    From Tweedale's Directory. John Newton Mappin (younger brother of Edward and Charles) launched a new elctro-plate and cutlery business, Mappin & Co. at the Royal Cutlery Works in Pond Hill. In 1860 the company registered a silver mark. Almost immediately Mappin Bros. sued to prevent the use of the Mappin & Co. name. The Mappin Bros. failed in their suit but nonetheless John Newton Mappin changed the company's name. It was first known as Mappin, Webb & Co. but by 1868 it had become Mappin & Webb & Co.
    So Mappin Bros. owned by Edward and Joseph Mappin worked out of Queens Works and Mappin & Webb owned By John Mappin worked out of Royal Cutlery Works. Two different companies. I thought all along one just morphed into the other. An interesting read and I learned something.
    Finally in 1902 John N. Mappin acquired Mappin Bros. and established Mappin & Webb (Mappin Bros. Incorporated) thus bringing to an end a family feud that lasted more than half a century.
    I stand corrected on the Mappin & Webb start date and edited the original post.
