The company began in 1837 when James Fellows, made a decision to get started with his very own company. James was aged 32 and located in West Bromwich. His very first narrowboat was named “Providence”. In 1876 Frederick Morton contributed expansion capital, and then the company title was altered to Fellows Morton & Co. In 1888-1889 William Clayton, who managed his own fleet of liquid cargo narrowboats in addition to conventional loads, became the third partner.

Narrowboat President, pictured above was built at a cost of some £600.00 during 1909. More info can be found at the Friends of President website. Kildare was just one of a number of iron composite butties built at a cost of about £190.00 to specifications provided by Fellows, Morton & Clayton Ltd.
