Earliest Provincial Agricultural Society

Post by Thomas Bewick » 03 Jan 2018, 14:18

Hello: I have a silver cup engraved: From the Agricultural Society to Mr Ralph Sanderson for Shewing the Best Stallion, Durham, March 31 1791.

Does anyone know when the Durham Agricultural Society began to meet or award prizes? I suspect that this cup could be early for an agricultural prize?
Is Durham I wonder, one of the earliest provincial agricultural societies?

Thank you
