W H Grant Silks

William Henry Grant, born at Foleshill, Coventry in 1858, learned the business whilst working for Thomas Stevens most likely as a loom maker and designer. At 24 years of age, now in business for himself, he exhibited at the Peterborough Industrial and Fine Arts Exhibition of 1882 held in Fitzwilliam Hall during April of that year. He advertised "an improved Jaquard Loom for weaving ladies' neck ribbons, Exhibition souvenirs and silk goods generally".
Grant was elected to City Councilman in 1906, was made Justice of the Peace and became Mayor of Coventry 3 times. He died in 1931, aged 73 and was a true Entrepreneur of the Coventry Industrial Revolution.
