Remains of Thomasine Bonaventure's Chantry, Week St Mary, Cornwall. 24th June 1933

Thomasine Bonaventure was a local girl of humble background, who was married and widowed by a number of wealthy men. Surviving the plague, she later married John Percyval who became Sheriff of London in 1486 and then Lord Mayor of London in 1498. She died in 1539 aged 89. Throughout her life she made charitable donations to her beloved village of Week St Mary and to other causes. The site of Chantry and Grammar school pictured is just one such donation. Photographer: Herbert Hughes.

Pewter Porringer, Reading, Berkshire, England

Pewter porringer with a bouged bowl and a single Old English type ear. The owners' initials of B over H I are struck on the top of the ear. Dating from around 1690-1720, the back of the ear bears the mark (M416) of Richard Allum I of Reading (PS174). Commonly said to have been used for holding soft foods such as broth or gruel, contemporary evidence records the use of porringers for preparing foods and medicines and also for serving sauces. It is therefore likely that they were general purpose vessels. The rim has a diameter of 12.38 cm.
