Hi, does anyone know anything about a flute maker/company from Newcastle - J Preston or James Preston?

I have an 8 keyed cocuswood. I've not met anyone who plays one and it's always annoyed me that I can't find any information about it!

All I have to go on is the stamp saying -

J. Preston
23 Collingwood St
Newcastle On Tyne


Cheers
F

Post a photo. At least it will help with deciding whether Preston was making flutes or just stamping them.
I don’t have Langwills but it’s worth a look in there as well.

The New Langwill Index has a John Preston with various London addresses from the late 1700s to early 1800s, also joined by Thomas Preston toward the end. But there is no mention of any Newcastle addresses.

It is certainly a beauty.
