Ferryhill Iron Works

From Graces Guide

1859 James Morrison began the Ferryhill Iron Works, erecting three blast furnaces, each 55 feet in height.

c.1864 Morrison amalgamated his interest in these and other works in the county of Durham with the owners of the Rosedale' estate, forming the Rosedale and Ferryhill Iron Co, the other partners being George Leeman and Alexander Clunes Sherriff.
