John Roberts, a Sheffield silversmith. Roberts worked in several partnerships prior to entering a mark in his own name. John Parsons & Co registered their mark on 3 July 1793 – the partners were John Parsons, William Ashforth, John Roberts, Samuel Mosley and John Green. This firm only manufactured candlesticks.
John Parsons left after 5 months, and the remaining partners registered their mark in December 1793 as John Green & Co. Again, they only manufactured candlesticks. William Ashforth retired in 1805, so partners Roberts, Mosley and Settle registered the mark John Roberts & Co. The firm continued to manufacture candlesticks and wine coasters.
John Roberts died in 1807, and his son, John Winter Roberts, became partner until 1812. When he left, he continued to trade as John Roberts & Co and re-entered the mark in 1813 with partners Thomas Clayton and John Amory. The partnership was dissolved by 1820.
