1868-1875 Vve [widow] Routier and Gustave Peignot. 1875-1889 Gustave Peignot. 1889-1916 Gustave Peignot et fils. 1916-1923 Peignot et Cie. Successor to Leclerc and Bliaux fils. Merged with Girard (successor to Deberny) to form Deberny et Peignot.
Acquired Longien in the Gustave Peignot period.
Acquired Cochard & David in the Gustave Peignot period.
Acquired punches of the Fonderie Générale in the Gustave Peignot et fils period (The "History of Deberny et Peignot" (see below) attributes this to Georges Peignot in 1912. It makes no mention of other materials or of the business itself.)
Acquired "characters" of Doublet in the Gustave Peignot et fils period (The "History of Deberny et Peignot" (see below) attributes this to the firm's director, Henri Menut, in the 1914-1916 period.)
Acquired Baskerville punches from Bertrand in the Gustave Peignot et fils period (The "History of Deberny et Peignot" (see below) attributes this to the firm's director, Henri Menut, in the 1914-1916 period.)
The "History of Deberny et Peignot" (see below) says that Peignot purchased the Leclerc/Bliaux founderies with money borrowed from his "godmother." I presume that this godmother was the widow Routier, but have no confirmation of this as yet.
In the "Gustave Peignot et fils" period, there were five sons. Georges Peignot was second-from-eldest, and said to be dominant in the firm. Robert (eldest) died 1913. The others died in World War I (by 1916).
