Embroidery Sampler (Material Memory)

Year: 1796

Origin: Lancashire

Donated By: Phil Rose

Made by Anne Duerden in 1796, this embroidery sampler was likely  created to show Anne’s needlework abilities, to help her seek work in the textile industry. Anne would have been 14 when she made it. 

Born in May 1782 in Marsden, Anne was the 3rd of 14 children born to  John Duerden, whose brother Henry is the family link to Phil, who has  inherited this amazing piece of textile history.
