Brickmaking in the Pocklington area
John Nottingham has given his kind permission to place this article on the website. John and his cousin were both born in Haxby and are descended from the owners of the two largest brickyards there, 10 acres in total. John has researched the brickmaking of the Pocklington area following the discovery of his namesake in the 1879 trade directory on this website, who was a brickmaker. This article has already been through 2 previous iterations, in 2010 and 2014, including further research into the early centuries of brickmaking in and around Pocklington.
