The firm evidently ran production units in the three villages that gave it its name and was established in 1835. I have not come across any evidence for the firm other than the certificate. By 1908 none of the places had a sugar factory.

Plain design for this subscription note. On the reverse the four instalments for the payment towards one share are recorded.
