Buttons of Deptford

Hi, my name is Brian. I live in North Carolina in the United States. I was recently metal detecting on an and uninhabited Island on the coast called Cape Lookout. I found a button with the word Deptford on it. I’m assuming J Taylor was the Tailor who made it. I’ve been searching the web trying to find more information about this person and came upon your blog. I was wondering if anyone could help me find information on this person. How cool is it that this button made it all the way to North Carolina?

Hi, I can’t see that image on the website you mentioned. I looked under T and under other letters just in case.

Thanks for mentioning the credit Bill a user of the blog sent me the image. I'm waiting for Brian to send me his image and will post as soon as.

I’ve found it under J. I misunderstood last night, I thought the button pic was of Brian’s button. Thanks for your reply.
