Little is known about this company. The October 15, 1870 edition of the Daily Evening Herald newspaper of Stockton, California, ran an ad for the Stockton Iron Works. The ad proclaims a new foundry and machine shop located on California Street between Main and Weber Avenue in Stockton, CA. The owners were Th. Farrington, G. C. Hyatt, and H. S. Farrington. The text of the ad states "Manufacture Steam Engines, Quartz, Saw and Grist Mill Works, Mining Machinery, Agricultural Work, House Front and Iron and Brass Castings of every description. A share of the patronage of the public is requested. Particular attention given to jobbing and repairing. Farrington Hyatt & Co. Proprietors".
