1848.

of 143 Cheapside, London (1834)[1]

of Farringdon Within, London (1848)[2]

of Dunston Anchor Works, Gateshead

c.1840 Honiball took out a patent in the name of one of inventors of an improved design of anchor, one Mr Porter; he and the other inventor had been working for Honiball at his warehouse in Cheapside. Honiball then established a factory at Dunston, near Gateshead, and proved the anchor a practical and scientific success but not a commercial success.

Honiball died in 1852. Trotman then improved the anchor and it was accepted as the best version by an Admiralty committee[3]
