In the same year when the Peace of Tilsit was declared and Westfalia was made a kingdom by Napoleon´s mercy the “Sprockhövelsche Fabrick” came to an end. But it was not the end for Heinrich Wilhelm Neuhaus and his smithy. He overcame these difficult times by selling his products on his own so that he could hand over a flourishing business to his son Johann Diederich II. in 1831.
In the possession of the Neuhaus family is an iron to make New Year´s cakes which was made by the founder of the company Diederich Conrad Neuhaus in 1778. On one side of the iron the following words are engraved: Diederich Conrad Neuhaus und Elsa Margareta Beckmann; Anno 1778.
