However, in an email received on July the 23rd, 2003, from harold Chesterman, was a copy of an Inscription on a Plate on the old "Bow Works", that reads as follows:-

"The City of Sheffield
James Chesterman (1792-1867)
James Chesterman moved to Sheffield from London in 1820. Nine years later he patented the spring tape measure. He also invented the self-winding window blind, produced the first long steel Measuring tape and the first Woven metallic tape. His business adopted the bow as its trademark, and he named his factory the bow works which moved to this site in 1864.
James Chesterman & Co became synonymous with high quality measuring instruments, especially tapes, callipers and squares. In 1963 amalgamation with John Rabone & Sons created Rabone Chesterman, who were subsequently bought by Stanley Tools and transferred to Stanley's Woodside Plant.
Bow Works was refurbished and extended for its new occupants, Norwich Union in 1993.
