Mayoress of Borough of Daventry Chain



Mayoress of Borough of Daventry Chain

Chain with links recording the mayoress's from 1917 to 1972. The chain was thought to have been the mayor's chain until upon closer inspection all names start with 'Mrs' and knowing that mayors have all been men during this period this was revised. M.B.M refers to Mary Bunting Marriot the wife of the Alderman Tom Harris Marriot who commissioned the chain.
