Welcome to the Home Pages for the Society of Brushmakers' Descendants!

The Brushmakers Society is reputed to be England's first trade union. This article outlines the research that led to my forming the S.B.D.
It was first published in Family Tree magazine in 1993 and the information it contained was so little known, many people wrote to me asking for a Historical Society of some kind to be set up for those interested in, or descended from brushmakers.
