The Reigate Societies Mystery 'Branding Irons'

With over 60 years of history, the Reigate Society has acquired a moderate amount of documentation and sundry items. In and amongst all of this is a couple of, what look like, branding irons. We have no documentation about these and can only assume that they are actually for that purpose.


We were wondering if anyone can help us in identifying these items? Who originally owned them and was branding their actual purpose? Why are they relevant to Reigate? For the Society to possess these items, they must have some significance to the Borough.
