    John Marsh and Edward Jones of Leeds purchased the old established London business of John Kendell of London in 1864, opening a showroom in Cavendish Square, before entering into partnership with Henry Cribb in 1872. The firm employed many of the leading designers in the fashionable Gothic taste of the 1860s and 1870s. Notable among these was Charles Bevan who designed the lavish suite supplied to the Yorkshire mill owner Titus Salt in 1865, now at Lotherton Hall, Yorkshire, and Bruce Talbert (d.1881), author of Gothic Forms Applied to Furniture, 1868, and Examples of Ancient and Modern Furniture, 1876.
