Angus Nicholson, a Scot who settled in New Milford, purchased the site of a sawmill on the West Aspetuck River in 1768 for a bloomery forge. By 1787 he was able to buy half of the Lanesville forge, the area's first bloomery. 13 Bloomery proprietors who eventually converted their forges into manufacturing establishments had the largest impact on the Salisbury iron industry. Richard Seymour of Hartford, a smith and owner of a one-eighth share of Ore Hill, bought property on the Blackberry River in Canaan for a bloomery forge at the 1738 proprietors' auction.

Coning & Holley started buying ore, and teamsters brought in loads of charcoal. Other local artisans supplied flux, clay, and molding sand. On 3 June Coffing & Holley hired Ebenezer Brinton as founder (in charge of the furnace at $50 per month); Micah French as banksman (in charge of the stocks of ore, fuel, and flux at $11 per month); William Hopkins and Elijah Easty as guttermen (working the pig bed, $11 per month); J. Everest, John Montgomery, and J. Brinton as fillers (charging the furnace, $15 per month); six laborers as ore pounders; and Joseph Brinton and two others for general labor about the furnace.

2). In addition to slitting iron into nail rod, mill proprietors could roll strips or plates thinner than artisans could make with the trip hammers used at the Salisbury forges. 8 Forbes and Adam depended on Salisbury's community of skilled artisans working as independent contractors to staff their forge. These men took on varied tasks, as needed: between June and August 1805, William Foxon made gudgeons, steeled a shaft, turned gristmill spindles, forged and turned fulling mill and sawmill cranks, made a printing press pin for John Roberts of Hartford, turned a clothiers' crank and three bearings, and made pins (screws) for a steamboat and screw plates for a comb factory.
