The information compiled here was made possible by contribution from Geoffrey Tweedale.  His new book, the "Tweedale’s Directory of Sheffield Cutlery Manufacturers 1740 – 2010" was a cornerstone to the reconstruction William Jackson's Historical Overview.

In addition, Prof. Tweedale shared his comments and guided my understanding of intricate details about Sheffield merchants and toolmakers.  His contribution of "WILLIAM JACKSON & CO – The Story of the Mark" piece included in the profile, adds to understanding Sheffield's ways of life.
