Cheryl, is there anything else you know about the cork cutting
industry about the late eighteen hundreds. My forebears owned a company called Avern and Sons (Cork Merchants) and in January 1882 formed a partnership with Arthur Barris.The new company was called Avern, sons and Barris. They traded from 154 Minories near Tower Bridge. Later in 1894 Henry Avern and another of the Barris family (who were from Palafrugell in Spain) built the factory you refer to in Silves. I would love to learn a little more about the cork industry, so please let me know what you've got. Thanks. Rick
