Heres a bit of History (courtesy of Graces Guide). Cropper, Charlton and Co. Henry Cropper died in 1893, and the company then became The Cropper Machines Co. Trading from Parkinson Street Mills, Nottingham. Shortly afterwards, Henrys son Sydney went into partnership with Charles Charlton and the name of the company changed to Cropper, Charlton and Co. Trading from Franklin Works, New Basford, Nottingham. Sadly Sydney Cropper died aged only 36 in 1901, just two years after his marriage. Charlton continued to run the company with his two sons, Reginald and Charles Cedric, not surprisingly they kept the Cropper name in their company title. The last patent that they applied for was in 1939. Minerva Works, Great Alfred Street, NOTTINGHAM. WITHIN the range of invaluable improvements in printing machinery recorded during the Victorian era, none have been of more importance in the book and jobbing trade than the introduction into this country of the platen machine, which may be said to have effected as remarkable a revolution in this branch as did the adoption of the Hoe in the newspaper press. To the Cropper-Minerva Machines Company, Limited, through their predecessors, the late H. Samuel Thacker, now managing director of the company, is the only surviving partner, belongs the credit of placing on the English market a machine that has consistently gained a popularity since its introduction, as evidenced by the fact that over 20,000 of the “Croppers” are in use here and in Americaone firm alone, Messrs. McCorquodale, having 67 machines, Messrs. Bemrose and Sons 10, Messrs. Shuttleworth and Bunn 17, of this type at work in their establishments. The present firm are successors to the original H. Thacker, the sons of Mr. Cropper, Charlton and Hole, who claimed the right to use the term “Cropper” as applied to their platen printing machines. Both parties were represented before Mr. Justice Romer, in the Chancery Division of the High Court, and, after a protracted hearing, his Lordship delivered judgment in favour of the plaintiff in the actionMr. As the firm are frequently receiving enquiries on this point, it may be appropriate to introduce at this stage of our notice the terms of Mr. Justice Romer’s judgment. This is as follows:An injunction to restrain the defendants from carrying on their business under the name of the Cropper Machine Company, or under any name calculated to induce the belief that they are the successors in business of H. Cropper and Company, or of the Limited Company, or are entitled to sell platen machines not made by H. Cropper and Company, or by the Limited Company, or by the plaintiffs as Cropper machines. Then there will be an injunction restraining the defendants from further issuing the advertisements which have been exhibited, or any advertisements calculated to induce the belief that they are the successors in business of H. This judgment so clearly defines the position of the Cropper-Minerva Company that any doubt previously entertained on this point by the trade may be considered dispelled for all time.
