Jelks and Sons - Brief history
The earliest mention of this business indicates it was established in 1835 by Arthur and William Jelks' In the early years the business did seem to mainly dealing in domestic furnishings but in the early 1900's their Billiard Dinning Table was patented and the business stated that it was made entirely in their works at Holloway Road North London. By 1909 W. Jelks & Sons were manufacturing full size Billiard tables, in 1911 they listed second hand tables by other makers such as Burroughes & Watts, Cox & Yeman and Thurston, they were also keen to promote their own.
From the 1920's Jelks seem to have moved into the Billiard market in quite a big way as following adverts indicate.
They not only supplied Snooker and Billiard Tables but offered Bar Billiard tables and all the accessories and a recovering service as well. However in 1954 there is a report to suggest that this year the company ceased trading.
