Related to the posting directly above, there is more about the Mushet connection with Sheffield at:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samuel_Osborn_%26_Company

It was definitely Robert Forester Mushet (there is no Thomas, I referred to him from memory and my memory was obviously inaccurate on the first name!) who met with Osborn and then two of Mushet's sons were involved in the enterprise.

Hope you have found this interesting. Most people from Sheffield will have one of the metal industries in their family history, iron, steel, brass and silver being the most usual!
