William Scot registered his mark, in accordance with the 1784 Act 24 Geo. III. Cap. 20*, with the Sheffield Assay Office on the 28th December 1807.


*Section 2.—And whereas it is by the said recited Act (of 1773, Vide supra) enacted, That if any working Silversmith, or Dealer in wrought Plate, or any Worker or Dealer in any other Metal plated or covered with Silver, shall strike, or cause to be struck, any Letter or Letters, upon any Vessel or other Thing, made of Metal, plated or covered with Silver, or upon any Metal Vessel, or other Thing, made to look like Silver, such person or persons so offending shall be subject to the Penalty therein mentioned ; and Doubts have arisen whether a Manufacturer of Goods plated with Silver can or may strike his Name upon such Goods, without incurring the said Penalty; and by reason of such Doubts the Manufacturers of Goods plated with Silver have been deterred from striking their Names upon plated Goods, whereby a proper Distinction betwixt plated Goods of the different Manufacturers is prevented, and all Emulation in that Branch of Business is destroyed; to the certain and manifest Prejudice of the said Manufactory: for obviating such Doubts, be it further enacted by the Authority aforesaid, That it shall be lawful for any Manufacturer of Goods plated with Silver within the said Town of Sheffield, or within One hundred Miles thereof, to strike, or cause to be struck, upon any Metal Vessel or Thing, plated or covered with Silver, his or her Surname, or, in case of any Partnership, the Name or Firm of such Partnership, and also some Mark, Figure, or Device, to be struck at the End of such Surname, or other Name or Firm; such Mark, Figure, or Device, not being the same, or in Imitation of any Mark, made use of by any Assay Office established by Law for assaying of wrought Plate, without being subject to any Penalty or Forfeiture for so doing ; any Thing in the said Act to the contrary hereof notwithstanding.

Section 3.—Provided nevertheless, That every such Surname, or Name, or Firm, as aforesaid, shall be in plain and legible Characters, and struck with One Punch only ; and every such Mark, Figure, or Device, shall, before the same is made use of, be submitted to the Examination of the said Company of Guardians of the said Sheffield Assay Office, and be approved of them at some of their publick Meetings, and registered in a Book, to be kept for that purpose; for which Registry there shall be lawfully demanded and taken, from any Manufacturer of plated Goods on whose Account such Registry shall be made, the Sum of Two Shillings and Sixpence, and no more.

Section 4.—And be it further enacted and declared. That in case any Manufacturer or Manufacturers of plated Goods within the said Town of Sheffield, or within One hundred Miles thereof, shall at any Time hereafter strike any Name, Mark, Figure, or Device, upon his plated Goods, which shall not have been previously registered at the said Assay Office for the said Town of Sheffield, or which shall have been previously registered at the said Office by any other Manufacturer of plated Goods, every Person so offending shall, for every such Offence, forfeit and pay, to the said Wardens, the sum of One hundred Pounds, to be recovered in like Manner as any Penalty or Forfeture is, by the said recited Act, authorised or directed to be recovered, and to be applied as any other Money is herein-before directed to be applied.
