  • The Vinton Memorial "t Joshua Foote was in 1650 an ironmonger in London. After that he came to New England, and d. in Providence, R. I., Oct. 1655. See his Will on Kccord, Suff Prob. In the Inventory of Joshua Foote's Estate. Nov. 1655."
  • The ESTABLISHMENT of the IRON INDUSTRY in AMERICA The recruitment of skilled workmen was not easy.  (See fig. 2, “Joshua Foote to John Winthrop, Jr.” in which Foote, a London ironmonger, reported that he had secured three workmen, one  founder accompanied by his son, but that three others had run away).[3]  Subsequent to Winthrop’s departure from England, Foote wrote him that no bloomery man[4] was available at all (see fig. 3, “Joshua Foote to John Winthrop, Jr.).[5] In this second letter Foote’s facetious suggestion was that Winthrop “join all [his] workmen’s heads together and see to build up bloomeries.  A smith after a little teaching will make a bloomer man.”[6]
