BROWN & CLARK11, Richard Street, Hockley, Birmingham
Brown & Clark - Birmingham - 1858
William Brown & John Cook Clark entered their mark with the Birmingham Assay Office on the 3rd November 1851.
William Brown and John Cook Clark dissolved their partnership on the 24th June 1862.
John Cook Clark was also noted as being in a partnership with George Macdonald Hazelton that was dissolved on the 1st January 1878.
He is perhaps the same John Cook Clark that registered with the Sheffield Assay Office.
John Cook Clark died on the 21st May 1892. His executors were noted as his wife, Susannah Clark, and the silversmiths, Henry Clark, and William Clark Manton.
This is perhaps the same William Brown who was part of a very short lived partnership with Bernard Wheelwright (see earlier post).
