The Plaque of Thomas Boulsover - May 1984

Thomas Boulsover was a eighteenth century cutler and the inventor of Sheffield Plate. There is quite a bit of information on Thomas and his activities both in print and on-line and so he does not feature as an article on my website. There is a brief reference to him in an article I posted a few years ago on St Paul's Church in Sheffield. Thomas and his wife were buried there but their grave has long disappeared together with the church

 

His home and works have also disappeared but in May 1984 a plaque was erected at near Wire Mill Dam. Here is a cutting from The Morning Telegraph dated 25th May 1984 describing the unveiling on the plaque
