Export Duty On Irish Wool And Cloth Petition

In 1739 the government debated the removal of export duty on Irish wool and cloth and several citizens of Newton Bushel sent a petition protesting against the removal. Following this the Vicary Family became involved in the wool industry and influenced growth. In 1786 after the death of Vicary his ten year old son and wife continued the wool trade.
