    Yeandle Plough 
    • The Yeandle Plough was invented by blacksmith yeandle plowThomas Yeandle in Stratford and received its patent for "a certain new and useful improvement in mould boards for ploughs", as noted in the Commissioner of Patents Journal for July 9, 1872. The Reports of Commissioners to the British House of Commons commended Yeandle in its 1877 report for a "useful general purpose plough, well made saving of undue friction by a peculiar construction of underside and mould board; for steel sole of small ground surface; for peculiar form of landside allowing of considerable wear; (and) adjustable steel mould-board of good form."

      His blacksmith shop was originally situated behind the present Perth County jail. He later relocated his Yeandle Plough Company to Church Street. The plough won 1st prize at the Ottawa Provincial Exposition in 1875, and 1st prize at the Philadelphia Exposition in 1876.

      Our plough was used on the Reid farm near St. Marys1a
