Thomas Weller Ledger

  • AR88
  • Collection
  • 1860 - 1867

Ledger of Thomas Weller, watchmaker and jeweller.

The ledger records Thomas Wellers business during his final years. His customers included many of the well-known individuals and institutions of Croydon and the surrounding area. His work mainly comprised clock and watch maintenance and repair, supply and repair of jewellery and silverware, engraving, etc. He supplied silver trowels for the laying of the foundation stones of the new Workhouse and St Matthews Church. He was contracted to wind a number of clocks on a weekly or daily basis, including those of the Town Hall, St Johns Church, Addiscombe College, St Jamess Church, Providence Chapel, and Croydon Literary and Scientific Institution. Most of his customers were local to Croydon, but others were further afield, eg Westerham, Hever, Brighton, London, and even New Zealand.

Weller died on 3 February 1867, and his business was wound up: the final pages of the ledger (approx pp894-902) appear to have been completed by his executors in settling outstanding accounts.

Wellers name is not given in the ledger itself; but the identification is confirmed by comparison of the entries for the maintenance of the Town Hall clock with those in the records of the Waste Land Trustees.

Survey sheet, and two plans, of rookeries in the CNHSS Regional Survey area. They are based on the original survey work of 1945, but include more detailed data than appears in the published papers.
