1830s (guess) John Bramall set up his own business on the understanding making files. His premises were in Hoyle Street; he was assisted initially by his father who had retired from Spear and Jackson.

Took George Fisher (who had been a traveller for Messrs Blake and Co in the next door premises) into partnership.

1844 Dissolution of the Partnership between George Fisher, John Bramall, and George Whittles, as Manufacturers of Files and Steel, at Sheffield, in the county of York, under the firm of Fisher, Bramall, and Company which had expired by effluxion of time. George Fisher and John Bramall continued the same trade on their own account[1]

The partnership continued for 20 years.

1855 Dissolution of the Partnership between George Fisher and John Bramall, as Manufacturers of Steel Files and Saws, and as Merchants, carried on at Sheffield, in the county of York, under the firm of Fisher and Bramall. The said George Fisher alone is entitled to receive all the debts, except one in Australia, due to the said late partnership, and he will pay all the debts due and owing from or by the same.[2]

Mr Fisher continued the business in Hoyle Street, presumably as George Fisher and Co

Mr Bramall established a new business in Savile Street.
