From 'A History of the British Nation' by AD Innes, 1912

Thomas Sutton, who endowed Charterhouse School in London made much of his money from mining coal from land he owned in the Newcastle area. He was reputedly the richest man in Tudor England. Wollaton House, the enormous and extravagant Elizabethan mansion just outside Nottingham was built with money generated from coal mining in the area.

Henry VII and Trade

Tudor Mining Coat This idea changed with Agricola's publication of a book on mining, which equated mining to opening a fruit to see the goodness within. However, this idea only applied to metals such as tin and copper ore, and not to coal. It took a dose of inflation plus a shortage of wood to make people turn to coal as a last resort. Coal produces smoke and fumes and whilst there was wood, it was considered too dirty and overlooked as a source of fuel. In Tudor times coal began to be shipped short distances and used by the poor as an alternative to wood, but by the early 17th century, the shortage of decent timber for shipbuilding seemed to threaten Britain's existence, and coal became the only viable alternative for heating and manufacture.

A royal proclamation of laments the former wealth of 'Wood and Timber,' but by then mines had begun to provide employment, and there were even railways with horse-drawn carriages to bring the coal to the docks. Since it is now more than 70 years since Mr Innes's death in , we are able to share the complete text of this book with Britain Express readers. Some of the author's point of view may not be currently accepted by modern historians, but it is worth reading as a period piece of British attitudes at the time of writing.

As the reign of Henry continued, other aspects of textile production developed, but all on a small-scale. Linen was produced in Lancashire, while hand-knitted stockings was done in the Lake District and the Cotswolds.

Henry VII and Trade - History Learning Site

But woollen cloth was the dominant feature and continued to be so for many years. A few other commodities were exported but the records from the time show that England imported a great deal and placed her trading faith in woollen cloth. Lead and tin were mined and what was not required in England was exported — but this tended to be done on a small-scale when compared to the growth witnessed in the wool trade.
