Default Hounslow and Shotley Bridge Hangers

In 17th century, groups of Solingen swordsmiths brought into England first set up shop near Hounslow Heath, later the enterprise seems to have been near Shotley Bridge. I dont believe the two locations ran concurrently, but am curious about the swords produced.

Anybody out there either have or have access to swords from either of these two locations? I'm not sure offhand if they typically marked location showing Hounslow or Shotley Bridge, but know of a few that did.

Just thought it would be interesting to look into.

Best regards,
