Many thanks dave,

Interesting. I know of Brunel and Claxton.

Sandys, Carne and Vivian of Copperhouse Foundry, Hayle.
The company built pumping engines, iron sailing ships, plant for gas-works, flour-mills, saw mills, Cornish boilers etc

I think that is 'was on a King ...' The 'on' does not look like 'as' further up the note.

The Great Western Railway 6000 Class or King is a class of 4-6-0 steam locomotive designed for express passenger work.

Dave
