Purchase of share in Lime Kiln

On the 2nd of March 1870, Mary Harries, the wife of David Harries, purchased a share in a Lime Kiln from Moses Raymond.
Moses Raymond and David Harries married two sisters, Mary and Jane, who were the daughters of John Davies Esquire. There was therefore a close relationship between the Raymond and the Harries families.
It was Moses Raymond who built Ardwyn House and Mary Harries who later owned it.

In 1870 there were at least four lime kilns on the shore of the harbour. The remains of two are still visible today at the bottom of the Slade. A further two have long disappeared but were in line with the footpath which leads from the Slade to T S Skirmisher.
