Frampton Cotterell home of the cowboy hat
Frampton Cotterell home of the cowboy hat
John Wayne never knew it but he owed a lot to Frampton Cotterell. So did Randolph Scott, Tom Mix and every other rootin' tootin' gunslinger who ever toted a shootin' iron through Dodge City. For one of the most enduring legends of the Wild West was born in the West of England ? The famous ten gallon hat - white for goodies, black for baddies - was invented in the old cow town of Frampton Cotterell. All the cowboy heroes on television should be wearing Christy's rather than Stetsons. It seems a bit bad, considering Christy won a legal battle to decide who invented the broad brimmed Western hat. Christy's famous hat factory in Park Lane, which once employed a quarter of Frampton Cotterell residents, is now a listed building and a spacious house. Christy's built their factory in 1812 in an area where hatting was already a major cottage industry. The main business was trading with the West Indies, making large brimmed felt hats for slaves harvesting sugar cane in the rainy season. The ten gallon hat should really have been known as a Christy - and might have been, but for a nifty bit of piracy. An American hat maker called J. B. Stetson liked the wide brimmed high crowned hat so much he started making his own. Christy's were furious. Bristol University lecturer John Moore, said: 'Few people know that the ten gallon hat was invented in Frampton Cotrerell but it's well documented in the records of the hatmakers who built and owned the factory last century J. B. Stetson fought a long patent case with Christy's - and lost. The result was that he had to pay a licence fee to market the famous Stetson hat' Stetson might have lost, but he won in the long term. That style of hat is known universally as a Stetson, and Christy's role is completely forgotten. So is the company's link with the Mounties. The famous pointy hat, later adopted by the Boy Scouts and a television lager commercial, was another Christy invention and is still in wide use across the world today. But again no one remembers who developed it. Christy's were also partly responsible for a much nastier sideline of history. The company used poisonous mercury in the felt making process, while keeping windows tightly closed to avoid the fine rabbit fur blowing away. The fumes so affected the workers that the saying as mad as a hatter' was born. Hat workers sometimes went 'as mad as a hatter' from the poisonous fumes from the feltmaking process. Lewis Carroll even picked it up for a character in Alice in Wonderland. But of all the Stetson wearers, cowboy film star Tom Mix was the crowning glory. On a visit to Bristol in 1938, he wore the biggest ( and silliest ) Stetson ever seen - at least a 20 gallon hat. A bit impractical for hiding behind rocks or saloon bar doors but the huge crowds thought he was wonderful. No one asked Christy's what they thought. All the cowboy heroes on television should be wearing Christy's rather than Stetsons. It seems a bit bad, considering Christy won a legal battle to decide who invented the broad brimmed Western hat. Hat Facts Frampton Cotterell was chosen for a hat factory because it had clean water, coal, skilled workers - and an easy supply of rabbit fur. The area was such an important centre that the Hatters union had its headquarters at nearby Watley's End. Felt hats were made from a mixture of fur, chopped wool, mercury and size. They were the only waterproof hats until oilskins were invented in the 1820s. The factory's best known product was the beaver - an ordinary broad-brimmed hat covered with beaver fur, imported from Canada through the Port of Bristol. The industry was killed off in 1871 by the new fashion for silk toppers and the rocketing price of imported beaver fur. At one time, the old factory was used as a home for Roman Catholic nuns. ' A ten gallon hat is often thought to be large enough to hold ten gallons of water. this is not true ( unless you have an exceptionally large head ). The gallon in 'ten gallon hat' derives from the Spanish galn meaning braid. So a ten-gallon hat is a hat with a braiding around the brim'. 1969 - Christy and Co Ltd went into voluntary liquidation. The Cowboy Hat and its history Stetson hats or Stetsons, often known simply as cowboy hats, refers to a brand name and not a type of hat. The John B. Stetson Company of St. Joseph, Missouri, founded by John B. Stetson (1830..1906, USA), is the manufacturer of some of the more famous variants of the cowboy hat: a felt hat with a tall crown and very wide brim. It functions to protect its wearer's eyes from the sun, and can also double as a water bowl. There are two versions of the history associated with the Stetson hat. The first is a version, that although the most widely held belief, is in fact based on legend. This version states that in the 1860s Stetson created a rugged hat for himself made from thick beaver fur felt while panning for gold in Colorado. According to legend, Stetson invented

Gold Mining - Liscomb River
The sign reads: "In March 1900, the Liscomb Falls Gold Mining Company Limited was incorporated with owners listed as: Robert Brownell of Truro, lumberman; W.H. Covert of Halifax, solicitor; Edward Brownell of Sheet Harbour, lumberman; and George Brownell of Moser River. Exactly where this company mined is not known. During the summer of 1900 gold claims were being staked in this immediate area and three or four men were reported to be looking for boarding places nearby. A Mr. Killiam, a millwright working for the Alfred Dickie Lumber Company (which operated in the vicinity) spent part of the winter of 1901-02 prospecting here with the assistance of a number of men. Also, a prospector by the name of McCleod had a cabin near the present chalets and worked in this area." Despite substantial gold deposits the history of the industry in Nova Scotia has been marked by peaks and valleys. Gold is found in two types of deposits: placer and lode. Placer deposits are usually found in gravelly stream bottoms and the mining and refining operations can be done on-site by means of washing and filtering. Lode deposits (including most of Nova Scotia's gold) are embedded in a vein of another mineral, such as quartz. Digging, drilling, blasting and then refining are necessary to refine and isolate the gold. This leads to intensive work and considerable cost. Many companies sprang up and then vanished due to poor mining methods and management practices as well as the high cost of mining compared to the price of gold and other obstacles. The scale of the mining operation here was very small in comparison with nearby mines and most or all seems to have been of an open-pit nature. The remains of some of the excavations can be seen here although the deposits of moss now cushion the impact that man once made."
