This would be the business of William Mansfield, and later his son, Alfred Barton Mansfield. Alfred appears in the 1901 Irish Census as a 53 year old, City of Dublin born Merchant (Leather and Fancy), he is married to 49 year old, City of Dublin born Helen Jane. The couple live with their children, Helena Creeth 22, Dorothy Eva 12, Bertha Louise 10, and George Herbert 8 years of age. They reside at 32, Grosvener Road, Dublin and have two live-in servants. The family's religion was recorded as Church of Ireland.

The 1911 Irish Census describes Alfred as a Leather Goods Merchant. The family now reside at 11, Dartry Road, Dublin. The census notes that Alfred and Helen had been married for 33 years, had 8 children, of whom 7 were living.

Irish Church Records show Alfred Barton Mansfield, Merchant, and son of William Mansfield, Merchant, was married to Helen Jane Creeth, daughter of John Creeth, Merchant, at St. Anne's Church, Dublin, on the 26th September 1877. Neither had been married before.

CLAVEL JESSON

JESSON, CLAVEL (b.1821-d.1893) Engraver

Son of Thomas Jesson and Maria Jane Clavel, was born in Dublin in 1821, and baptized in St. Andrew's Church on 22nd October. He was educated in the Blue-coat School, and was afterwards apprenticed to James Kennedy Le Bas, engraver, of Anglesea Street. He worked chiefly as an engraver for the silversmiths in Dublin, and, at his death in 1893, was succeeded in his business by J. Rooney, his pupil, whose family still carries on the calling of silver and brass engravers.


Source: A Dictionary of Irish Artists - Walter G. Strickland - 1913


Clavel Jesson, the craftsman employed by Jacob Tweedall to engrave the hunting knife for H.H. Meer Ali Moorad (see above post), was noted as being a member of 'The Society for the Promotion of Irish Manufacturers and Industry' in 1852, his occupation being recorded as 'Engraver'.

In a report of a fire at Dublin in 1856 he was noted at Aston's Quay.

Clavel Jesson was the brother of Robert Jesson (b.1822), who worked as an engraver in D'Olier Street, Dublin, before migrating to America.

He was also noted as a subscriber to the 'Irish Distress Fund' in 1891, his address, likely his private residence, recorded as 1, Sallymount Avenue, Ranelagh, Dublin.

Clavel Jesson died on the 14th January 1893, he was buried at Mount Jerome Cemetery, Dublin.
