In Reply to: Re: Joseph Kilner England<NY 1860s by Tracey DALY of 88

Hello all, My interest is in the Benson line, but the info below adds a bit more to the information in this link of postings on the Kilners. Both families were related and moved to America to ply their trade of knifemaking. There were several trained cutlers (knifemakers) who were well thought of and were eventually scooped up by a large knife making firm in Litchfield, Conn. Let me know by my personal email if you need more info, sources, etc. Best regards, Bill Benson bens1@charter.net
