70 power looms and 2,800 spindles. And 500 people were once employed preparing and spinning jute here and weaving it in another factory across the road. So why did jute become so important to Dundee in the mid 1800s? Well the city was already home to a textile industry that could easily be adapted to the new raw material, and to workers who could quickly be retrained to process it. And flax supplies from the Baltic were becoming increasingly problematical. Meanwhile the whale oil needed to soften jute was readily available in the city; the East India Company was looking for new markets for its jute; and Dundee could build the ships needed to transport the jute from India at speed, and the products to every corner of the globe. Jute went into a decline from 1914, mostly because it could be processed more cheaply in India.

How the seals got

into the fields

 

The discarded stalks of the flax

with a bale seal still attached

were highly prized as fertilizer

by local farmers and they were

 spread on to the land mixed

 in human & animal excrement.

 Dutch Customs House Tax Seals

 are a common find throughout

 the country and several have
been found in Aberdeen district.

The obverse has a Crowned Dutch

shield bearing the rampant lion of

Holland while the reverse has a

 number of the customs post and

 the letters R & A which means

Regten en Accynsen

(Customs and Excise).
 Some of these seals would be

associated with flax but they

were used for a variety of

of imported goods, hemp,

tallow, manure, linen goods.
