**Philip Horrobin`s Account
Books**

**1853 to 1880**

**Joyce Winfield** has very kindly loaned me a
number of books relating to Fernilee. Several are account
books for **Philip HORROBIN** - of varying size but originally
with a clasp. The first book, which begins in 1853 and details products
sold; who to and the cost. He seems to have sold cheese, hay
& pigs but particularly butter. I have extracted dates
(which are in the order of the book) & product where the
purchaser is shown. He also seems to act as a money lender and bank.
Later in the book, when money is given to him, HORROBIN details not
only who gave it but what bank the note was drawn on plus its serial
number. The second of the two books which begins in 1866 shows
only details about Bank Notes. For example:

**`June 18**** **Recvd
of **George GODARD** Two Five pound Bank of England notes No and
Dates as follows First No. 76164 Liverpool 4 May 1864 Second No.
