     ?The European trade was in the hands of James Dixon, (1851-1947) the son of Henry Isaac. He was the only member of the family to become Master Cutler, and one of the youngest at 36 years of age. In 1877 when James Dixon (son of Henry Isaac) had taken over the works, he was elected a Member of the Cutlers Company. In 1882 he became a Searcher; progressing in 1885 to Junior Warden; in 1886 Senior Warden and in 1887 he became Master Cutler. At his Cutlers' Feast, his guest of honour was Mr E. Stanhope (Secretary of State for War) as Prince George was unable to come. During James' time as Master Cutler, the Cutlers Hall was extended and the Merchandise Marks Act was published. This Act was considered extremely important at the time and prohibited the sale of unmarked goods, making all companies mark their goods with their name and place of origin. James held a lot of feasts and dinners during his time as Master Cutler, including one for all the deaf and dumb people and one for all the Sheffield Postmen on Christmas morning. James Dixon was also Guardian of the Sheffield Assay Office, 1915-1920.?
