Fraser James and Son
Janes Fraser was joined by his son, James Barlow Fraser in partnership about 1859. The Manchester directories indicate that the partnership established a branch office in Leeds in 1863. James Barlow Fraser probably moved permanently to Leeds following his marriage to Emma Louisa Calvert, daughter of Thomas Calvert. However, the Manchester Directories continue to record the existence of the Manchester partnership until 1877.
