Default William Henry Aubrey

Hello! I am new here to the forum and am asking for some help. I am researching gun engravers from the early 1900’s and have come across the name William Henry Aubrey. He was one of A J Aubrey’s sons and is listed in the census as an engraver in Meriden. I do know that he apparently engraved for Lefever but was wondering if he ever engraved for Parker and if so would someone be willing to help me with any info or pics of known guns that he engraved?
I would greatly appreciate any help!
Thank you,

There is no mention of anyone named Aubrey in The Parker Story. That is where you will find the most comprehensive reference to Parker Bros. contractors, employees, and workers.

I think I have seen reference to an Aubrey in reference to The Meriden Fire Arms Co.

"I'm a Setter man.
Not because I think they're better than the other breeds,
but because I'm a romantic - stuck on tradition - and to me,
a Setter just "belongs" in the grouse picture."

George King, "That's Ruff", 2010 - a timeless classic.
