1869-1875 Edward Bolton of Orford Lane Glassworks
Edward Bolton became the sole owner of the Orford Lane Glassworks Warrington Lancashire on the 1st of March 1869 having dissolved his partnership with Peter Robinson. It is highly unlikely that Robinson was involved in the day to day running of the business from 1867 as his name is not listed in the tax returns.
After the partnership was dissolved Peter Robinson started the Glassworks Firm of Robinson, Son and Skinner in 1871.
