Bury, Curtis and Kennedy was a steam locomotive manufacturer in Liverpool, England.
Edward Bury (1794-1858) set up his works in 1826, under the name of Edward Bury and Company. He employed James Kennedy, who had gained experience of locomotive production under Robert Stephenson and Mather, Dixon and Company, to be his works foreman, later becoming a partner. About 1828 the firm moved to bigger premises in Love Lane, Liverpool, known as the Clarence Foundry.
In 1836 Edward Bury contracted to run the trains of the London and Birmingham Railway at a farthing per mile per passenger at a speed not to exceed 22.5 mph, the L&BR providing locomotives to Bury’s specification.
