According to Jane Spillman's and Estelle Sinclair's book, The Complete Cut and Engraved Glass of Corning, The Brooklyn Flint Glass Works " appeared on an 1827 map of Brooklyn" although some questions exist as to who founded the company. Around 1864, it was bought by Amory Houghton, Sr. and Jr.
In 1868, Houghton moved his company to Corning and re-named it the Corning Flint Glass Works. In 1875, the company re-organized and became Corning Glass Works under which name it remained in operation until 1989 when it became Corning, Inc.
Did you need more information than that? If so, let me know. I'm enclosing a brief chronology of Corning, Inc.
