These measures were the official Town of Sheffield imperial measures for a quart, half gallon and gallon in 1827. The rest of the set contains measures for gills, pints, pecks and bushels. They were kept by officials who oversaw the markets to make sure that standard quantities of produce were sold by the market traders. In 1825, the clerk for the markets, Mr William Farnsworth, was based at 3 Market Street, roughly where Fitzalan Square is today.
