    Yes. But I count on the help of the list members.
    
    > One example, not on Alex's list, is Sewill, of Liverpool,
    
    I was hesitating about Sewell, because his sextant
    (your sextant) looks exactly like a Heath of the same
    epoch. But perhaps "Maker to the Royal Navy" means something,
    so I added him to the list.

    Why do you think so??
    Kelvin could (and did!) participate in this enterprise in XIX
    century, while Hughes and Son (=Husun)
    was very common in XX century. So it looks like they dropped
    Kelvin's name...

    Do you know of any publications of her
    with the list of manufacturers?
    
    Alex.
