HENRY REES

London


A jeweller named Henry Rees was found guilty at the Middlesex sessions on Monday of stealing jewellery valued at £50, the property of Charles Robertson, a page in the service of the Queen. It was stated that the prisoner obtained admission to the prosecutor’s rooms in Buckingham Palace on pretence of getting a clock to be repaired, and stole a sapphire ring, gold pin, and a pair of gold solitaires. On being arrested, he admitted the offence, and explained how he had disposed of the property. He was sentenced to six months’ hard labour.

A. BROMET & Co.

46, New Road, Whitechapel, later, 37-39, Jewin Street, London


HEAVY FAILURE IN JEWELLERY TRADE

A meeting of the creditors of Mr. Emanuel Levi, trading as A. Bromet and Co., 37, 38, and 39, Jewin-street, E.C., convened by Messrs. Golldberg Barrett and Newall, solicitors, was held at Salisbury House on Friday, when a statement submitted showed gross liabilities £61,770, of which it is expected £38,207 will rank for dividend against free assets on paper £22,207, or a heavy deficiency of £16,000. Mr. Horace Barrett, who appeared on behalf of Mr. Levi, submitted an offer of 10s in the £ at three, six, nine and twelve months, the last instalment to be secured to the satisfaction of the principal creditors.


Source: The Financial Times - 12th July 1909

A. Bromet & Co. were established by 1878 by Abraham Bromet. Bromet retired in 1890, and the business passed to the remaining partners, Emanuel Henry Levi, Emanuel Hyam Cohen and Samuel Harris, who were later joined by Joseph Schneiders. This partnership was dissolved in 1900, leaving Emanuel Levi as the sole partner.

The firm entered two marks with the London Assay Office, 'AB&Co.', contained within an oblong punch on the 4th June 1892, and 'A.B&co.', contained within an oval punch on the 11th January 1902.

H.A. BYWORTH & Co.

32 & 34, Clerkenwell Road, later, 19 & 21, Heddon Street, Regent Street, London

H. A. Byworth & Co. - London - 1959


The bold coup of the jewel gang in cleaning up on the premises of H. A. Byworth & Co., the Heddon St. diamond mounters and dealers in precious stones has caused no little consternation to the jewelry trade here. The very audacity of the theft has demonstrated to the jewelers and to Scotland Yard the sort of versatile organization this jewel gang really is. Messrs. Byworth estimate their loss at £100,000 and a reward of £10,000 has been offered for information leading to the apprehension of the thieves. The plans for the robbery were well laid and the members of the gang who carried out the theft well versed in science. The basement of the jewelry premises was cleaned out over night previous to handing over to new tenants. Members of the gang, it is thought, secreted themselves. A powerful oxyacetylene flame was used to eat a way through the great safes. Three heavy cylinders of oxy-acetylene wrapped in linoleum were left on the premises by the gang. Rolls of linen and canvas had been used to erect a screen in order to shield the flame from the cylinders. A quantity of rubber piping also was discarded. Canvas water buckets were used and sand was scattered under the safes to prevent the molten metal setting fire to the floor. The work of burning open the first safe occupied several hours. Inside two keys were found which opened a large Ratner safe in an adjoining workroom stored with gold, platinum and uncut diamonds. The safe containing the precious stones was divided off into little drawers each of which contained stones mounted in wax and upon which the jewelers were working. These included diamonds, emeralds, sapphires and pearls. The thieves took the immense trouble of extracting each stone from its wax setting. Scotland Yard has taken over the wax settings and hopes to get finger print clews from them. A third safe was untouched. Large quantities of platinum in sheet-plate form and unfinished gold were taken. In fact, so much raw material was carried away that the 50 skilled jewelry experts employed by the firm are out of work until new supplies can be obtained. Scotland Yard is looking for the motor lorry that carried the oxy-acetylene cylinders and the cement and linoleum and wood used for the canvas frame and a net has been flung over all garages within a radius of 12 miles from the robbery.

Source: The Jewelers' Circular - 19th July 1922

The business was established in 1880 by William Van Walwyk, who was joined in 1881 by Henry Alfred Byworth. The pair severed their partnership in 1886, with Byworth continuing and taking a new partner, Alexander Frederick Klean.


The firm were noted as exhibitors at the British Industries Fairs of 1922 and 1947.

Notice is hereby given, that the Partnership heretofore subsisting between us, the undersigned Alexander Frederick Klean,. Roy Michael Klean, William Tasker Byworth and Eric William Byworth, carrying on business as Diamond Merchants and Jewellers at 19 and 21 Heddon Street, Regent Street, under the style or firm of H. A. BYWORTH & CO. has been dissolved by mutual consent as from the thirty-first day of December, 1937, so far as concerns the said William Tasker Byworth. All debts due and owing to or by the late firm will be respectively received and paid by the said Alexander Frederick Klean, Roy Michael Klean and Eric William Byworth. The said business will be carried on in the future by the said Alexander Frederick Klean, Roy Michael Klean and Eric William Byworth.–As witness our hands this 28th day of January, 1938.

R. M. KLEAN.
