Stephen & Carol Huber: 17th - 19th Century Needlework

needlework sampler from Huber by Bancroft of MA

Jane Bandcroft
Antique needlework sampler
Dunstable, MA dated 1830

Jane Bancroft stitched this unusual family  register/ memorial sampler in 1830 at the age of 23 in Dunstable, Massachusetts.  The memorial is to her sister Martha Bancroft born in 1816 and died in 1817.  Interestingly, years later, it was probably Jane who stitched in the death dates of her siblings on this family heirloom. Jane was one of ten children born to Jonathan Bancroft and Sarah Taylor.  She married Isaac Cummings, a stonecutter, in 1837, and they had two children.

Silk on linen: 17 x 17 ¼ inches sight.
