Scope and Content

The records of Bomford and Evershed Ltd., although having a bias towards legal, and particularly patenting material, comprise an important body of information, the only major omission being manufacturing items. The accounts [TR Bom/AC] are usefully summarized in a run of annual financial statements, 1938-1966 [TR Bom/AC7/2-30], which often include the more detailed draft statements (with items like departmental trading accounts and schedules of assets) as well as those passed by the auditors. In addition there is the 1910 balance sheet [TR Bom/AC7/1] and the first annual statement of the Bomford Group, 1967 [TR Bom/AC7/31]. The only accounts books as such are a private ledger, 1940-1956 [TR Bom/AC1/1] and a nominal ledger, 1946-1956 [TR Bom/AC1/2], both ceasing with the transfer of dredging business to Bomford & Wilkins. The four directors' minute books, 1904-1969 [TR Bom/AD1/1-4], are a most noteworthy series as they cover almost the entire history of the firm and record proceedings as well as resolutions. No less important is some ways is the lengthy correspondence between Harry Evershed and Raymond Bomford, 1908 [TR Bom/AD3/1-2] concerning the relationship of the firm with R. & B. Bomford, and the two estimates books, 1903-1926 [TR Bom/AD7/1-2], mainly for contracting work, entries prior to 1904(15 Feb) being for R. &. B. Bomford. Moving on to the company records [TR Bom/CO], these contain a copy of the original 1904 memorandum and articles of association [TR Bom/CO2/1], which includes the articles of agreement whereby the company was established, the 1964 memorandum and articles [TR Bom/CO2/2], the general minute book for A.G.M.s., and E.G.M.s., 1904-1971 [TR Bom/CO2/4] and the memorandum and articles for McConnel-Bomford Ltd., 1946 [TR Bom/CO2/12]. Two business agreements, both of 1910, are preserved, one concerning the construction of railway sidings at Salford Priors for goods traffic by The Midland Railway Co., [TR Bom/CO3/1] and the other the sale of Bomford & Evershed's steam cultivation contracting machinery to R. &. B. Bomford [TR Bom/CO3/2]. The real estate records [TR Bom/CO4] all relate to various property in Salford Priors. Patenting material [TR Bom/CO5] is quite extensive, the vast majority of items being letter patent and specifications [TR Bom/CO5/1-90], many of them in the name of Douglas Raymond Bomford. They range world wide, including the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, South Africa, the Argentine, Brazil, Canada, United States of America and Australia, as well as referring to a wide variety of inventions. There are also patent licences and assignments [TR Bom/CO5/91-95] as well as some projected litigation [TR Bom/CO5/96].

The manufacturing records [TR Bom/DO, TR Bom/ET and TR Bom/MP] are very few, but it should be mentioned that threshing machines produced at the Atlas Works, 1904-1908, are included in the last Works' threshing machine register [TR BLL TR Bom/MP1/3], located elsewhere in the Trade Records Collection. Bomford & Evershed's publications comprise a compilation concerning Sapper products, c.1940-1960 [TR Bom/P1/A1], three early items, c.1910-1918, of which two are excavating and dredging contractors' catalogues [TR Bom/P2/A1-3], a variety of 1940's and 1950's items [TR Bom/P2/A4-16] and more recent material [TR Bom/P2/A17-36]. There is also a section of items for R. &. B. Bomford, Bomford Bros., and Bomford Bros., Ltd. [TR Bom/P2/A37-41]. Additionally there are some twenty catalogues published by other manufacturers, mainly steam engineers like Burrells, Garretts, McLarens, Robeys, Rustons and Wallis & Steevens [TR Bom/P2/B1-20] as well as a publicity press cuttings album, 1928-1955, comprising advertisements for dredging and ditching machinery and contract work [TR Bom/P7/1]. Photograph [TR Bom/PH3] are a varied accumulation, nearly all uncaptioned, of which nearly half relate to steam machinery. Finally the social and personal records [TR Bom/SP], apart from a file of historical notes and papers [TR Bom/SP1/1], concern the Bomford family and its origins [TR Bom/SP4/1-13], including certified extracts from parish registers, testamentary material and early agreements and correspondence.

In certain early items the firm's address is given as Salford Priors, Warwickshire whereas all the later items give Worcestershire. The addresses given in the catalogue are therefore those as they appear for each respective item.



Administrative History

Bomford & Evershed Ltd., began life in 1904 as a limited company based upon a three fold foundation:

i. E. Humphries & Co., Ltd., Atlas Works, Pershore, then in liquidation, an agricultural engineering firm specialising in portable steam engine and threshing machine production, were taken over as a going concern, including the freehold land and buildings at Pershore and their stock in trade, cash, debts, contracts and trade marks.

ii. The acquisition of the engineering and steam cultivating, road rolling, dredging and excavating business of Raymond and Benjamin Bomford, Pitchill, Evesham, R. & B. Bomford however continuing in business as a separate concern.

iii. The possession of the joint patents of R. &. B. Bomford and Harry Evershed, a former employee of R. & B. Bomford (and prior to 1896 of John Fowler & Co., (Leeds) Ltd.).

