Received by Suffolk Record Office on 15 April 1982
Acc. no. 6374
Administrative / biographical background:
The firm of Mellonie and Goulder Ltd. was registered in 1907, and may have had some connection with a Thomas Mellonie who traded as a coal and agricultural merchant in Ipswich between approximately 1879 and 1892, and had premises in other Essex and Suffolk Towns. Mellonie and Goulder Ltd. expanded rapidly in its first 20 years of life, absorbing smaller companies, but went into voluntary liquidation in 1928. A new company was then promoted - Mellonie and Goulder (1928) Ltd. - partly owned by William Cory and Son Ltd.
