Harold Cawthorn (an auctioneer and valuer living at Plumpton Hall, Ripon) was admitted to the firm as a partner and the firm became Imeson, Jopling and Cawthorn.


Robert Imeson chose to retire but under request from the remaining partners (Jopling and Cawthorn) Robert agrees to retire without publicity and allow the partnership and Imeson, Jopling and Cawthorn name to remain.


Mr Thomas Kirby, merged his business with Mr Michael Blackburn and Mr Peter Hanby, dropping the name Cawthorn and creating Joplings.
