N. L. Fernandes and Co.

N. L. Fernandes and Co.

Nowell Luis Fernandes was involved in a family business of wine merchants and worsted spinners in Wakefield, West Yorkshire in the 1830s. In 1839 this business was dissolved and Fernandes established his own brewing company in 1850 at the Old Bridge Brewery, Doncaster Road, Wakefield, called N. L. Fernandes & Co.

The company was acquired, along with 42 tied pubs, by John Smiths in 1919 and a year later the Old Bridge Brewery closed down.
