Correction! It was of course Sir Robert Mansell, not Sir Richard!

Northumberland archives have a bundle of papers dating 1620-1759.  As part of the description they describe

Quote
articles of agreement to provide glassmaking syndicate (including William Tizacke of Newcastle) exclusively with 90 tons of “blewyglasseclay” from pit (s) at “Thirston Bearfield” over the next four years, to be delivered at their glasshouses called “the Westerhouses, Midlehouses, Easterhouse, Newhouse, and Howdenpannes”, as previously delivered there, at £140 per year plus costs of delivery or prop rate (should pit fail) at 31s.1 1/4d. Per ton delivered, one ton already on order to “Daniel Titterie of the Haining Shoar Glasshouse” to be the sole exception to this, 1694 (item 11).

That is assuming they did trade for the four years from 1694.

Hello glass aficionados and historians,

I am the author of "Glassmakers of Stourbridge and Dudley 1612-2002". I came upon this site of Angela's by accident while performing a google search on something completely different. I have to admit that the strain of devoting 20 years of my life to research led me to think that once I had published I needed to get my life back. I have had 20 years off and I am becoming revived in my passion for this fascinating subject. My children have grown up and I have a bit more time to spare. I see my name has cropped up on this board a few times, so I hope I may be able to help with some of the communication on the board.

I no longer have the massive pile of evidence I had accumulated. In 2011 I donated two pallet loads of paper and parchment to (what was then) Broadfield House Glass Museum. But my head is still full of the knowledge I accumulated.

Regards

Jason Ellis

Hello and welcome to the board Jason :)

Your book is a fantastic reference and used a lot in my house.

Any help you can give on any of the topics will be gratefully received and hopefully you'll enjoy the glass along the way.

LinzH  - thank you for posting the information

I found this link on Haining -shore glass house - page 46 (sometimes the spelling they previously used helps in searches so I changed it to shore :) )
https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=FvI9AQAAMAAJ&pg=PA46&lpg=PA46&dq=haining+shore+glasshouse&source=bl&ots=6w-EpBqb-l&sig=ACfU3U2zMxSTjewqDO0qYzaL-1fvFT9Gyw&hl=en&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjYqc7gspzvAhXITsAKHbwND7UQ6AEwAXoECAIQAw#v=onepage&q=haining%20shore%20glasshouse&f=false

South Shields is also spelt Sheilds in the book - it can take ages to try and find references online because of the spellings sometimes.

John Brand History & Antiquities of Newcastle, 1789. Page 46.

July 23rd, 1694, a glass-house appears to have been erected at Haining-Shore, now called the Bill-Key

I was reading that earlier today!  ;D

I've also just read this in the back of "The Glass Industry of Tyne and Wear.  Part 1: Glassmaking on Wearside"

Quote
c. 1696
Company of Glass Owners of Sunderland formed.  A syndicate of ten. Owned glass houses at Ayres Quay, Suddick (i.e. Southwick) and the "Panns", Bishopwearmouth.  All these are shown on Burleigh and Thompson's map for 1737. 
AYRES QUAY (OR AIRE'S KEY), DEPTFORD
Said to be the oldest bottle house on the river, although the Late J.W. Corder, Sunderland Antiqurian, thinks that Southwick was earlier.

It would make sense that they formed in 1696 with all the hoo-ha going on with the taxes.

The Newcastle glasshouses wrote a joint petition to parliament at the time.  Although I found reference to the petition I haven't been able to track down a copy.  It would be nice to think that the names of the manufacturers are included in it though.
