From Graces Guide

Thomas Otway and William Vincent Wennington

1831 Advertisement mentions 'Messrs. Otway, Wennington and Co, Goscote Foundry, near Walsall'[1]

1838 Mention of 'the extensive foundry of Messrs. Otway, Wennington and Co'[2]

1844. Became W. V. Wennington and Co. 'To the Editor of the Wolverhampton Chronicle. Goscote Foundry and Steam Engine Manufactory, near Walsall, March 15, 1844. SIR, —In consequence of the advertisement which appeared in your paper a short time ago, giving notice of the sale of this place the property of the late Mr. Otway, under a decree of the High Court of Chancery, an erroneous impression has been created, and several parties have applied to us to know whether the business is transferred to other hands or entirely given up. Under these circumstances, we deem it necessary to state that the sale in question consisted of moiety of the freehold only, upon which moiety Mr. Wennington held a mortgage, and ultimately became the purchaser at the sale. W, V. WENNINGTON and Co. take this opportunity of expressing to their friends and the public generally their thanks for the support they have hitherto met with, and to assure them it shall be their study to deserve a continuance of their patronage. The insertion of the above in your columns will oblige, sir, Your most obedient servants, W. V. WENNINGTON and Co.'[3]
