Ellis Brothers Shotgun

I inherited a Shotgun several years ago and am considering selling it, but before I do I would like to find out more history about it.


Its an Ellis brothers side by side. I vagely remember someone telling me that it is one of a pair made and there was once and article written about the 2 guns.

Can anyone help me or suggest places to visit to find out a bit more?

Thank you in advance for any replies.

I have seen the name before, google it, or you could send a PM to Tamara on of the staff here who basically knows everything about historic firearms.

Are you sure it is Ellis Brothers? There is a company in Spartanburg SC by the name of Ellet Brothers that sold doubles under their own name. They are a pretty big wholesaler that carried a wide range of brands, including their own.

There was an Ellis Brothers gunmaker in Birmingham England. A quick search did not turn up a history on them.
