I will be adding the historical information when I find or are sent it, but this project is a very big one, and I do not know when or where the information will come from.

Hi, I saw your site online (very interesting). I have been researching an old pewter tankard I have which is inscribed, "W. Porter. Galley Hill, Swanscombe." Amazingly there is a picture of the same William Porter on your site! I have attached some photos you can add to your site.

All the best, Mark Mullins.
