Straightest English longbows l have ever seen, especially considering how long the pair have been shot, they were obviously taken well care of!!!

Great looking bows. Curious as to draw weights and whether there's any connection between heavy weight and straightness of the bows. In any case, just keep digging them out of the back of your closet Jacques. And let me know if you find one in the 50's that you're willing to part with. There's no such thing as too many ELBs.

Those bows are at least 150 years young!!! Made in England and distributed by F.H. Ayers of London, England!!! The lemonwood came from Cuba, before the isolation started!!! The grip material is woven, with design, like tapestry!!! Very, very well done to have survived being used for 54 years, when the owners passed on!!! His bow is 70"40#@28", hers is
66"25#@28" hers is shootable without question!!!
His has hairline fractures running up the back of the bow!! It could be repaired with 802 runny super glue, but honestly why? They are great examples of bowyer from the past!!!!!

Take a good look at those English Longbows, then revisit the Thompson brothers and "The Witchery of Archery" you can see where the influence of their equipment came from, enjoy!!!!

Seriously Jacques just open a museum and put these bad boys on display!. They history you have gotten a hold of is mind boggling.
