We currently have a great deal of B's father's possessions (consisting mostly of photos and equipment for performing eye tests) on the kitchen table. Amongst it was the below. Jonathan Sellers was B's great great grandfather. He started out as a "Bobbin and Shuttle Maker" but by the time of his death was being described as a "Timber Merchant".


A leather pouch with a broken clasp with the words `Jonathan Sellers' Mariners Lodge 249 stamped on it and a symbol I assume to be masonic

The Rules and Order to be Observed by the Brethren of the Mariners' Lodge No. 249 of the most ancient and honourable fraternity of Free and Accepted Masons.  Dated 1872-3.

The pouch with the rules sticking out of it next to a pair of white gloves and a blue and white masonic apron.
