JOHN MUCKLESTON

Solicits the attention of the public to the peculiar excellencies of the above sauce, which upon trial will be found superior to any ever offered. It possesses a rich and piquant, yet not predominant flavour, is a most desirable ingrediant for Made Dishes; Meat and Pigeon pies; and excellent sauce for Fish, Game, Poultry, Steaks, Chops etc and with Cold Meat an exquisite relish.

The above celebrated sauce has, from the time of its introduction, been steadily progressing in public favour, and is now patronised by the nobility and leading families of the kingdom, and pronounced by epicures to be the only good sauce. Price 1s per bottle.

Sold by

Muckleston, High Street Shrewsbury and

Mary SalterServant14HousemaidCardington

She does not show on the 1881 census records.

There was a Mary Muckleston who died in Shrewsbury age 69 in 1868 - could this have been her? - if so she would have had her last child age 51

The only other possibility from the GRO indexes is a Mary Muckleston(e) who died in 1855 and the death was registered in Wolverhampton.
