  ISABELLA GLASS SPOTT P.School East Lothian £175  
Most samplers make me smile, none more than Isabella Glass's small (15 x 20 cm) school sampler of 1895 worked at SPOTT School. Now I had not heard of Spott, a small village (so not much of a spot on the landscape !) near Dunbar where the Scotts lost an important battle against Oliver Cromwell in 1650. Now Spott has a number of other interesting facts. It was the location of the last executions of Scottish Witches in 1705 and In 1570 the minister of the church, John Kelloe, hanged his wife in the manse before delivering 'a more than usually eloquent sermon !.
Now Isabella was born in 1883 to Mary & Robert Glass an agricultural laborer.
