Daniel Massey was the founder of the Newcastle Foundry and Machine Manufactory in 1847 in Newcastle, Ontario. In 1857, Alanson Harris purchased a small foundry in Beamsville and began producing tools such as hand rakes and pitch forks under the name A Harris, Son & Company Ltd. In 1891, competition resulted in a merger of the two companies, the Massey-Harris Company Ltd, which became the largest agricultural equipment maker in the British Empire.

With more than 160 years of innovation and experience, Massey Ferguson are pioneers of combine harvester technology and one of the world’s leading tractor brands, dating back to the mid-19th century, with the founding of the Canadian farm equipment firms – the Massey Manufacturing Company of Toronto and A Harris, Son & Company of Brantford. The company has since introduced many world first agricultural engineering innovations including a combined stripper/thresher, the self-propelled combine harvester (1940s), PowerFlow header (1970s), in-cab electronic interactive display and GPS yield mapping.
Marsham Starting Handle Club Summer Show 2017
The show, the seventh in as many years, was held over the weekend of 12/13th August. It is growing bigger every year. More than 500 exhibitors displayed their tractors, stationary engines, vintage lawnmowers and agricultural implements, but there is much more to see on the 13-acres site which adjoins Orchard Cottage in Allison Street, such as several rare, "dancing" dual drive Doe-built tractors, classic and military vehicles and motorcycles, demonstrations in the parade ring of working gun and sheep dogs and demonstrations of old-time ploughing and harvesting in a crop field nearby. For the first time since its restoration the Soame steam wagonette was featured. The first tractor pulling event in the county for 27 years was also held here (in 2013). Fairground organs create just the right atmosphere, a bouncy castle provides entertainment for the younger visitors, and a variety of stalls can be sampled in the fun fair section of the site. Food vendors guarantee that no-one will be going home hungry.

According to Bob Parke, the site owner and one of the organisers, the show featured 350 tractors, over 100 classic cars, and about 80 motorcycles and had about 2,500 visitors.
