My Great-Grandfather (George Cottam), worked at the Kreenholm Mill from the 19th Century, and was then the Manager for many years leading up to the Revolution in Russia. The story passed down through the family is that my Grandfather and Great-Grandfather were eventually

smuggled out of Russia by their serfs who hid them in sacks, in 1917. Meanwhile my Grandmother and Great-Grandmother left on a ship that returned to England via Finland - carrying what silver they could inside their garments.
