The WEAVERS of Irvine in 1862.

Transcribed by Linda Nordby


It is written on a columned form listing the weaver and their address. There are many that are crossed off the list, my thoughts from looking at the form is that the cross offs may have not been in need of the coal, but that is just speculation on my part. Any that are in the cross off category I will identify with an asterisk*

There were 4 loads of coal issued to the others.
