Annan plough

Post by JohnEDavies »

I have a reference of an Annan plough being introduced on a Welsh estate in the Vale of Clwyd in 1843. Does anyone know anything about this plough? I assume it was made in Annan.

I would suggest that your best source for this is:

The results of a quick newspaper search.

The Chester Chronicle on 29 Sept. 1843 reported that the annual meeting of Denbighshire and Flintshire Agricultural Society had been shown an Annan Plough. This suggests novelty, but it also appears to be the only reference in the newspapers in 1840-1844!
