Musket found

In 1894 an old schooner was being broken up near Sheerness and beneath the inner skin of the hull quite a few weapons were found and amongst these were a splendidly made bell-mouthed flint-lock musket, the stock being marked with a representation of arm and leg fetters, and the name “Philip Steyne, Boston, Lincolnshire.”
