Thomas Northcote & George Bourne registered a mark together on 5th June 1794 as plate-workers. Heal records their partnership as having dissolved in 1796. As Thomas Northcote entered a mark on his own on 11th July 1797, tongs by Northcote and Bourne were only made over a period of a maximum of three years.
