Henry Holland -

By 1880, Henry I had retired and two new partners were taken on; John Aldwinckle and James Slater. Henry II retired in 1883 and another major acquisition made; the purchase of Chawner & Co. from George Adams.

Another famous silversmithing name, Robert Hennel & Sons, was bought in 1887. The company produced some of the finest silver flatware, around the turn of the Century. It was bought by Francis Higgins in 1922 but continued to trade under it's own name until 1932.
