G.J.H. Brown & Son, silversmiths and jewellers of Chester, was established in 1859 as Brown Brothers, watchmakers, gold and silversmiths, jewellers and opticians, 3 Bridge Street Row, Chester. The partners were Elisha Brown (30 January 1828 – 7 June 1905) and George John Helmsley Brown (30 October 1831 – 30 July 1909), two of the children of Elisha Brown (6 October 1787 – 15 July 1863), a watchmaker from Coventry who settled at 66 Middle Crane Street, Chester. The younger Elisha Brown retired from Brown Brothers in 1883, leaving the business to be continued by G.J.H. Brown. The firm was known as G.J.H. Brown & Son from about 1893 and later as G.J.H. Brown & Son Ltd. until closing about 1980. Brown's business records, comprising 58 files of accounts, &c., were subsequently deposited at the Cheshire Record Office, Duke Street, Chester.
