This booklet focuses on Quaker women, engaged in the cloth trade in Cullompton and its hinterland, named in minutes of the Cullompton Friends women’s meetings from 1719-17731. Evidence of businesses associated with most of these women’s families has been found and a strong correlation is indicated with family serge-making.

Woollen cloth was produced at a number of inland towns in the Exe and Culm valleys, including Exeter, Cullompton, Tiverton, Wellington and Uffculme, whilst Topsham was the major port for serge export.
