Ibbotson Brothers & Co., Globe Works - Sheffield, UK





"On the opposite side of Broad lane, in the first house above St. Thomas's street, lived Mr. Ibbotson, the father of the late Mr. William Ibbotson, who married his cousin Mary.

Mr. William Ibbotson was consequently brother-in-law as well as cousin to Mr. Henry; and they took to the old gentleman's business, which I believe was the saw trade, and entered into partnership as 'Ibbotson Brothers.'  As is generally known, they built the Globe Works; and were one of the first firms in Sheffield which established an extensive trade in saws and cutlery with America."
