NotesHoward Ashley took out a patent for a semi-automatic bottle-making machine in Mar 1887. However, there was much opposition, for around 20 years, from bottle makers in changing processes from hand made to mechanical methods. Ashley (Machine-made) Bottle Company Limited went out of business in 1894 and the machines were bought and used successfully by Bagleys of Knottingley, Yorkshire and Cannington Shaw of St.Helens.
