The Irish Linen Board first appointed brown linen seal-masters to inspect and seal unbleached linen before it was sold at market. Soon however, there was scarcely a weaver who was not his own seal-master using a seal which included his name, civil parish and county. This seal was issued to John Johnston, Aghaderg, Co. Down.
