James Fenton led a group about 1846 that took over the Railway Foundry of Shepherd and Todd, in Hunslet, becoming Fenton, Craven and Company.

Among the company's apprentices were some who went on to further success, David Joy, John Chester Craven, Benjamin Hick and Richard Peacock.

In 1847, Edward Brown Wilson returned to the company and it became E.B. Wilson and Co.[1]
