    George Barnsley and Sons Ltd. (founded 1836) They were in Cornish Place on the Don and specialised in forge filing and cutting tools for leather workers and shoe makers. One George Barnsley was Master Cutler in 1883.:
    George Barnsley and Son is listed in the 1837 Sheffield directory as a file manufacture situated on Wheeldon Street, The 1849 listing records a move to Cornhill and the 1852 to Cornesh works Cornesh street they had by this time also increased there product range to include steel files, shoe and butchers knives.
    They are again listed in 1944 as manufactures of files and blades shoe knives and leather workers tools.
    In the 1948 listing the business had become George Barnsley and Son Ltd.
    From the information I have found, this place finally closed in 1994.
