An apparently unrecorded handbill for a three-lot auction for land and occupying buildings in Thornhill, near Dewsbury, in the West Riding of Yorkshire in 1778, then in the possession of Thomas Bingley.

This notice of the sale, to be conducted 'at the House of Joseph Lodge near the Church in Thornhill', does not mention the name of the auctioneer - but a note to the foot directs interested parties to ‘enquire of Mr. Sykes in Dewsbury’.

We could not locate any other eighteenth-century printed sale notices for Thornhill, however ESTC T216988 is a similar format, also referring to Sykes of Dewsbury, advertising a sale in Halifax.
Not in ESTC.
