THE FOLLOWING IS NOTE SENT FROM A MEMBER- READ BELOW:

Quick FYI - not that it will help you sell it - Woolley and Sargant, earlier Woolley & Deakins, and before that, just Woolley, were sword cutlers in Birmingham for generations - the last of the Woolleys in that business was Thomas, and his youngest son, Thomas, later became a silversmith of some reknown. Thomas Sr. was, in British Parlance, a bit of a prat. His older three boys all left, refusing to work with him, and the second oldest came to America because he married a Catholic girl, and Thomas disowned/disinherited him. That son was Frederick E. Woolley - my great grandfather. Thomas Sr. was VERY wealthy, and the youngest son ended up with the business and all the 'family money' - it did him no good. He had a lousy life, and his children left him, as all but he had left his father. William, Thomas' father, made Benedict Arnold's naval sword, which he received when he returned to the Brits during the Revolution. That sword, because of who owned it, recently sold for 75k Lb
