see Howard, Ravenhill and Co

1853 Herbert Howard Keeling went to Russia to test some suspension-bridge bars on behalf of his uncle, Mr. Thomas Howard, of the King and Queen Iron Works, Rotherhithe.

On the expiration of his apprenticeship Keeling went to assist Howard at those works, in which he became a partner in 1861.

Keeling invented an efficient mode of consuming the smoke from the furnaces.
