Francis Mordan

Francis Mordan was a son of Sampson Mordan. While Sampson's other two sons eventually took over S. Mordan & Co., Francis went his own way. He established his gold pen (nib) making business, F. Mordan & Co., in London in the late 1830's. Francis died in 1868, but his business remained in operation until approximately 1906.
