Russian Flax/Hemp Bale Seals

Harrogate Museum and District

(with Markington below).

 

   This site is an ongoing project involving the daily finding and identification of Russian Lead Flax & Hemp Bale Seals and Lead Trading Tokens from the old disused Northern Flax Mills of Bentham Mills, West House Mill at Blubberhouses, the Little Patrick Mill and Aked's High Mill at West End and Folly Ghyll Mill in Thornthwaite... plus Kinghorn Mills in Fife, Scotland.    For many decades in the 18th & 19th centuries, Russia was by far the world's greatest exporter of flax stems via Archangel, St Petersburg, Kronstadt, Narva, Riga, Libau, Memel, Konigsberg, Pilau, Pernau, Revel, Tilsit and Windau and Great Britain was Russia's major customer.

  М.В.Р.Ж.Д  (M.V.R.ZH.D) Moskovsko Vindavo Rybinsky Railroad.

 Moskovsko-Vindavo-Rybinsky Railroad - Tsarskoselskaya Line Supply. Vitebsky Railway Station (formerly St. Petersburg, Tsarskoselsky, Moskovsko-Vindavo-Rybinsky Line, and Detskoselsky Railway Station). The wooden building of Tsarskoselskaya Railway Station was constructed in August-September 1837 by architect K.A. Ton, near the crossing of Zagorodny Avenue and Vvedensky Canal.  The first Russian train left the station on October 30,1837. In 1849-51 a stone railway station building was built in its place. In 1987, a model of the Provorny locomotive, which made the first railway trip in Russia from St. Petersburg to Tsarskoe Selo in 1837, was installed in a specially built glass pavilion on one of Vitebsky Railway Station platforms. Vitebsky Railway Station serves destinations in the Russian south. The photo is Poltava Station.

             
             
             
             

Markington, North Yorkshire

 Markington is a small village in the Harrogate District of North Yorkshire, situated just off the A61 between Ripon and Harrogate. Five miles from Ripon, Eight miles from Harrogate and two and a half miles from Fountains Abbey, Mention was made of the village in 937AD, where a mill was recorded as church property at ‘Mercinga-tun’. There are High and Low mills but no mention of flax. It is believed that Low mill, situated in the grounds of Markington Hall, was built by the Wilberforce family in the early 1800's. Low Mill was a fully working water mill; It predominantly produced animal feed for the local area with the water being supplied by a mill race split off from Markington beck. The original water wheel and workings remain virtually untouched. Water supplying the water mill was controlled by a sluice gate located to the rear of the smaller building. A further sluice gate was situated to the rear of Markington institute at the head of the mill race where it split off from the main stream.

other seals awaiting update

   Seals Mark 10 & 24 have an unusual crescent shape under the date. It is really the flukes of a ship's anchor wherein the Christian Growers/Owners of the flax or hemp anchored  their faith in Jesus Christ. It has nothing to do with Islam.  So initial D.H. Grower, Owner or Agent of the seal was an Orthodox Christian, but not necessarily the Port Inspector.
