Notes

There is a subtle difference in naming between this business and the one it took over from, which was J.B. Colt and Company.

The date of foundation is from a catalogue in the Banham Collection, which states that this business 'has acquired all the patent rights, manufacturing plant and other property formerly owned by J.B. Colt & Co. (a corporation of the State of New York which has been dissolved).
