Ledger Transcriptions

Home » Ledger Transcriptions

Use the dropdown menu below to choose which ledger you wish to browse through. You can use the left and right arrow buttons to scroll through page by page, or type in a specific page number into the box below. Click on the magnifying glass to enlarge the ledger page, which can then be opened in a separate window for better viewing. One click on this will enlarge it for you.

Transcriptions are shown, where available, to the right hand side of a ledger page: click on the customer and the order will be shown as a 'drop down' page for that customer.

So far we have transcribed the order books: ledger 363/2, 363/3, 363/6, 363/7, 363/8, 363/9, 363/10. Ledger 363/3 only has the first 100 pages transcribed as after that it was used for different purposes. These other pages can be viewed.

We have also transcribed the cash books, ledgers 363/11, 363/12 and 363/13. The layout of these is very different from the orders. Click to view transcriptions. There are more cash book entries in ledger 363/7, but because the front of the book has been used for orders, these can't be transcribed, but they can be viewed.

Ledger 363/14 is the only surviving Wages Book, running from 1844 to 1856. Ledgers 363/5 and D7802/1 and D7802/2 are from the twentieth century, and include the years of the First World War.
