The City of Bath : The City Sword
The sword is two-handed, and two-edged, weighing 3.4 kg and measuring 163 cm. The 119 cm blade does not have a scabbard. It is a battle sword and would probably have been carried over the shoulder by a squire, as no arm would be long enough to draw it from a belt.
Inscription engraved on blade: To the Corporation of Bath: the gift of Robert Edmund Dickinson, Mayor of the City 1899-1900 on Coronation Day 1902. The sword is a reproduction of the Civic Sword known as the Bladud Sword. Originally belonging to the City of Bath, but now deposited in Oriel College, Oxford. Made by Wilkinson. Pall Mall, London
"Yet, as two hundred years earlier, there were also new arrivals, who had only recently made their money, usually from the sugar plantations of the West Indies or the slave trade. One of them was Caleb Dickinson, a Quaker merchant trading in Bristol who purchased Kingweston near Somerton in 1740. His son, William, soon followed gentry custom in the county, becoming a Member of Parliament, rebuilding Kingweston House and acting with the arrogance of power that characterised the nobility and gentry of England at the time, by diverting roads and removing a village in order to create a park. "
Graffin Prankard, a Quaker merchant, carried on his trade in eighteenth-century Bristol. Trading largely in iron, his ships travelled to both American and European ports.
