Administrative history

This wool, textile and bedding merchant and manufacturing company was the successor to the original firm of Laycock, Son & Nettleton founded by Federick Laycock, his son Burdett and Samuel Nettleton around 1884. The partnership of Laycock, Son & Nettleton dissolved in 1911, with the separate firm of Laycock, Son & Co Ltd being formed and continuing in Melbourne. The Nettletons founded a separate firm in Sydney, Nettleton & Co. In 1915 the Melbourne firm was re-organised by Burdett Laycock to include his sons Frederick Cornelius and Edwin, and became Laycock, Son & Co Pty Ltd. In 1926 the Melbourne company re-organised the Sydney firm of Nettleton & Co and it was later renamed Laycock Son & Nettleton with E B Laycock as Director. The company was deregistered on 1 August 1997.
