SYMM Joseph

A Northumberland inventor and patentee of Symm's Patent Thistle Cutter later marketed by his executors. This was a horse-drawn mower with wide-diameter cutting cylinder, which won medals at Alnwick (1890) and Morpeth (1893). Ransomes made a smaller version of this which is illustrated in their 1915 catalogue (see "Bents Cutter").
