John Taylor (1779 – 1863) was Britain’s foremost mining engineer of his time, and founder of the company John Taylor and Sons, which had mining interests widely across Britain and Ireland and elsewhere in the world. The directors of the Greenwich Hospital commissioned him to report on their mines, associated works and mining leases on Alston Moor. The report was printed and the copy transcribed here is in the Thomas Bell papers in Newcastle City Library.
