In trying to do some more searching, I found this blog (dubious source), the writer of the blog seems to date the below cypher to the mid 1700s, but believes it is likely datable to the early 1700s.

Any objection to combing this and the other two topics? A suggested title that covers everything would be good, too. (Or you could combine them. It's easy to do.) I like combining all this stuff from the past because then everything is easier to access.

Some topic necromancy, as this has been on my mind a lot for a possible small project I will likely never get around to... But I found the below linked item, family business ran from mid-17th century through to the 19th century. So who can say which end of those 200 years this merchant's mark is from.
