Samuel James Summerson (c1851-1907) of Thomas Summerson and Sons


1907 Obituary [1]

SAMUEL JAMES SUMMERSON died on November 7, 1907, at Haughton-le-Skerne, aged fifty-six years. He was the third son of the late Thomas Summerson, and was for many years associated with railway interests in the north of England.

In 1870 he and his brother, Mr. R. B. Summerson, joined his father, who had acquired the Albert Hill Foundry, Darlington, and in 1891 he became a co-managing partner with his brother.

In 1900, on the conversion of the undertaking into a limited liability company, he became chairman, which position he held up to the time of his death. The firm prospered under his auspices, and in 1906 was extended by the acquisition of the adjacent works belonging to the Darlington Waggon and Engineering Company, Limited.

He was elected a member of the Iron and Steel Institute in 1890.
