    Hello CW friends!!
    This would be the interior of the Searles & Edge leather covered hat trunk that I just posted.

    The interior is 100% original. and I plan to keep it that way. Again, I've never heard of this trunk maker and can find no information on them.

    So, if anyone out there can supply me with some information on this one, I'd be truly grateful.

    Update: A HUGE thank you goes out to our CW friend Celiene for her wonderful sleuth work and priceless information on the city of Lexington, KY, Mr. Searles and Mr. Edge. Thank you Celiene!!!

    Thanks for stopping in and having a look!

    Scott

      LEXINGTON, KY! 1838-9!

      Although Lexington was one of the earliest settlements of Kentucky, it was not until 1785, that it assumed the appearance of a village, its growth having been impeded by Indian warfare. At this time it consisted of three rows of cabins. The two outer rows constituted a portion of the wall of the stockade; these extended from the place, now known as Leavy's corner, to Jas. Masterson's house, at present occupied by Searles & Edge, on Main street. The intervals between the houses was stockaded; the outlet was a puncheon door, with a bar to secure it. The block-house commanded the spring, and a common field included the site of the present Court House.

      If you search for Searles on the second reference, you can even see who worked and/or boarded with them. Funny - there is a John Searles, but no James listed as living in Lexington.

      Edge is spelled Edge, Edg's & Searles & E's.

      Edge Benjamin, saddler, boards at Searle's. (Co-owner)
      Edge Phillip P. (Searles & E.) boards at Searle's. (I assume son.)

      Looks like James Searles was born 1787, died 1859.
