Meyer & Schönfeld

XI/38/178, 1 box

In December 1838, G. S. Meyer from the Bradford based firm dealing mainly in worsted stuffs, called at Rothschilds', handing in a letter of credit for £5,000 per three months by Michaelson & Benedick (q.v.) of Stockholm, thus opening an account at New Court on which Meyer & Schönfeld could draw. They were given letters of reference and permitted to mention the connection with Rothschilds in their circulars. The account was designed to allow "the purchase from the small producers" of the areas of Leeds, Bradford and Manchester. On 24 November 1841 they wrote of themselves, "three years ago we established a firm in Hamburg specialising in manufactured goods in support of which purpose we received in addition to our own capital a considerable amount at ten years from Michaelson & Benedick."