In 1908 Bomford & Evershed Ltd., moved to their present site at Salford Priors, Evesham, selling the Atlas Works, together with threshing machine manufacture there, to The Horsfall Destructor Co., Ltd., (in its turn superseded by Fisher-Humphries Ltd.), steam engine production having already been discontinued by Bomfords on their acquisition of the Atlas Works. Meanwhile R. & B. Bomford had been gradually returning to steam cultivation contract work and in 1910 Bomford & Evershed Ltd., sold them their steam cultivation contracting machinery. Thereafter Bomford & Evershed Ltd., concentrated on rolling, dredging and excavating contracts, with production of associated machinery such as ditching and earth moving equipment taking a secondary role until this was given an important incentive for development by the 'Dig for Victory' campaign during the Second World War. R. &. B. Bomford, superseded by Bomford Bros., were not idle either, especially in the design of machinery for hedge cutting, vegetable washing and cultivating and they became a limited company, Bomford Bros., Ltd., in 1954. The post war years saw Bomford & Evershed Ltd., rely more increasingly on manufacturing, selling their dredging business to Bomford & Wilkins after the end of 1956 and entering into cultivator production from 1960 onwards. In 1967 the two firms of Bomford & Evershed Ltd., and Bomford Bros., Ltd., joined to form; the present Bomford Group, the latter becoming the contracts division of the new concern.

    LETTER to Raymond Bomford from Harry Evershed

    Creation dates: 1908(7 Dec)


    Scope and Content

    Concerning his dissatisfaction over the relationship between the two firms of Bomford & Evershed Ltd., and R. &. B. Bomford. Emphasises his disagreement is on a business, not a personal, level. Complains that he has been managing Bomford & Evershed Ltd., for five years 'during which I have had a great deal of anxiety and worry and hard work and long hours' and only one holiday, 'life on such terms, even if one was to become a millionaire is not worth much'. He is also worse off financially than five years ago.

    Thought Bomford & Evershed Ltd.'s troubles would end with disposal of Atlas Works at Pershore and with the transfer of dredging and rolling work to Pitchill, thereby also helping to pay dividends on time. The contracting work was done originally at Pitchill and then transferred to the Atlas Works where its turnover doubled. The present situation is that both firms are based at Pitchill, both do contracting work and 'are in the nature of things antagonistic and I really do not see how they can ever be otherwise... R. &. B. Bomford are the mortal enemies of Bomford & Evershed Ltd., and as manager of the latter ought to wish dreadful things to happen to R. &. B. Bomford's engines'. Instead he complains that he has to put most of shop men to repair R. &. B. Bomford's engines. Therefore cannot foresee Bomford & Evershed's contract work recovering in these conditions. Thinks it ought to bring in £6,000 - £7,000 per year, and even more if they got the better of their competition, but now envisages the income as being £3,000 - £4,000, about the same as before the move to the Atlas Works, 'the work involved in managing it becomes most disheartening'.

    Suggests Bomford either buys out Evershed's interest or exchanges his shares for debentures. Says also disagreement over method of rebuilding old engines and means of increasing turnover, 'as I have only a very small capital, I cannot afford to see it dwindle away year by year'. If Evershed withdraws his capital, Bomford can then carry on Bomford & Evershed Ltd., as he sees fit. Alternatively Evershed might be able to persuade some of his friends to buy shares in Bomford & Evershed Ltd., from Bomford, giving Evershed greater say in its management. Says he has only the best interests of Bomford & Evershed Ltd., at heart. 'I hope we may either find a satisfactory solution to our difficulties or at least part friends, it would be a pity if after being associated for so long, we could not do so'.

    LETTER [Copy] to Harry Evershed from Raymond Bomford in reply to TR BOM AD3/1

    Creation dates: 1908(12 Dec)


    Scope and Content

    'I was not altogether surprised to receive your letter'. Says there is no antagonism between the two firms as far as R. &. B. Bomford are concerned, 'your assumption of rack is as untrue as it is unjust... My brother and I have spared neither time, energy nor expense to obtain work for and make the business of Bomford & Evershed Ltd., a success... the idea that we are competing with or doing anything to damage a business in which we have so much capital at stake is really not worth a thought'. Says both he and Benjamin Bomford have had just as much anxiety and hard work as Evershed. They are also willing to employ more efficient and experienced help to assist in management. Considers R. &. B. Bomford's demands on Bomford & Evershed Ltd., are fair in return for the premises allocated them at Pitchill. Has no wish to take away steam cultivating work from Bomford & Evershed Ltd. The question of shares would have to be discussed at a Directors' meeting. 'One danger to the company I do see and it is this continual wrangling between ourselves which should be put an end to at any cost for I see no need for it'.
