Administrative / biographical background:

The firm was founded by Philip Holmes Stanton at 23, Sandhill, Newcastle in 1821. By 1868, his son, Cornelius Harrison Stanton had joined him in the business. The following year John Atkinson, formerly a sole trader at 86 Pilgrim Street became a partner and the business changed its name to Stanton and Atkinson. The next change, to Stanton, Atkinson and Hudson, came around 1901 when Lee Hudson joined the partnership. In 1908 Arthur Lister Bird, formerly of Leadbitter and Harvey joined the firm but does not appear to have become a partner until 1915 when the name of the business changed to Stanton, Atkinson and Bird. In the mid - 1960's Stanton Croft and Co (as the firm had by then become) merged with John J Neesham and Co of Percy Chambers, Newcastle.
