The following information is taken from the same source. About the year 1840 James Craig took his son Robert into the business. Robert was born in 1808. James Craig died in 1841. Robert took his sons James, Robert, John and Charles into the business and the name of the firm became Robert Craig & Sons. The firm being unable to come to terms with the landlord for a renewal of the lease, the firm abandoned the Newbattle Mill on 25 April 1890.
