Osborn and Gunby Dates

G'day Guys,

I thought I would try and narrow down the dates that Henry Osborn and John Gunby were in partnership together. Often there is a lag between when changes are made to partnerships and when they are recorded in trade directories. Does anyone have any specific evidence as to when Osborn and Gunby began trading? I know it was at least as early as 1806 because of the inscription on this sword in the Royal Armouries.

The partnership was dissolved in June 1820.

Cheers,
Bryce

Hi Bryce
Southwick has the partnership formed in 1805 but it does not appear in the Birmingham Trade directories until 1808.

Thanks Richard,
I had the 1805 date in mind, but wasn't sure where it came from.
Cheers,
Bryce
