John, Henry & Charles Lias

John was the father of Henry and Charles and registered marks alone and in partnership with Henry and then with both his sons. The first mark registered to all three was in 1828 the fourth in 1833. By 1837 Charles was registering his own mark but John and Henry were still in partnership in 1839.
