They had many notable Patrons including the British Ambassador in Paris and the Empress of Russia (1830), the Turkish Ambassador was introduced to the firm by Lord Palmerston (1834). The firm also undertook work at notable houses including Audley End in Essex and Burton Constable in Yorkshire. It is thought that the firm was probably taken over in 1844 by C Hindley and Sons.
