*** Sugar Refiners & Sugarbakers

It is generally agreed that the sugar trade began in the UK, in London, c1544, with two cane sugar refineries .... today there is barely one.
In between, a vast number of individuals and companies have come and gone, in an industry, which until the 20c, was a notoriously labour intensive, hot, exhausting, and dangerous place to work.
Many German migrants worked in the industry; some stopped off in the UK and worked as labourers in order to earn the money for their fares to N America.

A database, of over 44,000 entries, of some of those involved in the cane sugar refining industry, mainly in the UK, 16-20C.
Additional information may be available from the original sources, or from the compiler, who will also be pleased to receive further contributions to the database.

Happy to help where I can.
