Nets used in cooking

I am always looking for more uses for nets.  I recently came across this article that mentioned their use in cooking.  I know I can recreate such a net if I can find more details.  I have been to open air seafood restaurants in New Englans where the cooks put lobsters, clams and mussels in a net bag.  A draw string allows the cooks to put the bag in a pot of boilling water and take out the bag when cooking is done.  I would like to find documentation of this method in 17th or 18th century to add to my net making demonstrations.  Are there any food historians here.  Thanks in advance.  Tony
