Gillan (Bob) – Robert Gillan of Gillan, Schmitz & Co
Daily Gazette for Middlesbrough
4 Sept 1891
The late Mr E Schmitz
This gentleman, whose death occurred at Coatham this week, was at one time a prominent figure in our local iron trade, for he was a partner in a firm of iron merchants which did probably the largest business in exporting Cleveland pig iron of any firm of merchants in the district.  We refer to the firm of Gillan, Schmitz and Co., who exported very extensively to the Continent, and who did much to work up a trade with Germany.  Mr Schmitz was born at Lippstadt, in Rhenish Prussia, in 1837, and about 30 years ago he entered the service of the then celebrated firm of iron merchants Messrs Robinow and Marjoribanks, of Glasgow.  In 1866 he entered into partnership with Mr Robert Gillan, who is brother-in-law to Sir Raylton Dixon, and at that time had a large business in this district.  Mr Gillan went to Glasgow, and Mr Schmitz took charge of the Middlesbrough business, which became very extensive during the years succeeding the Franco-German War, and the consumption of Cleveland iron on the Continent increased "by leaps and bounds."  Mr Schmitz was also at one time intimately associated with some of our iron producing concerns, and was a director of the Britannia Ironworks Company, Limited, which was established for the production of iron rails, but whose works are now carried on by Messrs Dorman, Long, and Co., Limited.  After severing his connection with Mr Gillan, Mr Schmitz carried on business chiefly as an iron broker.  Early in his career in this country he was naturalised, and became an enthusiastic Volunteer; he was connected for many years with the local Artillery Volunteers, attaining the rank of major.

Daily Gazette for Middlesbrough 13 May 1876
Sudden death of Robert Lloyd, Esq
We regret to announce the sudden death of Robert Lloyd, Esq., of Middlesbrough.  Deceased was acting partner in the firm of Lloyd and Co., Linthorpe Ironworks, and was at business in his usual health on Wednesday.  On Thursday he felt unwell and medical assistance was called.  From the first the symptoms were considered dangerous.  He gradually became worse, and died last night, cut off in the prime of life, amidst the activities of business.  Mr Lloyd was a member of the Town Council for some years; and was one of the four borough magistrates appointed by the Lord Chancellor last year.  He was a Conservative, but took little interest in politics confining his attention, for the most part, to the large and prosperous concern of which he had the chief management.
