KIRK STIEFF CORPORATION
SAMUEL KIRK & SON
STIEFF COMPANY

Kirk Stieff Corporation was created in 1979 merging the ancient Baltimore silver companies Samuel Kirk & Son and Stieff Company.
The business was founded in 1815 in Baltimore by Samuel Kirk. After a partnership with John Smith (until 1820) the firm changed its name to Samuel Kirk & Son in 1846 when Henry Child Kirk entered in partnership with his father Samuel.
In 1861, when the other two sons (Charles D. and Clarence E. Kirk) entered the partnership, the name was changed to Samuel Kirk & Sons, reverting to Samuel Kirk & Son when they left the firm.
After the death of Samuel Kirk, the business was continued alone by his son until 1890 when his son Henry Child Kirk Jr. joined the partnership. In 1896 Henry Child Kirk Sr. formed a corporation.
In 1979 Stieff Company purchased the Kirk Company, forming the Kirk Stieff Company.
In 1990 Kirk Stieff was purchased by Brown-Forman (maker of Jack Daniels and other distilled spirits).
