A. Clerk & Co reels were sold by them between 1857 and 1876. Andrew and his brother William succeeded the J & T Warrin business in 1857. They were in turn succeeded by the firm Abbey & Imbrie in 1876, in which Andrew Clerk was made a special partner. Clerk did not make his reels, but had them made for him by businesses like J.C.
