The above are excerpts.

Excerpts from customs records held by William Len, Controller of Customs for Prestonpans. File of impost vouchers, 1750-1756, held at The Scottish National Archives, Charlotte Square, Edinburgh, reference: CS96/4342.

The final record dated 14th February 1754 may be relevant to brewing, since the Symmont Water charged from Bremen is intended for Alloa, which was a centre of brewing.
