WADE, WINGFIELD, ROWBOTHAM & CO
The firm was established in 1751 (according to an undocumented source) and by 1816 was listed as Hoult, Rowbottam, Wingfield & Wade in Tenter Street. In 1818, John Hoult withdrew and henceforth the firm was run by John Rowbottam, John Wingfield, and Richard Wade. The firm specialised in table cutlery. Succeeded in 1832 to Wade, Wingfield, Rowbotham, and Co. The partnership between Richard Wade, John Wingfield, John Rowbotham, Alfred Rowbotham and Henry Colley was dissolved in 1851. They were Merchants, Steel Converters, and Manufacturers of Table and Pocket Knives, Files, Saws, and Razors and were succeeded by Wingfield, Rowbotham & Company (partnership of John Wingfield, Alfred Rowbotham and Henry Colley)
