Webster and Butterfield of Chelmsford

I had found no reference to this firm in the Chelmsford directories, or town history.

Dave Spang contacted the historical society of North Chelmsford, and found that the firm is on the tax rolls of 1872 and 1874.  They made planes as well as clamps.  A detailed examination will presumably determine first and final dates of the company.

The Massachusetts Register and Business Directory of 1874 has an classification of Hand Screws, with a single entry: Webster and Butterfield, no street address, Chelmsford. I will try to find other issues of this Directory. (It's odd that Aldrich is not listed.)
