Samuel Hayne Dudley Cater:
The business of manufacturing silversmith was commenced by Thomas Wallis sr. in 1758 c. He was succeeded in 1777 c. by Thomas Wallis jr. who in 1810 entered in partnership with Jonathan Hayne.
The partnership was dissolved in 1816 and in 1821 Jonathan Hayne entered his first mark.
In 1836 his son Samuel Holditch Hayne entered a new mark in partnership with Dudley Frank Cater (a former apprentice) under the style Hayne & Co., assuming full control of the firm after the death of Jonathan Hayne (1848).
The style was modified to Hayne & Cater and the firm was listed as merchants, manufacturers and wholesale silversmiths and silver spoon and fork makers from 1853 to 1864. Hayne continued the business after Cater's retirement (1864) trading as Samuel Hayne & Co.
The firm declared bankruptcy on 1865.
