He was succeeded by his nephew, Charles Park (1820-98), who was his sister, Charlotte's son by Charles Park senior. In the 1881 census Charles Park, artist, and his nephew and clerk, Charles Percival Park (born c.1859), were recorded as living at 38 Russell Square. In due course, the business passed to this nephew and to Charles Park's son Charles Roberson Park (b.1867) (Roberson trade catalogues, e.g. Catalogue 1949, 36pp).
The business had a wide-ranging reputation which extended to certain specific areas. It specialised in supplying lay figures to artists, 1840s to 1920s, as documented in the Roberson archive. The archive includes a number of life-size lay figures (Woodcock 1998). Roberson's also became known for its restoration of pictures, being listed as picture liners from 1853, and later advertising testimonials from artists such as William Holman Hunt, 1897, George Clausen, 1899 and T.S. Cooper, as given in their catalogues (Artists Colours Materials, c.1931-2, 126pp).
