1852 Brothers-in-law Joseph William Wilson and Samuel H. F. Cox went into partnership at Oldbury as Cox and Wilson, erecting the Oxford Engineering Works where they manufactured various kinds of engines and pumping machinery, and also mining appliances for the goldfields of California and elsewhere; a small portable single-acting steam-engine of their make was described to the Institution in 1853[1].

1857 Partnership of Cox and Wilson was dissolved[2]
