The above information is mainly condensed from the website[1]

Note: There was a competing ironworks nearby, founded in 1838, under the management of M. Broutta and belonging to Messrs. Sherwood ( Bailey Sherwood and Newman Sherwood), also having two blast furnaces, of the same capacity as those of Pinart. They produced pig iron for the Guines forges, operated by the same company. It appears that the Sherwoods were succeeded by James Morrison et Cie.
