CANNING JAR LIDS and ENCLOSURES
LOUIS R. BOYD
The name of Louis (or Lewis) R. Boyd is almost as commonly associated with
fruit jars as is Mason's, for his name is generic with the "Boyds Porcelain
Lined Caps" that closed fruit jars for many years. Yet very little is known
of the man personally. According to the 1870 U.S. Census Schedule for Brooklyn,
New York, he was born in 1832 in Connecticut, and was married to Connecticut-
born Ellen, who bore him two sons, Ralph B. and James H. Boyd.
His name appears on the fruit jar scene in New York City in 1862, when he
and two other men gained control of the patent rights for screw caps and jars
originally owned by John L. Mason. Boyd was listed in the 1863/1864 New York
City Directory as a "manufacturer" at 139 Elm Street, and as "treasurer" at
214 Pearl Street, address of the Sheet Metal Screw Company who sold Mason's
Patent jars and screw caps for the next eight years. On January 21, 1868,
Boyd was issued a patent for an Improved Locking-Ring for fruit jars, thatcontain-
ed as one of its features an iron stud soldered vertically onto the side.
This vertical wrench lug was to be used on most of the caps and bands made by the
Sheet Metal Screw Company and the Consolidated Fruit Jar Company for two
Boyd's most famous patent was granted on March 30, 1869, for an Improved
Mode of Preventing Corrosion in Metallic Caps. The patent text called for a
glass lining-plate to be inserted in the "well-known cap used with the so called
"Mason Jar," for the purpose of preventing the disagreeable flavor imparted
to the jar contents if the food came into contact with the zinc cap. The
earliest known application of the is patent was a zinc cap lettered on top TRADE MARK
COMMON SENSE PATD JUNE 2 57 OCT 27 57 JUNE 9 63 MAR 30 69.
These caps had a 1/16" thick clear glass liner, rather than the later milk
glass liners. The first three patent dates on the cap were those of John L. Mason and John
K. Chase respectively, while the last date was for Boyd's liner patent.
Another of Boyd's patents, issued on May 11, 1869, called for a zinc screw
nozzle (or band) with a permanently-attached glass plate spun into an
aperture on top of the band, in order to form a screw cap. This cap, with patent
date embossed on the glass, is known to exist, but is quite rare. Boyd was
assigned the July 18, 1871 patent of Taylor & Hodgetts that called for a glass or
porcelain lined cap.
On December 12, 1871, Boyd's Sheet Metal Screw Co. was merged with several
others to form the Consolidated Fruit Jar Company whose early offices were
located at the same address as Boyd's old company, 66 Warren Street, New York
City. In 1872 city directories, Boyd was listed as the president of the new
company, and he also served as a trustee during its early days. By 1873,
Boyd's name was no longer listed in directories as an officer of the company,
and it would seem that his association with Consolidated Fruit Jar Co. was as
short-lived as John L. Mason's.
Boyd's porcelain lining patent of Mar 30, 1869, was reissued on Oct 25 1881
to the Consolidated Fruit Jar Company, assignee of the late Lewis R. Boyd, de-
ceased. From this, we assume that Boyd died prior to 1881, but the exact
date is not yet known. [He died at age 42 in 1874-- RG Boyd]
Louis was born in Connecticut in 1832 [1870 US Census] and he married Ellen
A., maiden name unknown, in 1865. Their son, Ralph B. Boyd was born in New
York in 1866 and son James H. Boyd was born in Jan, 1870. On the 1870 U.S.
census Louis was listed as age 38, his wife Ellen age 29, his son Ralph age
4, and James at 5 months.
Louis Boyd was issued a number of patents not at all related to the fruit jar
business. He was issued patent #134,842 for an Oil Can Stopper, and #135,072
for an Oil Dripping Can. Boyd never produced any jars, but, rather his name
was so synonymous with the fruit jar industry that after his patents ran out,
other jar makers put his name on their jars just because they knew they would
sell very well.
