CESargents script stamp on Stanley plane

Beechnut
I recently purchased an old Stanley Bailey No.7 plane. The right side of the sole has faint but still legible script lettering which says: C E Sargents. There might have been a few letters underneath this line, but it is unclear. The top of the sole is stamped with the expected Bailey No7.
Does anyone have an idea what this CE Sargents is? Could this have been a hardware or tool company that sold Stanley Bailey planes? I was just curious.
Many thanks.
