Hi! I have nothing ready on computer about the name Attfield, London so far, and I doubt that they existed in 1799, but I'll see what I can find in card and paper files. Cary is on file, mainly in the early 1900s, and what happened sometimes is that firms would buy in pianos from a London wholesale factory, and put an alias on them, mentioning London, but not the real maker's name.
