Footnotes

  • Thomas Willson is listed at 68 Great Queen Street, London as a furniture broker, auctioneer and appraiser (1799-1854). It has been suggested that the Willson's were good quality second-hand furniture dealers (brokers), although there is mention of a 'Furniture Works' in the 1838-54 entries, which may be a reference to a repair workshop rather than a manufactory. See G.Beard & C.Gilbert, Dictionary of English Furniture Makers 1660-1840 p.985.
