1820 Richard Blakemore adopted a nephew, Thomas William Booker, who in time succeeded to the business based on Melingriffith Ironworks and traded as T. W. Booker and Co.

The enterprise continued to prosper, and Mr. Booker's three sons, Richard, Thomas William and John Partridge, were given an interest in the concern.

1858 T. W. Booker Senior, died, and the three sons inherited. Considerable extensions were made to the new works, and additional mills were built and other industries were set up for the manufacture of wire and red ochre.
