Postby dognose » Thu Feb 22, 2018 3:36 pm

Court of Assistants, 28th February 1751

And then appears Mr. Watson, a general surveyor of the duty on wrought plate, and produces a written information against Mr. Swift, a knife-haft maker in Wood Street, for counterfeiting the Hall marks; and, he being withdrawn, it is moved and seconded that the Clerk inquire into the evidence against Thomas Swift for counterfeiting the Hall marks, and, if he find it sufficient to convict the offender, that he bring an action, and proceed against him to that effect; and the question being put, it is carried in the affirmative (nemine contradicente),- and ordered accordingly; and the Clerk is to acquaint the Standing Committee with his proceedings against the said Swift from time to time.
